Thanks, I have had the line checked and there is no noise on it, there is nothing else connected except the router, to the only socket in the house,so a bit of a mystery,Thanks anyway
Maybe no audible noise, but every line has noise on it and there will no no exceptions. The noise will go from 25kHz all the way through to 17Mhz and all of that will be outside anyone's hearing. Noise levels can be very small, however as the signal size can also be small, it does not take much to have an adverse effect on a line. There could be another customer added recently, or an existing customer has changed their modem, or a modem has been adversely affected by the recent storms ... all of which can have an significant effect.
A single noisy modem can easily cause a drop of 5 to 10 Mbps and there is very little you can do about it.
