I have the new talktalk hub router and i've noticed my connection drops and restarts approximately every 10 to 15 days. Just checking if this is normal. behaviour? Also does this particular router have any firewall restrictions on using a vpn. I work from home and connect via a vpn but notice that on occasions i get disconnected or am blocked from doing certain things that seem to be firewall related.
Yes I am . It can drop multiple times per day. I tried looking at the wifi hubs router logs but they are very BIG nd there is no way to go directly to the last page of the logs - you are forced to go through the logs page by page and there are just too many pages for me to get to the very end 😞
Have you tried changing the DNS and then connecting to your work vpn to see if this makes a difference ?

Haven't posted on this issue in a while buti've been having ongoing problems with my internet. I believed i have narrowed down the problem to my talktalk hub router. For some reason it s sporadically "throttling" the internet speed of any connected devices. The sync speed i am getting shoud be sufficient to handle all connected devices. Yesterday it got so bad that i couldn't even run a speed test. So i switched back to my really old router (hg635) and everything is working fine again. Not sure if there is a specific problem with my talk talk hub router but from time to time it exhibits odd behaviour in regrads to what devices can get a reliable connection and in the past the only way to resolve this is to reboot the router. I would say that the current software on the router seems very basic and it speaks volumes that the hg635 is working fine.
That is the latest release firmware. Your router has probably only been updated to this version over the last couple of weeks or days, have you noticed any difference very recently?
The slow connection speeds that all connected devices have been experiencing is pretty recent and may have coincided with a firmware upgrade. I'm still using my old hg635 router with no issues so the issue definitely lies with the hub router.
I would prefer to use the hub given it has a better range than thr hg635 and not to mention I had to purchase this router from talk talk . Let me know what else i can try. Is there a possibility something is wrong with my specific router and can it be replaced for a new one?
If you could connect the Wifi hub again I can try a change to your firmware to see if the helps. If you want to give this a try just let me know when you've swapped the routers.
Thr hub router is reconnected . I am working from home so if this could be done ASAP it would be appreciated.
The hub router appears to be working at the moment . Will monitor over the next few days to see if any connection issues persist.
Unfortunately it looks like the firmware upgrade you applied to my hub router has not resolved my issue. I logged on to my personal laptop this evening and my internet was crawling. I couldn't even run a broadband speed test ( see attached file ). As soon as i switched back to my hg635 router i could connect fine with no issues. I think there is something wrong with my hub router and i would like to get a replacement hub router sent out.
Further to my last post i started getting issues connecting to websites with the hg635. I restarted the hg635 and at the moment i can connect fine to websites. However i'm beginning to wonder if there is some issue with my line rather than the router. Can this be investigated?
