Hi All, seem to have hit a brick wall with BT support so any suggestions welcome. Have a smart hub 2 which has been operating happily for some time with 3 wi-fi discs. Had a power cut a week ago and ever since the hub drops connection 30secs to 10minute intervals. Blue light stays on at all times and BT tell me everything is fine and dandy, but it clearly isn't and started immediately after the power cut. It's v. frustrating as both my wife and I are working from home. It drops out on wired and wireless connections. BT have remotely fiddled with settings and we have also been asked to factory reset. A line engineer has been up to improve the phone line which had some static but this makes no difference. Any ideas? Could the hub be damaged although still working with blue light? BT are resisting sending out an engineer.

in order for the forum members to help please can you post the stats from your router (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser) and if HH5 then go to troubleshooting then helpdesk and if HH6/SH2 then advanced settings then technical log information .
Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal
do you use a filter at phone socket or does socket have 2 outlets - phone and broadband? have you tried connecting to test socket with a filter to see if that stabilises your connection
enter your phone number and post results remember to delete number https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
Hi All, I called the quiet line albeit on a cordless seemed ok, as I said a line engineer has been out recently. Here is other info; Dare I say it seems a little bit more stable. I opted out of bt wifi and disconnected my second hub on the other side of the house, instead hard-wiring straight into the ps4 in that room. Anything else out of the normal below?
can you go to technical log in advanced settings and post the hub stats
what do you have connected to the phone side of the master socket?
with that type of master which just clips in place some posts have had problems as the front had come loose and needed pushed back into place
Hi, the landline engineer has just changed the socket so assume its fixed back properly, seems ok...I only have a bt cordless phone on phone side of socket. Here's the stats;
Stats show you have been connected for 11 hrs at max 80/20mb so disconnections at present are not affecting your connection speed
what about the other points?
Hi, the new hub is up and running but did not immediately solve the dropping out issue. However, the removal of the second router from the network seemed to solve the problem and we are now holding a connection as shown. Perhaps the second router was damaged in the power cut?
