Speed cut?

Did anyone experience DSL speed cut in NH recently? I have 768/128 plan and the speed was reduced to about 480/128 since this Monday. I used to have 3000/768 plan, so distance shouldn't be the problem.

Do you mean result of end-to-end speed tests have decreased or modem sync rate was reduced?

I have not noticed any change in either.

I used www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and www.speedtest.net to test the download speed. Both tests showed a download speed of ~480kbps. Last week I can get ~750kbps. I am using a 5 year old westell wirespeed modem and I don't know how to find sync speed.

I had this problem a couple of months ago. I shut off the modem for 30 seconds and turned it back on. No problems since

Westell 36R516 modem statistics.
I had an old Westell WireSpeed B90 36R516. Got a diagnostic utility here:

»www.westell.com/index.php?option···=support

Screen shot shows information I pulled using the utility.

P.S. If that isn't your modem model, check the site. They have a raft of manufacture discontinued links; you might find a utility on one of them.

Unless it changed since I used Westell utility to get access to low level stats need to know the magic key command:

CNTL-ALT-F7

Why they made it hard to get to stats I have no idea.
