My HG633 download speed is constantly dropping over the period of a few hours from rebooting. It has got to the point today where I've rebooted several times, which fixes the problem for a short while but very quickly the speed drops from around 20-25Mbps to currently 0.7Mbps on the WiFi and 1Mbps on the ethernet cable connection in just over an hour.
I've tried a factory reset on the router without any effect on the download speed drop off.
The upload remains fairly constant at around 4Mbps
My package is Fibre65.
It's not a gaming or streaming issues as the bulk of the internet usages is web browsing.
I've had the same router for a number of years and I'm not sure if it's now got a fault or if there is some other problem. Can anyone help?

New router arrived and installed, had 48hrs of stable internet and download speeds of 45Mbps+.
The problem appears to have been the performance of the old HG633 router.

I had some help from the live chat team yesterday and by a process of elimination I think we have narrowed down the problem to the HG633 router which may have developed a fault. A replacemment router for testing is the next logical step.

Ok, probably best to let the staff here take a look at this when they return tomorrow, they will be able to run some tests on your line and your router. If they did think the router may be at fault then they would be able to arrange a replacement for you.

I've tried the 30minute shutdown and download speed was ok for a short while but very quickly dropped to 0.5Mbps on my ethernet cable connection to the router and less on the wifi. Strangly the upload speed remains constant at around 4Mbps.

One other thing you could try would be to leave the router switched off for over 30 minutes, this will force a new session in the street cabinet when you switch it back on.
