constant drop out issue

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I'm using Telstra Ultimate Cable currently and it constantely drops out every 0.5-3 hours since last week, and it will reconnect instantly. i checked the router configuration and it is fine (same as original settings). Also, some of my friends have experienced similar issues. 

 

Can anyone help me with this problem?

 

Thanks,

Hi Billrizer,

Welcome to Crowd Support!

There are a few things you can do before having to call tech support on 133 933 to get a technician appointment to investigate your issue.

 

  • Restart your modem at the power
  • Factory reset it by holding the reset pinhole in the back of the modem in for about 10 seconds (Don't worry, as long as you haven't changed any settings you won't need to reconfigure it.)
  • Take out the coaxial cable from botht he wallplate and the modem, clean out any dust and reconnect them.

 

Other than that, do you have Foxtel and if so are you having any issues with it? Do those steps and if it doesn't help then you'd probably be looking at getting a tech out to check your service. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your help Lathania. Yes I have tried all of them before and I don't have a Foxtel. I think there could be some problems with cable line itself.

A bit late, but online method is https://telstra-operations.custhelp.com/app/chat/chat_launch/session/L3RpbWUvMTMzNjU5MDAzNi9zaWQvQTk...

 

But Lathania, I'm sure you knew that :smileywink:. I just hate having to sit on hold to a call centre, and Prefer LiveChat :smileyhappy:

All Fixed-Line (PSTN) faults for Residential customers can go via: https://service.telstra.com.au/general/home-phone-fault/?execution=e1s1

 

Before proceeding, please contact Telstra on 13 22 03 if:

  • Anyone living at the premises has a diagnosed life-threatening medical condition with a high risk of rapid deterioration and whose life may be at risk without access to a working telephone
  • Your fault is affecting more than one phone line
  • You have reported a fault on the same service in the past 30 days

Technical Support for Bigpond can be contacted via https://telstra-operations.custhelp.com/app/chat/chat_launch/ and I believe they can escalate faults as well.
