Thanks for your PM. The line tests I have run have all came back passing with no clear fault on the line, other than the low sync rate. I have reset your port and the sync speed improved a little from 1.1Mbps to 1.7Mbps.

 

Can you please confirm or try the below troubleshooting steps?

-Have you made any recent changes to your setup? Eg moved the modem to another socket?
-Do you have a phone handset to test your dialtone? Please check to see if the dialtone is clear
-Does your modem phone cable plug directly into your phone socket? If not, can you please try this?
-Can you try another phone cable from the modem to your phone socket? Trying to use a phone cable under 3m
-How many phone sockets do you have in your house?
-Have you tried your modem on another phone socket?

-Have you got another modem you can test with?

Hi @DTD 

 

Thanks for confirming the above details. Your modem is showing that it has been connected for the last 6 minutes, so a little odd you no longer have internet.

 

I have requested for one of our Helpdesk Team members to give you a call later today.
