New Speed worse up-time

Hi there,

 

BT recently upped our speed on our line from 30 to 50mbs, the new speed is great but the broadband connection keeps on dropping!  I used to be able to play hour of online gaming before with no issues but now it may drop 2-3 time an hour but then be stable for an hour or two and then drop again.

 

I called BT but the guy on the otherside of the line just wanted to sell me a new contract and get a new HH5 (I currently run a HH5)  he said he ran diagnostics and it showed that the hub is faulty... call me sinical but I dont think that is the problem.

 

Anyone experienced anything like this?  I have reset my hub, powered it off for 5 minutes and restarted, checked physical connections but nothing seems to have solved the problem.  Any Ideas?

 

Thanks for your help

Re: New Speed worse up-time

if you have a HH5 can you go to hub manager then trobleshooting then helpdesk and post 1-12

 

 

 

can you run btspeedtester and when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post results  must be done with wired connection  btspeedtester

 

 are you using test socket with a filter to eliminate your setup and internal wiring

 

can you enter your phone number and post results  remember to delete number wholesale FTTC check

 

 

 

try quiet line test   dial 17070 option 2  should be quiet and best with corded phone

Re: New Speed worse up-time

You really need to try quiet line test as a poor /noisy line can cause problems with your broadband and if that is due to your setup or extension wiring then you will end up getting charged £129.99 for engineer visit - even borrowing phone just to try or invest £5 and buy one from argos

Re: New Speed worse up-time

Hey,

 

So this afternoon it disconnected again and I ran downstairs to look at the Hub, I stood there for 5 minutes watchign it cycle through the following 'light sequence'

 

Green

Flashing Green

Blue

Flashing orange

Orange

Orange with the little no Broadband icon

Green

Flashing green

..... etc

 

it did the above cycle three times before showing a solid blue with up time, so maybe it is the hub and not the line....
