      Looking at your stats there's very little probability that Sky have capped you (a test socket comparison would confirm). The simple fact is that you have a noisy line. See the cabling and faceplate help forum for advice.

      With regard to the noise margin staying the same but the sync changing - that's how it works. See the first sticky in my signature for an explanation.

      Mate Im having exactly the same sort of problems as you are. I have an attenuation of 63.5 and for last couple of years have happily been synced at around 1856kbps...... until recently. Few weeks back cable to house broke bt guy replaced it but wired up houses wrong. Another guy came out and put me back on my original cables. I was syncing at 1856kbps when he left. My router held connection no problem for 72hours at that sync until I rebooted for some reason then my sync dropped right down to 412kbps reboot again it'll go to 860kbps. Its all over the place. I thought the guy doing the wires had fixed it all. Everyone around me is at a sync of around 1800kbps. Theres something suspicious going on with sky regarding this. I dont believe by any means the the line quality.....its never happened previously on pipex. Im going to record my router stats twice a day for a week for when I get on the sky again.....its bloody annoying. Let me know bud if you have any news about why yours is doing it!!!
      toby mine is same itnever did this before when i had bt home hub but since ive got sky it keeps dropping!! grrr

      Exactly...when I was with pipex for 2 years it never did this either..... just too coincidental for it to be working fine for days on at at 1856kbps then drop right down to 416kbps......

      Its bloody annoying......I just find it hard to believe that it can work flawlessly for 72hours at 1856kbps.....then drop right down to 416kbps......to me thats just a too bigger drop for there not to be a problem....
