Wireless troubles, is this MTU?

I’m not sure what this is, what do you guys think?

I’ve only been with Talktalk for 2 months and its a nightmare. The problem i have is that i got the free broadband package, installed my wireless router etc and now enjoy endless nights on the phone to the ‘brain cadets’ within their technical faults department. Getting connected to the internet is just a gamble; normally i lose.

I’ve turned off my firewall, got rid of the 60 quid Norton 360 anti-virus in favour of thier’ F-secure (advised by one of said brain cadets), i’ve even rebooted my PC from scratch as every time i phone Talktalk they say i’m connected and there isn’t a problem or they just reset the modem and get it to eventually work. One advisor told me to ring another talktalk number which ended up being a number to the Geek Squad, in which i would have to pay someone to come out and look at my fault; something which i think talktalk should do free of charge!

The thing is, there isn’t a customer help line that i can find, all i get is options for sales, faults for phone or broadband. I mention this to an advisor from their technical support section and she said that they just raise a complaint on their database and someone will call me (which hasn’t happened). I’d be very happy to end the contract and go with someone else.

Any advice? Have you heard of anything like this fault?

Any advice appreciated! ๐Ÿ™‚

Trouble with phones!

Hey guys,

Anyone else having issues like this?

My parents switched to TalkTalk about a year ago because they can call me in the US and relatives in Australia for free plus they get broadband internet. For the last six weeks their service has been useless to nonexistent. They received a letter saying their service would go out for a few hours while the lines were upgraded and nothing has worked since. No dial tone. Cut off after a few minutes. Today we tried to chat and gave up after 6 tries to connect. I also get a message saying their line is busy when they arenโ€™t even using it.

They tried calling customer service and were told that the line was fine, they needed to recharge their fine and there was nothing TalkTalk could do. They even got cut off during the call to Customer Service but were still told your line is fine.

Anyone else having these problems recently?

Let us know ๐Ÿ™‚
