Uh-oh...how old is the router? And have you got login timeout set in the router after no supposed activity on the line, or is it set to zero so it never disconnects?

Yeah, I would check "Basic Settings -> Idle Timeout (In Minutes)" = 0 in your configuration windows for a DG834.

I have not yet got able to test mine on plus yet still waiting on the migration but I know from experience that the DG834 is a nice router works well here.

there was a dodgy batch at one point and I think some firmwares were causing problems also there was a problem with the DG834 disconnecting randomly due to the PN servers not respoding to the routers requests quick enough
