Hi richc72

 

This line test can be completed straight away once I know the router is at the test socket.

 

If you would like to go ahead and arrange the engineer visit then please can you reply to my Personal Message.

 

Thanks

Hi brianc36

 

Our Network Team have now advised that a BT Openreach line engineer is already investigating this fault and we should receive further updates within the next 24hrs.

 

Thanks

Hi Debbie,

 

Thanks for the updates. The Openreach engineers were here at 9am this morning!

 

They reset the DLM and the router sync speed is now back up to 38 Mbps. However, the download speed at the computers is only 19 Mbps (using ethernet) so they said that there is a further issue for you to investigate, possibly a problem with the router?

Hi richc72

 

Apologies, sometimes the line engineer will attend at the property once they have completed testing on the line.

 

Please can you power down the router for a full 30 minutes to see if the throughput speed increases following this?

 

Thanks

Done. The download speed is now 36 Mbps - so back up to what it should be again. I think that has solved it. Many thanks for your assistance. I shall know where to come should we have the same kind of problem in the future.
