Winter Weather ruins the wifi

Joining in

Got suggested to make a pointless forum post about how when it’s winter time my internet stops working 3-4am and then starts working at lunch time when the weather is warmer. 

Yes, I have looked at the service status and there is nothing wrong with it. Yes, I’ve complained about it to Virgin Media before. No, it doesn’t matter if I’m using Wifi or Ethernet.

Has Virgin Media helped me with my issue the last 3 winters? No.

Signal level issue without doubt. When it gets cooler your levels are going out of spec at your property, causing the connection to drop. Post your connection stats on the forum & this will show up if you are close to limits during the day.

We need the downstream & upstream values, plus the network log from your hub stats page.

Put (192.168.100. if using modem mode) into your browser then use the "Check router stats" link. Then cut & paste the relevant details.
