my internet download speed has dropped significantly in the last few days from 650-700Kbps, which has been pretty constant since i got it 8 years ago, now its a little over 300kbps.
i'm pretty sure my ISP isn't throttling the connection. (i'm with Sky)
so i'm at a loss as to what it could be because i've checked pretty much everything.
what has been ruled out.
1 Computer to router - speed is the same through Wifi (laptop) and Network cable (desktop),
2, Router overheating, although i've had issues with this in the past, the router has been off on many occasions over night and then on, the speed is the same.
Router status shows:
Connection Speed 3067 kbps
797 kbpsLine Attenuation 33 db 18 db Line Attenuation 33 db
i've already reset the router (with the reset switch for 30 seconds) a few times, makes no difference.
3, checked the phone socket to see if that could be an issue, there was some corrosion on one of the pins inside which i cleaned, made no difference.
Setup is like this:
Computer -> network Cable -> Router -> DSL to Phone cable -> Phone extension -> Phone line/wall
