I know that the live chat option is now down. Is there anyone I can speak to about my broadband connection that keeps dropping out? When I reset the router it seems to come back, but at times, it can be dropping out every few minutes. Any advice?
Hi @Anonymous User
Is it that you are losing the internet or the wifi drops out on your devices ?
If it's wifi rather than the internet and you have the NowTV Hub 2 Router then you could try this.
Your Hub Two is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5 GHz). Splitting these bands to create 2 different Wi-Fi networks can help to improve the speed to your devices. Here’s how to do it:
I think it has more to do with losing the internet, as the router will show yellow lights, or the middle one will go off. I have followed your steps anyway to see if there is improvement.
Hi @Anonymous User
If the middle light changes from green to amber / red or goes off on the front of the Router then there is a possible internet connection issue.
I am guessing you have tried plugging all the cables back in between the Router and master BT telephone socket again ?
You may have to phone the NowTV Broadband Team (expect a long wait on the phone).
You should find their telephone number under My Account > Broadband & Calls and click Broadband Plan, then click the arrow below it, then click change my plan where a telephone number should appear on screen to phone.
I have similar issues - it is not the wifi as it happens on both wired and wireless connections. It is frustrating, as when it works, it works well. However when it drops out in the middle of a Teams or Zoom meeting it is very irritating! It can happen multiple times a day or not at all so no real pattern to timings either. Can last seconds or a few minutes.
Give the broadband team a call to see what they can do for you.
How to submit your complaint:
@Anonymous User I know this is an old thread now, but did you get an solution to this?
its happening to me too - every few minutes there is a drop in connection which comes back on after a minute or two but then goes again in the next 5-10 mins.
The lights are all green on both the router and the booster I have so I'm guessing its an external issue?
Call the broadband team and ask for full investigation including checking the lines that are in the street outside your property all the way back to the exchange. Number is in the link below.
thanks - yeah I may have to. What just happened was the router dropped all the IP addresses and rebuilt them but did not connect the boosters I have. I have to reset the whole thing and reconnect the boosters after giving them a hard reset. Only then are they recognised.
