Internet speed

At the moment I have a BT voyager 205 ADSL router, is it possible to increase the speed by: changing the router, or installing some software without changing internet services?

Thanks

No, the limiting factor is your ISP. They will only give you a certain amount of bandwidth. If you want to go quicker, move to a higher bandwidth package either with the same ISP or a different one.

..look at the various methods of 'tweaking' out there on the adsl forums - you can gain quite a percentage improvement from that.

Don't forget, more 'bandwidth' isn't necessarily quicker - if you are only downloading a 100k web page it will come at the same speed down a 512MB pipe or a 1GB pipe..the latency is the key.
