No worries mate
I've got a Question it's been 10 days now since my infinity was installed and throughout I was getting 35-37Mb Download And 7-8Mb Up and then all of a sudden the IP profile was changed on my download speed and now I only get around 23-24Mb i'm just wondering why the drop in 10Mb and also my Upload has dropped aswell by its now 4Mb
> Download speedachieved during the test was - 22234 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 12000-24198 Kbps .
IP Profile for your line is -24198 Kbps
>Upload speed achieved during the test was - 3008 Kbps
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 10000 Kbps
Hi all, apologies for my belated reply, I was working yesterday.
Thanks for all your input. I tried everything (lost connection totally a number of times), thank god for the Diagnose and Repair feature in Windows 7! I managed to get the correct BT infinity speed of 39m down 9m up over wireless but as soon as I had that working my drobo would die. I spent about 5 hours on it last night and have given up. I am just going to pay someone to run an external CAT 5 from my router directly to my switch.
We have had it for a while, after a week or so the down speed drops to about 3Mbps, a reset gets it back to mid 30s.
But today it keeps failing.
A few minutes - lose internet and so on.
Right have had the Infinity installed and the speed I get is
Lets hope this lasts
Do you ever switch it off?
Agree with the above. Just reboot all your equipment.
Just heard that the speeds should be going up to 80mbps spring of next year as they have just gotten the final approval from the required authorities. Also seen that the FTTP offering will be going up from 110mbps to 300mbps at the same time.
Booohooo!! :'( I would be happy even to get over 10Mb download, I wish BT (or even Sky) would pull their fingers out and sort out my local green box!!
No but it did go off (by itself) twice
I'm getting Infinity installed on the 14th and am currently using 84mbps homeplugs.
I'm estimated at getting 30 meg speeds, and would like to know if i need to upgrade my plugs and if 200mbps will be ok or just got for the 1gbps plugs?
Any advise appreciated.
Unless you have any requirement for faster transfers on your local network between local computers I'd stick with what you already have
I just had to ditch my 200mb homeplugs and connect the pc directly. The wiring in my house could not handle the speed.
Cheers chap, I currently use homeplugs to transfer from my master socket to the PC, as the lowly speeds I get at the moment dont make any difference to if i were connected directly.
I think I will move my PC to the mastersocket when the BT engineer comes to make sure i get as much speed to it as possible, so would only be connecting the homeplugs to my nic box which connects to the TV, XBOX & Bluray player.
I know our exchange has been enabled, but since then our connection has been considerably less reliable and we still aren't able to get the new speeds.
Does any one know
a) How we find out which cabinet we are connected to.
b) How we find out if/when that cabinet will be upgraded.
Fed up with BT. Would like to line their senior management up against a wall and shoot them.
Just checked my line and found that I am now on fastpath instead of being interleaved. This has knocked about 10ms of my ping time. Been waiting for ages for this to happen.
Anyone "updated" their modem with new firmware yet?
The BT HH3 updates the firmware automatically, apparently!
I may have misunderstood here, but I thought that Infinity required 2 pieces of new hardware-the Home Hub 3 (which is a wireless N router) and a seperate modem (that connects to the WAN port on the HH3).
My Infinity install is scheduled for Wednesday and (as promised) Royal Mail have just delivered my Infinity equipment, but it's just a Home Hub 3.
So no modem has arrived, so they've either not sent it, or does the engineer bring it with him on install date?
It does actually say when you are ordering the procedure but yeah the engineer brings it with him
My order was done over the phone following an email from me to Ian Livingstone due to major dramas when I tried to sign up initially.
I remember them saying that the equipment gets sent by post (and that I will need a HH and a seperate modem), but not that the engineer brings the modem, but if that's the case then all's good.
It does beg the question that if the engineer is bringing the modem, why can't he bring the HH too, instead of sending it via RM at a cost of £6?
I suspect that it is because the Openreach engineer installs ALL FTTC products, not just BT's and so although the Openreach supplied modem is common to all, the router will be ISP specific.
Hmmm-fair enough, but if the engineer knows he's going do do an Infinity install for a new or existing customer, surely they could carry/supply the Home Hubs too?
Anyway, no big deal. The HH is here and Wednesday nearly is too!
Im talking about the openreach modem. They have found a way to put original firmware on it so you can modify it, see the stats and use it with adsl. Ive done it with mind and was just wondering if anyone else had done it.
It saves the engineer carrying loads of different modems and routers with them.
Short list of modem/routers we carry-
BT Business hub
BT Business Fibre Hub
There are a few others but I cant remember them off the top of my head. When you consider we keep a couple of each for spares, how many boxes that is.
Fair point, thank you for the info.
I had not heard this was possible. What did you have to do to get it to show stats? Was that just for adsl or for fibre too, as I'm on the FTTP trial in MK?
BT are currently doing some work outside my house, so my Dad asked them what they were doing and the engineers told him they were installing Infinity. The chap also said it would be available next month...
However on the SamKnows site, it says 1/3/12, and on the BT site is says 31/12/12...
What do you think the chances of it happening this year are?
The website said end of November for my exchange (after being put back four times). It was avaliable earlier from the start of September.
Was fibre too. I just followed this guide. http://huaweihg612hacking.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/hg612_unlock_instructions_v1-2.pdf
The firmware file is on that site too.
