Ok I'lll take a photo of the socket and post it this weekend.
However, I'm more concerned about why my previously fairly stable 4-5Mb connection has suddenly deteriorated? I thought it was perhaps just a blip when a couple of speedtest.net results showed 4Mb (actual downloads still slow though) but it just seems all over the place. Sometimes fine, other times a bit slow, and sometimes very slow. I should also add, I'm connected with a different router so that pretty much rules out it being the router as you previously stated (though I can't see how to get line stats from this router).
I've just ran two tests within the last hour, inbetween times the connection dropped:
5/13/2011 5:10 PM GMT 1.62 Mb/s 0.36 Mb/s 142 ms
5/13/2011 6:04 PM GMT 4.80 Mb/s 0.37 Mb/s 93 ms
I've just downloaded a test file from sourceforge, it downloaded at 5Mb+. I'm now downloading a test file from Zen, and it's a bit slower 3-4Mb. Still a lot faster than it was an hour ago?!?
