First off, I'll give you a little information. I'm with Orange and have been for the past couple of years. While the speeds that we've been getting weren't always brilliant for our package (8Mb/s), we would live with it (think 2Mb/s). Recently, however, we've been getting very unstable connection speeds and it is sometimes going as low as 0.2Mb/s. First off, I have a collection of speed tests going back a few months (http://www.speedtest.net/results.php?sh=dc2445baf588...). As you can see, the connection has been getting slowly worse until it is now pretty much unusable if more than one person is using it for gaming, downloading anything or watching a video.
I'll share my router stats and hopefully you can find the problem. I tried to make sense of them but I'm no expert and don't really know what I'm looking for.
Status: No Defect
There are no units on the stats page, and that's all of the information that's there. I seem to remember from recent checking that I'm about 1.5 kilometres away from the exchange, so I think that's relatively close in broadband terms. In the security log page, there are loads of rows of these:
May 18 16:11:43 - alert - klogd: Intrusion -> IN=ppp_0_38_1 OUT= MAC= SRC=126.96.36.199 DST=188.8.131.52 LEN=56 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=111 ID=9011 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=60429 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0
Dating back to yesterday (I restarted the router as it was pretty much stalled and it seemed to go a little quicker). Any ideas on what these are?
The router I'm running is a Belkin "Pre-N" from about 3 years ago. I don't think they're manufactured any more. Thanks for your help!
