Run an isolation test
Issues with your internet connection are often caused by devices or equipment connected to your phone line and could be the result of faulty filter/splitters, broken ethernet cables, landline telephones, fax machines or even digital set-top boxes causing inference.
If you’re experiencing slower than usual speeds, internet dropouts or static noises on your phone line, conducting this test can help isolate any equipment in your home that might be interfering with your network connection.
Reset your modem
A Wi-Fi issue
Try connecting directly to the modem using an Ethernet cable. If this works, it may indicate a Wi-Fi issue, see our Wi-Fi troubleshooting for more help and advice.
Try another browser
Close your internet browser entirely and open a new one as sometimes the program you are using to access the internet has encountered an error.
If you’re using Wi-Fi, try disconnecting from the network and then reconnecting. This should re-establish your connection to the modem.
