Fibre connection



Please can a PlusNet support person check my line to see if I have been having any drop outs or line errors.  Over the past couple of months our speeds seem to be getting slower.  I have attached the line stats from my router and the latest BT wholesale speed check.

My router is always connected to the master socket and my desktop is hard wired direct to the router.

Re: Fibre connection

Thanks for your post @Bustermagic1.


It looks like the connection profile had dropped to 33mbps rather than 40mbps. I've had this amended for you now and if you reboot the router in around 4 hours you should notice the speed pick back up.


Please let us know how you get on.

Re: Fibre connection

Hi @OskarPapa The speed did increase after the reboot but seem to have gone back to where it was. Is it possible to see if there are any errors showing on the line. Thanks, Dave
