Orange broadband issues - getting slower - your help please


[link to this post]
 
Over the last week or so I haven't noticed that my Internet is getting slower so did speedtest using speedtest.net and only got 1.8mb. I ran same test over few days different times and same. Now back in December last year it was about 5.0mb.

Is there anything I can do to improve it again or is there fault with my line?

Is there anymore tests I can do or more information I can provide to help diagnose the problem?

I'm with orange with original livebox.

You need to find your router stats (attenuations, sync rates, margins). See http://kitz.co.uk/adsl/frogstats.php for help.

You may have suffered a "noise" event which may have temporarily affected your speeds or a filter may have failed. The stats will help in diagnosis.

Just had a look at my settings and these are them

Sync Speed - 8896
Attenuation - 29
SNR Margin - 8.6
Downstream - 8128
Upstream - 448
Dynamic DNS - off

Is there anything else I need to do? Hope this is enough for diagnose.

See if www.speedtester.bt.com will report your IP Profile.

But looking at the router figures, suggestion is that ISP congestion or exchange congestion are a factor rather than your telephone line/modem.

What exchange? Looks like a 20CN ADSL Max exchange which are often congested.

I got it to work, was just playing up. Here is my results from BT Speedchecker

Download speed achieved during the test was - 1.65 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 400 Kbps-2 Mbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :8.13 Mbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 2 Mbps

Worst case it should take 5 days for the IP Profile to recover to the 7150 value that matches your sync speed.

Keep an on the connection speed. and run this test once a day, for a few more days. If once 5 days have passed it is still slow and you've not seen the modem connect at a slow speed in that time, then pester support telling them your IP Profile appears to be stuck at 2 Meg

Ah cheers, I thought there must be something wrong.

So is my ip profile stuck at the moment?

Oh when you say support is that with BT as thats who I pay line rental to or do I have to contact Orange or someone else?

Also just looked at my up time and it seems my broadband has been only up for 1 day so it looks like its dropping out when it should'nt.

Also might try the test socket.
