I Tried returned a RT-AX8TU & Asus EI mesh pod to Amazon as things were really no better & continue to get drop outs all the time & I know its not the wifi as I am getting continous drop outs listening to Radio 3 through my Linn Klimax Ds/1 streamer connected via LAN to the Virgin Hub ...there it goeas again!...I have shown below the quality monitor for the virgin hub below though if I am honest I don't quite understand what I am looking at...I received a notification that Virgin were working in the area last week but still same same old....counting down the days now till my contract ends next month....this was yesterday today it is even worse.
Broadband isn't my direct area of expertise and others are far better placed to comment - but that BQM looks pretty fine to me.
Whatever is causing your issues, I don't think the reliability of your broadband is it.

Hi there @Pidge22
Thank you so much for your post and welcome back to the forums.
I am so sorry to hear that you are experiencing these issues with your Hub and connection. I have taken a look on our side and I can see there are a few issues that are going to need an engineer to look into.

That BQM looks excellent.
Just to make sure here. You say your connected to the LAN, is that directly or is it using a powerline adapter?
There could be issues with the Modem/Router but hard to see that as you had tried the Asus kit (The Hub was in Modem Mode right?).
Do you have another ethernet cable to try?
If your using Powerline Adapters then could you try connecting directly to the Hub (Pain, I know).
You have trouble with all of your devices?
Well we had our engineer visit who thinks the problem was cuased by a faulty network cable into the hub,so I ran a speedcheck afer the cable was removed which I attach & despite 1 gb coming into the hub my macbook was showing a speed of 50mb which the engineer said was acceptable due to the variables with wifi.
This just reaffirms that the only way I will resolve my issues is to leave Virgin & return to Sky in 37 days when my contract ends as I had the same variables when I was with Sky but none of the issues I have had since joining Virgin.....
Its clear to see from the attached latency test its the network worsening at peak times ...
