      Looking at those stats, Most likely Outside interferance (REIN Interferance probably) Or you have dodgy joint somewhere on the line or at the drop point.

      Do you have overhead telephone cables?

      Plug a corded phone into the Test socket, dial one digit and listen. Do you hear any crackles or other noise?

      It might be advisable to download and run Routerstas Lite from Internet Software for a period. Power cycle your router by pulling out the power plug for a minute then put it back in. This should resync you with the exchange with a noise margin of 7dbs. Check how this moves over a 24 hour period.

      also a temp solution is to reboot your router between 10pm and midnight as this is when noise is highest on your line and your line will synch at the best speed for the noise and should stay up all day.

      I had this problem when I was on Sky and in the 18 months I was with them nothing could be done, soon as I move to O2 my line is mega stable.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!
