Thanks for that - this sounds pretty much like the same issue but luckily it starts earlier during working hours.
Question is, would Virgin Media cable be affected in a similar way if it was found to be localised? I assume that because it is Coax it is less suseptible to noise.
I am only asking becase this is an option for me.
The fibre connection does eventually calm down but usually when it is capped to around 15-20Mb
Decisions decisions. Any thougths grateful.... and disclaimers allowed
depends on the issue and where it is. REIN is caused by equipment having unusual electro magnetic fields which affect the tranmission of data on copper cable or directly on electrical equipment if within the offending field. If the source of the REIN is on your property and hitting the router directly it will affect any connection. However this is unlikely most commonly the sources are in the path from the local cab, usually offenders are items like CCTV monitors, Lamp posts with damaged circiutry, tube lighting, etc.
Easiest way is to test yourself, get a analogue radio and tune to 612Khz, if you move it near a object with emitting REIN, you will hear a loud static crackle. Easy to do in your home, not so much in someone elses
