internet keeps dropping

My internet keeps dropping to slow speeds or stopping altogether. I've tried caling the call centre, its near impossible to get through and if you do I've had the so called staff just hang up for no reason. So no help there. I messaged there complaints people about 3/4 days ago and they cant be bothered to call back. The second my cpntract is up I'll be going back to sky as virgin are beond a joke. We are a family of gamers which is impossilbe when you keep losing you internet

Re: internet keeps dropping

Can you set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) at thinkbroadband.com - this will give you an insight into what is happening with the signal at the other side of the Hub, it will take a few hours to get any kind of trend showing although you should post the link straight away.

Post a link to your BQM on here.

Instructions for posting BQM Link

Under your BQM graph are two links in red.

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 in the ‘text to display’ box write My BQM then click OK - you can post the link straight away.

Then

 

Can you please

Type 192.168.0.1 (192.168.100.1 in Modem mode) into your browser URL bar and press enter. 

Hub 2 & 3 When the page appears DO NOT LOG IN but click ‘Check Router Status’.

Hub 4 When the page appears LOG IN then click ‘Check Router Status’.

Copy and paste the contents of the Downstream, Upstream and Network Log tabs onto here, if you get a yellow warning click the Post button again. Use one post for each tab if you wish. Please do not use screen grabs.

A Guru will be along soon to decipher the info.

Re: internet keeps dropping

You have hit a wall on here then.

You can either phone in (08:00 is the best time) or wait on here for a few days (6 to 7 days average) until one of the VM Forum Staff comes along.

If you wait on here Do Not bump the thread it will put it further down the VM 'to do list'.

Re: internet keeps dropping

Funnily enough you have the ability to set up an account on here but not another website ?

The instructions are very clear and simple, use them !!
