I seem to be having a problem where every now and again everything freezes. It's just done it while I was ordering something online and I got charged twice because the first time timed out. This ONLY seems to happen on Ethernet because I can switch to the wireless and carry on. I've got 3 machines all do the same. It's anywhere from 45 seconds to 2 minutes.
Not all of us want to use wireless which is why I go hard wired. However my problem is that if I put another router on ( in this case a Billion 8800NL) then the speed drops. I don't get any hangs but I don't get over 59mbps either as this test shows.
I know there are problems around the UK right now and I have been enoying since the start a solid 80/20 connection.
Is it possible this HH5 is faulty? Why does it only do it on Ethernet? (I've tried all 4 ports and changed the Etherent cable at my own expense. But it's still going on.
I think Based on the fact I have used another router and all 3 pieces of equipment and 5 different browsers that the HH5 is the problem. But am I wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well, as no one seems to care let's solve it this way.
I'll chuck your piece of **bleep** in the **bleep**ING bin , use my own router and dump you totally in 5 months time.
around 2PM. All is good - everything is flowing fine.
4:10PM - it's gone to **bleep** and it's like treacle getting data through.
1-12 right now.

If this is area congestion they can stuff it. I've been on a full cab for years and never had a problem with Zen in the 2 years I was with them on the same line with the same stats. Same price too so I expect the same
Well next door's connection on another ISP is faultless. Same cab same exchange. It's BT and their ill managed network.
My bank account will be congested whilst this is in action, see how they like them apples.
Just to try and clarify what the problem is.
You have said in this post and where you posted on other threads that you were having problems/connection hanging when the Homehub 5 was connected so you did away with it and started using your Billion but when you did that you had a stable connection but a slight drop in speed.
Have you now reconnected the HH5?
Are the speed test you have shown ones that have been run on the HH5?
If you are using the HH5 what are your speeds like when you use your Billion?
