      Question net slowed, stats changed?

      My broadband has slowed a lot more than usual at night just recently. Ive checked on the router stats and the noise levels are a lot different from what they used to be, could this be a problem with the router/wiring?

      New stats:

      main thing is you're on connect - which is traffic shaped during peak hours (5-midnight)...

      21CN in itself will make no difference to broadband. It is not until WBC (Wholesale Broadband Connect=ADSL2+) is enabled at an exchange that there may be a difference.

      The OP has probably just noticed he is being throttled. It is difficult to see how the attenuations could change so much, I suspect a glitch in the original reading, or the speed/noise margin would have altered considerably.

      The speed has always been throttled/shaped at 5pm on the dot. Its just recently that the stats have changed so much. I have always run through an extension but it never made a difference to the stats if i was plugged directly into the master socket or at the end of a 10m extension. Could there be an internal problem with the extension wiring that cant be seen? My Sagem black router does get quite hot if left on all day, might this be the problem?

      Re: net slowed, stats changed?

      I have just put an old wireless card back into my computer and put the router straight into the main socket instead of the extension and got these new stats, they are a lot different again. It must be the extension breaking down or something like that, the nets still quite slow though-till midnight at least.

      With extension

      Connect will always be slow till midnight, it is throttled to death.

      You attenuation without the extension lead is very good and more than doubles when using it so it is causing some problems. The fact that you are syncing at the top end for Sky Connect with or wihout it means that it isn't actually affecting your connected speed as you could easily get 20mb on the LLU product.

      I wish they would get LLU in my exchange, they have done everyone around here but this one. I can see the exchange from my front garden, its maybe half a km by road away.Only orange have LLU in the exchange and their website says im not in an orange area.During the day connect is excellent, 500-700kbps no problem. I can even download 3 files at once, all running at 600+kbps.Would the 21CN make any difference to evening speeds?
