I'm with Plusnet on their Unlimited Fibre Extra. I changed their supplied router for the Draytek 2860 as I wanted more granular control over QoS, which has been working fine for what we need.
Now when there are no issues, I can connect up the 2860 and the broadband all comes online in a couple of minutes, so I know Plusnet specific settings are correct, but we live in an area where I know the local exchange have some issues and every now and again, especially in wet weather, the line drops.
The issue I've been having is the 2860 doesn't bring the broadband up again after this happens. What I've had to resort to is plugging the supplied Plusnet router in, which bring the line back up in a couple of minutes, then I can unplug and connect the 2860 back, and it connects again.
What settings do I need to look at, change, etc on the 2860 to see why this is happening? What allows the Plusnet router to connect, but not the 2860?
Thank you for any help.
