i am with sky BB and have their router -54MBPS- and i am on the 2 meg line supposedly so my question is, can i get a router that allows 128MBPS to speed up my line as i am nowhere near getting 2meg, or has this got nothing to do with my download speeds etc?? if so why buy a more expensive router that does nothing more than a cheap one.
can someone please explain??
thanks in advance

A faster router will not speed up your connection. It is dictated by the distance and quality of your phone line from the telephone exchange and the actual service you receive, in your case 2mbps. The biggest difference you would notice is if you plugged the router directly into the main BT socket and disconnected all other telephone equipment (including your Sky box) That will give you the best reading possible for your line. If it is vastly different from what you are now getting then there is a problem with your extension wiring.
Also, make sure that every telephone socket which has something in it has a good microfilter (including your Sky box)
