      When its fast its fast....when its not....

      Hey all,

      New user here, had sky activated on Tuesday (i should say thats when i first signed in as thats when i received the router.)

      I had awesome speeds up until tonight where my connection speeds seem to have dropped big time. I have rebooted a couple of times and even power cycled a few times. Each time getting a new ip address but not speeding it up.

      Do Sky employ evening bandwidth throttling?

      Below are my router stats - anything there look wrong? (just noticed it obviously resets on power cycle???)

      Code:

      Re: When its fast its fast....when its not....

      am in the master socket, have also tried extension sockets.

      The thing is - it has been fine - which leads me to beleive that its not socket related. But i could be wrong.

      On the max connection and 1.5km from the exchange.
      Tis very strange - all was going well, then this evening i fire up WOW and can hardly play. Check some ftp downloads from my webserver - of which i would normally get around 800kbps - and was doing first thing this morning, now im racking out about 80kbps.

      Thanks for quick reply.

      Re: When its fast its fast....when its not....

      not tried the test socket yet - havent dug under all the stuff thats around it to get there for any amount of time

      Im getting about 300kb/sec from the openzone file - when i tested that same file yesterday i was over 1mb/sec

      Is disconnecting / reconnecting from the router menu going to help "sync" at a higher level? do i do it until i get a decent connection speeD?

      first, prob best to change ur profile cause ur not on Base now are you!! lol!!

      if u were syncing at 13MB before and now only 3.7MB now something has definately happened to ur line/connection so trying the test socket will rule out the issue being down to internal wiring....have you had bad weather recently? do u have overhead phone lines?

      Hehe will change profile in a sec.

      No bad weather - the oposite actually - weirdly.

      And no overheard lines.

      Do all sockets have a test socket? im worried the wiring might be quiet old :s

      The other thing - ive only been setup for a couple of days and i heard rumours about the line being "tweaked" etc during a setup phase?

      Oh and on my router connection page - i sometimes get a "lcp down" message - whats the lcp and what implications does that have?

      no, only the master (if its a new style NTE-5 one) will have a test socket in it....the front of the socket will have split running though it, like this: -

      http://www.clarity.it/telecoms/nte5_faceoff.jpg

      if ur master has this then remove the front and plug the filter into the socket on the right and see what happens...

      Re: When its fast its fast....when its not....

      Nah dont have one of them. We have only just moved here and the wiring is pretty old - is putting one in something that i can do myself?

      Any idea on this LCP down thing? a search seems to suggest its a remote problem when connecting rather than something my end, but that just might be me jumping on the ever growing bandwagon.

      Appreciate your help btw.

      all lcp is, is a server sky's end, the router needs to connect to it to use the internet, if it says lcp down, it means no internet available, and there is either a problem at local exchange such as an outage, etc, or there's a problem sky's end and you need to ring them to find out(don't ring your local exchange lol).
