Persistent internet drop outs

I have been suffering from internet cut outs for along time now (3-6months); up until this point it has been very stable. I use a computer which is connected via ethernet and both internet on wired and wireless connections drop out (wireless coming from my iPhone). I have read many threads about this but none of them seem to give me an answer. We have recently had our hub upgraded so dont see why it could be that. I have just started a BQM and will post the live link here:

Hopefully you can help.

Re: Persistent internet drop outs

link is not to your bqm... can you do this
____________________________________

Can you Check for any “known network faults first - Try in 2 places

1) Try the “check service,”Area status webpage" (link at top right of this forum)

2) Then also try the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually gives the most up to date info. and tells you of more local issues down to street cab/ postcode level.
__________________________________________________________________

If nothing shows....

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) (DONT click these links) - and hit return.
If you have a Hub4 or 5 then login on the first page up. If you have an SH2 or Hub3 - dont log in just click on the “router status” icon/text at bottom-middle (Hub3) or top/right (SH’s) of the Login page.
Then Navigate to these “data pages” and just copy/paste the normal “Formatted Text” (not images) 3 FULL sets of data onto here – 2 tables 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). If character limits are “exceeded” - just do two posts

Re the BQM . 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) In the URL box paste the link you copied and then click OK

Re: Persistent internet drop outs

May just be dodgy firmware on the router/hub.

What Hub model is it and is it in router or modem mode - if the latter what router are you using?

But, first check that the i.p. address in the BQM settings is the same as that showing on a computer/laptop Google search for My IP. They do change occasionally or you may have mistyped it

Re: Persistent internet drop outs

Hi @Georgedmunds 

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the community forums, it's great to have you here. 

 

I am so sorry to hear that you are facing issues with your connection, can I ask if this is occurring across wired of WiFi connections? 

 

Are you able to upload a live BQM for us per jbrennand's advise?

Re: Persistent internet drop outs

As the Hub is in modem mode... what make/model of router are you using?

Somewhere in its settings you need to find and tick the box that states something like...

"Respond to ICMP echo requests sent to WAN IP"

(i.e. Pings!)
