      Evening Lag Spikes

      Hi there all, I was hoping someone might be able to help me with an issue I've been having.

      Our house's broadband had been faultless since we first joined BT a few years ago. Over the last year or we switched to sky unlimited and things were running fine. However over the last month we've been suffering from lag spikes in the evening at random for brief periods. Around a week ago I managed to get a speed test done during one which gave me results along the lines of a ping of 5,000 and a download speed of around 0.05 megs.

      As I said these spikes last for short intervals (around 1 or 2 minutes) then the service resumes as normal. This however is incredibly disruptive for gaming and watching streaming content such as BBC live which are the main reasons I use the service. Next time a spike occurs I'll try and get another speed check and my router stats, however at the moment my stats are:

      System Up Time: 461:43:25
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 41269869 65370340 0 1292 1292 461:42:19
      LAN 56378324 34584058 0 1291 1291 461:43:25
      WLAN 6292021 3821711 0 1340501 429861 00:26:42
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10239 kbps 672 kbps
      Line Attenuation 36.5db 22.9db
      Noise Margin 7.8db 9.0db

      I'd be very appreciative if anybody had an idea of what's wrong with my connection, if not a solution for it.

      Your upload sync is a bit low. This could indicate a problem with your filter or your line. Changing the Sky filter for a better quality one might help.

      There are also some exchanges being effected by poor out put to the internet backbone. When you are having one of the slowdowns, run a tracert to bbc.co.uk in a Command Prompt. That may show where the holdup is.
