Talktalk sent me three different Sagemcom Routers.
The frozen lines was almost always in the working day; only once on a Saturday, otherwise on weekdays. Twice I had Openreach engineers to check the line; the first time the line was clear but the engineer changed my master socket front to a two outlet socket (phone and data). The second time the engineer told me that I was the tenth Talktalk customer she had visited that day with identical problems but the lines always tested perfectly. She told me that there were 41,000 Talktalk customers having the same problem...
Now my dentist, on Plusnet, from the same exchange but a different cabinet seems to be having a similar problem with regular weekday outages.
My line is now stable (fingers crossed) ever since Talktalk changed my modem from a Sagemcom one to a Huawei DG8041W - which looks identical.
I find it hard to understand why three Sagemcom routers froze but this Huawei one doesn't and what was causing the freezes? Was it the router at all, or just conincidence that the fault was cured at the same time as I got the new kit. I am curious and wonder if anyone might have a possible answer!
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions
