Orange/EE Speed dropped to 10%


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,
During mid September my 2.1ish Mbps (Download) internet dropped to 0.25Mbps. I was hoping this was just a quick blip but its stayed like this since. The upload is about 0.8Mbps.

BT Speed test

I've tried al lthe usual things like turning Antivirus off/Wi-fi off, checking its in the master socket, phone filters, testing at different times of the day, putting the line directly into the master socket, changing the router back to my N speed Netgear but to no avail.

I phoned Orange technical support and I did a reset on the router and changed my channel on the settings page and was told to wait a day for the changes to happen but its still the same.

Any ideas? as I don't enjoy the very slow one way conversation I have with tech support.

Thanks for any help

Will

What are the router stats, i.e. actual connection speed, attenuation and noise margin figures

Finding out your router stats might have saved you all that messing about/changes.

If the router stats are correspondingly low, then your PC and wireless do not come into it.

BTW: That's not the BT Speed test; try here instead BT Speed Tester

There's your problem. You should be getting about 2 Meg.

Most likely home wiring issue. Are you plugged into master socket? How many extensions? All phones filtered? Removed ring wire?

Can you repeat these stats with router plugged into hidden test socket behind master socket faceplate (no phone)?

Yeah Pre-sept it was 2Meg so I don't understand why it suddenly dropped.

It's plugged into master (after going through two rooms) with two phone filters on the phones. I've tried it staright in.

I will have to try the hidden test socket tomorrow smile

Prob too long ADSL cable. Can you plug in nearer master and get stats from test socket?

Sorry maybe I should explain that we are in a region which can only get 2 Meg. Its been like that for the last 2 years 2011+ 2012 ( and then 1 Meg for the previous 5 2006-2010). Its because we are 5k away from nearest exchange.

So actualy 2 Meg is really good for us so this sudden drop is very annoying!
