Re: complaints

to be honest, I don't need to make a complaint. I know my virgin broadband hub is faulty, I need to speak to technical support. however after 3 weeks and lots of calls, most days and being on hold at least an hour each of those days i still have not got through.
a complaint is my only option, which i did about a week ago by post but no answer yet.

broadband faulty hub

hi

I have had a check on my broadband over the phone and it says I need to speak with technical support to resolve as there is a fault. My internet is now very poor, when it used to be excellent

However, after many calls over the last 3 weeks I can not get through. 

I have spoken with the cancellation team to ask their advice, they then put me on hold to find out... and leave me there until the line goes blank about 30 minutes later.

are there any vm engineers who can offer advice.

thanks

Re: broadband faulty hub

@alfairbank Please don't create multiple threads for effectively the same issue, it doesn't get your issue resolved any quicker and is against the forum rules.  I have merged your threads.

Not all broadband issue are the result of a faulty hub.  If you want to post some hub stats the community can have a look for you and see if anything in the figures looks wrong and advise accordingly. Or you can wait for the VM staff to pick up this thread (can take a few days) and run checks on your line.

If you go to http://192.168.0.1/ (or http://192.168.100.1/ if you are in modem mode) to get the VM hub GUI. Don't login (unless you have a Hub 3 and this is your first visit to the hub GUI, or a Hub 4 which does require you to login) but instead click on Router Status which is either a button in the top right of the screen or a text link at the bottom of the screen depending on which hub you have. Click on the Downstream, Upstream and Network Log sections and copy & paste the figures from those screens and post them here, don't worry about the formatting or you can post screenshots if that is easier. If using screenshots be careful to edit out or obscure any reference to your WAN IP or MAC address in the log to protect your privacy.  If you copy and paste the log then the forum will automatically censor this sensitive information. Also note that images will take time to appear on the forum due to a combination of awaiting moderator approval and buggy code.

Re: broadband faulty hub

thanks Scott,
but i have no idea what anything in your third paragraph means haha

it took me 30mins just to create an account on this forum

i called virgin, they tested my internet. they said it was faulty and should speak to someone. thats all i know.
if i coud test it myself i would.

i think the complaint by post and signed for is the best way for me to go
