Ive been in touch over the phone and via live chat several times attempting to deal with the issue im having so this is really a last hope. Pretty much every day my internet connection drops alot of times for short periods, a few days ago i kept track of all the times it died and came back and noted 14 times (that i was aware of). We had an Open Reach engineer come out and he said there was nothing wrong from his tests and every time i contact TalkTalk they say the same, trouble is by the time i can contact anyone after a disconnect the service is back until the next time. Its frustrating having upgraded to Fibre and getting such better speeds that i still have this issue which has plagued my internet connection for months now.

I'm sorry to hear this. Do you have an alternative router that you could test with? If not then please let us know and we can arrange to send a replacement router for testing purposes.

So far today my connection has dropped at 14:35 14:45 17:24 20:16 and now at 22:51. All immediate with no issues before hand and all back and working within a minute of it occuring.

I have exactly the same problem. Hours of chat to support staff, who often just disconnect when they run out of answers; house and devices thoroughly checked out by BT Openreach engineer, no fault found; line checks, equipment checks and connectivity checks up the ying yang. All to no avail. Download speed is around 20mbps. This is not the problem. It's the constant interruptions in service, which don't appear to be trackable by TalkTalk's software. During the course of trying to watch something on, say Netflix, over wired ethernet it will typically cut out 4-5 times an hour. For up to 2-3 minutes at a time. Sometimes you can resume. At other times, you have to back out and re-start the app. Usually the case with the BBC iplayer. TalkTalk used to blame this on non-existent engineering work.
I'd be interested to see whether you get any answers, as by a quick search on this site, which I joined today, many other people are in the same boat.

Thanks for confirming. I've re-checked the connection stats and the connection looks stable for just over 3 days. Just to confirm, when did you last experience a drop in connection?

There is no change in colour of the lights but the last 4 flash green in unison while the connection wont work and once it returns the lights go back to their usual patern. Only 1 device (sky box) is connected via ethernet the rest are all wireless.

I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing problems with your service. I've taken a look at your connection stats and I can see 3 or 4 reconnections over the last week or so but nothing like as many as the number you're reporting.
Do the lights change on your router when the connections appears to drop?
Are the devices affected all connected by wifi to your router? Do you have any devices connected to your router by Ethernet cable
