PPPoE / DSL Connection has become unreliable

Since switching to Plusnet back in July, I've had a very stable and fast internet connection until recently.  Over the past week we've been experiencing a number of drop-outs which is very frustrating.


I'm running the provided modem/router and nothing has changed about our setup since installing it.


Router details:

1. Product name:Plusnet Hub
2. Serial number:+081441+NQ90272986
3. Firmware version:Software version Last updated 01/07/19
4. Board version:Plusnet Hub One
5. DSL uptime:0 days, 21:40:22
6. Data rate:19978 / 79904
7. Maximum data rate:28945 / 94182
8. Noise margin:10.9 / 9.8
9. Line attenuation:12.5 / 13.2
10. Signal attenuation:12.4 / 13.2


I've also attached the WAN and Boot logs from the router.

I'm seeing repeated instances of the line:

PPP LCP Send Termination Request [User request]

And you can see from the logs that the uptime between restarts isn't brilliant.


Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there and sorry to see that there's an issue. 


I've just performed some diagnostic tests on the line and they didn't reveal any obvious causes for the issue. 


It would be best to try following the checks here next:


If it's still an issue once those are out of the way you can report a fault with us over at http://faults,


Please let us know how you get on so I can follow things up with you.
