chrispchikin:TimA:chrispchikin:TimA:sbiddle: I do hope you update this thread with whether it fixes it or not. I'm still very much of the opinion the issue is likely to be upstream congestion and the configuration of your network, so changing ISPs won't fix the problem if it is the issue.
Steve, he himself 100% proved it was not the bigpipe network at fault.
And I really don't want to play this card

If your employer saw this thread they would think twice about your position mate - At least if i was your employer i would.
No, I haven't proved it wasn't Bigpipe, what I have proved is that running iperf on a DSL connection kills it, but that will happen on DSL connection.
I would happily show this thread and the statement above to my employer, but if I were you I would leave personal comments such as yours out of this discussion.
And I gave you a free router, so be nice :)
Haha for the banter matey all for the banter.
I ran iperf from my VDSL to a local server just then and i can still browse sweet and stream even tho the connection is flat lining.
So that would suggest an xDSL connection should be able to cope, yet mine doesn't.
I'd be curious to see your sync speed and iperf speed (with UDP).
Would you mind running iperf and a continuous ping to your ISP's DNS server and seeing if iperf kills that?
Its a dog aye, slow as.
