BT2700HGV and disconnects


[link to this post]
 
Hi Guys,

In the never-ending quest to find the perfect router for my ADSL2+ line since my Cisco 877 won't play fair, I decided to try a BT2700HGV yesterday (rumour has it that these are great at holding sync). Picked it up from a friend and it had the Singtel firmware on it. Got it running last night however the BQM shows multiple drops over night. This morning I loaded on a version (v5.29.107.12) of the BT firmware from here: http://bt2700hgv.tripod.com/ir1002700HGV.htm

Router was officially connected at 1:30pm today. According to the stats, it's dropped 6 times in a little under 10hrs (along with my sync speed).

Here's a link to the stats - http://i42.tinypic.com/np2dtf.jpg

Router is currently connected to the upstairs extension (only extension off the master socket). I know I need to plug this in the test socket and retest. Hopefully I will be able to do that soon.

I did have briefly a Netgear DG834G v4 and that was somewhat stable (occasionally had it's moments). Will have to see if I can get another one.

I'm currently with Xilo on their C&W LLU service.

Could there be a fault or just the BT2700GHV not liking the LLU equipment?

Looking at the BQM shows it has been stable overnight. The only thing I did last night at the last time it dropped was replace the ADSL Nation microfilter with another brand.

Going to bounce the BT2700HGV to see if I can get my speed back.

You know, I used a TPlink adsl router on the same service and never had a problem.. All for £0, well it was a christmas present for about £40 from my other 1/2.
