View Full Version : Slow Thompson Router?

Had a interesting experience with a Thompson TG858 v7 ADSL router this morning.

I obtained the router from a business customer had been upgraded.
I thought that I would replace my old Dynalink \ Wireless D-link combo for the Thompson.

Anyway my son complained about the speed of the new set up.

So I did some speed testing. (repeated 3 times)

Thompson Download speed 3000 mbps Dynalink 5000mbps.

All using the same wire connected to the same computer.

Now when I say repeated I mean swapping over routers and reconnecting to ISP

Anyone any idea why for the speed difference?

Well I just got broadband with a Thomson TG585 V8 which has speed the same - 3000mbps (with cable connection), but have three family notebooks/net books connected wirelessly, that have speeds twice that at 6mbps. My phone extension is too long at about 25 feet (since upstairs), so may have to get a USB wireless adapter. But fast enough for me.

How long is the phone extension?
