hi i have a broadband connection with orange with a d link router on 2mb speed the problem is the isp has automaticly upgraded the speed to 7.5 mb and my internet speed is very slow i am annoyed at this as now they say i must get a livebox router from them as they say mine cant cope with the speed but i must upgrade and agree to another 12 month contract to get one free as i refused to pay for one, is there any truth in what they say is there any setting i can change with my router to cope with the speed thanks

Your router should not have any problem with the increase in speeds - I've the same router and get about 6.5 on average via BT.

I`ve also used the same router with speeds in excess of 2Mb. How recently did they upgrade the speed? I believe it may take 10 days or so to establish the optimum speed for your line.
