      2.5 meg lost in last couple of weeks?????

      Hi All,

      I'm on the connect package, have been since Sept 06 (Even though my exchange was unbundled a day after I was connected!)

      Initially, speeds were pretty shocking, up and down all the time, after about a month, the connection seemed to stabalise and I got what I expected from my stats - a constant 6.7meg - any time of the day.

      For some weird reason, it dropped a couple of weeks ago and although the sync speed is the same, 8128/448 kbps, along with line stats being as they alway have been, the download speed is now a constant 4.1meg???

      Nout has changed with my set-up at home (Wiring, router settings etc) I've tried various download sites, maxed out the connection with a large file, all with the same 4.1meg result.

      Really annoying, to have lost 2.5meg.... do you think it's down to traffic shaping and sheer volume of users now on my exchange?

      Could be down to an overloaded exchange though the symptoms for that would usually be slow speeds at busy times and higher speeds when quiet - not constant through the day.

      Assuming you are connected by wire (wireless will often give a restricted speed), the first thing to do would be to make sure your TCP/IP settings are correct. See this post.

      I'm on the Mid Package and when I was first connected my speed was great, around 7Mb. That was in September and now a couple of months down the line my speed is never really any greater than 5Mb. I tried various things but put it down to the fact there was simply more customers connected now at my exchange.
