I think there is something wrong with all the Brightboxes. It does this on ADSL2+ as well. BBC News clips buffer then stop after a few seconds, youtube videos, large downloads just stop?My connection is buffering a bit this morning;
I think it could be due to congestion with a lot of people using the service at the Christmas holiday period. Previous I got the problem of buffering and YouTube not running when the Upstream speed was halved for my connection. I find usually if the Upstream speed stays over 1000 Kbps it will all run smoothly.
I think the BrightBox router is real good, set the MTU: 1500 Primary DNS: 126.96.36.199 Secondary DNS:188.8.131.52

Edited: I have even lost the connection a few times today, it must be congestion; too many people using the services.
