DrayteK & BT Openreach Fibre modem

I have an odd problem. My internet drops connection for a few seconds every hour about the same time  21 mins past the hour. 
The Draytek Vigor 2860 is piggy backing the BT Openreach modem
It has a wireless  AP plugged in, an  Ethernet to a PC right next to  to modem and Ethernet to power plugs downstairs. The wireless AP is on all the time and I only ever have one Ethernet in use  at any given time - mostly its just  WIFI.  We have tried extending LEASE time on the Draytek  but that hasn't worked I still get the the disconnections. I am told by Plusnet that the connection has been ok for at least 21 days. (it will now show a disconnect as we rebooted today)
Question .. does the BT  Openreach Fiber modem have lease time too?  It is driving me crazy that the connection to all my devices drop hourly.

Please SSH to the router and provide the logs for a few minutes after and before the drop.

Reset the Draytek to factory default and re-configured. Seems to have solved it...touch wood.
