Internet drops several times everyday

Go to solution
This is happening from a long time.
I'm a tenant of a share house and we have BT Infinity 2. We use to have 60/20 but lately we had 15/3 and sometimes internet drops.
So I contacted BT by chat and an engineer came last Saturday. He changed a socket because the one we had it was very old. So after that he asked me to do a speedtest and we had 50/20. After one hour internet starts to drop from that day till today I don't know how many times happened ( orange led and the B led orange as well).

I read some posts in here and people found a solution changing the router so I don't know. I hope someone can help me

Welcome to this user forum.

Is there any noise on your phone calls? Dial 17070 and select option 2, there should be no noise between the announcements.

A noisy phone line is the most common cause of disconnections. This cannot normally be detected by the BT line test.

Are you sure as the announcement normally only says quiet line test. Did you use a corded phone

have you tried using test socket with a filter?

XNormally with cordless phone you get a dull hum on quiet line test

are you using test socket with a filter to see if that helps

If it starts to drop again then try test socket by removing fron of 5c and test socket is now visible
