frequent drops, ppp error

Level 3

hi , support

 

there are frequent internet drops at my place, I have tried reboot, and 2 modems (initially i thought it was my Netgear modem faulty , so I m using TPG tplink modem now ). same issue still.

 

 everytime when it happens , interent drops for 1-2 mins , sometimes we need to reboot the modem to bring back the interent .

 

see filtered logs below relating to PPP error from my TPG modem.

Hi @junlei84 

 

All tests are passing on your NBN-FTTC 12/1 service in our systems.

 

Im not sure if you are using the TPG supplied modem or not, but i good test would be to definitely use a different modem to help with TS.

hi David

 

see logs below, it happened twice today already , I was using a netgear modem which was having this issue.

 

Now im using TPG provided TP-link modem, still having the same issue.

 

there is only 1 telpone socket at home , no telphone in my home. Does the wall socket needs a filter ?

Hi @junlei84 

 

No. NBN modems, NCDs should go direct to the socket with ALL other equipment removed.

 

Maybe a longer monitoring with a constant ping test would be better to determine any line issues.

 

Thanks,

hi David,

 

this issue is more servere and frequent  at night time, every 5 mins it will drop.

 

ping test is fine when interent is up:

 

C:\Users\nikki>ping 8.8.8.8 -t
