I have Fibre 65 (and the router that comes with it). For a while now my router has not shown the white light on the front however the majority of the time it has not affected the performance apart from the very occasional need to reboot (the red light does come on when first switched on, just white light not working once it is fully up and running).
However this last couple of weeks it had been occasionally a bit temperamental (but bearable) until this evening I had to reboot twice in quick succession before it would let me have internet. This is both WiFi and wired connections dropping out, phone/laptop (WiFi) and TV (wired) all lost connection at the same time.
Nothing has changed in my set up.

Hi yes, I plugged back into the normal socket the other day. It was on the go slow for a short while the other morning whilst trying to work from home then sorted itself out. and I had it drop out for a minute whilst still on the test socket during a Teams call last Friday. Other than those 2 moments it has been OK.

Thanks for your reply.
If the connection has remained stable with the router at the test socket then this would indicate a potential issue with the face plate or internal wiring.
Would it be ok to keep the router connected at the test socket?

Thanks for confirming. Would it be possible to keep the router connected to the test socket for 48hrs just to see how the stability compares in this set up?

Sorry I didn't want to do this whilst I was working. It is now plugged into test socket and seems to be working.
Connection has been stable today by the way. Problem is intermittent, it will be really well behaved for a while and then other times like last night it will be moody.

Thanks for the update. This socket should have a test socket behind the lower half of the faceplate. Would it be possible to gently remove the lower faceplate (there may be wires connected behind so we advise doing this carefully) and connect the microfilter, router and phone directly at the test socket please?

Yes voice service all clear, router is plugged into the main socket. I don't know if it contains a test socket, part of the face plate looks like it unscrews with a screwdriver so I maybe.

I'm sorry to hear this. I've run a line test which is clear, however I can see a few re-connections on the line. Is the voice service ok with no noise on the line? Does your main socket also have a test socket please?
