Every hour for the last few days i am losing connection for a few minutes as the lease on the ip is at 1 hour !.
This has nothing to do with the PC and windows 10 as stated on the fault page for my area (WN4 Wigan )
Seems there`s a few with the same issue.This is on top of the problem rubbish speeds at peak times.
Join the long line of people who are also having this issue. I am, and I am also from the Wigan area.
If you log into your router, you will find that your WAN IP Lease Time is only set to 1 hour. So every hour, it looks for a new Public IP for you.
This is an issue on VM's side, but good luck trying to get them to notice this.
Same here WN7 area and still being ignored by Virgin !
I've been having this for about 10 days always after an hour in the Wigan WN4 area. I will look at my lease time and see if it coincides with a drop out.
Well it went ok ,back to a seven day lease time the same day i originally posted.
However i`m now back on a 1 hour lease and the persistent disconnects that comes with this!.
Does anyone from Virgin media actually frequent these forums now ,as it seems i no longer get any replies to any problems from them. ?
Thanks for the post! I am sorry to hear about your issues with persistent 1 hour disconnects, I apologise for any inconvenience caused.
I have tested the connection from here for you and I can see that all of your downstream power levels are too high and an engineer will need to attend in order to resolve this for you.
I will send you a PM (Purple envelope at the top) detailing what's required to proceed with making the booking. Please respond to me there and I'll get this all sorted for you.
