Line dropping out

Hi,

Every day at certain times my line completely drops out and resets. It's becoming quite an issue as I use the internet for work and communications. 

 

I have tried keeping it connected to the test socket under the faceplate but that has not seemed to solve the issue.

I also changed the filter and the micro filter. 

 

I am using the TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub version SG4K10001400t.

 

I am unsure as to why this is occuring, could someone please help me in fixing this?

Any further information that is needed please do let me know. 

 

Currently internet is connected directly to the test socket for any tests you may need to perform.

 

The logs are full with errors such as this:

Hi Patacoco 

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

 

I've completed a line test which has detected a possible fault.

 

Is your landline service working ok when making calls?

 

Thanks

 

Debbie

Yes, I can make and receive calls just fine.

An engineer came tonight, was not aware I had one booked. I am thankful he did. He ran some tests on the line. Hopefully the problem has been solved or is being looked in to.

Community Team

Hi Patacoco,

 

Just to confirm, is your connection still dropping at the moment?

 

Thanks

Hi Patacoco,

 

I'm sorry to hear this. I've passed the intermittent connection over to our Network Team now. If you don't hear back by the end of today then please can you bump your thread and we can re-check for an update for you.

 

Thanks

Hi Patacoco,

 

The next step will be to arrange an engineer visit so I've sent you a Private Message to confirm some details.

 

Please do not post any personal information on the Community, reply via Private Message (PM) only.

 

Thanks

Is this necessary? I already had an openreach engineer come out and run tests. I do not want a talk talk engineer to come out to not find a problem and then be charged for no reason at all.. There is a new openreach socket on the house which got replaced when engineer came out. 

 

Would it be possible to send a new talk talk wifi hub to rule out potential fault with it?

Community Team

Hi Patacoco,

 

I've ordered you another router to test with, should be with you within a couple of working days but please allow up to 5 working days for delivery 


Thanks

Chris

Sadly the new router has not solved the issue.. 

 I read on other posts with the same issue, I am not meant to be on Vlan 36.

If this is the problem? I did check in the settings and I'm set to 101, so maybe something is confusing it?

Hi Patacoco,

 

Thanks for testing this. Just to confirm, do any of the lights change on the router when the connection drops as the connection does look stable for almost 6 days. Is this also affecting wired devices?

 

Thanks

Yes it goes and flashes Amber for 10-15 seconds. Then it reconnects back to the Internet(white and Amber). 

 

Yes affects wired device. My desktop is wired directly so I notice it right away.

BTOR have been and examined the connections in the flat and where the lines come in for the flats. Apparently they replaced an old connection outside. Hopefully this has solved the intermittent issue. :rockfingers:

Wait and see, I'll let you all know in a couple days.
