Suddenly started to suffer slow connection speeds (drop from routine 6-7mb to frequently under 1mb) and gone through all the noddy checks with Eclipse tech support. Where I'm at now is looking at an UP-STREAM issue on account of speedtester.bt.com report e.g:
Download speedachieved during the test was - 1214 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Your DSL Connection Rate :8128 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 64 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 7150 Kbps
Very asymetrical. Now, I ask about modem behaviour because it seems to "ratchet down" to 64Kbps over a period of time. Often, simply re-booting it restores the upstream to 448Kbps and lo and behold the download speed goes back up to >6mbs. The downstream connection speed remains pegged at 8128 throughout.
Am I right in suspecting that a transient problem somewhere with my connection (on the upstream link) forces the modem (Netgear DGN2000) to knock back the connection speed where it stays put until the next reboot?
