I keep getting connection problems with my broadband. It keeps dropping. I was on web page looking at the news when it dropped about 3 times and stay down, so I left it for a bit and it come back up about 2 hour later. I went to the BBC sports page to hear the cricket and I could not keep up with what's going on and connection kept dropping.
When internet come back up, I went to TalkTalk web page and it said there was a problem with my connection and so I run a line test. I got a message on my mobile say there was not a problem.
As I am typing this the internet went down about 3 or 4 times.
I have been getting connection problems for a bit. I would like someone at TalkTalk to please keep an eye on it and try to fix it. I am putting this down the green box at end of the road and not TalkTalk.

As all tests are clear, then we can proceed to book an openreach engineer for you.
I'll drop you a PM to confirm some details to allow this to progress.

My TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub. is fine as the Lan don't drop. As for the openreach g fast modam that would be nice. But if my phone line go down now and then too then logic says it wont be my openreach g fast modam or am I wrong ?

Nope not tested with different router. its a openreach g fast modam with a TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub.
Edit: Just to add. That's all I got so can't try out another one.

I'm really sorry to hear this.
I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults but I can see re connections on the line.
Have you recently tested with a different router?

Ok, so that does indicate the router is losing connection with the internet.
The NTE 5C socket does have a test socket inside, you just squeeze the sides of the bottom half of the socket and that allows you to remove the faceplate, the test socket is then visible behind.

@Skynet_TX Both DSL and internet light go off. I don't have a test scoket on my master phone socket. I have a master socket 5c. Thank you for replying.
Just to add I made notes of when my internet went down between 17:00 and 20:00. At one point it went down for 47 mins. Also not long after I started to post then phone went down but it's back up.
17.02 = 3 mins. 17:06 = 47 mins. 18:02 = 8 mins. 18:25 = 2 mins. 18:31 = 7 ins. 19:16 = 6 mins. 19:24 = 1 min. 19:27 = 1 min. 19:29 = 15 mins at this point it pop up and for a sec then dropped 19:4 = 2 mins. 19:47 = 3. 19:51 = 9 mins
after that it stay up for 50 mins then went down for about 2 mins.

Do you know if the problem is with the router losing its connection to the internet (in which case a light on your router which is normally constantly lit will change colour or flash), or is it that you are losing Wi-Fi connection between your device(s) and your router (in which case the light(s) on the router will just carry on looking normal).
Do you have any ‘wired’ devices, do they also lose connection ?
If the router is losing connection with the internet, then if you have a landline phone can you check to see if that is working normally (i.e. you have a clear dial tone and no noise on the line). Also, If your master phone socket has a test socket then you could try the router in there, that would then eliminate any of the phone wiring in your home as being a possible cause of the problem.
The TalkTalk staff on this community will be able to help, they will hopefully be able to respond to this post tomorrow.
