Re: ethernet drop outs consistent & frequently

The forum page is much better than calling or going into a text chat, whenever I use them all they can do is run a troubleshoot which always ends with "everything seems to be working fine" because the method they use is not able to see all the issues. I learned a fair bit coming into the forum group such as the BQM so I myself can troubleshoot things a little. the forum service can be a little slow having a day or 2 for the VM to get back to you but overall much better to help you get a better diagnosis of the issue, in my case I'm not sure what VM did to help solve the issue but it gives them a better idea what to look for because sending out an engineer doesn't always help.

Re: ethernet drop outs consistent & frequently

So after a day or 2 of having hardly any drop out It starting to become more frequent again. 

As I just had an engineer come out and tell me there nothing wrong with my equipment what the next step? VM could you please send out an area manager as it clearly not my in home connect that's an issue.

Re: ethernet drop outs consistent & frequently

Hello badrobot91

Sorry to hear the issues have started to appear again with your connection, from looking at the connection there does seem to be some problems with the power levels for your Hub's DownStream channels. This will require another technician visit but I will request a senior technician attends to look into this.

You can find the details of the visit here and there will be no charge for this visit unless:

  • The technician diagnoses the faults as not being caused by our network/equipment
  • The technician discovers that the fault or problem relates to your equipment
  • The technician discovers that the fault or problem relates to any system that we are not responsible for

The technician will confirm during their visit if any of these instances apply, and if so, a £25 charge will be applied to your account.

Please ensure there is someone over the age of 18 present at the time of the visit. If you need to change or cancel your appointment you can do this online or via the MyVM app by 4pm the day before the appointment.

If you do miss an agreed appointment for any reason, a £25 missed appointment charge will be applied to your account on the day of the appointment.

Rob

Re: ethernet drop outs consistent & frequently

Hi issue has been back for the last couple of weeks and has gradually been getting worse it is back to the point where i can't stay connected within a session. it kinda getting ridiculous now where we had several engineers and senior engineers come out and tell me different things, and that there is actually nothing wrong with my equipment.(the last people out even fitted a new cable that leads out of the house) I have done everything physically possible on my end spending hundreds of pounds trying to get just a more stable connection. feel free to read through the older pages of this form as its the same ongoing problem. please fix
