Another simple, yet important change to speed up a customer’s broadband connection. Indeed, prior to this change, the router was losing signal from the TalkTalk provider. The office is based in Cothem Hill, in Clifton/Redland Bristol.
The office is based in an old Victorian / Georgian property. The main ADSL phone line had a splitter and a then a filter in one socket, and a long phone cable, linked to another filter in the other. The router was in this filter half way across the office.
I removed the splitter, the extension lead and relocated the router near the phone line. I doubled the broadband speeds. Fantastic.
We are going to replace the old router with a new N Series router and Dongle on the PC downstairs, and with twice the speed, a better wireless single, all will be well.
