Hi can someone please tell me why our connection keeps dropping out. We have super speed but every day we have to reset the modem because it just drops out the kids get mad because they're usually playing a game and suddenly lose connection. I'm a bit technophobic so please explain in simple terms if you you have any answers!! TIA
Hi Adam We notice it in the evenings mostly. My one son connects to xbox and other son to pc in their bedrooms upstairs both via tplink as they get no WiFi at all in their bedrooms. Ithe happens at least a couple of times a night. They have to go downstairs and reset the modem to re connect. The IT people at my work suggested tplink after I told them they get no WiFi in their bedrooms. I spoke to someone at virgin at least a year ago maybe 2 to say we had terrible connection probs in other areas of the house and I asked if I need some kind of extra box or something but they said no hence I spoke with IT at work. The kids get so annoyed with it. Please can you advise? TIA Jen.
I'd be interested in knowing what sort of time you're testing. We notice it's particularly bad every evening and weekends when we are all here. (It's half term at mo and my elder 2 who have the problem are away this week) maybe if you could try checking one evening ( after 8.30 on a mon, Tues or Thurs would be best from next week) then we'll all be using the equipment.
Thanks Nat but as I've said before this problem usually only happens when my 2 kids are on the pc/ xbox etc so in the evenings and weekends not whilst they're at school like you've been checking. It was terrible on Saturday afternoon. Took about 3 hours for my eldest to get WiFi. Ridiculous yet I pay loads for my package. For I have an old box or modem or something? Is it because I have an original box on the wall where the cable comes in to the house? I have queried it on the phone ages ago and got fobbed off. All I want is for my kids WiFi to work upstairs in their bedrooms. We have a normal sized 3 bed house no castle so surely it should not drop out all the time? I'm going to start making a log of all the times it does it from now as it's so frustrating and no one seems to be able to sort it. Jen.
There just send someone out to replace the hub every time only way to get good internet and wifi is to bite the bullet and get a 3rd party router and use that. I never look back at a not so superhub again
