Router has poor range and running hot since house move

First Timer
Message 3 of 3



Since my house move a week ago, the performance of my fibre has been awful unless stood right next to the router (then it reaches roughly its target speeds). I have a 5-6 year old HG635 Super Router which used to be sat next to the majority of my devices. Now we have moved to a larger house and it is really struggling to transmit even 5-10 metres into other rooms even with a good central position in the house. It is also running pretty hot and has had to be restarted a few times already.


I've been with TalkTalk for getting on for 10 years and have been pleased with really reliable fibre performance and just signed a 2 year contract as part of the house move. I'd hate to be stuck with poor performance now!

Hi Greg


I'm sorry to hear this.


I have ordered you a replacement router, please allow 24-48hrs for this to arrive.


Let us know how the connection compares with this router.

The poor speeds may be unrelated to the router running hot. I think the first thing to do is get the HG635 replaced in case it has developed a fault. If it is no better with a replacement router, then I will need to know the speed recorded by the router when you log into it.


I have asked one of TalkTalk's OCEs to pick your thread up and consider replacing the router for you.
