Brand new internet - not acceptable - need an engineer ASAP. Intermittent WiFi.

Had our new virgin media hub installed on Tuesday the 25th. We have had intermittent internet ever since. It’s been a very inefficient service, we have attempted to call, use online chats and go through forums for solutions. We have tried downloading the connect app and resulted to resting the box which did not solve the issue. We have looked outside the property for the box and found the atrocious manner in which the cables have been left, leaving us very disappointed in the service and not surprised at the fact the WiFi is not working.

Re: Brand new internet - not acceptable - need an engineer ASAP. Intermittent WiFi.

How are you connecting your device, Wi-Fi or ethernet cable ?

It can be difficult diagnosing problems without some basic information.

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 should 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 in the ‘text to display’ box write My BQM 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.

Do as Mike suggested - remember if VM dont sort this to your satisfaction within 14 days of the 25th, you can cancel without any financial penalty as per the form that should have been in the welcome pack.
