Ongoing Broadband Dropouts

For the past 6 months, on a daily basis my broadband connection drops to pre-broadband speeds or dial-up speeds and on occasion dropsout completely.

The equipment is in the open (not in a cupboard) and gets extremely hot. 

I check the service status for my area and it's always green with no issues. 

I've tried to look at the cable, but in a block of flats there are so many and they look okay and not damaged. 

Other residents in my building suffer with the same problem. 

What can I do? 

What should I do? 

Thank you.

Re: Ongoing Broadband Dropouts

Hiya,

Firstly:

What hub is it?

If it is a hub 3 and it is in router mode; are there any red lights showing?

If it is hot it could be overhearing which could cause it to throttle back on processing - which would manifest as as slowdown!

Re: Ongoing Broadband Dropouts

Hi, thank you for your reply.

It's Hub 3.0. 

It's in router mode. 

It always has a single white/yellow light.

Thanks.

Re: Ongoing Broadband Dropouts

Thanks for this:

Sorry for the questions - trying to narrow it down.

Do the same things happen on an ethernet connection to the hub?

Re: Ongoing Broadband Dropouts

Ok - looks like a broadband issue as opposed to just a wifi issue! Let's have a look at some hub stats!

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).

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 (https://www.thinkbroadband.com/broadband/monitoring/quality)
Give it a while to gather data and then click 'Share Live graph' and paste the 'Direct Link' into the forum!
