We're still having ongoing connection problems (ie. connection dropping every few minutes to every few hours - go to end of this thread http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/favlinker.php?Entry... and I'm trying to understand the significance of some of the stats, in particular Error Seconds.

I restarted the router at 30/12/2012 12:26 to reset the stats, and now, at 12:41 we've had 59 error seconds. ie. 6.5%.
In those 15 minutes the connection dropped three times.
Is this likely to be caused by problems with our line to the exchange?
Edit @ 12:47 - six mins later and another disconnect and the the error seconds are now:
Error Seconds 79 11
