Internet Drops Out

Level 2

Internet keeps dropping out multiple times during the day and night and then comes back around anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes. Have reset modem but problem continues. Everything on surge protection. Started a couple of weeks ago, no noticeable problems before that. Have had rain recently and i remember the nbn tech saying last time he was called out for a faulty modem that there was some water in the pit. Could this be affecting it. Get it fixed TPG!!


Hi @jward155


Welcome to the Community! 


There are different types of dropouts that you may experience:


1. Network dropouts, this dropout is caused by a line fault on TPG or NBN's network. Affecting all device(s) LAN/Wireless connected to the modem/router this may require a real-time test and investigation by our Technicians and Engineers.


2. Wireless dropouts, this issue only affects the device(s) connected via Wi-Fi which can easily be fix by doing adjustment to the modem/router's settings.


3. Dropouts caused by ongoing outage in your area.

In the event that you experience dropouts via Wireless/Wi-Fi connection, we recommend having a read on the following articles:

I've managed to run remote test and have detected drop outs on the connection. The issue is now raised to our Engineering team for further investigation. Please ensure to l;eave the modem connected and turned on for remote testing purposes.
