NBN HFC dropouts

SOLVED Go to solution
Highlighted
Level 1c
Hi,

My TPG HFC connection has recently been dropping out quite often. I've noticed that even though the NBN modem has all 4v green lights on, the router needs to keep connecting to a few times a day.

I'm using a billion 8900ax2400 router and it's configured correctly. NBN modem is connected via ethernet to the router and all devices are wireless around the house.

Here is the log from today:

I've disabled IPv6 on the router since it was causing a few issues with devices and slowness to connect.
MTU=1492
Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

If there is anything else required, please let me know

Hi @kenhitokiri 

 

Welcome to the TPG Community!

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. I checked your account using your community details and was able to perform tests.

 

The test results show that the NBN Arris box has been connected for 4 days, but we're able to detect that your modem had intermittent connection. Further tests showed that we're not detecting any network issues. The possible reason for the disconnects, could be modem-related, the cable that connects the modem to the NBN box or the port at the back of the NBN box.

 

To further narrow down the issue, can you tell me what the status of the modem lights when the connection drops? We're particularly interested in the WAN light since that's the indicator of the connection between the NBN box and the modem itself.

 

It won't hurt to try and replace the ethernet cord as well.

 

Regards,

The status of the router light was showing the Internet/WAN light was off, but the NBN Modem had all 4 green lights on. When checking the status on the router, the WAN connection didn't have an IP address and was in a disconnected state.

After manually re-enabling the connection, an IP address assigned and it started working again.

I've replaced the ethernet cord and also re-enabled IPv6 to see if that has resolved any issues.

I'll check again once I get home tonight on the logs to see if there have been any issues during the day.

Hi @kenhitokiri, we have checked the status of your connection and it looks stable at the moment.

 

If you are still having issues with the service, please let us know so we can investigate further. Thank you.

Hi @Riezl ,

 

I've come back home and checked my connection and it seems to be only up for 6.5 hours or so. It went down around 11:25 am

Here are the logs for when the connection was lost:

Are there any other steps I can try?

Hi @kenhitokiri,

 

You are correct, our record show that the modem lost connection at 11:25:58AM NSW today. It reconnected back at 11:25:17AM.

 

The NTD box, however, did not lose the connection at all based on the test I performed.

 

Since you've already replaced the ethernet cord, we're down to either a LAN port issue on the NBN box or a modem trouble.

 

To address a possible LAN port issue with the NBN box, please perform a reset. There's a reset button at the back of the device.

 

If the reset of the NBN box doesn't resolve the issue, then the next step is to test another modem. I checked our records and it looks like you failed to pick up the modem that we provided you when you initially switched to the NBN service. I can send you a modem since you haven't received one from us yet. Can you PM me your shipping address so I can have that processed?

 

Regards,

Thanks for providing your shipping address, @kenhitokiri.

 

We're already processing the modem to be sent out. You'll be provided the consignment details once it's available.

Hi Will,

I've reset the NBN modem this morning.
Will have a look at the logs when I get back home this afternoon to see it there are any dropouts.

Thanks for letting us know, @kenhitokiri. We are also monitoring the status of the modem reshipment request and will revert to you once an update becomes available.

Hi Riezl,

After resetting the NBN modem, I haven't noticed any dropouts yesterday.
I'll check it again tomorrow morning but have a feeling it's resolved.

Thanks for help and support
