    Hi,

    My router says:

    (Original post by Netgear DG834PN router)
    DownStream Connection Speed 6749 kbps
    UpStream Connection Speed 447 kbps
    So, I should be getting round about 6meg (as expected) however, the majority of speed test websites I've been on say I get about 3-4meg. Which one is the truth?

    Thanks x

    That speed is just the connection you have to the ISP rather than the actual real speed of downloading websites.

    I think AT82 is right here.

    also, i'd like to add that I might have to join you in being another one of TSR's moderate muslims

    All an ISP does is give you a leased connection to a big internet gateway. In a lot of cases all an ISP does is lease a massive dataline from another provider.
