Draytek Vigor 2860Vac


[link to this post]
 
Well I decided to get one of these from BroadbandBuyer as it has load balancing among other nice features, and in the past I've used Draytek with no issues (2620 I think it was, quite a number of years ago on ADSL2+). Well I've got the one mentioned in the subject and for a brief time it was connected to my VDSL2 connection. Unfortunately I've noticed it is rebooting at random intervals (e.g. between every 5 to 45 minutes). I have a block of 8 IP's from Zen which I setup on this with ease. I love the fact it supports both running LAN IP's and routed WAN IP's at the same time, as not many routers support this frown.

Things I've done so far:
- Updated firmware
- Changed modem code choice
- Changed RJ45 cables
- Changed RJ11 cable
- Changed filter
- Plugged directly into mains instead of my online UPS
- Changed power supply plug
- Disabled VOIP, VPN and other unused features
- Limited myself to only plugging a single RJ45 cable in
- Not plugged RJ11 cable in at all
- Disabled wireless entirely
- Disabled IPv6

None of the above has helped unfortunately. Has anyone here used this device and/or experienced or at least heard of this happening? If so, any solutions?

I read somewhere about disabling upnp is the answer, but I haven't tried this yet.

Any help appreciated, thanks in advance.

Well I've managed to solve the problem I believe, the only mystery I'm left with is why my VDSL2 connection has an INP of 1.5 and a delay of 8.00ms when my HG612 and Fritz!Box 7490 didn't report this (pure fastpath). Any thoughts?

Note: The far end stats must be going by the DSLAM's cumulative numbers since the port was first enabled.

As you can see, 8.00ms delay with 1.5 INP on the downstream. I don't think DLM even uses that level of INP anyway (minimum I've seen is maybe 2, but definitely 3 for sure).

EDIT: I'm confused, the far end stats must be upstream surely, so why is the downstream saying interleaving depth of 1039 if infact the far end has cumulative stats from the DSLAM (which normally would be from the upstream? Maybe it's the time of morning that's set in my confusion.
