Yup, just got in and checked.  What does that mean?

@nhlchenr1, apologies for the delayed response. I've made a config change to your router that should hopefully have helped.

@xfx295, you too, let me know if you're still encountering difficulties.

Re: Plusnet fibre broadband does not cope with uploads and will disconnect you...

I'm also having this problem. The disconnections happen fairly regularly during heavy usage of the upload/download streams, and last for around 30 seconds or so.

 

I'm on the 40/2 package.

 

Plusnet Hub One | Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.226 | Last updated Unknown

 

Can the admin here please update my router so I can see if this resolves the issue? Thanks.

Re: Plusnet fibre broadband does not cope with uploads and will disconnect you...

Hi,

First post so apologies for any newbie errors.

I've had problems with my hub one dropping connection, but not as bad as some people mention here. Probably on average once a week.

It is not a major inconvenience but it seems sensible to check the upgrade status of my router.

I notice some people post a lot of detail in their help requests and others do not - can you identify the information you require about my router from my community/linked account details? Or do I need to gather some versions/serial numbers at home?

 

Regards,

James

Hi Bob,

ok - thanks for the quick reply.

I'll try to see if it makes any difference - I was not aware I was uploading anything but there are lots of devices connecting at home.

I suppose the odd drop out is 'normal' I think your support said it would need to be up to 3 times a day before they would consider action.

Anyway thanks for the info,

James

Re: Plusnet fibre broadband does not cope with uploads and will disconnect you...

Yeah, it's admittedly frustrating and you could argue that a drop every few days isn't 'normal'. The challenge is: getting our suppliers to agree with that viewpoint. It's rarely worth the investment in repeat engineers to investigate such issues if I'm honest.

Re: Plusnet fibre broadband does not cope with uploads and will disconnect you...

I have similar issues. When my laptop backups to onedrive no other devices can get a decent internet connection mlaptop included. My download rate drops to only 1MBS. As soon as I stop onedrive upload the speed goes back up to 35MBS and all devices run really fast but if my laptop is uploading nothing can be downloaded. Even my sky disconnects from catch up. And I'm not using the stock router. I'm using a TP link VDSL modem. Happens regardless of whether i select 5GHZ or 2.4GHZ broadband and with plusnet stock router also.

The TP link router won't disconnect but I can't download whilst I'm backing up photos to google photos or onedrive. As soon as these are finished downloads resume as normal.

@Paulmt123 have you tried limiting Onedrive's bandwidth? I'm pretty sure the default is unlimited.
