      Angry LCP Down

      My first post. Wow, and it's about random disconnections, which I can handle once of twice but think things are getting worse. Here's a partial dump of my netgear router log file to give you an idea:
      Code:
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:16:40 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:16:40 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:17:11 - CHAP authentication success
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:17:37 - LCP down.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:17:44 - Initialize LCP.

      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:19:45 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:20:36 - CHAP authentication success
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:20:45 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:20:45 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:32:49 - LCP down.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:32:57 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:32:57 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:33:57 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:33:57 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:34:57 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:34:57 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:35:56 - CHAP authentication success
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:35:57 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:35:57 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:36:57 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:36:57 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:37:26 - CHAP authentication success
      Sat, 2007-10-20 04:39:28 - LCP down.
      <snip> and repeat about 100 times!
      Finally managed stable connection at around 4pm:
      Code:
      Sat, 2007-10-20 16:10:24 - Initialize LCP.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 16:10:24 - LCP is allowed to come up.
      Sat, 2007-10-20 16:10:43 - CHAP authentication success
      Was previously with Plus.net and had rock steady connections, although I'm in a different house now, so think my computer hardware is fine. Must question the telephone cabling/sky service.

      Any advice greatfully received...

      Thanks,
      Chris

      Re: LCP Down

      just out of interest, what do your detailed stats look like? are there lots of errors ?

      may have nothing to do with "LCP down"

      Re: LCP Down

      you do seem to have a fair few errors, you could try plugging into the test socket (behind face plate of mastersocket)
      this may help with your errors (may help with the LCP, as errors may have been causing problems when router trys to connect, please do not quote me as i have no idear if these were causing the problem)

      some other helpful soul may have more info
