On holiday - home internet not responding - can plusnet reset?

Currently on holiday in USA - our home internet has stopped responding so we can’t access anything in the house. I’m not sure if it is the router that has gone down, or the fibre modem. Obviously if it is the router, not much can be done but in case it is the modem - is there any way for plusnet to initiate a remote reset?

Do you have a neighbour, relative or a friend that could pop in?

Hi @tonycollinet Our logs are showing your connection dropping regularly and line tests can see your speeds running slow at around 9mbps as a result. I've reset your line to try to improve your speeds which has momentarily dropped your connection, although this likely won't make your connection anymore stable: 

Don't think there's much you'd be able to do until you're home I'm afraid as I'd recommend going through the broadband troubleshooter at http://faults.plus.net completing the process to raise a fault to us to investigate further.

HI Gandalf

Thanks for your reply.

Back home now. All that was required was a modem and router reset. Regarding the drop outs - are you sure that is my account? The reason I ask is my speed test shows maxumum speed, and always does - while you say above that it has dropped to 9mb/s

Fix

Hi @tonycollinet,

 

Apologies as it does look my colleague was testing a different account.

 

I have tested your connection and it is running at 79.9Mbps with a pretty stable line of 2 disconnections in the past 50 days.
