Issues with internet connection when weather is windy or raining

Level 2



As the title suggests, I have issues with internet conectivity when the weather is windy or raining. I assume the weather is causing either an interference or causing a disconnect. I have had a technician have a look at the connection but they visited on a day when the weather was perfect... then told me there was no issue with the set up and connectivity.

Is there any way I can resolve this issue without having a technician come in and have a look?

Or should I call again and have them look at something specific?


Hi @Monifa


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:
