Broadband keeps on dropping!

Broadband keeps on dropping after a few moments and has been intermittent for the past few days now (sometimes it maintains a connection for a few hours before dropping and becoming intermittent again). No problem with the phone line.

Re: Broadband keeps on dropping!

in order for the forum members to help please can you post the stats from your router (if hub enter in your browser) and if  HH5 then go to troubleshooting then helpdesk and if HH6/SH2 then advanced settings then technical log information . 

Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal


enter your phone number and post results  remember to delete number

Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
