Yesterday I have several disconnections. I noticed the first instance at approx 13:00pm and then several more between 22:00-23:00. The internet light turned red and the broadband light flashed quite a lot. Can someone explain why this happened please? After my troubles trying to obtain a connection as a new customer I do not expect to have my connection interrupted.
When the internet light is red on the router, (or the status light is amber on the new TalkTalk Wi-Fi hub) the connection to the exchange equipment (or fibre cabinet if fibre) is normally OK, but there is a virtual path that needs to exist from this equipment to the internet. It is this virtual path that is down. This can be caused generally by:-
The best way to resolve this is for me to pass this to one of TalkTalk's OCEs to investigate the condition for you now.
The forum is not real time 24/7 support, so depending on how busy they are & how many are working at any one time, this can take 24 - 48 hrs (excluding weekends & limited cover on Bank Holidays). Alternatively, you can call the call centre or use on-line chat. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. So the fewer entries you make on your thread now, the sooner they will pick it up.
Please make sure that your community profile includes your first & last names, broadband phone number.

I'm sorry to hear this.
I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults. I have also optimised the connection to see how it compares following this.
Please can you monitor the connection over the next 24hrs and let us know how you get on.
I have noticed in the last 24 there were two incidents of no connection all of which happened again between 22:00- 23:00. I can not confirm which lights were present on the router as I was upstairs at the time. The conection still seems very unreliable compared to my previous connection with Plusnet which had no such issue.
I'm sorry to hear this. I've re-checked the connection stats and the connection now looks stable for just over 1 day. Just to confirm, were you connected wired or wireless when the connection dropped?
Hi, I am unsure what you mean by 'different channels'. I am now disconnected yet again with a red light on internet.
Can someone please try to help as I am sick of going round in circles with this. I have had nothing but issues since joining very annoyed.
I've re-run the line test which is still clear.
Does your master socket have a test socket? Do you have an alternative router that you can test with to rule this out? If not then please let us know and we can arrange to send a replacement router for testing purposes.
