New connection, unstable connection with Asus DSL-N66U

Hello Guys

After a much up in ordering, I reciever a ADSL router for my fibre connection. Luckily I have a N66U handy and the PlusNet team were helpful in setting it up.

It is running now, but I have noticed the DSL light is never stable! In fact the connection keeps dropping and I cannot do anything live.

Streaming is not an issue as by the time buffer is used up the connection is restored.

Other than that I cannot seam to do anything, something as simple as screen sharing is not possible.

Any ideas as to what it could be? We had used the auto setup on the router, plugging in pop user details.

My logs are filled with the following...

Re: New connection, unstable connection with Asus DSL-N66U

As this is a new fibre line, there may be a fault.

 

Also the DSL-N66u has a history of compatibility problems with some VDSL lines.  I would try another fibre modem to see whether the problem clears up.

 

The DSL-N66u has a WAN port, so you could try using a Openreach modem as a low cost option if you want to keep using the Asus.

 

If you do not have a VDSL filtered face plate, have you tried your router plugged into the Test socket?
