      Your CRC errors "line errors " are very high which could be your problem! they ideally should be less than 0.1% of the SF figure so from your stats above they shouldn't be higher than 3044 yours are 81223. You may have a wiring issue. Firstly open up all sockets and make sure only pins 2 and 5 are connected. If you can find you master which is usually the one with a split face plate i.e. front plate is in 2 halves, if you remove the lower half you should find a test socket behind there, if you plug your router in there it will isolate you from any extension wiring so if things improve you know it is your wiring causing the problem. If your master isn't that type then try the wiring pin 2 and 5 thing.
      Thanks I will try this now, why on earth would they put my master in my airing cupboard that just seems crazy and is very annoying for me as ill need a super long ether net cable for my xbox, if i find it is the wiring does it cost alot to have it fixed.

      Can usually be sorted out yourself, disconnecting all wires apart from 2 and 5 can have a dramatic effect it fixed my problems. Also avoid having any plug in extension phone cables plugged in anywhere even away from the router connection, they are usually cheap crap cable that can introduce noise and errors.

      Just to add to Koala5's comments, it is not a very good idea to have the router in a cupboard. This Netgear, in particular, is very susceptible to overheating, it really wants to be in an open area with some air circulation. A longer ADSL cable so that the router can be situated outside the cupboard would be a better solution. You will find longer ADSL cables HERE if you want to go this way.

      ok now ive been up and running for a little while to the main test port i can definately tell that was the problem I've had no cut outs at all, the problem is there isnt even a power socket in the cupboard so i have cables trailing all over my entrance hall, when u say about having only wires 2and 5 connected do u mean on the extension port i am using?

      thanks alot guys things are starting to get solved

      If you have reasonably modern phones you can quite safely disconnect this wire in all of your sockets. Just remove the front plate of the socket and ease the wire off the No3 terminal. You may even find, after you do this that you will get better results with the router plugged into an extension socket, although you will always get the best results from the Master socket. Remember too that you need filters on all appliances plugged into the phone line, no matter where the router is plugged in.

      Re: speed keeps droping to 0 then climbing up again

      Hi

      I am having very similar problems to what you were experiencing. I download quite a bit and i find the downloads start off very fast then slow down to 20-100k, where as then can peak up to 1500k from a multi connection download tool (1.5meg), if i download with a single connection i get max 603k, which i think is pretty normal. When things slow down i tend to reboot the router and things usually speed up again but then can slow down or be good for a while. Is this isp shaping?

      I have just reboot my router so i am waiting to get a good days worth of logs before posting this.

      Any thoughts? let me know if u need additional info.

      thanks

      Knobby

      Well you could go through the advice on this thread, i.e. try the test socket etc etc etc. Sky do not use traffic shaping.
