Apologies for the confusion, I meant have we ever sent you a different make and model of router? Would you like us to send you a different make and model of router for testing?
No I have never used a different router and yes please send a different type to try and narrow down the cause of this problem. Could you also please update the firmware on my HG633 as it is showing
Serial Number N7193534N009919
Hardware Version FAST5364 3.00
Software Version SG4K10002816t
GUI Version 3.7.8
I have the same problem. I have tried a replacement HG633 but with no difference. Surely it's not much to ask in the 21st Century for Talktalk to provide a stable router speed that falls within the parameters of the speeds that were promised when my Super Fast Fibre contract was started? 12Mbps is not SFF Broadband by any stretch of the imagination. I was asked to start a new topic on this but why? When I write my problem It keeps bringing me back to this page.
@norse , each help thread is worked as a problem for the individual poster only, as the problems are solved specifically with that customer in mind.
You need to return to the start of the board and click Start a Topic to begin your own thread. You can keep track of it by getting notifications or looking at ACTIVITY in your profile area.
Apologies, we ask all our members to create there own topic to avoid confusion. If you click on the blue topic button at the top of the broadband page then we'll be happy to take a look at this for you.
Ah, got it, Michelle. This is the second TalkTalk router since going on Faster Fibre but I'm game to try another if you think it might help. I'm assuming that you know what make the current one is? It just says TalkTalk and Device Version DG8041W-2-T. Thanks.
Hello Debbie - and Michelle
Between the two of you it seems that you have 'cracked it'. The new router has been installed for 7 days without a 'blip', the best run since early July, when it managed 11 days before reboot.
Download has been from 37.6 to 37.9 - the same level I always got when I rebooted after the all too frequent drops. Upload is now 6.8 to 7.1 - that's a consistent 25% up on all results with the old router installed in December 2019. Fingers crossed we now have a stable situation. Sincere thanks for the support. Take a bow.
