Hi, have stumbled across this forum in an attempt to understand (and rectify!) why our HH5 keeps losing DSL connection at least six or seven times each day, most recently around 10:40 this morning. It reconnects after a minute or two, funnily enough if I pick up the phone to call BT then it seems to reconnect more quickly, though that might be my cynicism talking. It is incredibly annoying! I have visions of little old ladies sat at a switchboard trying to manage too many users for the available lines, so they randomly disconnect one and see if anyone complains ...
Having read other threads I've tried the quiet line test, there's no noise. But many of the "solved" threads seem to go offline to private messaging, which doesn't help those of us in the same predicament.
Can anybody point me in the right direction? If you need to know 'stuff' in order to help, point me in the direction of what's needed, thanks.
Can to post the conection stats from the hub, troubleshooting/helpdesk.
Connect to the test socket with filter to rule out a problem with faceplate or internal wiring and see if it stabalises.
Ensure no extentions (if any work).

Yes if you remove the faceplate the test socket will be revealed. You will need a filter to connect to it though.
Your connection stats look good, is it just wireless that's dropping or does it also happen on wired connections?
I'll have to get a filter, so don't wait for me - I may not respond for a couple of days!
Single wired connection also drops, it's not just loss of wireless. Next time it drops I'll dash to the phone and do a quiet line test at that exact moment, see if it's intermittent noise.
Appreciate your help on this, thanks.
