Network log critical warnings and disconnections

Hello everyone

I am desperate for some help, as my WIFI has become pretty much unusable for the past 6 months. I really think I need an engineer out to look at this, but I wondered what you all thought.

I am constantly getting random disconnections, every few minutes, on all devices in the house - TVs, laptops, desktop computers.

WIFI strength has also become ridiculously poor - I'm having to connect to my phone's data to stream a TV show or play some music, as my broadband just can't handle any of it anymore. 

I've been through all Virgin's help channels and nothing has solved it. I've performed a factory reset many times and it never helps. I'm getting nowhere!

Any help will be most appreciated.

Here's a recent log:

Re: Network log critical warnings and disconnections

Does it happen on Ethernet connected devices? Please post up/downstream stats.

Thank you for your reply. Yes, it happens on Ethernet too.

I'm not sure if this is the correct Downstream/Upstream info:

Re: Network log critical warnings and disconnections

Upstream power looks a little high (max on 1 channel) - VM Staff will pick this up - run some tests and possibly arrange an engineer visit!

(The high power looks like, from the logs, that it is causing T3 timeouts which will prevent the downstream channels locking and syncing properly which causes attempts to re-negotiate with the CMTS which manifests as a drop of connection!

Also, set up a 'Broadband Quality Monitor'. This will monitor the state of your connection and record any network dropouts etc - You can do this at ThinkBroadband (https://www.thinkbroadband.com/broadband/monitoring/quality)
Give it a while to gather data and then click 'Share Live graph' and paste the 'Direct Link' into the forum!

Re: Network log critical warnings and disconnections

Thank you lotharmat. Hope they do pick it up as their phone help just isn't helping!

I will give that a go this morning and post it here. Thank you for the link. 🙂

Re: Network log critical warnings and disconnections

I think I've set that up now. So, I guess it will just monitor my usage throughout the day? And a bit later, I can just create one of those graphs?

Re: Network log critical warnings and disconnections

Aye - it 'pings' it every second and then averages the times to generate the graph it produces!

If you post a link to the live graph - we'll be able to see it building and what state the connection is in!

Re: Network log critical warnings and disconnections

Hello again

Here's my graph, not sure if I've given it enough time? How is it looking?

Been getting dropouts all day today as per usual. So frustrating!

Cheers


Darren
