Many thank for responding I will complete your contact form as soon as I can.
Just to let you know I have been on to faults for 79 minutes. The last 53 minutes speaking to a very responsive Pete in Belfast. He said he has been unable to find any faults on the line.
He is going to ring me ASAP after 14:00 on Thursday.
I will let you decide whether to wait until after he rings or whether to institute your checks straight away.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with me today.
I have had a look at your connection and your connection is dropping once a day, if even that. There are periods where the connection would not drop out for 3-4 days. This isn't a fault condition as your sync has remained consistent.
As agreed, if you do have problems with frequent disconnections and your speed is starting to suffer feel free to post back and we'll look at it again.
Many thanks for your investigation and reply, even though the result was disappointing.
Thanks for your help but as you can see from Robbies reply the number of disconnections are not considered a fault and therefore BT will take no action (e.g. engineer visit, replacement hub). Just might consider switching to SKY.
Always got to keep trying until someone says that is far as we can/will go to improve your connection. Until you do that you are always in doubt whether you get connection stability improved
Due the constant disconnections, and BT's reluctance to supply another router I have thought again about buying a third party router.
Because of the 10 seconds lag to open pages I have not got the patience to go searching but hopefully you can remind me of the one you recommended, and any other similar contenders, please ?
The one I use and recommend, is TP-Link TD-W9970, its very stable, and gets good feedback on this forum. You may find one locally if you have an Argos store its about £40.
