Drop outs every two minutes for the past week

Level 1b

Hi. Could a service rep please test my connection?


I have been having drop outs every two to five minutes for the past few days on both WiFi and ethernet connections, on multiple devices. My (TPG provided) Huawei modem constantly has both the ADSL and internet lights dropping out and flashing.


I have tried soft resetting, hard resetting, flushing DNS, factory reset, changing WiFi channels and so on, but the problem remains.

Hi @catan 


Welcome to the Community!


Based on the tests we've performed, we're detecting a possible line fault that may need to be raised to Telstra. We have escalated this issue to our Engineering Team for further investigation. Please expect an update within 24 hours via SMS or phone call on the number we have on file. Should you wish to provide us a different contact number, send me a PM so we can forward it over.
