      LCP Down

      For the first time in 3 weeks of great service, tonight I have been disconnected several times and seen my download speed drop from 15876 kbps to 1667 kbps

      This is the output from the router: -

      Wed, 2006-12-13 21:44:42 - Initialize LCP.

      Re: LCP Down

      i constantly get this problem where broadband refuses to connect, currently every 15 minutes it just fails and i get the same script, numerous complaints to agents sat in fornt of a screen who havent got a clue what they're talking about and care even less, can anyone offer any help on this before the net gear router meets with a hammer, or do i just cancel sky altogether and return to BT

      Re: LCP Down

      LCP (Link Control Protocol) put simply is the widget that checks if the line is OK to transfer data, if it is OK it comes up and allows the connection, if there is a problem it will go down then try again. There are a lot of things that can cause it to go down bad lines mainly. One thing that can cause it is a malfunctioning filter, so try changing your filter and see if there is any difference. Looking at your detailed stats may show you have too many errors on the line, as a forum search will show, some of these can be fixed by you, others are down to BT.
