      Slow throughput

      Afternoon guys,

      A bit of a strange one really, my sync speed is good but i'm getting slow throughput constantly buffering etc, when I ran a speedtest I was getting 0.7meg, now nothing has changed with my internal setup and when I reset the router the router does go away for a few hours then comes back again, I can only put it down to 2 issues, either a firmware update thats gone wrong or congestion on the network, i'm on the unlimited usage package so not IPStream, anyone got any experience with this? the issue only happened today and i intend to give it a few mor days before braving sky tech support but anyone having the same issue?

      Thanks!

      Are you using wireless?

      If so, try changing the wireless channel, start at 13 and work down.

      Also post your router stats. How to get your router statistics

      Post stats after a reboot and then when it goes slow and see if they change at all.
