I had another drop this morning and slow up speed. See summary below since I restarted router on Monday.
Any idea what is causing these drops and slow up speed?
Monday 25th March
Turned router off for a few hours
Restarted at 11:30h - reconnected at 40/10
Tuesday 26th March
Internet dropped at 06:20h - reconnected at 40/10
Friday 29th March
Internet dropped at 07:20h - reconnected at 40/0.8
Apologies for the delay.
I've completed a further line test which is still showing a possible fault. I have escalated this over to our Network Team for investigation.
I will post back on this thread as soon as I receive further information.
The ORE is here now. Line tests and fibre tests are all passing with flying colours yet nothing has changed.
The router has reconnected at 40 down and 10 up.
What was the fault you were seeing as that may help? Also, is there any monitoring equipment that I can use to try and catch the intermittent fault? The stats on the WiFi Hub don’t appear to be thorough enough and the logging feature is practically useless.
ORE is still trying to investigate, but in the abscence of an actual fault he is somewhat stymied.
There was no advice other than continue to monitor. He couldn’t find any fault during his test so as far as he was concerned there was no fault to fix at that point in time. He did ask if there was any noticeable pattern but as yet I’ve struggled to identify one.
Previously I had been able to correlate some internet disconnects with landline use but that’s not been the case recently.
We have left router and phone connected to test socket.
Our Network Team have advised that the line test is now passing so the engineer may have cleared the fault whilst they were investigating. We can also see that DLM was reset this morning just after the engineer visit.
Please can you continue to monitor the connection over the next couple of days and let us know how you get on.
Herewith an update. Since the ORE visit last week my internet connection has mostly been stable. In fact the DSL connection up time got to about 6 days before I noticed a drop. At that point the router reconnected at 40/10 so all ok.
However tonight I’ve not been so lucky. My wife was using the landline and towards the end of the call she said the sound changed. To quote “it went all echo’y”. Roughly at that point I lost my internet connection. I was streaming a tv program. Maybe no correlation, but worth mentioning. That was about 9:55. Since then the router has disconnected a few times. Each time the up sync speed has got worse. I had 40/7.7 and now 40/2.9. I’m expecting it will get worse overnight so will check again in the morning.
The router and landline are still connected to the test socket. They have been that way since before the ORE visit.
Clearly there is something wrong with my internet connection. Why do I get a period of stability and then a degraded service? This has pretty much been the case since I took this fibre contract just over a year ago, I’ve not exactly had a great service.
Would appreciate your guidance please?
