I have been having prblems for the last 3 or 4 days now with my download speed just being so slow its becoming unusable... I work from home so need a solid internet connection to work form. I have spoken to BT that gave me the biggest load or rubbish i think i have ever heard and put the blame on my router.
So - I got rid of the HomeHub2 it was causing so much trouble with my VPN's into Work and not opening ports correctly. and i had it replaced with a NetGear DGND3300 - This has been working fine for 6 months or so without so much as a network drop or glitch and has all the right port access for me for work.
My netgear router is displaying back the following stats.
|System Up Time 12:31:59|
Now I would normally donwload at between 300-400 Kb's but for the last few days I am getting a maximum of 20-25 Kb's which is frustrating to say the least.
I have done all the normal things, I rebooted my netgear router, I put my BtHomeHub2 back in, I replaced the filter, I have turned off every device in the house and used an ethernet cable direct to the router from my laptop and still got exactly the same speeds. So has anyone got any ideas? as BT support are just telling me its my Netgear router that is at fault. Even though I am still running off the BtHomeHub2 with the same problems.

Please could you use the home hub 2, as its not possible to extract all of the information from the Netgear router.
When you have done that, please follow the instructions at the end, and post the results here, so members can offer advice. Thank you.
