Smart Hub Disconnecting and Loss of Speed Issues

Go to solution

Hello. I have been on my current BT Infinity 1 plan for a year now and have had good service and no major problems until the middle of last month.

 

My Smart Hub disconnects 20+ times per day going from solid blue to flashing orange to solid orange then back to solid blue.

 

It will reconnect for anywhere between 20 minutes to 4 hours before disconnecting again. At its worst it will reconnect for ten minutes before going again 5-10 times which added together drains a good couple of hours of fruitless effort per day.

 

My speeds have gone from a solid 30-40+ down 5-10 up to 5 -8 down and 0.25-1 up. (via Ookla).

 

I have telephoned BT 3 times and each time I have been told there is nothing wrong their end and it must have something to do with one of my devices. I have since disconnected all devices for a day and the Smart Hub still disconnects the same amount. Even penning this post has gone through 2 disconnects. There hasn't been a day in the past 3 weeks where this hasn't occurred at least 10 times let alone not at all.

 

I have done the 17070 option 2 quiet test and there is no noise on the line. I have factory resetted the router 10+ days ago. Smart Hub is connected to the master socket. This occurs on both wired and wireless connections.

Your "solid" 30-40+ was indicative of a problem to begin with the notsoSmart hub has likely "eggs **bleep** er pasted" the problem.

 

Try a connection to the test socket with filter and a quiet line test with a corded phone 17070 option 2, there should be no noise.

I didn't get any filters with the Smart Hub but have got this one still from a few years ago. Is this ok for this purpose?

I have tried the quiet test in the test socket with the above filter and there is no noise. Had dozens of disconnects overnight and today.

So what's my next move? I have already called the call centres 3 times and they won't send an engineer out because they can't see anything wrong with my connection when they do their tests on my line from their end.
