    I bought a Mag Box 250 around a month ago. It was working perfectly for a week or so, then my internet service started to play up. I was getting 50+mbs, then it dropped to between 10-15mbs. The Mag box speed test was showing up as 2-3mbs and hasn't improved but my speeds are back to 50+. Is it possible that my ISP is throttling the MAG Box?

    I tried this when the issue first came up. Didn't make much difference.

    Ok. Is it hardwired into the router or wireless ?

    Actually its wired to a WiFi extender. I have checked the speeds through it and they are 50+ also. I thought it may have been this, but it doesn'y look like it.

    It only plays SD channels. Any higher and it skips and freezes constantly

    Could be your ISP throttling then.
    Did you try resetting your wifi extenders

    I didn't, but I assumed that because i get decent speeds from it when I test it with the laptop, then it should be fine.

    Can I ask them if they are or not? Is there any way to find out for sure?

    That sourceforge test will show if they are throttling by the results you get.
    A high jitter result and any packet loss will prove it.

    Cheers man. I'll check that out tonight. I'll post the results as this is completely new to me. Do i do the test on the mag box or on any of my devices?

    Do you think it could be the mag box that has the issue?
