DO you have anything else downloading, e.g torrents or even anything like a virus checker on auto-update, they may be using your bandwith.

Other than that it goes on how far you live from the exchange. Will be the same speed with all isp's except cable.

It may look idle but is it doing something in the background, e.g auto-upgrade.

Gail are you wireless ??
Or do you have a cable into your router?

If your wireless it can be a hundred things causing the
sigal to drop, ie Baby monitors, mobile phones...

Best advice is to monitor it over a few days
before you start to panic wink

It can also depend upon the speed tester program,
as in where is it in the world etc..

3804.69 Kbps = me with a torrent running with a cable (8mb Sky)
1751.32 Kbps = Gail (8mb Sky)

i suspect your wireless and thats why?
