I've been with Eircom for 3-4 years and had no problems until a few weeks ago when the internet stopped working. Eircom diagnoised it as a problem with the router (a silver coloured one with two aerials). They sent me out a new one (Black one with one aerial & ~€50 cost added to the bill as the old one was out of warranty). Since then the broadband speed drops off significantly during the day. I phoned eircom support and was told I need to regularly switch off and on the router to maintain speeds. When I do that it is 5-7Mbs. As the day goes on (i.e. within an hour or so) it drops to 1-2mbs. If I go into the next day I'm getting 0.1-0.2mbs.
Eircom support are no use. I can't keep switching on and off the router everytime I need to use the internet. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm thinking of just giving up and switching to another supplier.
Thanks in advance
