I've noticed an odd occurance regarding upload speed.
Before the 13th of Jan I was getting a healthy 18-18.5Mbit upload on TBB speedtest or speedtest.net
I noticed a connection drop @ 1.30am on the 13th and since then...upload has barely got past 17Mbit as can be seen in the below pic.
Ok, I know that 1-1.5Mbit when you still get 17 isn't a huge amound but I thought it odd. So on saturday I decided to unlock the HG612 to have a look at my linestats (latest pastebin'd below) which also had the great side effect of being able to turn the LEDs on the modem off Thanks Huawei! Anyways, looking at the linestats confused me even more on the issue. Looking at it my connection should be going like the clappers but there's that odd drop of 1-1.5Mbit upload actual throughput where sync has stayed maxed.
So on a whim (and based on a suggestion by RobertoS) I turned off QoS on the modem. Suddenly the upload is back to where it was before and more.
Which again strikes me as odd. I'd have thought QoS would have always been active on the modem since install and that option wouldn't change, I can't imagine QoS suddenly taking effect after a week of service? I can't however find any other explanation for the spiriting away of 1-1.5Mbit upload throughput. Trying to figure it out I've tried a second PC running Intel rather than Realtek NIC, I've tried a Billion 7800N to rule out my new Asus router (as well as turning NAT acceleration off on the Asus), I've connected my PC directly to the 7800N to rule out my Netgear GS108 switch that I always use...and it all had the same results.
So other than QoS I cannot seem to figure out where the loss of upload came from other than QoS but that doesnt make sense to affect it after a full week.
One thing I have noticed on the stats is the high RS value on the upload with 0 on the download. Would that contribute to a reduction of upload throughput? RSCorr on the upload is currently 97 after about 23 hours which doesnt seem excessive itself.
OHF: 48326041 3224744
OHFErr: 24 23
RS: 0 3443396
RSCorr: 0 97
RSUnCorr: 0 0
Currently Plusnet "80/20" FTTC...Not overly impressed at the moment :|
