Pulse8 Broadband Intermittent Broadband


[link to this post]
 
Anyone have problems with Adsl broadband
I have an ongoing problem for last month.
I sync at 13 down 0.8 up. Stats. 9db 32 down 0.8 up.
Some of time browsing is slow or non existent. Have to wait for letters to appear in browser, spinning wheel appears to left of web address, site does not connect and have to force exit.
Other times browsing is fast and normal.
Recently I have had to reboot router in morning. Router in sync, but no connection to host.
Download always fine, even 4k, Upload seems to appear problem whereby can take ages to connect then at 0.2 and rises to 0.4 or sometimes does not connect.
Any ideas? Congestion?
Connects to extension but no different from master.
Fibre is available but no speed advantage

What do Pulse8 have to say?

I would try a different router to see if that changes anything .

Always useful having a cheap/second hand router to test with and if there is no change with different kit it proves to the ISP it's not you router causing the issue.

Hmmm, sounds similar to a fault I attended last week .... Crawlingly slow, pages timing out etc .... In the end proved to be 'something' on the punters 'main' PC, as soon as this was on and connected to the web, everything ran like a dog ... Mr.S on here suggested 'something' was swamping the upload, like maybe something uploading vast amounts (backing up photos ?) to the cloud or similar.....

The punter thought this had all started after a recent Windows 10 update.

If you can turn off and disconnect EVERYTHING that speaks to the router, then reconnect one at a time, speed testing as you go till you find the culprit.

Worth a go .....

Thanks

Have set up another router. As intermittent fault will leave to morning.
My provider advised errors on line- increased db to 12. Could also be splitter, changed but router in sync without throughput again this morning.Or laptop, but problem on windows phone as well.

Browsing slow could be DNS? Im guessing you're using the default Talk talk DNS settings, try changing to OpenDNS or Google DNS

Im with Pulse8 and not having this.
