my last comment on your problem on this thread is that you said that your line was now in training after the engineer visit so you should leave it connected and let the automatic system find best possible stable connection for your line. This will mean resets maybe often during the 10 day training
if after that period you are abck to the original speed and noise margin then try mods again
OK thanks Mr Jolly you're feeling like a **bleep** of light in this evening's particular darkness. Are you saying that I could experience re-sets during training? If so that might explain all the resets (drop outs to me) I had after the previous engineer visit also.
PS - here are results after the second reset this evening, about 5:45pm. Downstream line speed dropping. Note I had to reset the hub myself to get back on the internet.
Just noticed. OWWWCCCH. Download 31Kbps?!!! Surely that can't be right?!!! Will re-test later this evening when my hour is up...
Download speedachieved during the test was - 31 Kbps For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 200-1000 Kbps. Additional Information: Your DSL Connection Rate :3328 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM) IP Profile for your line is - 750 Kbps This test was not conclusive and further testing is required.This might be useful for your ISP to investigate the fault.

Do you know what got *bleeped* out in that last post?
C as in charlie h as in hotel i as in india n as in november k as in kilo.
Ridiculous! Some over-zealous software there.
This is abso-*bleeping* ridiculous
My broadband is so slow I can't even get a speed tester to load now
Makes me nostalgic for the days of dial up
Mods have emailed me explaining that hub will reset and speed will drop during line training (= over the 10 days after yesterday's engineer visit).
Thanks for the explanation guys - I was panicking there (thinking that maybe the engineer had wired my line into the cabinet with a rusty nail).
All explained for the moment - thank you. Guess I will just have to wait the 10 days and see what happens.
PS - may be helpful if an enthusiatic person lists something on the forum to explain to ignoramuses like me what is likely to happen after an engineer visit and your line is going through training. Or maybe it's already on here and I just missed it. When you've been having broadband problems and you've had someone working on it for you, it comes as a bit of shock when speed drops almost to zero!
PPS - settings below show line is coming right. Thanks again guys. Apologies for doubting you (and all the evil things I thought and said about BT - you really are great guys)...

Thanks for your help and suggestions over all the issues I have been having
