Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

Hello folks

Been getting dropouts several times a day for the last week. Reconnection happens within a few minutes, but it is still pretty infuriating.

I checked the Event Log in my Hub Manager (I have a Hub One) and I had lots going on there, very little of which I can understand!

Any thoughts on this? Am I in peril?

 

Thanks.

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

@thurrafork Don't worry about those IN BLOCK reports - that is just the router doing what it is supposed to do - blocking incoming requests from sites not allowed to access your local network.

As regards the drops, they would be of much more concern to me. Can you post the connection stats, obscuring any personally identifiable data?

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

Thanks for responding jab1

When you ask for Connection Stats, what exactly do you mean?

I imagined that all the connect/disconnect info was buried in that Event Log that I posted.

So there's no obvious connection between that splurge of Event Log info and disconnections?

 

Thanks

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

@thurrafork Sorry, didn't explain my self very well there did I?

The 'connection stats' I was referring to are accessed from the 'Troubleshooting' tab on your router - IIRC they are the far right tab under that setting, but I'm not sure as I have never used that router.

There is no connection at all between those two events.

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

Hmmm... The far right tab under Troubleshooting is the Event Log I posted before.

There's only 1 'Connection' tab that I can find (under Advanced Settings>Broadband>Connection) but that doesn't seem to give any useful info...

Connection Information

Line state: Connected
Connection time: 0 days, 01:46:18
Downstream: 79.89 Mbps
Upstream: 19.14 Mbps

 

Is what you're asking for info about DNS, Gateway, IP address - that kind of thing?

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

On a Hub 1 the router stats can be found in the Troubleshooting->Helpdesk tab.

OK - I did say I wasn't sure about where the information was, but to use my routers data, just to show what yours should resemble:

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

Gotcha! Thank you!

And now a very naive question: What of the information there should I block out before posting on a public forum?

For example, is MAC address essential information that you need, or should I block it out?

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

I can't remember the line numbers offhand - but your IP, router name &c.

If you post, then keep your eyes open for my reply, we'll see if you post anything personal inside the edit window so you can edit it out.

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

@thurrafork In your opening post you mentioned having dropouts 'several times a day', presumably like the ones recorded between 16.49.11 and 16.51.18 in your router log in the first screenshot?

This needs investigating, but should be posted on the 'Fibre' board, where people who have the experience can help - I'm afraid I can't, and the amount of personal troubleshooting you can do is somewhat more restricted than is possible on an ADSL connection.

Re: Remote Administration, and other stuff in router event log.

Ok. Thanks for your help anyway!

The reason I posted here in the 'Router' forum was the because the crux of my concern at the time was the deluge of stuff in the Hub Manager Event Log.

I was worried that there was an unusual amount of... I don't know... attacks(?) going on.

I've looked at the Event Log in the past and there was never this much incident. After all, that great sprawl of log information I posted in my first post all occurred within two and a half hours. Is that normal?

I thought the disconnects may have occurred as a consequence of the router fighting of this barrage of attempts. Or something. I really don't know about this stuff!

But if you can assure me that this log does not communicate anything alarming, and also that it does not give a clue as to the reasons of the disconnection, then yes I will ask more simply about the disconnects in another forum.

 

Thanks
