I'm on the Sky Broadband Max LLU package. I've got a Netgear 934 (the black one with dimples all over). Up til two weeks ago I was getting great download speeds, on every online speed checker I was getting 16 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up, pretty good for these sync rates...
ADSL Firmware Version 7.03.01.66
Modem Status Connected
DownStream Connection Speed 17913 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 1181 kbps
I switched my router off for a week while on holiday, now that I'm back I'm getting http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/button/13151...
0.6 Mbps down and 1Mbps up!!
I've done the usual checks, the speed is the same wired or wireless, different laptops and a mobile phone all get the same results, antivirus and spyware checks complete, Xbox Live is slow downloading as well etc etc. Sky have checked from their end and they can't see any problems so it's been passed to the next tier for investigation.
Here's the strange bit:
If I download from Usenet (using Giganews) I get the same full download speed as I always get, 18Mbps+. The slow download speeds which are lower than my upload only seem to occur when browsing and downloading from the web, on xbox live, and on torrent downloads.
Can anyone help? Thanks...
