I've recently started experiencing intermittent connection issues, where the upload speed will almost halt (at 0.01Mbps), and basic ping test will show 20-40% packet loss. This normally occurs for up to 30 minutes, but last month became continuous and made the connection unusable.
An engineer did visit last month, and replaced all the connections on the wall outside the property, and fitted a new connection point inside. This seemed to resolve the issue for a while, but it's now started occurring again.
Looking at the modulation of the upstream channels, this has dropped from 64qam down to 32/16qam over the past week.
As Mike has already stated, the Upstream Power is too high and will need an engineer to fix. Also there is a lot of noise on the circuit, as shown by the huge PostRS error count, and the fact one Upstream has dropped to 16 QAM to try and cope with this noise.
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.
I've just tried calling support, but couldn't get past the automated line "we've tested your connection, and you need to reboot your hub. If you're still having issues, please check our online support options". 😩
Your >> BQM << is showing dropped packets even though the latency isn't anything out of the ordinary.
At the top of the next hour can you do a reboot using this exact method please. This will put a time stamp on your BQM and also hopefully put your Pre & Post RS Errors back to zero. In an ideal world they will stay at zero so keep an eye on them ...
Switch the Hub off for 5 minutes using the small switch on the rear of the Hub next to the power cord.
Allow the Hub a few minutes to fully restart then check the error count.
