I've been with TalkTalk for some months, but since Saturday my internet connection has been dreadful, dropping out every few minutes.
I can see now that the TalkTalk WiFi Hub keeps dropping the connection, as the light on the front of the hub keeps going from steady white (which indicates good connection) to blinking orange (which indicates connection problem) to blinking white and orange (as connection is being reestablished) to steady white (back to good connection) but then this only lasts for a minute, before it goes back to blinking orange (connection problem).
I don't know whether this indicates a faulty hub, or faulty service, but it is highly annoying.
If anyone has any tips, please advise!
For reference, I'm on TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub version SG4K10002600t.
Hi big welcome to the community your post has been flagged for assistance and you should hear during the day. It is worthwhile trying a router reboot which can frequently solve problems.
Thank you. I have already tried the following steps:
1. Hub reboot quick (power off for 20 seconds). No improvement.
2. Hub reboot long (power off for 20 minutes). Internet was stable for about 10 minutes but then the problem started re-occurring regularly, i.e. every 5 minutes.
I believe the problem must exist at the hub, or in the service to the hub, as the light on the front indicates connection failures.
Hi big, thanks for trying, it helps the OCE team rule out things.
I'm detecting a bridgetap and a fault on the copper line.
There are high retrains (drops) also showing.
This will need an engineer.
I'll drop you a PM with the info required.
