Re: Plusnet Hub One Flashing Orange Light

 

Hi Jayne,

 

Thanks for your patience whilst I did some work on this.

 

I'm having issues submitting this via the normal channels, so I've escalated this to our suppliers as a manual fault - the way that the fault will be dealt with won't change, it just means I get your information and the fault status to the people who need it.

 

I'll ask my colleagues to keep an eye on this over the weekend, otherwise I'll pick it up on Monday when I'm in at 2pm.

 

Best wishes

 

Dave

Re: Plusnet Hub One Flashing Orange Light

@RandallFlagg well today has been and gone and our connection is still largely unusable... any news? Patience now starting to wear a little thin! :sad:

Sorry to hear this, Jayne.

 

I'll ask one of my colleagues on the earlier shift to pick this up for you as a priority in the morning and feed back accordingly.

 

Thanks

Re: Plusnet Hub One Flashing Orange Light

@Gandalf

Seems to be a remarkable improvement and so thanks for your help with this. However, it does feel like the support engineer we spoke to 10 days ago could have put this all into motion and saved everyone's time and effort as opposed to just blaming us (the users) and the router.

 

Thanks, Jayne

Re: Plusnet Hub One Flashing Orange Light

Hi Jayne.

I'm glad to see that your speeds have improved now, though they're still below where we'd expect them to be and our tests are showing a high resistance problem on the line which we'd need to arrange an engineer visit to investigate further.

But first to rule out any internal wiring affecting your connection could you try the steps here letting us know once you've completed it and we'll retest your line and see if the fault is still present.

Yep all checked and seems fine. We have a master socket with 2 sockets and the router is plugged in directly with a short patch lead.

Re: Plusnet Hub One Flashing Orange Light

Thanks Jayne, could you try plugging the router into the test socket behind the bottom half of the faceplate?

@Gandalf @RandallFlagg

 

Sorry no, I can't connect to the plug under the front face plate as there is no RJ11(?) under the plate; there is only a normal telephone socket. The cable from BT wall box to the router has RJ11(?) at both ends.

The only way I could make the connection to the socket under the plate would be to use a microfilter as an adapter; is that what you want?

Re: Plusnet Hub One Flashing Orange Light

Yep if you use a microfilter you'll be able to plug the router into the test socket in the centre.

Let us know once you've done this.

@Gandalf

Hi there, took a few mins for the router to obtain a new broadband connection but now seems ok. Connected to the master socket under the front cover via a microfilter.

@Gandalf

 

I have replied to the ticket...

"There is normally someone available here on Mondays & Fridays. Tomorrow (18th Jan) morning or evening will be fine as will the following Monday (21st).

I'm being advised by yourselves there is a fault present and so, no, I will not accept a charge if no fault is found."

Thanks, Jayne
