So over the last two days, something has been wrong with my internet. Its normally in the 250mpbs range and now its down to 172kbps down and 342kbps up. The upload speed is slightly low, but very close to the normal rate. I called tech support to report the problem and the agent said that as long as I am getting an IP and getting out to the web, then the problem is on my end (regardless of speed). The problem IS NOT on my end. I have a Linksys WRT54G between my modem and my computer and even took it out of the network and nothing changed. I connected wirelessly and wired. No changes. I changed the encryption and even removed it. Still slow. No other MAC addresses have connected to my router. Sometimes I even have to refresh OT 2 or 3 times before I finally get through. I can't stay connected to a poker game because of the connection. I'm going to call tech support again on Monday afternoon and would like some suggestions to give them. So what are some reasons that my download speed would drop so drastically?
