My pc is connected by cat 6A cable into my TalkTalk wi fi hub. Over the last 6 months or so I have been getting irregular internet disconnections that do not affect my wireless devices. Every time this happens I turn the router off and back on again. This usually works. However occasionally after turning the router off it wont turn back on again immediately, it takes several attempts over a period of about 30 seconds before the orange light starts flashing.
I have tried updating the ethernet driver and flushed the DNS cache, but the problem continues. My hub is running software version SG4K10002816t.
On average I go through this procedure about twice a week.
What else can I try to fix this?
Any suggestions much appeciated.

I have just renewed my contract and am being told to expect a new Wifi Hub. As the one you arranged for me to receive in October works fine, is there any point in this upgrade? Is it a more capable unit?
If it is too late to stop the replacement presumably the old one will be redeployed?

Just wanted to let you know that I have had the replacement router fired up for the last 10 days or so and I havent had a problem since, so problem solved! Wonderful!
Thanks to you and your colleagues for your help.

Yes please Michelle, it has been behaving erratically for a while. We lost our phone line totally a few weeks ago, which Openreach eventually fixed, but the wired network problem pre-dated this and continues today. So a 'test' router would seem very sensible.

I'm sorry for the delay. The router currently has the latest version of firmware and I've run a test on the line which hasn't detected a fault. Would you like us to send a replacement router for testing purposes to rule this out?

Since posting the original issue I returned to the pc to find the system tray saying the pc was "not connected" and the hub light was out. I turned the hub off and then back on again and the connection was resumed.

Hi @jfeat ,
The staff won't be around now until Monday, but they should be able to respond to this post early next week to help.
If they think your router may be developing a fault then they may be able to send you a replacement.
Have you tried plugging the ethernet cable into a different port on the back of the router, just to see if that makes any difference.
