Ah, seems it wasn't a banded profile as afer rebooting the modem I'm now at 36mb/s, it's not the 40 I had before but I'll take it. I should have tried this first before making the thread, sorry about that. Although I'll keep an eye on it as I'm still afraid it will drop again. Thanks for working throug this with me jolly.
