Slow Connection

Anyone in Canberra experiencing slow connection speeds ? 

 

Since TPG's unackowledged DNS outage on the 15th September my connection has been dropping from my standard hardly fantastic speed of 35mb/s down to 5mb/s.

 

Occuring on multiple devices , modem reboot seems to fix it for a bit but then slows down again (standard tpg tp-link modem)

Hi @robbarns ,

 

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:

 

• Troubleshooting a Slow Internet Connection
