      Download speed dies.

      There I was with my new 16M connection, happy as Larry, with download speeds of nearly 13mbps.
      Switched on this afternoon and everything was crawling (and that's an exaggeration.)
      Checked the stats and the sync speed was 14998.
      After messing around and kicking the cat, I rebooted the router by removing the power and bingo, all was back to normal.
      Do I have a problem or is this a known situation?
      I should add that I have a good line and never get disconnects. When I had adslmax the noise margin was down to below 5db and the router behaved perfectly.
      Since being moved to the max connection my download attenuation is 25db and the noise margin 7db

      Re: Download speed dies.

      i must admit that i have this every so often - although a router reboot almost always clears the problem

      I think its one of those "known bugs/features" that you have to get used to

      Still at least its not just me......

      Make sure that uPNP is switched off in the router menu, also worth posting your detailed stats as line errors can cause your connection to slow. Only servere line errors will cause disconnections.
