Placed my order with them last decade. Still waiting.

To be fair SADV was closed for the festive period.

Do you know if its trenched or aerial you're hooking up into? I'm on Vuma Aerial here (not that I have much of a choice in the matter) and its surprisingly good for the little faith I have in wireless internet connections

Does it relate to all the lingerie/swimwear shopping you seem to be targeted by ads for? :D

Haha seems our forum chooses guess lingerie ads instead of classy stuff for me , ok having a weird issue net stays connected for like 3 mins and then auto disconnects yet my phone is still connected :( anyone know the reason ?

Also when i am downstairs my speed testing results are much better 9.47mb dload and 4mb upload so the only solid solution is a 20m LAN cable connection :(

You could try using an older modem as a repeater for the time being. Worked for me getting the same speed with the repeater and the main router is about 20+meters away.

Do you think aerial means wireless?
