I'm really being blighted by recurrent disconnects. This has been for weeks/months. The internet will drop, usually for a minute or so , then reconnect, run fine for a while, then disconnect again. They are usually brief but happen multiple times a day which for a family with two adults who do some work remotely, and three children one of whom is still being schooled remotely, causes a lot of problems, especially if our daughter drops out in the middle of a lesson. The talktalk tools initially says "no known faults" but on doing a line test it says "there';s a problem with our network.. Your services will be affected"
The phone never seems to be affected. I have the internet plugged into the master socket. I have tried changing routers which makes no difference - my current model is a TP Link Archer VR 2800. I would love to know how to resolve this (ironically I lost connection for 2-3 minute while writing this)

I'm really sorry to hear this.
I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults but I can't connect to your router.
Would you like me to send a replacement router for testing?

Yes please. I did repeated line tests and it eventually said there was a fault. An openreach person came and did some work . Was fine for 4 days, but now had about 10 disconnects this morning and it’s only 8 am

I'm sorry to hear this. I've re-run the line test which is clear. The sync speed looks consistent, however the connection does look unstable. Is the voice service ok with no noise on the line? Does your main socket have a test socket?

before the new router came an openreach person came after the talktalk online tests said there was a line fault and he did a new master socket etc so i don't think its that. voice line can be a little crackly
