Re: Connection died

What died - you will need to be much more explicit
For example
Connection to BF3 server
Connection from PC to router
PPP session on router
Connection to broadband
Have you checked the router log

Re: Connection died

Was the router still connected to the broadband - which lights were red - or did you just  lose the connection to Plusnet
Have you looked at the router log

Re: Connection died

It is possible that Plusnet changed their copy of the IP profile rate - this causes the PPP to drop and it may be it took a while to re-establish
This should show up in the router log which you haven't posted

Re: Connection died

I can see the disconnection you are reffering to, not sure why this disconnected. Nothing has changed with your profile.
It seems as though it was just the one disconnection and nothing to worry about, unfortunately it came at a time when you were having a good game  Wink
