Ok so it is Sunday and I dont want to call ISP for help, because it costs too much. So I am open to suggestions on what to do. 

 

Issue is this: I have normal (+90Mb/sec) download speed and ping, but something is blocking the upload speed to less than 1mb/sec, when it should be 50-60 Mb/sec. Wireless connection works as it should be, giving upload 50Mb/sec. Oh and my pc is attached to modem with cable, not wireless.

 

I have not tweaked any net settings in couple of months, so this is strange. 

 

Things I have tried:

 

restart modem + pc

tweak some settings from modem cp (tons of those, so I dont know what to look for)

disable modem firewall + av + firewall

run av with clean results

Drank beer last night and hoped it to fix by itself

sweared like a pirate

sweared more

 

My pc:

 

MB: Asus P5Q Pro

CPU: Intel core 2 duo E8400

GPU: Ati radeon HD 4800 series

MEM: 8Gb

OS: Vista 64

I don't know anything about the wiring in your country but I fixed a lot of issues by removing unnecessary wires that were terminated in the master socket. Here only 2 wires are required but there are 6-8 cores which were all wired and create a hell of a lot of unnecessary noise, stripping it down to the necessary wires solved a lot of up/down problems.

 

But if this has just happened randomly I can only think that your router may have developed a problem..

 

Do you have another router you can use or borrow a friend's for 5 mins to test it?

I already thought to get another router, sadly my mates dont have suitable, as this is vdsl line and ppl either have fiber or older adsl2 modems.

 

Also the cable is brand new from modem to pc, but I could test it by moving pc to where the other cable goes to iptv box.

Are you connected to the Ethernet input on the Mb or a Network card? If so, tr y getting a network card and using that, they're pretty inexpensive, or check for Network Adapter driver updates, or uninstall the drivers and reinstall them

sadly this sounds more like a cable  provider problem then a pc problem from what i myself have experience modems go out of date really fast  and if you had someone come out there and look at your  net as of late they could of messed with it like comcast did to me i was paying for  a  almost 1gb speed and was only getting  after of it 

 

but  what i would try and  go to the closes place you can get a new modem make sure you get a receipt and can return it  and try that out first  if that does not fix your problem then your going to have to call your IOS i would say get a new cable to but from what you said you try that then again upload speed is one thing i never really had even now i have almost 1gb of download speed and like 25 to 10 mb of upload speed

You mention that your wireless access point from your modem works fine? Unlikely to be a telco/ISP fault then. And somewhat unlikely (but not impossible) to be the router. If it was related to the router, perhaps a firmware update could be to blame. (I suppose it's possible a driver update got rolled out and borked something, but I seriously doubt that considering you're on Vista...)
 

First thing I'd try is a new ethernet cable. Wouldn't surprise me if it got crimped somewhere. Next, try a different LAN port if you haven't already... (ie, plugging it into Port #2 on the modem instead of #1)

Scratch the above regarding the cable... you mentioned that. Try moving the cable. And don't be afraid to call your ISP! Let them know your situation- how it works fine on Wireless and not on Wired. They can remotely re-flash and re-provision your modem. If that doesn't work, depending on when you got it, it may still be under warranty.

PS: I had one that wasn't under warranty and the tech swapped it out for a business grade one free of charge. Just went down to inventory, picked it up and was hush hush about it. They still think I'm using the old one to this day. (Note: I'm assuming you're using an all-in-one device. Modem+Router?)

Yes wireless work(ed) just fine. 

Well I think I found the issue and I strongly believe it is the modem. The net has been disconnecting just the last hour or so.

 

It is not rare that you need to contact ISP here and go get a new modem, since the stock shit they give you first, is usually pure shit. This is not the first time, tho I had my high hopes, since the interface and firmware updates were good.

 

And last firmware update was like 2 moths ago and it wont update without manual checking, so that cant be the reason.

 

I also tried the new cable and it is not the issue.

 

Will send email to ISP and see what they offer tomorrow.

It is MB connection. No updates available since years.

Yup, that's more than likely the modem then considering the other oddities. Every once in a blue moon they'll halfway function like yours rather than die outright. You may get lucky and it'll provision itself at a snail speed that'll get you by for a bit.
