Recently got FTTC deployed by Openreach, so nice to go from 2mb to 40. Rather than use the ISP's 'basic' router I bought a second hand Draytek 2760 on Ebay.
First month everything was fine, suddenly started seeing line drops and after three OR engineer visits I feel I'm in a bit of a tight spot.
Draytek router the other day would be fine for a few hours, then it may suddenly lose sync 2/3 or maybe 4 times in an hour. When I first had issues I plugged in the ISP's router and I noticed not only did it drop from time to time, throughput was terrible.
This time around I've repeated that exercise, now the ISP router is syncing slower but looks to be remaining solid for approx 24 hours. It has yet not to drop for two days.
Speaking with someone at the ISP, they can see errors on the line. OR struggle to see a problem. What can I do? Is the Draytek at fault? I have one of the new master sockets so no filter is required. Do I go and purchase another router? Seriously the ISP one is bad, can't even enable ping on the WAN and cannot get dynamic DNS to work.
Any suggestions welcome.
Before I forget, Draytek SNR would normally range between 4/5/6 and the ISP router is now at 4.4 but yesterday was at 6.5.
