You aren't going to get the best performance of your highspeed always. Stuff like this varies in wiring both outside and inside your home, try getting a data telephone cord (usually gray and thicker that a regular phoneline or a good phoneline, the length of your ethernet cable, the distance between your company's service providing plant and your house. Try getting a faster connecton speed.

What Is The minimum internet speed Netfix will streamline and operate decently? Will it work with any internet provider? how to get signal to my Samsung blue ray from my wifi router?


This is from Netflix Website.

Several ISP providers are throttling Netflix because they consume a huge amount of bandwidth that the ISP does not get additional revenue for. Check with your neighbors and see what they are using.
Internet Connection Speed Recommendations Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.
  • 0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
  • 1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
  • 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
  • 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
  • 25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality
HD Video Quality
Movies and TV shows we have available in high definition will play in 720p or better with a fast enough internet connection. To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have an HD plan, then set your video quality setting to High in the Playback Settings for your account.
Netflix Bandwidth Usage
Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower-quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your Internet service, you canManage Bandwidth Usage by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.

Tip

Check your broadband speed and report it as a Slow/Not Spot


I have a maximum download (connection) speed of 3.5MB at my exchange which is a Local Loop Unbundling or LLU from which I live about 5km as the crow files.

My expected maximum will be only 70% of this at about 2.5MB due to signal to noise ratio loss on the BT line, dont bother trying to change your MTU or any TCP tweak settings you will probably cause more problems with the speed becoming lower maybe even cutting yourself off your own broadband connection

However most ISP use Local Loop Unbundling is the process by which third party networkoperators are able to install equipment in to BT telephone exchanges in order to provide their own services without having to touch BT's network. Only the copper pair from the exchange to the premises, which remains the property of BT, is used by the third party. Use SamKnowsBest to check what options you have at your local BT exchange


BT copper line MAX is only 8MB irrespective of the the LLU that you use this means your ISP hardware.

Optical Cables MAX is 20MB and only Virgin Media in the UK can use this transmission medium.


I used to get only 750kbps which is not even 1MB now I can get double that between about 1500kbps - 1800kbps which is still only 1.8MB depending upon the time of day.

Also make sure that your connection is not shared with another user they will steal your bandwidth ensure that if you are using wireless use a WEP or even better a WPA-PSK encryption. Close all instances of P2P or FTP uploading during the speed test.

My Results as a comparision

http://speed.io/backend/result/24801225?pID=project1 750 Kbps
http://speed.io/backend/result/27957779?pID=project1 1500 Kbps
http://speed.io/backend/result/27959284?pID=project1 1800 Kbps

There is not a lot you can do other than report this slow speed to this website the more they can build up a picture of the bad or NOT SPOT areas then your ISP will have to act to ensure that you don't move your service to another provider.

http://www.broadband-notspot.org.uk/

NOTE:
If you have the same problem as me then unless you can get Virgin Media Cable that can supply upto 20MB download speeds then BT maximum 8MB speed will be your limit expect to get about 4MB using the BT copper wired pair and your ISP's own router if you live over 5 miles from the exchange.

Max wireless speed on that router is 11Mbps theoretical. That is an ancient router. Buy a new router N standard You will get the same wired or wireless. N standard with triple band will run at 480Mbps, dual at about 300Mbps and single at 150Mbps.

connect the broadband modem to the internet port of your router (probably is blue). Then connect your pc to the router.

Hello, i have got a linksys wireless-G Broadband router, i wanted to know if i need a modem to get it connected with internet.


Yes you need a modem in your computer to get it connected. Visit www.belarc.com and download the system analyser. It will tell if you have suitable modem or not. Since your machine likely have a modem, bit it's suitability . Since you will need a 1000/and up to connect at that speed.

Download speed slows when router is on line.


If the router is offline then your not downloading anything, most down loads start fast then fall to a level your pc can handle, aka your connection speed.
