Full fibre turning off every night for long periods

Go to solution

Only just upgraded to Fibre900 and the router is losing connection every night from around 1am and connection is not coming back until early morning - around 7am. Had to adjust my Wise thermostat as a result and all BT have given me is an EE mini hub that doesn’t connect to 4g where I live. Didn’t have these issues with copper and wondering what’s going on. I keep reading about other electrics going off triggering the router. The only thing I can link to this would be the street lights that go off around 1am.  Is it that a fibre connection could be vulnerable to this compared to copper? Thinking about going back to copper for more reliability.

is the hub still connected - blue light - just no internet?  are all lights on the ONT on and green?

REIN/SHINE issues do not affect FTTP , so that cannot be your problem .

If you lose your  ‘connection’ , what is the status of the ONT during this period , does the LOS ( loss of signal ) light come on , or does the PON light remain on and steady ( not flashing ) if it does then there is no problem with the Openreach FTTP network…., what is the status of the lights on the SH2 router during this outage , assuming you use the SH2 and not some third party router you supplied yourself

have you performed a factory reset of the SH2  ?

All sorted! Router was relocated when fibre installed and plugged into an extension lead tucked under TV unit. Guess what? Only found a Tapo Wi-Fi plug which is switching everything off!!!!!
