Why does my link drop? Can I use dslstats?


[link to this post]
 
Apologies for the large log.

I'm with BT and the connection has been good. Currently connecting at approx 52Mbps. Over the last month the line has dropped and resynced a few times. It did this a few days ago. It tends to drop around 01:00. With my company saying work from home, a changed in IP means others need to update systems so my new IP is recognised.

A static IP may be one way forward but BT want me to recontract on Fibre 1 (no calls package) for £27.99 for 24 months - which looks good.

I have a Billion 8800NL R2 upstairs that maintains the connection and also a Netgear R7800 (downstairs) which is connected via cable to provide connectivity for TV etc plus provide better wifi coverage.

The log buffer in the 8800 seem to be short and I'm not sure I'm seeing all the messages. This is from the last restart. Nothing else in the log.

Does the above look normal? Is it DLM - so not really a problem with the line and sometihng that I will need to live with?

I've got the dlstats program and it works with the 8800. Would this provide better info as to what is happening if I left it running on my PC?

Thanks for the advice

Paul
