DSL Speed Problems---Network Problem
Posted on 2009-04-19
Long story...a year plus! Slow DSL speeds, complained to ATT....year ago 3 techies here one day after another...got a little better. Last Aug. changed to top spped offered "Extreme 6.0" hoping I might finally get 1.5!! Often speeds were less than 1...often like 300k! Finally tech out determined to get to bottom...he discovered miswiring in CO. Had it fixed (took 3 days lol). Finally getting speeds up to and over 6.0 (the guy also gave me a biz class modem/router. Now the problem...after being on a relatively short period of time my speeds drop dramatically....until I reboot and they go back up. I'm a computer guy, fix, sell parts, do builds, etc. Could eventually troubleshoot this out but would rather get some tips from those who know more than I about this end of stuff. On this machine I'm using an Asus P5K Wi-fi board..whch has never given me problems...and same situation with other machines in house. Would think it is a network problem.
