Right here is the story. My broadband speeds have always been ok. (roughly 5-6 Mbps down) I get an email saying there will be work done on my exchange and it might make it faster. The work goes on my router loses connection for about 30 mins then comes back on. Wow! 15Mbps down more than double speeds! Works fine all that night.
Next day I can't connect, look at the router and it is in the process of booting up. Check logs it went down again for about 10 mins (I'm using the Netgear N600) Weird, just think it's teething problems but this happens randomly all day and the next and the next. I'm getting annoyed so I switch back to the Homehub3 and this starts dropping connection too. So I change every filter in the house which seems to sort it out. However speeds are now real slow! So I test it using the BT tester, on the master socket with a wired connection (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2206810/bt_speed.png) Poor speeds and speedtest.net is saying the same. This looks like its now a banded profile.
So I left the Homehub in trying to keep a stable conntection for 3 days but it won't the little timer seems to randomly reset even thought the logs say it was last powered up on the 13th. The connection hasn't improved so I turn here for help.
it does show disconnects
you need to connect to the test socket to remove any possible internal wiring errors also if an Openreach enginner is needed and the fault is found on your extensions the visit will be chagable
Ok well in that case my router must have been up more than three days. Even though that little timer has reset...
Here are my logs. The entries before are from April last year. That is when I swapped it over for the Netgear. You can see no disconnect entries at all. The dropdown box is set to all.
Do I need to re-start the router to get rid of the
speed cap banded profile? Also should I turn off the auto-channel selection? It seems to have selected the exact same channel as my neighbour anyway.
