      power cut/surge may also have afected your extension, could poss try without extension (router into master) or poss buy new extension ?

      could also be router, but prob easier to test router in master socket

      Ive just got a normal filter thing coming out of my phone socket, then a 10m dsl cable from the front room to this room (where the router is). Only way for it to reach unfortunately.

      And yes im using wired.

      id definately say but a 10m ethernet cable instead as i'd be inclined to think that's where the issue is....Sky will only ask you the same if u call them so best rule it out now rather than get frustrated on the phone

      even move the PC to the socket this weekend purely to test and see what happens

      Re: Download Speed Drops

      Yeh i'll try the longer ethernet cable, thanks mate. Just strange because Ive had no problems using an extended dsl cable for years and was at full download speed (consistantly) with sky for months!

      Anyway, thanks again.
