Hello to all, I really hope someone can help me with this problem as this is my last attempt to get a resolution to this problem before I cancel my Tv, BB and phone package. I have been having really bad fluctuating speeds on my 200Mb BB connection from before Christmas. I contacted the help and support line they sent a new SH3 out this didn't fix it, so an engineer was sent out on Christmas eve to fix the connection. The engineer found no problems at my house but seen problems on the network side so he contacted the network engineer to have a look, he found no problems in the ten minutes? He spent looking at it, so he factory reset the router and it was stable for about twenty minutes. After the factory reset he left telling me that it was fixed. The connection was by no means stable with speeds ranging from 9Mb to 290Mb and very erratic 200Mb in between. This has been so so frustrating trying to get fixed everytime someone checks the connection it seems to be running at a very erratic 180Mb/210Mb and looks fine to them. I had to call again during the Christmas week still no resolution from the help and support, they booked an engineer to call 11/01/2017. He called today and replaced the router and added a signal booster to the wall connection, again the connection was stable for 20/30 minutes then started to fall by the wayside again. The problem is, it will start of being a stable 180Mb to 210Mb then become erratic then jump to anything from 240Mb to 290Mb or drop to 110MB to 9/20Mb then return to the unsteady 180Mb/210Mb very quickly. So when its running at the unsteady 180/210Mb it looks okay to a remote user who maybe running line tests. So after I checked the error log on the new router in two and a half hours it had clocked up 18 error messages ?
Here is the log after 2.5 hours
Date And Time Error Number Event Description
Lost MDD Timeout;CM-MAC=**:**:**:**:**:**;CMTS-MAC=**:**:**:**:**:**;CM-QOS=1.1;CM-VER=3.0;
replaced the Rj45 cable, released/renewed the ip, tried a network card, reinstalled the OS (windows 10). So as I say "last attempt" before cancellation team by weekend I think. Thanks for any help in advance
Thanks for getting in touch, hopefully we can puzzle out why the discrepancy in speeds, does this affect your service in any way?
I've run a number of diagnostics on both your Hub and local network segment and all report back with a clean bill of health.
To further the diagnostic process could you please try putting the hub in modem mode with a wired connection to the one PC (in safe mode with networking if possible) and check your connection via speedtest.net (default server).
Hi Ralph_R, it's all good now. I forgot to say that the last engineer said that he would have the connection monitored and any adjustments that needed made would be done. So true to his word the connection seems stable which is a great relief, thanks for the reply Ralph
