Broadband Issues

So my router constantly seems to be updating it self, as the two green arrows flash regularly at different times of the day. This happens every single day, and during this time I am left without a connection for around 60mins+. This is the third SUPERHUB 3 router I have ordered from virgin media, and clearly they continually to go faulty. Furthermore when The odd times I am connected, when I am gaming.. I have huge lag spikes and rubber banding issues.. and the connection does not seem stable at all even thought it is hard wired (Ethernet) into the console. All in all.. I am very unhappy, to say I’m paying for 100mgb.

Re: Broadband Issues

It's highly unlikely that 3 Hubs are havinging the same fault/issue - its probably your connection that needs looking at. Can you try this procedure

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
First switch the Hub off for 5 minutes AND unplug it from the mains. Whilst it's off, do a quick check that all of your coax cable connections are in nice and "finger" tight - at the Hub and wall box and also at any connectors etc. Ensure there are no “unterminated cable loose ends. Disconnect all the connections and reconnect to be sure. Also check that the internal wiring is ok with no kinking or chaffing, check that all looks good with the outside cabling and wall box. Then switch it on again and leave 5 minutes

Also, post up your Hub/network connection details and someone will check to see if there is a problem there. In your browser’s URL box type in http://192.168.0.1 (or http://192.168.100.1 - if in modem mode) and hit return. On the first page up [there should be no need to login if you have done so before unless you have the New Hub4 when you do] click on the “router status” icon/text at bottom-middle of first page up and then copy/paste as “Formatted Text” (not images) 3 FULL sets of data onto here – 2 pages from the Downstream, 2 from the Upstream, & the Network Logs page. Don't worry too much about the formatting it can be easily read & DON’T include personal data or MAC addresses - blank them out - if you copy/paste the data, the board software will do this for you (you may need to click the "submit" button again.

Also, in the meantime... If you haven’t already, set up a free “Broadband Quality Monitor” to continually monitor the state of your connection and record any true network dropouts , latency issues, packet drops, etc - it will thus allow you to differentiate between those and simple wifi dropouts. It does it 24/7/365 and it keeps a visual record of any/all of your network disconnections, useful data to have to match to the Network logs (in your Hub settings) and also in discussions with VM - note it will take a few hours to start seeing a sensible picture - post up the “link” (as per instructions on the TB website) when you have the first 24h period.
