TP-LINK TD-W8980 dropping PPP connection under load?

[link to this post]

I'm having a weird issue where my PPP connection will drop, claim to reconnect, but leave me with no access to the internet unless I turn off my router for 5-10mins, and then turn it back on again.

I'm using a TP-LINK TD-W8980, and was wondering if anyone else had seen a similar issue?

Usually my internet connection is stable, but there's a certain application that I can use to make my PPP connection drop with 100% reproducibility. Said application is trying to download 3GB using 8 simultaneous connections, and will get somewhere between 300 - 700MB through the download before my connection drops.

This might be an ISP issue rather than a hardware issue, as it seems the PPP drop is in response to an LCP TermReq message, however I'm just trying to rule things out at this stage frown
