Had lost internet problems since april. Many, many calls logged and promised problem would be fixed. Prior to april, no changes to house, infrastructure etc, nothing changed and service up to this point good.
started getting link dropped, followed by really slow speeds. Sometimes the speed dropping from 21mbps, to 17, 11, 8, 1.5 then would drop too.
Kindly had a SmartHub6 installed replacing the 4, but after a few days same issues, so its not the hub. Annoyingly ive had 2 engineer no shows, only to be subsequently told the engineer had fixed the problem outside the property.
Since ive started looking the logs there are a couple of trends, a morning hit around 8:10 is common, but its nothing in the house im pretty sure, so maybe REIN near box/line/exchange?
It has also dropped during the night when there has been no activity at all other than inbound cast stuff (i dont have BT TV).
Its getting hugely frustrating, the no-shows dont help. During a recent online chat session with support, i was promised 2x disc/repeaters which never turned up either.
I feel i am stuck in a never ending loop now of fault raised, online chat, engineer within 3 days, will be fixed, wait 48hrs to monitor. ... and then it isnt, so another week goes by.
i got a letter in post this morning from Nick Lane (office of) asking me to bear with BT, but really i see no form of escalation or ownership, just this constant repetition loop.
please, please can a Mod help?
Hi @BikerSteve thanks for posting, I'm so sorry to see the problems with your connection have not been resolved and that engineers haven't turned up.
Please can you post your router stats and we'll take a look? Also try the quiet line test by dialling 17070 from your landline to check for noise.

you are listening for line noise apart from announcement - any crackle, buzz etc?
can you post your hub stats. Advanced settings then technical log information
did you turn off smart setup as that often causes problems
ok, done log, its 488 pages, saved in ibooks. How do i get that to you please?
Smart set-up off. This is newish smarthub6 replacing 4 where this used to happen as much.
sorry not the logs. It is the technical logs informstion which will show your hubconnection stats
your connection stats looks good 22/7mb with noise margin about normal 6db and conenction time at 14hrs
from your stats the networks are not split and splitting may help your wireless devices http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/56419/~/how-do-i-split-my-bt-hubs-ssid-%28wireless-ne...
it may also help to select channels manually rather than smart auto
