I just had a slight interruption of broadband service and as soon as it came back (a few seconds at most) I did a speed test and on the single layer download or whatever its called I saw speeds up 1,000 meg !
"If your burst speed figures are very high, particularly at the start of the test this is usually an indication that your anti-virus software may be delaying traffic initially, and then clearing its buffers once it decides that the speed test is safe."
I think Kippies room for error can play a part as well.
I don't think it would be DOCSIS 3.1 as none of VM's hubs are 3.1 compliant.
i am now getting these every afternoon / evening now, and they Always happen just after a short line drop, of which I am still getting around 8 or so a day, Every day. The upstream power also still reaches just over 50 when this occurs as well.
So, I am on a new router, a new connection and this is still occurring, ???
Sorry to hear that things haven't been ok for you Kippies and i hope that things begin to ease/improve for you soon mate, know all to well what that's like myself of late, never enough hours in the day it seems either
These line drops are usually short in time, a few seconds as a rule. In fact I often only notice them when the net radio stops. I then do a speed test and see spikes of around 300 - 400 meg, then it will settle if i do another afterwards. the upstream power levels also jump, not often above 50, but occasionally. Also I have noticed that these short line drops are not recorded in the network log on the router, but i have grabbed screenshots of the results.
To recap, I am now using a hub 3 and also now have a new IP as well. The tech also changed the filter attached to the back of the hub from a 10db to a 6db.
That's about all I can think of right now, but if there is any more info you feel might help, more than happy yo supply.
