Hi there, me and my family have been having this issue for many weeks now, i feel like ive tried everything - nothing works. As you can see above this is an example of what were dealing with - i can confirm this is a periodic drop as there was another drop shortly after, although strangely a fifth one didnt happen for 25 minutes. This all started happening from the moment it was reset (with pin to the back).
I am using BT home Hub 4, I have called BTs mumbai office soo many times, the closest I came to solving this was changing the wireless channel - this still didnt work. We have many devices connected to the hub - tablets computer phones.
At the time of the drops:
|2.4 GHz Wireless:||Sue-pc||00:1c:26:86:56:ac||192.168.1.68|
|5 GHz Wireless:||COM-MID1||60:02:b4:ae:9c:eb||192.168.1.83|
|Ethernet:||No devices detected|
|USB:||No devices detected|
In terms of what colour the hub turns when dropping - i believe it flashes orange although not 100% certain.
I even resorted to buying a new router - this didnt make it past the automatic setup phase. It kept telling me to i need to turn off the modem - which as far as I know I dont have!
Im really really coming to the end of my tether with this, please someone help! If you need any more information ill do my best. Thanks.
From the information posted all the devices are connected wireless. I would turn off smart wireless and select the channels manually. I would also split the 2.4 and 5ghz networks by say adding a 5 to 5ghz channel and uou can use same password fir both. Many devices don't like the 2 networks combineD
you can also use inssider to chrck free channels.
you can try downloading inssider3 (istumbler if MAC) and then run it. This will show the broadcasting networks round about you and their channels including your own. If you then enter your router and change your wireless channel to a free or less congested channel.
DL speed 4.14
I yield the same results using the test socket or not. We also had a booster put on which seems to make no difference.
These speeds are fine, when the connection hasnt dropped of course.

Thanks for the replys so far, ive downloaded netspot as it was the only free one I could find.
Ive checked the other wireless networks and changed the channels of both 2.4gz and 5 gz. to channels not being used Ill get back to you on how it goes.
What did you use to capture that graph of performance? I could do with somehting running to log my conenctions. I'm pretty sure my problem is the same
