Sorry if this issue has been raised in a prior thread.
I have been with virgin media for two years now. In recent months the internet has been getting a bit troublesome. It runs really slowly at random times and in rare instances does not work at all.
It is running really slowly at the moment. I can currently see the light with the arrows at the top flashing blue, the middle light with the tick solid green and the bottom light (with the signal on it) flashing green intermittently.
What do you think may be the cause? May be worth noting that there is another virgin media connection very close by (4-5 bars), could that be interfering with things? I've done the old classic turning it off and on again in these situations but to no avail.
The stats are fine, but you will still need to test the connection with a device connected directly to the hub by ethernet cable to completely rule out the internet connection as the culprit.
I take it the hub is in an open position away from obstacles and electrical devices.
Downloading a wireless scanner like InSSIDer for Windows or WiFi Analyser for Android to see what channels the oyjer network is broadcasting on, so you can change channel accordingly, remembering that wireless channels overlap on the 2.4Ghz band, so you want to be at least 4 channels away from any other network. Bear in mind, the scanner will not pick up interference from domestic appliances like A\V streaming devices, Baby monitors, Chordless phones, Microwave ovens, Plasma TVs, Security systems etc.
I would check that the up is set to 144Mbps on the 2.4Ghz band.
It may be worth changing the hub to the 5Ghz band if your client devices support it.
The SH1 has a poor wireless reputation, purchasing your own wireless router and putting the hub in modem mode may help, whether it will completely solve the problem will depend on how badly your wireless connection is congested. Or, it might be worth giving Retentions a ring (Thinking of leaving us option), have a friendly chat saying how bad your WiFi is, and see if you can blag a SH2, SH2ac or a Hub 3 (if you do not need any basic advanced features as the firmware is still a bit flaky) for a minimal fee, bearing in mibd they might try and tie you into a new contract.
Thanks for posting and a warm welcome to the community.
I'm sorry to read that you are having issues with your broadband connection.
I've taken a look at your connection, the line and hub is running fine with no issues. The network segment is stable and healthy.
I can see that you have been given some great advice from griffin, did this help at all? If you can try a speed test through a wired connection to see what speeds you achieve, that will be helpful. When the broadband stops working, do any lights on the router change at all?
