Does a connection get bottlenecked?

Hi, 

I have noticed that periodically my internet speed will slow right down to almost nothing. I say periodically because most of the time it runs at the expected 38Mbs. This can happen two or three times per day. 

For example I did a speed test yesterday when I noticed that a web page would not open and BT Speed test reported 00.00 download, 0.41 upload and ping 0.00 (incredible! ) 

 

 

 

I am using a wired connection. My PC is wired directly to the router and the router directly to the master socket. 

This issue happens on both my PC and the wireless devices I have as well. 

I looked at the router stats page and I cant see anything strange.

Hi Again, 

It has just done it again and the download speed slowed to 2.05 Mbps. Yet 5 minutes ago it was and downloading at 38Mbps

 

Yet I look inside the router and it says it connected. The router is a TPLINK Archer . 

 

Does anyone have any ideas how I can solve this mega slowdown ?

Re: Does a connection get bottlenecked?

and now two hours later it is back to normal speed . 

I dont know if there is a line fault as I dont have a handset to test for quiet line test 

How frustrating Smiley

It is still having speed issues. I am 300m away from the FTTC cab . So I would expect speeds close to 38Mbps. . To be fair I do get these speeds but at least three or four a day it drops for a few hours.

I appreciate it is peak time but a drop of so much is not really acceptable
