PN router keeps dropping

We have had Plusnet since June 2016 with no issues. 

Recently, the router keeps losing its internet connection every 15 minutes.

The only change I made, within the PN hub settings, was to restrict some of the mobiles to 2pm until 10pm. 

I have since cleared this but the problem is still there.

Re: PN router keeps dropping

Your line is disconnecting very frequently:

 

Testing your line isn't showing any obvious problems:

Test Outcome Pass
Test Outcome Code GTC_FTTC_SERVICE_0001
Description GEA service test completed and no fault found but unable to check for customer equipment connected to modem.
Main Fault Location OK
Sync Status In Sync
Downstream Speed 40.0 Mbps
Upstream Speed

2.0 Mbps

 

Is there any noise on the phone line when you plug a handset in and dial 17070 running the quiet line test.

Re: PN router keeps dropping

We have not had this problem resolved.  The PN router keeps losing the internet.  Does anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks

Re: PN router keeps dropping

Have you tried a factory reset of the router? Plusnet will probably ask you to try it at some point so you might as well get ahead of the game.

Re: PN router keeps dropping

My problem is a mirror of Jamiemackay 's and has been going on for more than a fortnight. I have phoned the PN help line many times but there has always been a waiting time of 45 minutes. NOT GOOD ENOUGH PN!

 

I seem to have 2 kinds of disconnection (a) total (occasional) and (b) short-lived (frequent).. I am on the Madderty exchange (ESMAD), PN username: arcadian. I have done the following:

 

1.Connected directly into the back of the BT Master Socket - NTE5

2. Done a quiet line test (it is quiet)

3. Reset my router (Technicolor TG582n )

 

I have left my PC connected with an ethernet cable to the back of the master socket so that you can do a line test.

 

Your help would be much appreciated

 

P.S. It used to be much easier when one could "raise a ticket" online and then wait for a phone call and/or an email.

Apologies for the continued problems. Sad

 

If you haven't already I'd recommend getting this raised to us at http://faults.plus.net as it's likely we'll need to arrange an engineer.

Re: PN router keeps dropping

could be the same 60Khz hum that I had you cannot hear it with you ears but a radio should pick it up if you place it near your phone line
