Problems with ERX20.Birningham4 again?

I lost connectivity and got the following odd error message when I went to the router and found my line was down:
[tt]Disconnected because idle timeout reached
[/tt]
Which is odd because I don't have any idle timeout set.
It tried to reconnect manually but it wouldn't have anything to do with it. I went to the route to reboot it and it connected.
Checking the router logs I saw:
[tt]Info Sep 11 19:45:23 PPP CHAP Chap receive success : authentication ok
Info Sep 11 19:45:23 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = pcl-ag02)
Info Sep 11 19:45:22 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ERX20.Birmingham4)
Info Sep 11 19:45:01 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ERX20.Birmingham4)
Info Sep 11 19:44:46 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ERX20.Birmingham4)
Info Sep 11 19:44:39 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ERX20.Birmingham4)[/tt]
So it looks like there are still problems.
What is going wrong with Plusnet? I keep getting hangs on my internet connection and sometimes its like syrup and now I get things like this.

It's more likely something to do with the BT backhaul I think rather than PN.
