So, I have been having Ethernet Dropouts randomly recently (since about July). I have tried lots of things like changing ports, resetting the modem etc. It still drops out. It appears to be when I play games but, because the broadband is quick as lightning it only disconnects for around 10s.
I have bought myself a Cat Cable checker and all seems okay coming from the Hub to the PC (or at least the lights all turn green in sequence. However, I tried the cable coming out of the box in the wall and the 1-8 lights lit up but the G light didn't. I noticed that the cable looks like the wires inside the connector might be a bit longer than they should be (stretched maybe).
So, does anybody know what cable the grey one from the FTTP box to the Router is? It's probably cat 5e but I don't want to buy one if it's like Cat 8 or something and I lose my internet. Also, should the G light on the Cat Cable checker illuminate or is that for higher Cat cables?
Oh and I have a Cat 6 cable (because it was flat) and it's about 2 years old. My Wi-Fi isn't affected either. It maybe that the loss is too short to disconnect the children's wi-fi usage lol 🙂
