Internet dropping when its raining

Please can someone get in touch with me as my internet is dropping as soon as one drop of rain falls from the sky. Its hugely inconvenient, ive tried to troubleshoot as much as i can - nothing has worked. Only happens when it rains - about 2 minutes of outage - then it reconnects and immediately disconnects and i have to connect again. 

This has been happening since I have been using BT Broadband - have tried to get in contact before but wait times are ridiculous

Can you check in Troubleshooting/Helpdesk on the web interface at http://192.168.1.254 or http://bthomehub.home.

 

Then post the router stats please as it may be noise on the line. 

 

Could you also dial 17070 from your landline phone (corded is best) then option 2 for a quiet line test.

Have you reported the fault? Nothing will get fixed without an engineer visit.

Re: Internet dropping when its raining

@dombullion  The router stats would prove nothing. There is an obvious case of water ingress when it rains so a competant engineer should check each joint from premisis to DP.
