Internet is dropping out, significant error packets on downstream

Level 2

Hi there,


My internet has been dropping out since yesterday afternoon. I had pfsense acting as the firewall with the TPG supplied modem in bridge mode. I kept having the interface restart due to packet loss.


I have since bypassed pfsense and I'm using the supplied modem to authenticate using PPoE and it is showing downstream packet loss.


Would you be able to look at my connection?
