I had a 38717 sync for months then it suddenly dropped to 33000 (approx) and it has now dropped further. TBB Speedtests have shown a decrease from 36500, to 31500 to 28000 and BT tests give similar results. Previously the TBBmeter plots gave a nice clean regular plot, but now it is all over the place. So far, BT are not interested as I am still above the 15Mbps threshold.
I have measured the temperature of the heatsink in the modem - it is over 60oC with a heatsink that has a thermal resistance of about 30K/w and the IC packaging adding something similar, with maybe 0.5w (or more) power consumption the die is probably sitting at something over 100oC.
I wonder if this one is on the way out?
Edit to add:
The modem IS wall mounted
