I recently had a BT line installed (the 17th Dec) as we were originally with Virgin and were suffering consistent constant packet loss. After about a year of 2 and froing with Virgin I gave up and got a FFTC line with BT as I work from home and the constant packet loss was unacceptable. Happy to report that so far I've had no packet loss issues with BT. However there is one weird thing happening.
So far every day once a day at random times the Smart hub appears to reboot itself? so far it's done it at around
I am running a ping as part of my proof for Virgin that the issue is them and in the ping I see it goes from replying fine to general failure for about 25-45 seconds then comes back and is fine after that? Unfortunately the router is in another room to me so I can't see the lights but it's like it reboots itself. Does anyone know why this is or has had this on there own one?

welcome to the BT community forum where customers help customers and only BT employees are the forum mods
in order for the forum members to help please can you post the stats from your router enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser 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 https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
Hi, thought that might be the case. I don't think my Phone line has moved to being "managed" by BT yet as it was originally Virgin so I take it I'm best waiting until that's done?
If your Internet is working then you must have a phone line otherwise you would not have broadband
Try quiet line and see what number is repeated
If you are porting your phone number was it originally issued by virgin or BT or another ISP
@imjolly they may not have a voice service, you can get bb only now
JUST from the OP comment about BT managing his phone line suggested a phone connection
I have no idea about the line, I think the phone line is BT but I don't have a corded phone. Anyway the rebooting went away for 3 days or so but today it has happened 8 or 9 times throughout. I've found it in the log
It's been the same message each time, I've swapped the cable to the router the port it was plugged into on the router and restarted the router but it's doing the same thing.
I've raised a fault with BT to see what they say
No worries. I was connected directly to the hub, but I connected an old TP-Link switch last night as I read it could be due too something called Ethernet link pulse timing errors. So it's now hub, into switch into My PC. I can't see any way to attach the log.
What is it you want to see?
Please could you post your connection stats? If you are using the BT Smart hub you can get your connection stats by, Opening a new web browser on your connected device and typing 192.168.1.254 or bthomehub.home into the address bar. This will open the Hub Manager. Click ‘Advanced Settings’ and then ‘Technical log’.
