miserably slow linespeed

my 'up to 8mbps' line generally gives me around 5 to 6 mbps, but is currently crawling along at around 500kbps; too slow to run video without lots of buffering.
has some switch been inadvertently activated?

Re: miserably slow linespeed

I had this last night -  1.05mbs up and 0.32mbs down.
I have only been with Plusnet  7 Days after moving from SKY LLU!
Bit of a shock to the system as it has been years since I have had such abysmal slow speeds.
Speeds are OK tonight so far.

Re: miserably slow linespeed

it seems weird that my upload speed is twice that of my download speed.  i haven't had such abysmal speed since dial-up.

Re: miserably slow linespeed

Try disconnecting/reconnecting manually from your router admin page to see if that fixes it.
