intermittent broadband connection

Since installation around six weeks ago, we have experienced intermittent broadband connection at varying times every single day. We have tried looking for local faults, running tests and resetting the hub, and nothing changes. We need to speak to someone who can take a look and fix this issue as a matter of urgency.

It impacts across all devices at various times of day and night. We've set up a Think Broadband Quality Monitor, which backs up the issue of high latency at various points throughout the day. It's important to note that speed doesn't seem to be an issue when the network is connected to the internet, the issue is around regular dropouts and connection, specifically not connecting to the wifi network but connecting to the internet once connected to the wifi network.

Re: intermittent broadband connection

Can you post your Hub status and logs?
Someone should be spot if there is a problem
Navigate to http://192.168.0.1 (or http://192.168.100.1 - if in modem mode)
Don't log in!
Click on 'router status'
Copy/paste the data from each of the tabs. The forum software will remove the MAC addresses for you (you may need to click the 'post' button again).

Re: intermittent broadband connection

Upstream power is right on the lower threshold of acceptable! - VM Staff will pick this up and need to investigate.

Re: intermittent broadband connection

Sounds like a silly question but will someone from VM just eventually spot this post and crack on or is there some trick you’d advise to get someone looking at the issue?

Thanks again for your help.

Re: intermittent broadband connection

Hello @VivienneK.

 

Welcome to the community page, thank you for posting on here.

 

I am sorry to see that you have been having internet issues.

 

Can you please set up a BMQ chart and send me the link? Or a screenshot of the BMQ chart for over the next 24 hours?

 

Look forward to your response.

A comment from a community member above suggested that our upstream stats/settings seemed at the edge of acceptable to provide a good service. Perhaps start by reading the above, where we’ve shared full hub stats, and work your way from there.

Thanks
