Hi Gazzza


Thanks for your reply.


The firmware on the router should automatically update.


I've checked and your router firmware has updated to the latest version.


How has the connection been?

Hi Gazzza


The router is on its way, please allow 24-48hrs for this to arrive.


Let us know how the connection compares with this router.

Hi Gazzza


Would you like me to send a different router for testing to see how the connection compares?

Hi Gazzza,


Thank you. I've run a test on the line which hasn't detected a fault and the connection looks stable for 4 days. Just to confirm, are you currently connected wireless when the connection is dropping?

thank you yes used all the new cables the socket is one of the new ones in stalled a couple of months ago by bt so dont need filter phone works fine done the service check loads of times and shows no fault and every thing is running ok according to that . but yet still keeps cutting off we have just left another service provider we had that 24 months and may be got this happen four or 5 times  in that time


Message 34 of 37

Can you ensure that you have used the new cables and microfilter (if required) supplied with your router to connect your router to the phone socket.


It would be worth going to the Service Centre to do a test on your phone line, this will indicate if there is currently a fault on your line. You can also access this from the ‘My Account’ site.


Also, if you have a landline phone can you check to see if that is working normally (i.e. you have a clear dial tone and no noise on the line).


If your master phone socket has a test socket then you could also try the router in there, that would then eliminate any of the phone wiring in your home as being a possible cause of the problem.


Staff will hopefully be able to respond early next week to help.

Hi @Gazzza,


Do you know if the problem is with the router losing its connection to the internet (in which case a light on your router which is normally constantly lit will change colour or flash), or is it that you are losing Wi-Fi connection between your device(s) and your router (in which case the light(s) on the router will just carry on looking normal).


Do you have any ‘wired’ devices, do they also lose connection ?


For one of the TalkTalk staff on this community to be able to look into this you will need to update your community profile to include your name, landline telephone number that your TalkTalk service is provided on & an alternative contact number. This will allow them to identify you, and they will then be able to help.


Don't post any personal details in this thread, just add them to your community profile.


The staff here won't be around now until Monday, but they should be able to respond to this post early next week to help.
