Hi @infidel 

Are there any known issues? Have you looked at Check service status at the top of the page? You can also a run a test on your equipment from there. The Check Service Status is often only populated with details of wide spread outages.

You could also try the automated Service Status number  0800 561 0061.  This often gives details of more localised issues down to postcode level. Whilst not ideal it's probably a better indicator of known problems and should also show the latest estimated date/time for the fault to be repaired.

I have checked the service status. Its saying everything is fine. I am not to tech savvy on these matters. Most off the time everything is OK apart from a box popping up on the PC screen saying on or off line. It does not affect anything else only just typing comments on Facebook  emails letters . Its a annoyance    

Nothing I have done to resolve the problem of my PC going on and of line continually has worked The TV is not affected Its happend since I had to change to the new router. I would like to arrange a new router is sent to me or an engineer to look at the old wiring cables. I am seriously looking at not renewing my contract with VM which I am very reluctant to do. 

Hello infidel.

Thank you for bringing the router issue to our attention.

Sorry you have had to though.

Regarding the replacement, it would be best to arrange for an engineer to attend.

That way we can also check the internal and external cabling/connections.

If we sent out a replacement and the symptoms persisted, it would delay actual fix.

Hope that makes sense.

So I can arrange this for you.

I will need to send you a private message to pass security. 
If you can check your logo at the  top right of your screen that would be great.

If you have a VM Hub 5 - Avoid using the 2.5Gb/s network port.
( A recent firmware update is causing many devices to fail on the 2.5Gb/s network port )

A network cable fault can cause exactly what you are seeing on the PC
as can a PC that has an aggressive power saving plan enabled.

It would be worth trying a replacement cable, Cat 6a is quite sufficient.

Perhaps also try the PC in an Always On power plan.
