Frequent connection drop outs (part 2)

Wizz Kid

Old thread:


Forum decided it would be a good idea to block me from replying to my "old" thread... @KeithFrench


Anyway, I tried channel 1 but it seemed worse, so I've gone back to 6.


Here's also a ping from inside my room:

--- ping statistics ---

58 packets transmitted, 40 packets received, 31.0% packet loss

round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 9.450/541.416/1947.868/496.737 ms


The interference is seriously obvious. Pages were struggling to load and high ping times. Then as soon as I bring my laptop out of my room (closer line of sight to the router), everything instantly connects and the ping time improves to an avg of 12s!

Sorry to butt in, while your waiting for a reply from Keith, I've had a look and can see a lot of errors on the wifi.


I've dispatched a different model router to you so that we can actively collect some connection data via a new network tool we are testing here.


If you can connect this up and let us know, we can make sure the firmware is up to date and then this will start recording connection data relating to any devices you have connected.

When you have tried the new router that Karl is sending you, if you still have problems, please get me a fresh set of screenshots from the Wi-Fi analyser you are using.



I am not employed by TalkTalk, I'm just a customer. If my post has fixed the issue, please mark it as the Best Answer.

Hi @OCE_Karl,


Can you tell me the exact errors you are seeing please?


If they contain private data then please PM me.

The errors are TX (Transmit) and RX (Receive).


So at the router wifi it shows a high number of these errors.


Currently showing : 


WiFi Errors (Tx/Rx) 3458 / 679

@OCE_Karl New router is connected now.


Version SG4K10001400t

I can see that the router firmware has updated to version SG4K10002600t


How have you found the connection since your last post?
