Router connection drops every night!

Popular Poster
Message 26 of 26


My internet connection keeps dropping out every night after midnight between the hours if 0001 & 0300, the white light on my speed 5364 turns orange and flashes for upto an hour at worse case. This has also happened during the daytime but only now and again.

This has been happening since I have been with talktalk only, never had an issue with BT or sky.

I have seen what other people have posted about identical issues, followed all the same advice they were given,; turning if for 30mins etc, Changing the DNS, changes security settings on my account. Nothing works.!!. It's extremely annoying 😠

The phone line(voice) is perfectly fine when the problem starts, So the line is not an issue!


I want to know :-


1.Why this is happening?

2. Is this talktalk resetting my connection remotely if so stop it.

3. How to fix the issue permanently.

4. If it is hardware (router) related, when can it be replaced?


I feel a proper answer is required as this is currently not the service I signed up for, and going by several posts on this forum a lot of people want a resolution to this issue.

Hi Couchgeezer007,


How many telephone sockets do you have? Do you have anything connected to your telephone socket(s) in addition to your router?

Does your master socket have Test Socket?
