      151.230.x.x IP and Half Speed!

      What on earth is going on here then?

      Lost internet connection and ended up on a 151.230 address (never seen this before)

      Speed dropped to 30Mbit.

      Not impressed, to say the least.

      Well I've just popped onto the BT Modem and line stats are all OK i.e. line rate downstream 63000, up 20000

      /shrug

      Put it down to Sky being silly.

      Mine has changed to 151.xxxxxxx this morning also.

      I noticed a light in my bedroom and my internet radio had come on saying it could not find my router.

      Came down stairs, read this and see whatever happened to you has also happend to me.

      Not done a speed check yet but surfing web pages does seem slower, which is unusual at this time of the morning.

      Apparently no fault on my line, but speed now down to 10Mbit
      Best get the sky router out the attic and ring them up then,

      I think I had better dig out my sky router also and run some speed tests and see what the router says I am synced at.

      BT Modem here is synced at 64000

      Interesting that you are not on a Sky router too..... Think this might be to do with it.

      Also, 10Mbit. just, what?

      I really am having a bad week :-) internal wiring issue.

      Have now got back to 6.99mb/s downloads so I have lost 2-3 Mb but that will be through rebooting BT modem.

      All sorted now
