Keep having to reboot router to get my speed back.


[link to this post]
 
I have an issue. I keep losing speed on my D-Link DIR-655. I do a speedtest and it will report 54/1.6 or 55/5 or something like that every other day (it varies I think).

I have to reboot my router to get full speed back (currently 65/18 synced at 71.4/20).

Anyone know why and how I can fix it?

With Fibre speed is determined by modem not router.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC

Is that over a wired or wireless connection?

It might be worth trying a PPPoE connection if you're already connected over a wired connection.

The router is connecting to the VDSL modem (HG612) as PPoE.

Yes, but using a direct connection from the PC to the modem eliminates the router and will confirm whether it is the router that is the problem or something else!
