    Dropped Connections, please help!

    I am in the UK and have Sky Broadband. I was getting constant dropped connections randomly with their equipment so upgraded to TP-Link, yet I am still getting dropped connections, can anyone help?

    I have an Archer VR900 downstairs (v2) and a C50 router upstairs, both are connected by a TP Link power line adapter. I have scanned for the best channels to use through my mac, have the modern set to look for Sky's DNS settings manually.

    When the service drops the NCSI shows as a fail and it states 'please configure DNS settings manually' but I have done that. If I change the dns settings to something like open DNS my ping times are awful and the speeds are lower.

    Also, every time the connection drops, I check the Sky broadband checker and it says the service is fine.

    The only thing I can think of is the power lines are connected using extension cables, but the problem still persists if I just connect to the downstairs modem

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    VR900 is the main modem, is the DSL light solid on when it drops?
    Make sure the modem is working properly at first.

    Hi Kevin, yes the lights stay on as do all the wifi logos on my devices.
