Hi madison151,

 

Are you still experiencing a problem with this? Have you tested with a different ethernet cable?

Hi Madison151,

 

So I can look into this for you please can you update your forum profile to include your name and TalkTalk telephone number. To do this go into "my settings" then "personal information" then add your details.

 

Could you also please complete this Contact form and enter your Community username in the Twitter username field. Could you please enter "Forum" prior to your username. Once you submit the form, you will receive a 12 digit reference number, please post this into this thread.


Please do not post any personal information on the forum.

 

Thanks
