Eero and WiFi Hub not connecting

Hi,

 

I got an update to full fibre and an engineer came on Monday 17 June to install it. An eero device was sent to my home and while the engineer was here he tried to set it up himself, 3 hours later he was unable to and in his attempt to reconnect to the old WiFi hub to still have internet while i seek a resolution with the eero device, somehow messed up the old connection too. Nevertheless, i have been without internet since Monday 17 June, i work from home and internet is crucial for me. I was on and off the chat and phone calls with talktalk team members but nothing. After spending hours in a chat and on the phone on Tuesday, i was told that a new WiFi Hub will be delivered to me, that will take 2-3 working days, i received the hub yesterday but surprise-surprise, still not working. When the engineer was trying to install the eero hub on Monday, an error on the app popped up "external IP address" with red exclamation mark next to it. i tried to explain this to the guy but he wouldn't listen, tried to explain this to talktalk chat and on the phone, but it was very obvious that nobody had any idea to what they are doing or even what that means. 

 

Either way, now i have an eero and a wifi hub and no internet. I have asked for an engineer, but was told that there is no problem on their end and that the problem is on my end, regardless of where the problem is, an engineer should still be sent to sort out this mess.

 

Now that I have a new black WiFi Hub I would rather use this to connect to the internet.

 

Please help.

Hi Chris, no, nobody contacted me, I had to chase them.

 

An engineer is at the property right now trying to fix the issue. 

 

Is it possible to check if the profile was set correctly?

How much longer do I have to wait? This is ridiculous - I don't have internet since Monday

HI GrigC

 

I've checked and the team have confirmed that they will be contacting you at some point today, they just can't give me a specific time at the moment sorry.

Hi Debbie,

Hi @GrigC 

 

I'm really sorry to hear this.

 

Was this a CF or Openreach install?

 

Please can you add your name and TalkTalk account number to your Community Profile, we can then take a look at this for you.

 

Thanks
