OK, the latest position is as follows:
I set up the new replacement router (HG633) on Sunday and all was working fine, until exactly 12:00 midnight on Sunday when all connectivity dropped out, exactly as has been happening since I moved house and was "re-connected (early February 2019) - screen shot below
This is a different error message than before (see previous messages) but the result is the same, i.e. all of my devices laptop, iphone, TV and PS4 all lost their connectivity.
You can see from the screen shot the wi-fi icon has a "!" which when I hovered over said "no internet connection".
I then thought it might be worth reconnecting my original (Hub) router to see if this made any difference and this is the error message from that.....
Again, different error message from before but result the same. This time the wi-fi symbol has no error and says "connected" .......??
My logic is that the problem has to be due to the wi-fi as all my connected devices lose connection/browsing ability at the same time and for exactly 1 hour, at the same time, every week !
Then, at exactly 01:00am (Monday morning) everything miraculously starts working again and I have no other problems....
Any thoughts, anyone ?
Thanks for keeping us updated. Could I just confirm, when this happens at the same time every week, do you experience any issues with the voice service at the same time such as no dial tone? Do you have any wired devices connected during this time and do they also lose connection?
I now notice various other threads on this forum all with the same problem. In some ways this is good news as it proves this is not an issue my end 🙂
I hope Talktalk are urgently looking into this issue as it is clearly not an isolated occurrence.
Look forward to an update !
Thanks for your reply - answers as below:
"Could I just confirm, when this happens at the same time every week, do you experience any issues with the voice service at the same time such as no dial tone?" - I will have to check next Sunday at midnight......
"Do you have any wired devices connected during this time and do they also lose connection?" - No wired devices
Interesting to hear that I'm not alone in experiencing this exact problem as others around the country have reported the same issue. I trust you are collating all our responses as this is clearly the same issue.
Our Network Team have recommended arranging an engineer visit. Would you prefer to run the trace routes first to see if this identifies anything? They have also asked if it would be possible to connect a wired device to see if this also experiences the same issue?
Thanks, I'll run the trace routes first and post the results here (that ok ?).
Happy to have an engineer visit but is this feasible for midnight Sunday when the issue occurs ? Everything works normally at all other times..... ?
I currently don't have wired devices that can be used, however if you can send me some instructions I'll try to connect my laptop..... if I have the correct cables...... 🤔
Good Morning @OCE_Michelle
As promised here are my trace results, first one from Saturday evening when all was working fine.
and now from Sunday just past midnight when it all goes wrong !
I also took this screen shot on Sunday, not sure if its of any help but posting it anyway......
Look forward to your responses and may be even a suggestion of a solution....... ?
Thank and Regards
Sorry for the delay. I've just received an update from our Network Team to advise that they have made a change which they think should resolve this issue. Please let us know how the connection compares after Sunday.
Good Morning @OCE_Michelle
Just to let you know that the fix worked and I had uninterrupted browsing between midnight and 01:00am last night 😀
Do you have a more informative answer as to the cause of the issue ? "Network issue" doesn't really tell us much.... ?
I will now return the additional router you kindly sent me during testing.
Thanks for your assistance in solving this problem.
