Internet seems extremely slow atm... nearly 100ms ping to Auckland speedtest servers and total bandwidth seems to be about 250 KB/s or perhaps less.

Am getting occasional 400 Bad Requests with pinkish backgrounds in the modem back-end but sync stats appear normal

Could it be my modem going bad? It's a Netcomm NB6Plus4Wn and it also likes to crash/restart when I overload it with torrent connections or loading many various tabs

Fairly sure it's the modem/router, it's annoying with it choking on torrents and barely being able to support a bunch of devices over wireless so will likely pick up a new one this weekend

It looks like this will be your modem. Your line looks really good, low attenuation, high sync rates. Your address is actually positive for VDSL if you wanted to look into that!
