Thanks done. Also getting a lot of red lights for internet on router lately.

Community Team

Hi Shanemorris,

 

Thanks. I've run a test on the line which has detected a potential fault and the connection does look very unstable. Just to confirm, are you experiencing any issues with the voice service such as noise on the line or no dial tone? Does your master socket also have a test socket?

 

Thanks

Thanks yes we have a master socket, the line works but has some feint crackling. 

Community Team

Hi Shanemorris

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Noise on the line can affect the broadband connection so we have to investigate this first.

 

is this noise still present if you test with a corded handset at the test socket, with the router removed from the line?

 

Thanks

thanks, we don't have a corded handset, today's internet connection has been particularly bad more off than on

Hi Shanemorris

 

Would it be possible to test your phone on a different line to see if the line is then clear? (this will rule out any possible issues with the handset)

 

Thanks

Community Team

Hi Shanemorris

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Just to confirm, did you experience the same level of noise? (this would indicate a possible fault with the cordless phone)

 

Please can you post a photo of your master socket?

 

Thanks

Noise on line similar but minimal to be honest think that’s normal, have posted pics of socket, the router is connected off a wire from the top of the socket in living room this socket is in hall.3BE62954-C66B-466A-BBA6-E18FED5F37EF.jpegA1EA2AA2-0CEF-4932-809C-B41530876CDB.jpeg

Community Team

Hi Shanemorris

 

Thanks for posting the photos. Please can you connect the router and filter directly at the test socket (face plate removed) so we can run another line test in this set up?

 

Thanks

Community Team

Hi Shanemorris

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I've run another line test which is still detecting a possible fault. I have escalated this over to our Network Team for investigation and I will post back on this thread as soon as I receive further information.

 

Thanks

Hi Shanemorris

 

This fault has now been passed to a BT Openreach line engineer to investigate.. We should receive further updates within the next 48hrs.

 

Thanks

Hi Debbie engineer came last week and fixed the fault, we were getting 30 download and 6 upload which compares to the 15 download and 0.7 upload we were getting. All was fine butnow I’m getting a max of 5 download and 6 upload which is frustrating as can’t understand why now worse than was before?

Community Team

Hi Shanemorris

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

 

I've completed a further line test which is showing a possible fault. Is the router still in the same set up as when the engineer came last week? 

 

Is the landline service working ok?

 

Thanks
