Recent slow down in page loading times.


[link to this post]
 
I'm not sure what's happened, but recently there seems to be a huge lag in webpage loading times.
I'm talking regular delays of around 1 minute to load a page up, such as BBC News homepage. It can be any website.

I've tried multiple browsers.
I've tried using LAN cable direct to router.
I've tried multiple computers.

All get same delays. I can only assume the problem is the router or the line somehow. My router plugs directly into my old style (mid 80's) BT master socket.

I don't know if these numbers are of any use, but I got these from the router control panel:
Router Stats

Can anyone suggest something to try, as it is driving me mad!

I have just noticed that the Plusnet website says my DNS servers should be as follows:
Primary DNS Server 212.159.13.49
Secondary DNS Server 212.159.13.50
Optional tertiary DNS server 212.159.6.9

But my router has the following configured:
Primary DNS: 212.159.6.10
Secondary DNS: 212.159.6.9

I'll attempt to change those if I can to see if there is any difference.

It may be that with 5.5/2.5dB noise margins and the rather large number of uncorrected errors both up and down that your effective speeds are being hit by the large number of retransmissions

Could be you just need to reboot the router. First thing to try anyway.

Amusing "Maximum Bandwidth".

20 million FEC errors per day is a bit much. Are you tweakig the noise margin as well?

I hope the local error seconds is fictional.

Did the problem start at Christmas Lights time? Your own or a close neighbour?
