I'm sorry to hear this.
Your line is showing in sync at 35mb.
Please can you power down your router for a full 30 minutes and then run a speed test following this?
We checked today as requested we got 32.6 download 8.6 upload.
Our concern is checker talktalk showing orange light query problem between house and exchange. We lost internet altogether 2 times recently. Any idea why?
I can see two disconnections on the 28th, nothing since. Sorry, I don't know what the cause of the disconnections was, how has it been since?
We lost internet access on 2 separate days and phone in 1 of those days. We switched off as requested by Debbie yesterday but other than that ok. It does seem to drop speed from time to time?
For a sync speed of 35Mbps we usually expect throughput speeds of around 28Mbps to 31Mbps but it can vary a bit from this. Your sync speed is a bit low though but this may improve if the connection is now stable (DLM should move you to a faster profile if the connection is stable with a low error count)
Oh very technical but I trust you Lol 😂. Actually the internet just went off before but came back on within 5 mins. We do find when using laptop the connection is less stable.why ?
Sorry, it could have been me running the line test that caused the disconnection
Not sure why the connection would be less stable on your laptop, is it connected by wifi to your router, or Ethernet cable?
Wifi can have it's own issues based on any localised interference, the speed of the adapter in a device etc, so a wired speed test will always give more accurate results.
If the TalkTalk speed test is not working for you, the most accurate alternative is Sam Knows Speed Test
All speed tests will give a slightly different result because of their location, server load and network traffic etc, so never be worried that the results are not all the same, as long as they are not greatly different all should be ok.
If you do see issues over wifi specifically, then you can try the following advice :
Log into the router and manually change the SSID (Wi Fi) name of the 5ghz channel.
I often find it is better to keep the 2 broadcast channels separate. For example, I have changed mine, and call one Home2Ghz and the other Home5Ghz.
Some devices can drop the connection when the SSID's remain the same.
Also, you can try manually setting the wifi channel for each broadcast channel. Try channel 6 for the 2ghz channel and 44 for the 5ghz channel.
There are apps you can download that can show the wireless channels in use. For example I use WiFi analyser for Android to show the wifi channels in use around me and this allows me to set the least congested channel.
