I have been having problems with my new fibre install (upgrade from fast broadband), after about 4 webchats and an openreach visit a new router was despatched as the old one couldn't reach the speed. When received I still received poor speed but via information talk talk sent to me I managed to resolve this and get to the correct speed.
2 days later I had no WiFi it had vanished ....... I plugged in a ethernet cable and the internet was working.....but the router said WiFi disabled.....
I contacted talk talk via webchat the operative went through the usual process did not seem to understand the issue at all, despite me pointing our the issue many times, after 2 and a half hours I kept requesting to speak with a supervisor but he kept refusing....eventually I was put through to the supervisor....after another hour she agreed that the problem was with the router and not the line and has no eventually dispatched a new router (I have only had the existing one for 2 days), hopefully that will resolve the issue.
The supervisor has raised a formal complaint, however I wish to raise this matter in this forum as upon looking it seems that this is a know problem, but given the comments in her it seems normal that the webchat tech team do not understand this problem. Since upgrading to fiber I have spent at least 6 hours of my time I'm a webchat with the tech team, clearly this is a poor service and need addressing.
Luckily I haven't yet sent the older router back so I am using the old one for WiFi, hopefully the new router will fix the problem, and then I will send the 2 broken ones back.
Why do the tech team know nothing about a known issue in this fo
