So pleased not just me...
Our 'Max' connection has been active since Wednesday.
When running correctly the connection is really quick (12,000 or so), but then slows to a crawl, requiring a router reboot.
Strangly though, a speed test at this point suggest that the upload speed doesn't drop - It is only the download speed.
Any help greatly recieved.

@ bvarsani I had this problem for about two days a week after I was connected. I affected firefox and IE. I could max out my sync speed on bit torrent, but was getting dial up results on any browser based downloads. I tried loads of stuff and nothing worked. Then just as suddenly as it had started, it stopped! I never found out what caused it. If you search my posts on here you will find a thread I started. I think it was called "need your help confusing problem", or something.

I've just been through this entire thread; having been experiencing the same problems of very slow internet speeds in the region of 200Kbps at times- a reboot of the router resolves the problem but very annoying.
Prior to SKY BB, i was with BT for about 5 years and never had any problems.

Oh boy my connection is in the can tonight! The noise margin keeps on going below low and it disconnects. Only rebooting helps ! Thing is I've had to reboot like 10 times tonight so far! The noise margin starts at about 7 then drops to below 5 in 15 mins. Anything below 5 means the ppp connection goes down for me.
I've got my router set up with auto wireless and upnp turned off btw..

Mine had been working perfectly since Friday when I changed the settings but tonight it went poo again, requiring several reboots. Arrgh!
