We were changed to fibre35 at the beginning of April. We were also sent a talktalk hub router. We are 2km from the cabinet. Most days the download speed is about 18Mbps ( we were getting about 13 on adsl). But most evenings the speed drops to below 1 ie unusable. I didn't check the evening speed on adsl as it was never an issue. An open reach engineer has been out and updated the master socket and some connectors, no line fault shows up on testing. I have switched off the router on 4 occasions and 3 times the speed has improved but I am not sure that the router should need to be switched off every evening. No other equipment has changed. I logged onto the router tonight and the dashboard says the current download speed to the router is 25 but the measured download speed on the talktalk speed checker is 1. Does anyone know if the speed on the router dashboard is correct. If it is why should the router slow down every evening?

The speed has gone up to 20. I think the Internet has been slow in the mornings sometimes in the past but I thought it was lack of coffee on my part so I didn't check the speed. Later in the morning the speed has been normal without me doing anything.

Thanks for the update. If the speeds are now also slow of a morning too and you've already tested with 2 different routers at the test socket and connected wired then the next step will be to arrange an engineer visit to the property. Would you like us to arrange this for you and we can confirm some details?

The broadband was fine until 830pm when it was suddenly very slow. I'm not sure if you can see the speed test, it was 0.2 but the page had trouble connecting to the server. After switching the router off for 30mins the speed is 15.

No. I didn't try the pc. The wired and WiFi speeds have always been similar. If the speed drops this evening ( it drops most evenings but not every evening) I will get a wired speed

The new router arrived on monday. It has been fine during the day. Monday evening the speeds dropped to 5.8 at 9pm but this was good enough to stream bbc iplayer. However tuesday evening the speed dropped to 11 9pm then 2.6 at 10pm which was too slow for streaming. I have left the router on and this morning the speed is 24.

Ok thanks for confirming. I've re-checked the connection stats now and the sync speed looks like it has started to stabilise since I last checked this. Would you like us to send a different router for testing purposes first before we raise this over to our Network Team?

No I only have the one router. I returned the previous router to talktalk. The speed dropped to 0.9 just after 9pm last night but is up to 13 now. The router has been on all night. I haven't turned it off again.
The speed when I log onto the router via 192.168.l.l has been 26 consistently for at least the last 24 hours. But I am not sure if this is measured in real time or an estimate.

If the speed increases immediately after the router has been switched off/rebooted then this does suggest a possible router issue. Can I just confirm have you recently tested with a different router?

The download speed before I switched the router off was 23.3. After switching the router back on it is 25.4
I last switched the router off on sunday afternoon (after the speed had been 3 all day which is the only day it has been slow all day). Sunday evening the internet was usable - I didnt measure the speed but it would have been more than 5
