Infinity slowdown necessitates HH3 reboot


[link to this post]
 
Every couple of weeks or so my Infinity download speed, normally 37.4 or thereabouts, drops to 3.5 (the speed I had with ADSL). I reboot the HH3 and everything is back to normal.
Anyone know why this happens?

Probably just the HH3 running out of RAM due to software bugs

So is a reboot recommended every so often then? Mine's been on since the engineer finished his last digestive and departed a month ago. Must say that wired is brilliant, wireless less than wonderful. Usually get 37Mbps+ over ethernet but rarely 10Mbps in the next room with wireless.

They are just a small computer, and a reboot every month would not cause any problems, and help to avoid slow downs due to clogged up NAT tables

Does this happen at any particular time, such as midnight or noon?

If it's regular, you could log a fault with BT.

Ah, thought this was the only person this was happening too - I also have this issue, approximately fortnightly, where speed drops from around 37meg to around 3meg, and only a HH3 reboot fixes it (which it does, immediately).

Yep, that's how it is for me. Does your upload go right down as well? Mine doesn't - well, only fractionally, dips below 8!

its not just the HH, I`m running a Buffulo router and its going to require a reboot right now frown Seems to be happening quite frequently these days? Not 100% convinced its just the router but a reboot clears but then you also get issued with another IP address as well?? Is that related?

Geoff

Have you got something working as 802g rather than 802n on the wireless. One device will make all drop back to 802g, then you will only get 10Mb real speed.

Try each device on it's own, starting with one you know is 802n, should show on the adapter on your Laptop which it is using.

Using 802n you should get more than 10Mb more like 30Mb+ (Unless your walls are really thick, not in a castle are you smile)

I'm running an Airport Extreme Base Station and do not have a problem with the connection slowing down. Maybe some process in the router is filling memory and causing the slowdown.
