During the 1st 10days of MaxDSL the system is testing your connection to find the best possible speed so that can cause numerous disconnections. Also a BT system known as BRAS rate limits your speed, for some reason there seems to be a fault on the BRAS which is not lifiting your speed up to the speed at which you connect at and its staying on 2mb.

Also note that with a USB modem you will never receive 8mb due to the nature of USB modems and the speed of USB, I would recommend upgrading to an eternet baed modem for MaxDSL.
