Just to let you know the reason I haven't posted the results is because although the hub shows a blue light the connection is so bad it won't even connect to the website to get the information. I will post it should I ever get a good enough connection.

Can you connect to the home hub using an Ethernet connected device?

Can you see this link IP Check

Re: Really bad broadband

Update. Engineer has been but as it was logged as a line problem (even though I clearly told them it wasn't) he could do what he needed to. Apparently reason I am getting 0.5mbs is that that is what it has been capped at. Are BT having a laugh capping a speed so low as to be useless?? Now need to try and get it reset. More phone calls needed 🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁

Hi,

Sounds similar to my past, i hope, problems.

Is your internet up to posting the pictures/information Keith_Beddoe requested?

If not can you do a www. speedtest.net and post your ping, download and upload?

It keeps telling me the screenshot is too big to load.  Download = 0.21, ping 30ms and no upload.  Spoke to BT and all they would do is send yet another engineer out.  I could cry with frustration.

Been there done that. I was thinking of shooting my self.
The screen shot I think needs to be less than 120kb to upload suss fully try reducing the size if you can. I do all mine less tan 100kb.

As for your problems. What device, operating system , browser are you using?

Are you wireless or cabled to router?

If you get screen shot thing working can you also upload router information page?

Just a thought,


You are suffering from a broadband outage. This broadband outage has been going on for more than two working days. Under new rules you are entitled to £8 per day of outage after 2 working days automatically because your broadband is below 'agreed' limits.

When you reported your 'broadband fault' you may have mentioned the hiss on your line as well.

If you did this , under the new rules, this may well be interpreted as a noisy line which does not require £8/5/day compensation. A telephone engineer will be dispatched to not fix your broadband.

The two working day working clock will then be reset and back to square one.

This has happened to me twice since the first of April, no joke.

Check your bt account for active/resolved complaints.

If it looks anything like mine bellow then there taking the Micheal.

I hope this helps. All the best. 26 engineers later my broadband is finally fixed?
