Tiscali are still insisting that there is no issue with their side of\nthings...\n\nThe issue would now seem to have spread to affecting all servers,\nrather than just TalkTalk ones.\n\nThey are offering too send an engineer out test check the line and\nsetup out, which I have refused working on the assumption that...\n\nI have tried several routers, which I can instantly swap into use,\nseveral PC's and all exhibit exactly the same problems. I also have a\nrock steady connection which never disconnects, connects consistently\nat 18Mb and never, ever logs any errors on either LAN or WAN. Left to\nits own devices, my router would remain connected for years. We are on\ncopper, close to the exchange and our phone is equally reliable, with\nno noise on the line ever.\n\nAt the moment it is varying tremendously in my ability to connect to\nsites - sometimes it loads pages instantly, sometimes it takes repeated\nattempts to load a page, sometimes it will not connect at all,\nsometimes it reports as unable to even find the site which I know is\nthere. Usually I can ping them and I get sub 35mS ping times despite\nnot being able to load the pages.\n\nWas I right to refuse the engineer and pass the issue back to them and\ntheir network?
