Slow speeds and dropping internet

First Timer
Message 7 of 7

Good morning,

We have recently upgraded to talktalk fibre. We used to get roughly 12mb, and after the fibre upgrade we get...12mb, and we signed a new 18 month contract to receive the upgrade. It says we should receive 21mb but we have never got anywhere near.

But the main issue is our internet cuts out, multiple times a day and for a few minutes at a time. You could be reading a website on the phone, and all of a sudden an exclamation mark appears to say WiFi is still connected, but no internet. This happens to all devices in the house.

I have looked at the router logs but if I'm honest I don't really know what I'm looking for. Is there anyone that knows anything I can try? The broadband checker detects no issues,but this is on going and is very frustrating, considering I have just signed an 18 month contract for a service I am not receiving.

Many thanks in advance

Hi Steve,


Thanks for the confirming. Would it be possible to test wired so we can confirm if this is related to the wireless? We can then offer more advice on this.

Hi Debbie,
We are connected wirelessly - the test we completed was wireless but with all devices not running/streaming (we can't stream anything from demand services as the connection drops every few minutes).

Hi steve,


Can I just confirm, when the throughput speeds are low and dropping with the new router connected, are you connected wired or wireless?

Hi Debbie,
Thanks for your reply and apologies for not getting back sooner, I haven't been at home. On the router settings it is showing that we have 21mb, but the reality is exactly what I have posted above.
The disconnections you saw was us trying our old router, which was alot more stable and gave us 16mb speeds. We then plugged the new fibre router back in and we instantly dropped back down to 12mb and constant drop outs, so I can only assume this is a router issue.
Is there any way of testing the router itself from your end?
Many thanks

Hi steveray_uk


I'm really sorry to hear this.


I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults and the line is in sync at 21.1mb.


I can see some re connections on the line but it appears to have remained stable since 23/08. When did you last experience a drop in connection?
