Has anybody else seen a sudden drop in download speed. For months I have been measuring download speed around 32 mbs and upload around 6mbs. Today I had great trouble downloading a movie to our skybox. When it finally struggled to the end I made sure only my PC was talking to the internet and measured download speed from 8 to 12 mbs. It still shows the same ping of 9ms and upload still around 6mbs. The router has been connected for 34 days and it would have been over 80 days but we had one local power cut forcing a reconnection 34 days ago. Router shows download connectio speed is 36mbs
I may have answered my own question! I rebooted the router and it reconnected showing it connected at slightly slower download speed of 35.5 mbps but my measured download speed is back to 32 mbps and upload 6.5 mbps. I suppose it could be total coincidence and an external problem was fixed just as I did my reboot. OR it could be that such a slight reduction in connection speed is critical. Aint technology woderful!
Glad speeds have returned to normal levels.
