Slow Down

I have had ADSL for around 4 months. Initial speeds on the PlusNet test were consistently around 490. I haven't tested for a couple of months but now only get around 430. Nothing about my hardware or configuration has changed.

Any ideas?

Slow Down

Maybe your exchange has more users sharing your 50:1 contention (or 20:1) connection.

Check out your exchange status here. If it is amber or red, that could explain your slowdowns.

You could try experimenting with your MTU and RWIN values (both in windows and in your router is it is separate) - see the MTU tweak thread in ADSL and broadband forum for details.
