Hello Max! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed network / computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. What is the model of your internet/wireless modem/router device?

If you have another computer, does it affect also?

Does this issue occur with wireless or wired connection? or both?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

{1}modem/router device. TalkTalk 3745A4 + white BT openreach box - presumably fibreoptic?

[2] Have 3 computers and all have same problem (Other two switched off at the moment - but still have identical ptoblem with this one.}

[3} Wireless (3 computers in family ) - always had respectable speed, untill TalkTalk phone help.

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 2 years ago.

Since it affects all computers, it looks like the issue with your BT box and/or your internet connection line/service, but let's try some test.

There is only one BT / internet box box right? Is there any other device connected to the BT box?

1. Can you disconnect the power cord from the BT box for a few minutes, then reconnect, and check?

2. Is it possible to remove the BT box for now, then connect a computer to the TalkTalk box directly, then check internet speed?

3. Can you turn off wireless on the computer, then connect an Ethernet/network cable from the computer to the BT box, and test wired internet connection speed?

We've been communicating, but it looks like you are not there; when you are available, please reply back at the box below to continue. Thank you,



Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Had some delays

(1) One internet box no other device connected

(2) Disconnecting power no effect

(3) BUT WIRED CONNECTION GAVE OVER 4O MB/S - so thanks to Viet?

So I guess its a wireless connection problem, but why now suddenly, and what can I doo about it as multiple family computers all over house? Cant wire them all.

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 2 years ago.

Thank you. This confirms your internet line/service is fine as wired connection speed is fine. The issue is with wireless hardware and/or software with the BT box since all computers have issue with wireless speed. Did TalkTalk try to reset your BT router box previously (there is usually a reset button on the router, but do not try it yourself)? Can you check with TalkTalk to see if there is any firmware update for your BT modem/router box?

Thank you.,
