Internet speed keeps falling and rising at random points in the day
Usually later on in the day or early morning, my internet speeds start to drop to 0.09 Mb/s and rise back to the usual on and off for a long amount of time. Today it did this and completely disconnected from the internet. Could this be an issue on my end or is this fixable on virgin's end. I have tried restarting everything multiple times and it most of the time it just makes the internet go out fully.
Re: Internet speed keeps falling and rising at random points in the day
First, set up a free “BQM” to continually monitor the state of your connection and any dropouts. It does it 24/7/365 and it keeps a visual record of all of your network disconnection data (ensure you have “enable ping” box ticked in the hub settings).
Then, check all your coax connections are in nice and "finger" tight at the Hub and wall box and at any splitters/attenuators/etc and that the internal wiring is ok with no kinking or chaffing (rabbit chews!). Also check that all looks good with the outside cabling and wall box.
If that’s all good.... post up your Hub/network connection details and someone will check to see if there is a problem there. In your browser’s URL box type in http://192.168.0.1 (or http://192.168.100.1 - if in modem mode) and hit return. On the first page up [there should be no need to login if you have done so before] click on the “router status” icon at top right or the text at bottom middle - of first page up (depending on which hub you have) and then copy/paste 3 sets of data onto here - the downstream, upstream, & network logs. Don't worry too much about the formatting it can be easily read & don’t include personal data or MAC addresses - blank them out.
