Your equipment has resynched at a stupidly low level so BT have kind changed your bRAS to 160Kbps.

If you're sync speeds remain the same for the next 2-3 days, your speeds will then return to what they used to be, however this is unfortunately a drawback of BT Max ADSL service.

If it helps at all, exactly the same thing happened to my connection and I fully understand how much of a pain it is.

Thank you for the prompt reply James Smiley

It's like going back to the dark ages, memories of ISDN many many years ago :shock:

I'll leave it a few days, whilst regularly reseting and checking my router.

Thanks again.
