      Sky Broadband Max Speed fluctuations

      Hi, I've been on Sky Broadband Max pretty much since the service was launched in 2008.

      Since that time I have been connected at a very stable around 11Meg & its always worked very reliably. Over the past 2-3 weeks the speed has been all over the place from the usual 11meg all the way down to around 2meg.

      When I reboot the router it will always re-connect back to 11meg but at times will drop to a much slower speed.


      Nothing in my setup has changed or been moved, No new phone's or sockets have been added & none of the existing phones or sockets have been touched in any way.

      I've got a Sky Netgear DG834GT router (White one) & these are my current stats:

      Code:
      WAN 	PPPoA 		2941649 	4	457300 		0 	50231 	51583 	
      LAN 	10M/100M 	31060707 	25256867 	0 	3277 	2678 	
      WLAN 	11M/54M/108M 	2590608 		1455653 		0 	15341 	2327 	
      
      ADSL Link 	Downstream 	Upstream
      Connection Speed 	3264 kbps 	542 kbps
      Line Attenuation 	29.5 db 		17.4 db
      Noise Margin 	25.6 db 		15.0 db

      Looks like a wiring issue. Try leaving the router in the test socket if you can and see if there are any further speed drops.

      It is possible the router is coming to the end of its life.

      Go here Mel's Notes: Sky Netgear DG834GT-1skuk click the Get Detailed Stats button and post the result here.
