      Speed problems

      Not sure if my router firmware has been upgraded but since the last few weeks my connection has been noticably slower (especially browsing) and has gone from downloading at the full 16mb to 10mb approx when maxed out.

      Some info from my router:

      Firmware Version
      V1.03.87

      ADSL Firmware Version
      A2pB023b.d20e

      DownStream Connection Speed
      10070 kbps

      UpStream Connection Speed
      606 kbps

      Can anyone possibly help or point me in the right direction as to whats gone wrong (was faultless previously and nice n fast)

      6 meg? Your router is syncing at 10?

      I am not too sure it is DLM to blame, for one thing when DLM is being applied it increases the Upload on Max to 795/6. The UL here is fairly low for ADSL2+.

      Post your detailed stats and someone may get an idea. Have you made any changes to your wiring, bought new gear for the phone line or such like?
