I'm about to try to confirm that a friend is not getting the speed
expected on their broadband service.
So I just thought I'd check here using 3 different laptops connected in
turn to the same ethernet port on the router.
The BT tester and others say I'm getting just over 4Mbps down, but the
ThinkBroadband tester always shows 2.4Mbps and sometimes much lower.
The XP and W7 machines are consistent, the Vista machine returns slower
results. At one point Think Broadband said it was only getting 600kbps.
Is this all normal, or do I have to try to fault find the Vista machine?
Everything looks OK in Device Manager etc.
Also, the BT speed tester says not to test again within on hour. Is
there a technical reason for this, or is it just to keep the usage down?
