Poor Performance & Disconnections

In E4, I'm experiencing performance around 70Mb on a 200Mb service (wired laptop to router).

Worse, is that we've been chucked out of 3 important MS Teams meetings today (due to broadband going down).

While I might be able to live with 70Mb, getting chucked out of meetings is a deal-breaker.

How do I get this fixed ?

Re: Poor Performance & Disconnections

Is there any faults on the status page?

The most useful and up to date info comes from the 0800 561 0061 number. Try that to see if there are any faults that the web service hasn't picked up!

Re: Poor Performance & Disconnections

None of those sources suggest any issues.

Still seeing speed tests well below 200Mb (~100), and the earlier drop-outs were a problem.

Is this sort of performance and these drop-outs typical ?

Which leads to questioning whether we're on the right service..?

Re: Poor Performance & Disconnections

That performance is not typical.  Normally VM deliver the speeds they offer consistently, so chances are you've got one of a small range of common problems.

Connect to the hub by clicking on this link http://192.168.0.1/  That should pull up the log in page for the hub.  But don't log in, just click on the link "Check router status"  That'll bring up a window with five tabs.  Open the Downstream tab.  Select all the text (Ctrl-A if using a keyboard), copy it (Ctrl-C), then paste it (Ctrl-V) into a reply here as TEXT not screenshots.  Post that, do the same for the Upstream and Network log in separate posts.  You'll get an error message when you post the Network log, just click on "post" a second time.

Then we can check for any obvious problems with power, noise or error counts.  If that draws a blank we can get you to check other things.

Re: Poor Performance & Disconnections

Yep, looks like a power level issue.  I'll flag for the form staff, they'll book a technician for you, or advise if there's something else causing it like an area fault.

Re: Poor Performance & Disconnections

Hi @scallybert,

 

Welcome to our Community Help Forum 🙂

 

Thank you for making your first post regarding the performance issues of your broadband. I have taken a look and can see that your power levels are out of spec.

 

I have booked an engineer appointment for you to get this resolve, I will send you a private message with the details of your appointment and to confirm your address now.

 

Best wishes,

 

Serena
