Re: getting kicked off online games

Have you checked the 'Check Service Status' at the top of the page ?

If nothing is showing try phoning 0800 561 0061, this will tell you of more local issues that may be affecting the area. Be aware that it isn't a manned line.

Go round all the accessible co-ax connections and ensure that they are finger tight.

If everything above is OK we need do some troubleshooting; to start with …

Can you set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) at thinkbroadband.com - this will give you an insight into what is happening with the signal at the other side of the Hub, it will take a few hours to get any kind of trend showing although you can post the link straight away.

Post a link to your BQM on here.

Instructions for posting BQM Link

Under your BQM graph are two links in red.

Click the lower link (Share Live Graph) then click generate.

Copy the text in the Direct Link box, beware, there may be more text than you can see.

On here click the Link icon (2 links chain to the left of the camera icon)

 In the URL box paste the link you copied and then click OK - you can post the link straight away.

Then

Can you please

Type 192.168.0.1 (192.168.100.1 in Modem mode) into your browser URL bar and press enter. 

When the page appears DO NOT LOG IN but click ‘Check Router Status’.

Copy and paste the contents of the Downstream, Upstream and Network Log tabs onto here, if you get a yellow warning click the Post button again.

A Guru will be along soon to decipher the info.

Re: getting kicked off online games

it seems to be bk working ok again it's obvious that it is just one of many issues with virgin lately, that don't last long enough to actually get enough proof to cancel contract, Highly unlikely I'll be renewing after nearly 2 years, when u r a heavy user and streaming games few days of issues becomes a massive issue and had some issues with the tv too so when u get annoyed with Internet u can't even watch TV in peace, disgusting for a premium full fibre service might as well bk bk on the terrible service from bt

Re: getting kicked off online games

To be honest, Virgin has never been the best ISP for gaming, DSL-based providers have always been far better. 

Virgin is for people who want fast download speeds, DSL-based providers are for people who require fast response/ping times. 

Some people have both for the best of both worlds. 

I don't know what kind of service you have but most of Virgin isn't full-fibre, it's ancient cable modem technology.
