    talktalk fibre router going red every hour

    Got talktalk fibre broadband had it for a year no problems now the thing just goes red every hour making my devices lose internet connection. It even sometimes just turns off the complete wireless network. Is it just talktalk that is rubbish or my line?

    I had a similar issue around a year ago with their fibre router which was working A OK for around 18 months. After many painful hours on the telephone I decided to go to the Talk Talk online chat -wish I had gone straight to them - They sent a new one out straight away and bingo problem solved. So my advice would be go through online chat tell then you have tried everything suggested on website and they should send you a new one. Hope that helps

    Sounds like the other devices are purposely embarrassing the poor router every hour for it to be going red that often.
    Sorry... don't know why I said that

    Nothing lasts forever, ring them and request a replacement.

    I will give it a go. If a new router still doesnt fix it can i cancell with paying any termination charges?

    I thought of commenting with something similar X)

    It's TT juggling their customer base by having a third of the routers go red at a time, as they have 3 times the number of customers their network can handle.

    Or the router is dying, the spec is decent, but obviously built down to a price point for them. 2nd/3rd generation VDSL routers have developed a reputation of overheating for some reason; there are only a few models where people havent complained about it.

    Suggest leaving TT. My broadband was fine till i switched to their fibre-awfull.

    No you have to give then time to find and fix the problem

    Talk talk is great if you are using a good router, don't use Talktalk's own router. If you want great router from the service provider then there is no choice but BT Infinity
