NBN Internet constantly disconnects

Level 2

Since installation a year and a half ago, our NBN internet has constantly been disconnecting. Not long interruptions, usually ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes. But it happens multiple times a day, constantly causing our 5+ smart devices to reconnect and not working. It also makes online gaming incredibly frustrating.


When I contacted TPG last year, all I got was " Everything looks good on our end" so I've been saving the logs from our modem. If any engineers want to take a look at occurance after occurance of:

Hi @krislunde,


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:
