I've been a customer since 2015 and have used a DSL-AC68U since joining which has always been stable.
My contract was recently due for renewal and before proceeding I was reading through the forums and noticed quite a lot of criticism of the DSL-AC68U.
So when processing my contract renewal I decided to get a Plusnet Hub Two just in case despite not having had any issues with the Asus since 2015.
My contact renewed on 7th September. On the morning of 8th September I woke up to no internet. I spoke with support and they said it was a sync issue which would need an engineer.
I've been away for a long weekend so haven't been able to investigate further. On return the Plusnet Hub Two had arrived so I connected it this evening service is restored.
I'm not completely against replacing the Asus or using the Asus in bridge mode alongside the Plusnet Hub Two but it seems a bit coincidental that it would stop working on the day of renewal.
Any ideas what could have happened to stop it connecting?
Re: DSL-AC68U disconnects
Have you changed the account password by any chance ?
The Asus would have stayed connected until the connection dropped. Its possible that the account change forced a drop which meant that the Asus failed to reconnect. The Hub 2 would autoconfigure and get the new password.
