For a couple of weeks now I've been experiencing a very odd issue that I've never come across before and I've exhausted all possible solutions I'm aware of. Let me detail my problem further.
Downstream HTTP traffic is horrendous, I'm experiencing literally 3-5 KB/s on any HTTP download and obviously YouTube experiences the same speed when trying to watch a video, however, any upstream HTTP goes at full line speed. What's even more odd is that every other protocol (nntp, bittorrent, etc) runs relatively at a much higher speed like 50-140 KB/s where http is 3-5 KB/s. The other protocol speeds are still not ideal but much better. It's just downstream, http upstream is full line speed. Pings are perfect too all the time, no issues there. Gaming is great. My line is syncing perfectly, SNR values are perfect, everything with the physical line is absolutely stellar. I've replaced the router, all ethernet cables (although wireless produces the same issue), filters, everything, to no resolution. I experience this on all devices, mobile, ipad, numerous PCs, etc. At first I thought it might be my exchange that is congested, but I don't believe that is true otherwise speeds should across the board be bad and high ping be an even higher indicator, but that is clearly not the case. I'm on ADSL G.DMT.
Here are my stats, as you can see, they are pretty much perfect:
Mode: G.DMT Type: Fast Line Coding: Trellis On Status: No Defect Link Power State: L0 Downstream Upstream SNR Margin (dB): 24.0 14.0 Attenuation (dB): 18.0 9.5 Output Power (dBm): 6.9 8.5 Attainable Rate (Kbps): 9696 988 Rate (Kbps): 4096 512 K (number of bytes in DMT frame): 129 17 R (number of check bytes in RS code word): 0 0 S (RS code word size in DMT frame): 1 1 D (interleaver depth): 1 1 Delay (msec): 0 0
It's not an ISP issue either, I've tested multiple different ISPs, same problem.
I've tried everything, including changing the MTU value, etc.
Any form of help would be greatly appreciated. I am at a loss here.
