Internet connection drops and home hub constantly resets during rain.
I am in rented accomodation and our net connection keeps dropping when the weather is bad. We have had engineers out many times who have stated hat there is no issue with the lines. Every time it rains the net drops and the home hub constanly resets itself.
I am now of the opinion that they are talking rubbish.
We have a home hub 5 on BT infinity. I have attempted using an infinity modem I had as a troubleshooting step but it has made no difference.
What information do you all need and what further steps should I take?
I think @john46 is on the right rack here. If you can hear noise on the quiet line test report it straight away to 151 who should be able to arrange a line engineer appointment for you. If you get stuck post back and we'll lend a hand.
Re: Internet connection drops and home hub constantly resets during rain.
Thank you for the responses. I've tested the line when the weather is poor but I still can't hear any noise or crackling. One of my housemates is a former telecoms engineer who theorizes that water ingress has oxidized the wires, or is causing a short; but beyond that I am a little stuck. I do have spare routers I could use as a troubleshooting step.
