NBN internet keeps dropping out

Hi there,

 

Just looking for help with my NBN connection which for the last week has been dropping out every 20 minutes or so. Each time it takes up to 5 minutes to reconnect. We have been in our address for 4 months now with no issues.

 

I've tried resetting the modem but it hasen't helped. 

 

Cheers,

Chris

Hi @chobmania ,

 

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:
