yeah it happens when I'm running a number of torrents. the speed keeps see-sawing up and down.
it never did that before. and I don't have a homephone so it's not related to that.
do you think that it's a sign that the modem is giving up the ghost?
edit: I was just told that this behavior is a result of having too many torrents running and that can be seen in 2wire's MDC

I'll just reduce the number of connections and see how it goes.
