Re: Internet Intermittently Cutting Out

I’ve had this issue for over 6 months where the internet continually drops throughout the day and night. I’ve had several reboots and factory resets of the router and had an engineer out to check everything but there’s no improvement. Post code is BT61. Do I need a new router? I’m currently using Hub 3.0

Re: Internet Intermittently Cutting Out

Hi @Mricycold,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums - I'm very sorry to hear you've been having ongoing issues with your hub.

 

Just to get a better understanding of the situation, could you confirm a few things:

  • Are the drop-outs affecting all/ most of your devices or certain ones in particular?
  • Do they occur frequently at the same time of day or at random times?
  • Are the drop-outs happening over WiFi or are any wired connection affected too?
  • What has been advised by our engineer when you had the visit?

Let us know - we can try our best to help.

 

Many thanks,

Molly_G

Re: Internet Intermittently Cutting Out

• drop outs are affecting all devices.(as I tried to post this reply it done it my desktop which is wired went off and my phone which is wireless went off same time for 10 seconds)

• they occur random but frequently.

• drop outs are over both WiFi and wired.

• I have not been sent and engineer as after my 40 min call that they just insisted my broadband is perfect and had no drop outs. Basically saying i was  lying about the whole thing as it doesn't show on there end. Seemed like they had less of a clue about broadband than me and I don't know anything to be honest. No people skills either so that's why I'm here.

ALways best to start your own threads so people can work out to whom the problem belongs!

Re: Internet Intermittently Cutting Out

Hi, i have the exact same problem. Internet cuts intermittently during the day for 1-2 mins for the last 6 months. I tried to call you but couldn't reach your call center. Can you please urgently help me  since this starts to affect my job? thanks

I'm sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your internet connection. Taking a look at things this end, I can see your power levels are in need of some adjusting.

Checking the account I can see there is a prolonged power level issue. In order to resolve this we will need someone to come out to check on things for you.
