about a month ago i was out of contract with orange and as my speeds had dropped to below 1mb, i wasted no time in requesting a MAC. Orange have always said that they did not limit my speeds yet when i joined them from BT, i was getting a rock steady 3.8mb. Over time my speed dropped as above. Anyway, oddly, as soon as my MAC had been emailed, my speed jumped almost overnight to 3.4mb and continued to climb back to 3.8mb, as tested on the BTW speedtester.
Anyway, i decided to join BT again, and i switched over about a week ago, all the while testing my speeds 3 times a day as i have for months, and they held steady at around 3.7mb, until tonight when i decided to plug my new BT Hub 3 in...... Speeds have dropped to 1.75mb. Anyways, i realize that it will take a few days to settle but already it says my IP profile is set at 2mb, which is a pile of [censored].
Just wondered if by switching back to my original Netgear router would make any difference, and even if not, wondered if anyone knows what settings i need to use?
