I always have RouterStats (lite version) running on my PC to keep an eye on things.
PC (Windows 10) wired connection to TP-Link TD-W8960N.
Usually pretty stable ADSL2+ connection (partial LLU Uno broadband). Around 11.8 mbps sync.
All of a sudden I've started to see RouterSats reporting what look like 5-10 minute disconnections (IE. Noise Margin and connection speed on the graphs drop to zero) several times a day. But strange thing is that I can still browse the internet etc. during these "outages"!!! When it comes back to life, the connection speed is identical (11,844kbps) so definitely not loosing sync, as you would think the speed would be slightly different (it always has been if it re-boots for say a power cut etc.).
So it looks like RouterStats has stopped communication with my router for some reason. Also if I try and go to the Routers home page during one of these apparent "outages" I can't connect and get it's home page up.
System has been fine for the last several months and nothing major has changed recently.
Tried re-booting PC. Still does it.
Re-booted Router and that "appeared" to fix it for a couple of days. But now it's back.
Tried a different port on the router. Still the same.
Installed latest copy of RouterStats lite and still the same.
Wondering if it's the Router showing the first stages of failing!
Very odd. Not sure if it's anything to worry about really?
Any suggestions / comments folks?
