      Why not try rebooting it again to see what speeds you sync at?

      You don't have a BRAs profile on SKY - BT use the BRAs system. Similarly there is no training period on SKY.
      It could be that the router synced during a period of high noise (peak time - evening) and therefore your sync is lower than expected - in which case, switch your router off and on again during an off peak period (middle of the night / first thing in the morning).

      I think that goes against the usual advice, which is to boot your router at a busy time to give you a better chance of keeping your SNR up. Booting when it is busy allows the router to sync at at least 6.9, which will then rise during the quiet periods. Switching the router off should not have the effect you describe, many switch their router off, when not in use. Talktalk is one ISP that recommends this as a power saving action.

      Apologies, I was assuming the OP wanted a higher sync rate, and not necessarily a stable line!
