      Wireless? Sounds like you're choking a poor quality wireless connection.

      Cannot tell without the SNR and attenuation.

      Just copy and paste them is so we can see.

      That would indicate that your line has deteriorated since then.

      And the answer to my question (post #2) whether this is a wireless connection is . . . ?

      They're not all that difficult to interpret as long as you know the basics. Start with the first sticky in my signature, then the second part of this one if you can get access to the line errors with your router model. I wrote both quite some time ago so they're not completely up to date with the new routers but the principles still apply, though if you're a Connect customer (which is what you've put in your profile), it's a little more complicated due to the BTIPstream product using RAMBo, BRAS profiles etc.

      That can't hurt but the original post seems to be referring to low throughput compared to sync and slow surfing when downloading, so the basic stats probably won't tell you too much of any relevance. The line errors might but line errors are one of the least likely causes of the problem described. With throughput issues (compared to sync) the first two things to exclude would be a non reliable method of speed testing followed by a wireless signal quality issue. As the problem also refers to a form of connection choking then wireless moves to the top.

      Just my opinion - doesn't mean I'm right in this case
