We signed up to VF Ultimate broadband and have had it up and running since Wednesday evening and it's been mostly great, but when I download files from Rapidshare, Mediafire, Megaupload, zshare, etc the speeds are always low (around 20-40kb/s). On downloads from apple and I can get up to 200kb/s, but not on these sites.

Can I fix this?

Router stats:


Interleave Path




   Data rate(Kbps)


   Noise Margin


   Output power(dBm)




Has been as high as 7600 down. Apparently we're 2.9k from the exchange

VF speedtest:

Last Result:
Download Speed: 2326 kbps (290.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 762 kbps (95.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 44 ms

We have Sky, but it's not plugged in, have tried router by itself (without filter), with firewall off but no difference.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Forgot to add that I tried downloading a file this arvo but it failed after 5mb - firewall reported a UDP flood
