Wifi not working

I set up WiFi for my mum, has generally worked fine but she's now having issues. Download speed is virtually non existent. Can't watch streaming services properly, mobile phone will connect but very slow. Because I set it up it had to be in my name and I don't live with her.

Thanks, can you confirm that that account number is definitely your Mum's account number.

Hi,

 

If you could just add your Mum's account number to the private notes section of your community profile that will be fine

I set it up with another email I have.  When I tried to reset password wouldn't recognise email even though that's where the emails reminding me of bills goes

Can't seem to log in to account. I set it up with another email I have (that's where I get emails for bills). When I tried to reset password,  wouldn't recognise email address

If you (or she) can log into the 'My Account' site, then the phone number will be shown at the top of the screen.

I have the account number but she doesnt have a land line phone so I wouldn't know the number.  Where would I find it?

Hi Goodsuspect,

 

Can you add your Mum's TalkTalk landline telephone number to the private notes section of your community profile and we'll take a look at this for you

I'm not sure, I think that might be my Talk Talk account, not my mum's, as they are both attached to me I think

Hi Goodsuspect

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

 

Just to confirm, is the telephone number in your Community Profile the number for the line experiencing this fault?

Hi @Goodsuspect,

 

Are there any devices connected to the router 'wired', if so what is the speed like on those devices. This would help determine if the problem was with the speed to the router, or was a problem with the Wi-Fi signal in the home.

 

Is the router actually losing connection to the internet, or is it staying connected ok, but just slow.

 

If you go to the Service Centre what does it show for the estimated speed range and the measured speed. If she runs a speed test (ideally from both a wired and wireless device so that you can compare), how close are the speed test results to that 'measured speed'.

 

If she is only using wireless devices, is the connection better if she is very close to the router, but then gets a lot slower when she moves a little further away.

 

The Support Team here won't be around now until Monday, but they should be able to respond to this post early next week to help.
