WiFi dropping out constantly

Joining in

Over the last few weeks-month, my WiFi keeps dropping out. I’ve reset the hub each time but it’s now really impacting my wife who works from home, and the reason we joined Virgin for it’s reputable service, and she’s not being able to access her meetings or is being kicked out during them as the internet is losing connection. 

I’m not sure why this keeps happening, we’ve only had Virgin just over 2 months, and it’s becoming increasingly common. Not happy as paying for a service that we’re not getting efficiently. 

Has anyone else experienced this and can point me in the right direction? There doesn’t seem to be a clear contact method to Virgin themselves through the app and WiFi issues.

First things first - let's narrow it down to is it just wifi?

What happens to ethernet connected devices?

If ethernet connections are ok and it is just a wifi issue - then see my reply in message 4 here..


I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired, 2 on WiFi) Hub5 in modem mode with Apple Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's & TP-Link Archer C64 WAP. On Volt 350Mbps, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.


The only ethernets connected are to devices that aren’t used daily, so I couldn’t say if they’re dropping out when the wife’s laptop is. I’ll have to try and see if I can see when it happens again. 

My skybox is connected via Ethernet and it is occasionally also saying cannot access network but then I turn it off and back on and things seem to load back up again. I didn’t have this issue before. 

The main issue is my wife’s work laptop and secondly our security cameras that are WiFi connected, saying 80-100% WiFi on cameras, but then every device connected through WiFi then says “no internet access” even though they’re connected. 

Can you post your Hub status and logs?
Someone should be spot if there is a problem
Navigate to (or - if in modem mode)
Don't log in!
Click on 'router status'
Copy/paste the data from each of the tabs as text into a 'REPLY' as opposed to 'QUICK REPLY'. The forum software will remove the MAC addresses for you (If you get an error - just click the 'post' button again).

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 (
Give it a while to gather data and then click 'Share Live graph' and paste the 'Direct Link' into the forum!

Hahahahahah what a crock. I've been getting the same reply for 4 months now almost on a daily basis, only mines will be fixed by 1530 on whatever day I complain about line dropping. I say almost because some days I just can't bear to contact VM and continue to repeat every single thing every single day and listen to the same old spoof to get rid of me for the day. 

Hey johhny_g, thank you for reaching out and I am sorry to hear this,

I have just checked your online and I can't see any SNR outages at all.

I have looked at your connection and everything is looking fine right now. ^MM
