Regular Disconnects Southend-on-sea SS1 Area

Hi

 

Since yesterday evening I have been receiving very regular disconnects.  I am in the SS1 area of Southend-on-sea (VM area reference 06), is anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks

Re: Regular Disconnects Southend-on-sea SS1 Area

Hello

When you say disconnects do you mean you internet goes down if so can you please do the following.

Can you please post your network stats from the hub

Open a Web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) and enter the address http://192.168.0.1

Note: If you have enabled Modem Mode on your Hub 3.0 you will need to use 192.168.100.1 instead.

Do not login but click on where it says "Check Router Stats" and then copy and post from the following 4 tabs, Downstream, Upstream, Configuration and Network logs and we can check your power level, also while you about that can you please go around and check that all connectors to VM equipment are hand tight. Also while doing this please check for any damage to cable, or un-terminated connection without either coax or a terminator.

Hello

What is your speed normally on the internet connection and I take it you may still have a superhub 2.0, if you want to upgrade to the hub 3.0 for free go here https://www.virginmedia.com/shop/hub-swap.html?buspart=uk_app_connect2_hubswap

Hello

Check the stats / power levels and everything looks to be within specification.

Re: Regular Disconnects Southend-on-sea SS1 Area

The downstream power levels are just out of VM spec on most of the channels.
The upstream is a tad warm, but should be OK if stable.

The logs are showing the connection dropping and re-registering with the CMTS which would look like the Hub rebooting.

You could give the coax a quick once over checking for obvious signs of damage and all connectors are hand tight, but you will probably need a tech visit if there is not a local area fault.

You will need to contact VM for resolution, either by waiting here about a week until a VM Forum Team Member picks up the thread, or give them a call on 150 from a VM line or 0345 454 1111 for a quicker response.

Re: Regular Disconnects Southend-on-sea SS1 Area

I'm the same area as you and since Thursday I have also experienced similar issues.

I work from home and also in Iwade (just over the water from you) have to use a Vodafone booster for signal. Internet has been  intermittently dropping off and also slowing down.

I can tell from my phone signal dying and also when on the xbox the lag is unplayable. My network has had no changes so I'm convinced this is a Virgin issue and even more so following your post.

I think I'll give them a week to resolve it or I'm going to goto another provider as I'm out of contract.

The thought of using their support feels me with dread. I've only ever known them to be inept.

 

Thanks

 

Paul

Re: Regular Disconnects Southend-on-sea SS1 Area

Hi re84uk,

 

Thanks for your post and sorry to see that you're having problems with your broadband disconnecting regularly.

 

From what you've posted already, it looks like I'll need to have a closer look at things, so I'll pop you a private message requesting some information.

 

I'll speak to you there.

 

Thanks

Melissa
