    Why you want to stabilise it? (what is wrong with it now?)

    What system are you currently using??

    Stabilise?

    If your connection is dropping out then its most probably the exchange/ISP tbh.

    If your connection is dropping, it could be your bandwith if your on LLU, if your on standard IP stream then you need to make sure that all of your active telephony sockets are using a microfilter. Also depends on what time of day your connecting it could be the contention ratio, or if your using P2P then it could be traffic shaping

    If he's using wireless then it's prob interference and packet dropping - but without knowing what he is currently using and what the problem is in more detail then everything is just a wild guess!!!

    ok, then yeah it might be quicker, as the speedtouch you're using is a USB connection - which is always gonna be slower than ethernet or wireless.

    make sure your computer has an ethernet network card though before making the swap, otherwise you'll need to open the PC and get one of them too!!

    Wireless using 802.11g is 54Mbps or can handle 108Mbps if the signal is strong.
    Wireless using 802.11b is 11Mbps at full speed

    USB depends on the quality:
    USB 1.0 (most common in slightly older equipment) is 1.5Mbps
    USB 2.0 most common in current equipment is 12Mbps
    USB 2.0 using "High Speed" support is 480Mbps - but most USB equipment does not support "High Speed" usage.

    Ethernet is either 10Mbps, 100Mbps or 1Gbps (depending on network card at both ends)

    As your BB connection is so slow you'd be hard pushed to see the difference. Wireless can be slower than USB2.0 because of the error checking, check bits and retransmission of data.

    As for changing the speedtouch for a router because you heard a speed touch is rubbish is a load of cack. Speedtouches do the job. There are some incompatibility problems out there but they are few and far between. You'll obviously need a decent firewall but TBH you should have one whether your on the net using a modem or a router.
    Its a jam thing
