cyril7: Hi, two things I have noted in your current modem stats, firstly its a Vodafone Echolife modem, and two its still stuck on 7.6Mb/s. This seems to be a well known issue and had I known the modem was the model it is I would have mentioned it.

There is a firmware upgrade on the Voda site, put that in and you should see a significant speed increase.


Thanks, i checked out the firmware and it was the same version as the one listed on the site.

Based on the idea that the modem might also be at fault, i purchased a cheap TP-Link modem from PB Tech today to test. So far the speeds of download are much better.

I also was able to test using a friends TCL username and password and can get nearly 800kbps upload now and around 20mbps down.

Just need to wait till my DSL connection is updated and I should be good to go!

Just an update for those interested. Got our new DSL plan sorted and am enjoying faster download and upload speeds all round.

Thanks again to all those that helped, and special thanks to Cyril for all your help, you are amazing!
