      Recent drop in speed

      Hi all,
      For the last week or so i've noticed a large drop in speed, whether browsing the net or using x-box live, both have become much slower and glitchy.
      Nothing has changed in my set-up. I've posted my stats below if thats any help.
      Thanks in advance,
      Chris.

      Re: Recent drop in speed

      I've got a longer line than you and capable of 4.5meg , regardless of your recent drop in speed you should be getting alot more.

      Downstream:
      Connection Speed 3776 kbps
      Line Attenuation 56.0 db
      Noise Margin 9.3 db

      As you can see I'm getting around 4meg , with a target SNR of 8.3.

      Could you please try plugging the router into the test socket and posting some more stats?
