I have just recently moved house and upgraded to faster fiber. Doing a bit of research it says that I am still in a "stabilisation" period (14days) and my connection can ocasionally drop.
My problem is that the connection is dropping/router restarting about every 2minutes (not ocasionally), making even impossible to use talktalk live chat function, that's why I am starting a topic here. Everything is connected according to the instructions from the packaging. I only have a one BT box in the aparment so I am assuming that's the master one.
When the internet works, it works great and the speed is stable, but even during the time it took me write this post, the connection dropped twice
Any ideas? I don't have an alternative ruter to try the connection with.
Are there any noticeable issues with the phone service such as noise on the line, or lack of dialtone? Does your master socket have a test socket you can connect to?
Subject to that, the support team here will gladly look into this for you, but bear in mind they won't be back online until Monday. Make sure that your personal details including TalkTalk landline number are complete on your community profile here so that they can link your forum identity with your account.
I'm sorry to hear this and I'll take a look now. I've run a test on the line which has detected a potential fault. Would it be possible to borrow a phone for testing purposes to rule out any issues with the voice service such as noise on the line or no dial tone?
A voice fault can affect the broadband connection and would need to be investigated first.
I will update you if I can get a phone anywhere as soon as possible.
I am not at home at this very moment, but I have left the router plugged directly into the test socket and the internet connection hasn't dropped since.
Shall I leave it in the test socket for the moment?
