How To Speed Up DSL Connection And Make It Faster

How To Speed Up DSL Connection And Make It Faster

Share/Bookmark

This is not uncommon to see people blaming their ISPs for their slow internet speed, and cursing because the actual speed they get is not what was promised in the package. Most of such users are non-technical and they need a little education regarding internet connections and how a DSL works. Mostly, the problem is inside your house, and you can tackle it without having to hire any professional service or calling the DSL support line many times. Some of the most common reasons of slow DSL connection, I have seen, in my 10 years long career in this field, are Inappropriate Line Filters, Electrical Interferences, Or old and low quality copper wire.

You would obviously know that DSL uses the legacy copper wiring that are used in telephonic connections for decades. In DSL, both the voice (telephonic conversation) and Data (Internet traffic) routes from the same copper line, and in case these lines are weak or have been deployed for many years, chances are bright that you won’t get the ideal DSL speed at your home. Not only the wiring inside your home, but lines outside your home, that connects your home to the main panel of your area, can play a vital part in decreasing the speed of internet for DSL connections.

First and the foremost thing that a DSL provider checks is that everything is working fine at their end, and if everything is fine there, they tend to visit the location and check the line that connects your home with the main panel of your area, if that is also fine, the problem would probably be in the lines inside your home.

Wires providing connection outside your house is the responsibility of Local Telephone Company or even your ISP, but the wiring inside your house are supposed to be corrected by yourself. And it’s your responsibility to ensure that these lines are as smooth as they are needed to be. Hence it is highly recommended to use high quality and reliable telephones inside your home that connects into the DSL modem, this will, in most cases, solve the speed issue.  However if still the speed of your DSL is not as good as you would want it to be, than follow the below mentioned steps to determine and rectify the problem.

–  Make use of filter, to distinguish the Voice from Data. Since the same line is being used for telephone as well as DSL, it is critical to use a filter to filter out the voice signals, which results in better and faster DSL connection.

–  Try to connect the modem as close to the main wall jack as possible. Try to connect the main telephone line of your home to the DSL Modem, this will ensure that the best signal enters the DSL Modem.

–   Reduce the Electromagnetic “noise” from the room where DSL Modem is in place. Remove some large electronics equipments from nearby and you might see better DSL speed.

There are of course better Internet Connections options available in the market, but if you really want to continue using DSL for internet, following the above mentioned steps would ensure that you get the optimum performance from your DSL connection.

Breaking The Land Speed Record

Breaking The Land Speed Record

Share/Bookmark

The land-speed record has long been a staple for brave men and women to try to topple. Ever since those black and white days of the early 1900s, people have been experimenting with speed and breaking ever and any record there is. It’s an adrenaline kick; a real demonstration of just how clever, technical and determined you and your team can be.

There have been hundreds of attempts to beat the hallowed land-speed record over the decades, but only a few have broken the record. It takes more than a big engine to break this bad-boy, and if you get it wrong you could be looking at almost certain death. The speeds it takes to even come close to the record are ridiculous, so to beat it you’re really going to need to have your wits about (and bleeding edge adapted aircraft technology behind you).

One of the most famous land-speed record attempts was done by the beautiful Silver Bullet. This car had it all: the looks, the huge engines, and the power. But what it didn’t have is record-breaking capability. The Silver Bullet boasted two 2,000hp V12 engines, which was apparently capable of propelling the car to around 250mph – that’s 250mph in 1930!

Unfortunately, the team couldn’t manage it, but the fact they even gave it a go proves just how determined petrol heads can be – and that passion still remains today.

Possibly the most famous land-speed record cars is the Blue Bird. Driven (or piloted) by Donald and Malcolm Campbell, the Blue Bird was capable of over 300mph. Unfortunately, Donald died at the hands of the Blue Bird in 1967 on Coniston Water, which just goes to show how dangerous record attempts can be.

If we fast forward a little, the current land-speed record is held by the ridiculous ThrustSSC, which toppled 763mph in 1997. It is still the only car that has broken the sound barrier, and while many years have passed since, nobody has been able to beat the record.

Thankfully, the push continues. The company, ThrustSSC, are hungry to beat their record. But not just by a few extra miles per hour. What they aim to hit is a ridiculous 1,000mph. That’s 1,000mph in a car piloted by one man.

As amazing as that would be, the team are struggling to go ahead with the project because of a lack of funds. Let’s just hope they can find the money and we can all see a record attempt for the 21st century. 1,000mph in a car is just ridiculous, so if they could pull it off the team would obviously be cemented in the pages of history forever.

Until that day, there are other teams hoping to take the mantle. The North American Eagle Project is underway and, if all goes well, they will hit 808mph. That will easily topple the current record, but the question remains: would their efforts be overshadowed by the aforementioned Bloodhound attempts?

Time will tell on that, but what is guaranteed is the next few years are looking extremely competitive and exciting in this super-fuelled, adrenaline-kicked world of jet-engines, brave people and a hell of a lot of technology. Best of luck to everyone involved!

Stealth at Thorpe Park currently holds the record for the fastest rollercoaster in Britain – visit it to feel a modicum of the Silver Bullet’s speed (and see just how fast these dare devils are travelling).
