Long story on banding changes.
A few months ago I found I was apparently banded at 60,000Kbps, a speed that strangely I had never reached until that happened. I have two HG612s. The one in use at the time was the one that hit the 60,000 through several re-sync's over the weeks. The Max attainable always a few hundred Kbps below that.
In late October or early in November I put the other one on just to test it and my spare 582n router still worked, so I could lend them to someone. This sync'ed in the mid 5700s with Max attainable a bit higher.
I decided to experiment with the ZyXel modem router from AA, which they had configured in router mode to be fed by the HG 612, to get the IPv6 working. It hadn't done from Day 1 as far as I know.
Over the next two or three weeks I tried that in modem router mode, giving 59999Kbps sync and Max attainable around the very high 69,000+Kbps. The IPv6 was unstable so I then substituted an HG612 feeding my ASUS RT-N66U which I knew handled IPv6 from my time with Plusnet.
Over this period my banding dropped to 55,000Kbps
I then replaced the HG612 with a Draytek Vigor 130 modem hoping to help remove the banding. Feeding the ZyXel back in its original configuration. It provided IPv6 for a few hours then fell back to IPv4. Banding fell to 49,000Kbps.
I then obtained a Billion 8800NL R2 and installed it in modem router mode on Wednesday 17 Dec evening after four days of the Draytek. It sync'ed at the 48,999Kbps expected, with attainable at 67,000+Kbps. However I had to reboot it two or three times that evening to get IPv6 working properly.
10am Thursday 18 Dec DLM dropped the banding to 44,000Kbps
. I hoped that was because of my continued messing around, and resigned myself to several weeks at that speed.
4:42am on Saturday 17 Dec it jumped back up to 55,000Kbps! Been there ever since. I now have to wait and see if and when it puts it back up to 60,000Kbps or even removes it altogether. Max attainable in the 67,000s.
