I am hoping that I can get a fix or a reply from BT to fix an internet upload problem. It is a problem that is not unique and I have found several posts on this. The problem occurs when uploading large files the internet will drop out. The internet does eventually reconnect again but then it continues to randomly drop out till the upload is finished. This makes the internet unusable while uploading any files. It appears to be caused by large files that try to upload faster than my connection or hub will allow, a buffering problem. If I reduce the upload speed my problem is resolved. I don't want to rely on software to reduce my upload speed as I believe the hub should be able to manage this. I have had this problem since I have had fibre to my house (FTP) and engineers have tested my line and it showed no problems and they came to the conclusion it was my hub so issued a new one. The problem still occurs.
However, I then came across these 4 posts on this forum (One, Two, Three, Four) all of which were having the same problem as me, but were manged to be helped by a moderator on the forum. I was hoping I could get the same solution that these people did to fix their internet. It looks like there is a setting that can be changed remotely by BT but I have not found what it is. I hope this forum and post will resolve this for me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solutions I have seen for this are
1) Buy a new hub - not BTs
The problem with this solution is BT will only support you if you use their hardware and also there appears to be a setting that will fix there hubs (see below)
2) Other forums I have linked have had an engineer remote in to change a setting (not sure if on the hub or at BT's end) but it has fixed the problem I am hoping BT will do this for me. I will be ringing them again and hoping that this forum will cut out all the usual prechecks I have been through before!
I'm sorry you're experiencing issues with your connection dropping when uploading. I'll be able to get this investigated by the Hub Team. Please can you send me in your details using the "Contact The Mods" link found in my profile?
