Timeout waiting for PADO packets

Since about 8pm last night I've had no internet connection. My router shows the error 'ppp0 Timeout waiting for PADO packets'. I think the same thing may have happened at the weekend, but that time the connection was back on the following morning and today it's still not connected.

 

Any suggestions for how to fix this? I tried re-booting my router but no joy.

You may have a stale session which requires a member of staff at Plusnet to sort out. 

 

Or it could be a real fault. As it is happening regularly (twice now is regular in my books), it is time to chat/phone with Plusnet.

Yer, I tried a chat but I'm at work now so they weren't interested. I'll try them again when I'm at home.

"They weren't interested"

 

Not very good is it?

Re: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

I guess they wanted me to run through some tests or something that would require me to present? If it's like last time it may well be working when I get back though...

Re: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

I can see the chat you had earlier today, the agent sounded like he wanted to go through troubleshooting when you were at the property, but he could have given you the troubleshooting guide or some instructions instead of just sending you on your way.

 

As it's an FTTP service, it's worth checking the connections and powercycling the router to see if that helps. If not go through the faults report here and we'll get that picked up. https://faults.plus.net

Re: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

Unfortunately I fail at the first hurdle on the broadband troubleshooter because the phone number on record for my account is the phone number for my old property, and since I'm now FTTP-only at my current place, I do not have a phone number to replace it with...

Re: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

I've zero'd out the phone number and double checked with a few people. If you can just click through confirming that is your number, it should actually run the checks on the BBEU on the account, which is connected to your FTTP asset. Apologies for any confusion.

Re: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

Apologies that I'd overlooked that. It appears our suppliers didn't close the order off when your services were working and then cancelled the order when an appointment wasn't booked in (Despite the fact no appointment was needed Huh)

I'll get an order placed right away and it should hopefully be back online by tomorrow for you.
