Magikmoose: I have had this issue twice this week - had not happened before this. Last time it happened was the 12th - pulling the dsl line did not restore speed but rebooting router resolved. Kills download speed but router sync speed remains constant.
Using a WAG54GP2V2. I will monitor and log fault with HD if this happens again.
Cheers.


That means it is your modem, not your ISP.  Pulling out the line will force renegociation of the connection.  Rebooting the modem will clear any junk/corruption in the modem.

We are still working on this and the root cause for the problems being seen,  if you have the issue could you please post your speeds,  modem being used, if you have VFX or not, and what type of VFX device you do have

Would you like me to not restart my router?

I currently don't need fs upload, and will soon be going out until late this evening. So I'll leave my router for now, so you can take a look at the logs if you like Laughing

I will pm you my login details.

VFX: No

EDIT: After rebooting modem:

Just had the issue again today, 2nd time in 2 days.

this time my download was limited to around 256kbit, and the upload to 128k. I have restarted my router, and download speeds are ~6mbit, upload ~700k

you have my account details in a PM maverick, incase you want to take a look at the logs of what ever.

cheers

I have just had the 256k treatment again. I was told by (Simon) at the XNET helpdesk recently to use the xnet speedtest  as it was more accurate. I note that both have downloads of around 7megs and (xnet) has upload of 400k with speedtest normally about 750k. i think it is time to admit the problem is caused by  fiddling bandwith management to give QOS for VFX service.
I think it is time for some facts.

I just experienced this problem for the first time. Speed was DREADFULLY SLOW, even worse than dial-up.

Restarted router and all OK. I don't have any VFX service on this line, so that is definitely NOT the problem in my case.

Are all your lines on the same VFX account? i seem to remember earlier you had 3 VFX lines. Maybe it is a total usage problem.
I would like Phil to reply with what they have found out todate.

Nope, 2 different accounts and the third one is wireless which has hardly been used this month.

I use Skype in voice mode occasionally, but not for the past quite a few days.

GEOMAX: Do you get different results between xnet and speedtest tests?

Nope.  Exactly the same within the usual margin of variation that you typically get with this sort of test.

P.S.  The affected connection is on the Xnet RIVER plan i.e. FS/128k.  The other connection which uses Xnet FLOOD is unaffected.
