when you attach the modem direct to a pc or laptop does your internet connection remain stable?
also would be advisable to do a check on your cable modem
(Taken From Mark_Wilkin Post)
Inside the modem are various web pages that contain useful information about your connection. When reporting a connection fault it may be useful to include some of the information found within these pages. To view them open up your web browser and type http://192.168.100.1 into the address bar and press Enter.
The main information the Support team are interested in are the Downstream Power Level/Levels, Upstream Power Level and Downstream SNR (called RxMER on some modems). Depending on the model of modem you have this information will either be located in the ‘Signal’ page or the ‘Downstream’ and ‘Upstream’ pages.
Please note some modems will require you to log in before you can view these pages. The login details for both the username and password is root.

i notice that your downstream power is showing way too low is this should be less than around -4dbmv to about +6dbmv. this would need to be looked at by a service tech from virgin
2 ways to complete this:
1. wait for a forum admin to respond 1-3 days average wait, if you do want a forum admin to arrange 1 for you, can you include what timeslot/days would be more suitable for you.
(8-12pm 12-4pm 4-7pm) monday-fri
(8-12pm 12-4pm) Saturday
2. call up virgin media via 150 or 0845 454 1111 and advise them of the low downstream power on your modem config page.. they are open 24/7
if you do call up virgin media and a service tech is arranged for you, can you post here
hope this helps
