      Thumbs down Weird Problem!

      Since last night (Monday), my speed has dropped significantly - for no apparent reason - to the equivalent of 1mb (!). But when I look at my stats in my router, this is what it shows:

      Modem
      ADSL Firmware Version A2pB023o.d20h
      Modem Status Up
      DownStream Connection Speed 9212
      UpStream Connection Speed 796
      VPI 0
      VCI 38

      Not consistent with my download speed. And when I test uTorrent it goes up to 600kbps - not up to my ususal 1mb (of course, only with a fast torrent) - but way faster than any speed I'm achieving with a download manager or internet speed test (which reports 1.5mb connection!) which I have carried out.
      I have tried rebooting the router via the router manager, as I couldn't find a reset button on the new Sagem F@st 2504 router...

      I haven't made any system changes of late that you could attribute to this problem, so...

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks.

      Post your stats? Has DLM finished running on your line?

      Common ADSL jargon and abbreviations
      I don't know, but I've been with Sky since mid-March, and haven't had any problems...
      Why do my stats conflict with any 'speedtesting' site?

      Re: Weird Problem!

      You are syncing very low for your attenuation. Try plugging into the Test socket, link below, and take your stats from there.

      Irrespective of that, your download speed should be around 7-8 Mbs with your present sync. If you are not running Vista, try downloading and running TCPOptimiser, link below. Set the speed to 16000 and select the automatic settings.

      never look at speed test cause there are always wrong always try and acess your router to see your exact speed
