Massive DSL speed fluctuations! What is going on?
For the past 2 days my TSI 16mbps ADSL connection has been experiencing drastic speed fluctuations. One minute everything is fine and next its crawling. I did a speedtest when it was working normally in my op. I always get between ping:18-35ms, DL;15.67, up: 0.76. When its really slow I get a ping:700-800ms, dl:1.20-2.50mbps, up:0.20-0.30...wow. I called TSI spoke with a tech agent to check and see if my area is experiencing problems..no. The tech I spoke with claimed he was getting a good connection with my modem. Just to confim when doing my speed test I also unplugged every phone in the house to rule out filter issues...nothing.
The hardware I'm using is a D-link ADSL2+ modem I purchased 2 weeks ago + TP-link Wireless router bought 3 months ago. I also kept my speedtouch 516+ old D-link 601 router with are still working. I have tried different combo of new and old hardware and the problem still persists and nothing has changed in the telephone lines around my home. I don't see how this is a problem on my end. Any ideas on where I should check next?
