I've recently had a line fault which completely disabled my land line phone (no dial tone) and would frequently disconnect my router multiple times a day, for about a week.
The line fault has recently been fixed and the phone now works, but unfortunately due to all the disconnections, my connection speed has slowly dropped from around 19mb to 0.283kbps.
I'm wondering what I should do now.
I've been reading a lot online, on various forums, that I should leave my connection stable for 3-5 days before attempting to restart my router to increase my profile. But I've also read that on a ADSL2+ connection, this is not necessary; I should be able to leave my connection off for a few hours (or overnight) to get a re-sync?
The sane part of my brain is saying, just leave the thing connected for 3-5 days; the other part of my brain that wants to play Planetside 2 is saying, restart the router now!
