Broadband / wifi dropping on a daily basis

Go to solution

Hi - any advice would be appreciated.  

I've now been working from home for about 10 weeks and, I can imagine, the strain on the network will cause some problems.  However, I'm now have a problem on nearly a daily basis between 2pm and 3.30pm BST whereby my router seems to be restarting.  This peaked yesterday when, on a very important video call, it occurred 5 times, to the point that I had to abandon the call and revert to a telephone call - not helpful when I was presenting information!

Online chat keeps popping up but then saying its unavailable and unfortunately I can't call today due to the regularity of my meetings.  

As I don't have a problem now, I can't give any details and obviously, when it goes down, I can't connect with people about it.

Any advice please?

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 (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser) and if  HH5 then go to troubleshooting then helpdesk and if HH6/SH2 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

You mean these:

Connection statusConnected
Connection typeFibre Broadband (VDSL)
Firmware versionv0.17.01.12301-BT (Mon Dec 30 19:16:29 2019)
Serial number1.9E+09
Downstream sync speed22.4 Mbps
Upstream sync speed10.0 Mbps
Network uptime0 days 11 Hours 35 Mins 54 Secs
System uptime13 days 15 Hours 42 Mins 44 Secs
BT Wi-fi statusActive

 Don't these only show what's occurring now?  presuming therefore that I should be capturing them as the problem irregularly occurs.

are you on fibre 1 or 2  looks like fibre 2?

can you check for dial tone and quiet line test?

can you post the noise margin figures from your stats

connection time is only 11 hrs was that router dropping connection or manual reset?

Thanks - just in a meeting so will test line when I can.

The connection time was because the router dropped its connection (which is the issue).  That was the last, of 5, times it dropped within the hour and then nothing since.

Router disconnected right on que again at 3.00pm (thankfully as I was just finishing my meeting) but this time instead of the error message showing the halo with an orange glow, it showed a "flashing" one and offered to restart for me (which I took).  Stats remain the same as before:

VDSL Range A (Clean)

High: 80

Low: 57.9  

VDSL Range B (Impacted)

High:78.8

Low: 55  

When I check the status, I can now see that the firmware has been updated to today and, as expected, both the Network and System uptime messages stand at 18 minutes and 20 minutes respectively.

Presume I give the firmware update to give it a chance to have fixed any issue?

new firmware may help

it certainly sounds something local maybe even in your home that is causing interference especially if router is dropping about same time every day - something starting or switching on/off

Thanks - will keep monitoring but unfortunately, I have had another instance since my last message.  I think I'll get my hands dirty to ensure I've not got a loose cable or something (although why it would be roughly the same time each day is beyond me).
