I live in a "broadband down your phoneline" area and have problems with my virgin internet. It regularly keeps cutting out and losing service. Disconnecting then re-connecting fixes the problem for a few minutes then the problem appears again. The problem occurs more frequently when downloading something or streaming video (ie BBC iPlayer is very problematic). The service is basically unuseable for anything that requires a continuous connection.
I have accessed http://192.168.0.1/start.htm and set the connection channel for wireless to "3". I have also turned off UPnP, both doesn't really improve the service.
Apologies for the poor connection you've had to put up with so far.
I have had a look into your connection history for the connection down the line. It would appear that the connection to your router down the line is very stable as I'm seeing over 200+ hours of connection. This would suggest that the issue is the connection between the router to your devices(laptop, smartphone etc).
Are you only connecting wirelessly? If so its highly likely that it is the wireless connection that is causing the issue.
What router are you currently using?
Either way I would recommend our Remote Assistance where our agents can take over control of your computer remotely and resolve the issue.
If there is anything you are unsure of, or you have a general enquiry, please feel free to send me a private message and I will be glad to assist further.

In addition to my colleague Cen's advise, if you are using a black netgear DGN100 router (as a new customer I imagine that you would), the details for accessing the router diagnostics page are printed on a label on the base of the router. Once logged into the router click on the Wireless Settings tab and change the mode setting from 'Up to 154Mbps' to mixed mode g and b. This always goes a long way to making the wireless connection a lot more stable.
Hope this helps.
