Throughout the day, my internet cuts out for a minute or so before reconnecting. Seems to happen more when I’m using more bandwidth, particularly video conferencing with work. The WiFi signal remains active but I lose all connection. Happens to all devices simultaneously so can’t be the work laptop or anything like that. Happens far less frequently on evenings and weekends so at a loss on what could cause it.
Issue started maybe 6 weeks ago but has grown more frequent ever since. Starting to impact my home working, particularly as I’m the guy who keeps disappearing from video calls!
Router is a Superhub 3 and it’s a 100mb fibre connection that was flawless up until this issue.
Is the connection any more stable using an ethernet cable connected device ?
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)

Well this might have been more straightforward to diagnose than first though. Phoned the automated line and told there’s a complex fault in the area which likely explains things. Weird thing is that the My Virgin Media website says no local issues.
Thanks for sharing the number - at least I know there’s nothing I can do until that fault solved.
Unfortunately, today has been a pretty bad one. I think I’ve had 3-5 disconnects throughout the day. Have checked the 0800 number and there’s no longer a fault in the area so I do think the issue is specific to me.
I have been having the exact same issue. When myself or my girlfriend are on conference calls the internet cuts out and although my wifi signal is still connected it says 'not secured' and there's no internet until I disconnect and reconnect to the router.
The issue is on multiple devices so it's not the devices.
