      Router dropped connection

      Hey all,

      My router was recently connecting downstream at about 3.5MB (checked via the hub manager), & i was getting d/l speeds of 2.9MB max. Now all of a sudden my downstrean connection has dropped to 2MB!!!!

      Does this mean i've been capped??

      On a side note, i had to knock the electric off yesterdat at 1 point - could this be the cause??

      Many thanks

      no probs, it could just be that the router re-synced at a noisy time (this would make it sync lower, if still low when you reboot post back your stats
