      Annoying problems

      Ok so i really need some help here, recently got sky broadband, its been past the first 10days and so far...i think the service is absolutely terrible. At first everything seemed ok, i was getting full speeds for the max service i got, but then after about 2hours it all went down hill.
      Just a note, i was with uk-online previously and had tested with them, speeds of upto 24mb/s on my line fine, i had an 8mb service which ran perfect for around 2 years and a router which was flawless.
      Now back to sky...so far it fails to connect at anywhere near the maximum 16mb/s which is pretty ridiculous considering the previous tests. The line has find a nice completely unstable point around 5019/606 where it can stay connected but i cant use it for more than 2-3minutes before the speeds drop through the floor to completely unusable. I have tried replacing everything, even thinking of extracting the login details to see if it works at all with my other router.

      so to summerise i guess it goes like this:

      1. service consistently drops through the floor speed wise, to barely 1-2kb/s
      2. connected far below the 16mb/s even though the line has previously worked perfect at 24mb/s
      3. router at fault maybe? (dg934g)
      4. help, this service is really starting to annoy me...

      If you're only just connected then you're probably in DLM.

      If DLM is managing your connection down then that suggests a line/connection problem (that's probable not definite).

      Post your router stats plus a brief description of how your router is conected e.g. into master, via an extension etc.
