Whose back haul are you on, as IDNet actually use Zens ironically.

Just swapped from Zen back to idnet after a year ish break due to moving house.

tested today pre and post Zen and iDnet regularly obtain 270/49 whereas Zen used to run at circa 200/40. I assume as no physical hardware has changed that its due to idnet pipes not being as congested as Zens? also pings are 6 not 8ms average and jitter is lower. and all that is over wi-fi as i cannot find my mac usbc ethernet dongle :(

Oh and router is a Draytek 2862 pre and post, just un and pw changed.

I fixed my issue by booting the PC with a music CD in each drive :dunno:

Well, it still doesn't work anyway.  I can select the DVD drive, as I could before, but it won't display the media to extract.

change properties of adobe to launch with admin privileges as standard ,it should then work ok
That really shouldn't be necessary. Doing that sort of thing weakens the OS against viruses and ransomware.

I've got a similar problem but it only seems to be happening with one program. My laptop is definitely seeing my DVD drive, but when I try to use Adobe to edit audio files, it just won't recognise it.

In order to provide 10Gbps using current modulation schemes, you'd need about 1GHz of bandwidth per mast (even allowing for MIMO and beam forming), which means you're working in the 30+GHz frequencies. That's only usable over short distances, with direct line of sight in clear air (a touch of rain or fog, and your signal's gone). Satellite TV in the UK uses frequencies around 11-12GHz.

With dark fibre, your potential bandwidth is limited only by the frequency of the light used (around 200THz for the infra red lasers used in fibre optics).

As to latency, unless someone works out how to communicate faster than light speed, we're pretty close to the limits already (just under 5.4ms per 1000 miles).

Thanks Andrue. I had got snippets of that but not the whole picture.

The tone graph on the Fritz is consistent.There is a noticeably greater range, and depth (except on upload) of tones across the spectrum, I suspect it's wouldn't be enough to justify moving to a more expensive package; and the decline in upload speeds is a bit irritating but let's hope it's sorted out as things settle down (or may be it's activated on the upload, but not yet active?) For the time being having a more reliable connection and less buffering are a welcome improvement anyway. I've also noticed a new feature that (within a small margin) the reported attainable on downloads is now constantly changing which would presumably seem to indicate that some software is busy doing its job.
Regards, Mervyn.

I think originally openreach required all modems attached to its network to support vectoring. It may still do. As long as your modem supports it (and it seems to) then things should just work. However how well they work is another matter. If your problem is cross-talk from other users and if those users all have vectoring capable modems it should improve your connection.

Otherwise..I dunno.

Now you probably know as much or more than I do :)
