      My signal strength is, ostensibly, excellent. On a good day (i.e. 10 secs after reboot) I get about 12MB wireless. And then 3 hours later it has dropped to about 250KB. That degree of dissipation, with no discernible loss of signal strength, is unbelievable.

      I'd be interested to see the reply to your question Steve. I suppose it helps that I'm not alone, but I cannot believe that innumerable exchanges are beset by exactly the same problem. I'm nowhere near Newbury so this defect must be widespread!

      They must know that there is a widespread problem - so why aren't they coming clean about it?

      Re: Dismally Poor Speed

      But this is the point of this thread. My stats were great so there was no obvious reason why my speeds were (and are) so bad. Current stats are:

      DSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 15323 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 12.0 db 6.7 db
      Noise Margin 14.3 db 14.0 db

      but my speed frequently reduces to less than 300KB.
