Internet drops in Windy conditions

We have the NBN FTTC installation and whenever it is windy our Internet drops and will then reconnect.  On windy days this can happen on numerous occasions.  All items remain connected to the wifi.

As we work from home and use videoconferencing a lot this is becoming a major issue.

What can we do to address this issue?

Hi @greghollyman ,

 

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:
