So lately (about 2 weeks or more) I've been having connection issues with my broadband, it started out every once in a while which didn't seem to be a problem.
The last few days though, I've barely managed to get on the internet. It can be online anywhere between 1 minute to 2 hours before disconnecting. It's gotten that bad where I barely have a chance to refresh the webpage before it disconnects again.
I run a health check on talktalk dashboard and it says this:
Our health check shows that your internet has been disconnecting.
Your Line Speed
Your Estimated Speeds: 61 Mb - 80 Mb. Your Actual Speed: 76 Mb.
We tested your connection and there are no known faults between our network and your home.
So is there anyway to fix this problem as now I'm unable to use internet, just posting this message took me 4* tries.
Update: I've noticed between midnight and 6 in morning, it get so much worse. Just trying to even get internet is impossible it's on for less than a minute and disconnects. Can't even watch a youtube video without it disconnecting 6 or 7 times in a single 10 minute video.

No extension wires, nothing just faceplate with router plugged in.
Is there a charge for new faceplate? That you can send in post or something. As I don't need a engineer to clip it on the from lol.

Do you have any extension sockets wired to the face plate?
Our TalkTalk engineers can replace this for you or alternatively you can leave the router connected at the test socket.

Faceplate makes connection worse for some reason. Even in test socket it disconnect once in a while for less than a minute but least I can use internet now.
How do I get a new faceplate and how much?

There's no problem leaving the router connected to the test socket if it provides a more stable connection. I would maybe monitor for a while longer at the test socket and then try with the faceplate back on to see if the connection becomes unstable again just to make sure that the face plate is definitely the problem

Thanks for testing this. If the stability has improved at the test socket then this would suggest a possible issue with the faceplate or internal wiring. Do you have any extension sockets?

Monitored internet for 32 hours and it only disconnection twice for less than two minutes. So does that mean the faceplate (or whatever) it's called is broken? Is it save to leave router plugged into test socket for now on?
Thanks for any help.

I don't use landline, but I plugged my old one in and it seems to be okay. I've just connected router to test socket, I had to use the microfilter adapter as the test socket is not ADSL.
I will let you know if I have anymore disconnects in the next 24 hours and see how it goes.

I'm really sorry to hear this.
The line test has detected a possible fault.
Is your landline service working ok when making calls? Is the router currently connected at the test socket?
I can then pass this fault over to Openreach for further investigation.
