ASUS DSL - AC68U Modem Hangup


[link to this post]
 
Hi, just bought a brand new ASUS DSL-AC68U modem/router for new Zen fibre.
Unfortunately it is continually disconnecting from the net,sometimes it will go 5 mins others a few hours.

I am putting some stats up, can anybody tell me from those if it's a hardware issue or a line issue.

Thanks.

Re: ASUS DSL - AC68U Modem Hangup

Chase down firmware updates, the original DSL-55 review unit was a dog until newer firmware arrived.

With no reason given the modem hangup it is hard to say, not uncommon for xDSL microcode to need tweaking on modems.

Thanks,I have already got the newest firmware and I haven't a clue how to tweak it.

If I knew if it was the hardware or the actual phone line it would be a start.

There should be a router stats type page, if the noise margin (SNR) figure is totally stable then probably not the line that's the issue, if the SNR margin is wandering around and particularly low once the sun has set then how the modem is handling the noise looks to be the issue.

Microcode you cannot tweak that is down to the Asus developers, are there any VDSL config options available to you at all.

I have a table called DSL log and that is showing SNR both up and down as 5.9 d.B it refreshes every few seconds and only changes to 6.0 now and again.

As regards config options there are so many I think assuming this problem carries on my best bet will be ringing Asus support so I can change anything they recommend.

At the moment it hasn.t cut off for about 4 hours so improving.

Does it have an option for the VDSL profile? E.g. 8c, 17a, 30a? Needs to be 17a or something that includes that.

PPPoE?

Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.6/14.1Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

You could use the BT Openreach supplied VDSL modem to test the line, that should tell you if it's a line fault.

Thanks for that.

Yes I sent a feedback request via the router settings page and I had an e-mail within an hour telling me to change 3 settings and it's put the SNR up to 9.6 dB which may have cured it, time will tell,

Any chance you could detail what the fix was? I'm having the exact same problem with mine.
