I've had problems for some time with slow speed on my 100Mb broadband. Its now got to the point where its dropped to between 2 and 4 MB especially in the evenings which I presume looks like network congestion.
Latest speed test results (slightly better this morning!) are:
Download Speed: 3946 kbps (493.3 KB/sec transfer rate) Upload Speed: 2247 kbps (280.9 KB/sec transfer rate) Latency: 320 ms Jitter: 58 ms 2/5/2017, 11:22:30 AM
I've copied the logs from the router below, there does appear to be several errors in the network log, any help would be welcome....
Well your Downstream power levels are really quite low albeit still technically within specification and your Signal to Noise ratio is pretty marginal too so could be a noisy connection. On the Upstream side the power levels are also within spec but they are at the high end. I'd say your hub is struggling a bit with those levels and you are probably suffering evening time over-utilisation as well. An engineers visit should be able to sort your power levels out.
Ignore the DHCP 'errors' in the log, they are not relevant to the issue.
A further thought, you might find it interesting to set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) for your WAN IP and just leave it running. You will need to set your hub's menu to accept pings. The BQM will be a good indicator of just how noisy your connection is. http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/monitors.html
I have one permanently running as it takes a tiny amount of bandwidth and is a good indication of problems developing in your area such as a new neighbour's installation gone wrong and introducing latency into the local network.
Hey Dave thanks for all your help. I've just found out phone line is really noisy as well, while I realise that takes a separate route to the exchange it might be an indication of something amiss on our feed. Will try the monitor as well , thanks
