Resetting the router
Having talked with Sky customer support on numerous occations regarding loss of connection and slow speeds, they got my connection and speeds to what they should be by hitting thr reset button on the router. They told me that this was the only way to get my connection back right and that if it ever happens again, this is what i should do. Surely this must not be the only answer to this problem. I have read almost every post on this site to find an answer to this but with no success. Anyone else having similar problems with a wired router?

there is a post somewhere stating that after 9pm if router is rebooted it should be okay 24/7 but have not tried it myself, I myself have found after a few days my connection on speed tests goes from 11064 to 7034 so have to do the same .

Frustrating the hell outta me. Have to do a lot of tinkering with the router ie port forwarding etc. Everytime I reset I have to set the lot up again. I'll give it a few days to see if it stabilises and try the after 9.00pm reset to see if that works. If it doesn't then regretably will have to cancel before its too late

Why don't you just Backup Settings your setting and then reload them again ?Ray
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

You should reboot not reset.
Reboot through the router interface by preference or by disconnecting and reconnecting the power to the router.
