Hi guys, I posted some time ago about problems with my DSL connection. I'll quickly recap. I've always had trouble getting a decent connection speed, usually 1500kbps was about my maximum. I'd learnt to live with it. In January, my connection speed increased to 2200kbps which was absolutely brilliant. No idea why, it just did. Unfortunately 2-3 weeks after it did this, I experienced a period of instability and since then, I have never again seen speeds anywhere near this. My line would only connect at 1100-1300kbps. It was, however, very stable. I am unable to stream things from youtube very well, and watching BBC Iplayer etc is something that its rarely worth bothering with. Today, I have noticed that I am now connected at just 704kbps. I've rebooted the router 4 times now and each time it syncs at a speed of about 704kbps. This is now ridiculously slow, slower than I've had for as long as I can remember. I really don't know what to do about it, really. I have a very long line despite living only 5 miles from the centre of a city with a population of 270,000 so it's not as if I'm sat in a rural farmhouse miles from anywhere wondering why my internet sucks. My line is long because BT routed it to an exchange that is, quite literally, on the other side of the city. Anyway, line stats at the moment.. DSL Flavour = ADSL over POTS Reserved Bandwidth (kbit/s) up/down = 448 / 704 Properties Output Power (dBm) up/down = 12.5 / 14.0 Attenuation (dB) up/down = 31.5 / 63.0 Noise Margin (dB) up/down = 11.0 / 15.5 I've tried new equipment - a DG834G V4 with the DGTeam firmware - to no avail. Any ideas? I already have all the extension wiring in the house disconnected, the master faceplate removed, and the router plugged directly into the socket and have had for years. I'm with Plusnet, who probably couldn't care less so I doubt they'll help me.
