Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

I experienced a similar issue, with my PN One hub (Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.237.2.2 | Last updated 15/04/18) showing a blue light and in hub manager shows as 'connected'; the broadband user name seems to have defaulted back to 'setup@plusdsl.net' after what seems to have been a remote hub management session -

I have also been experiencing random intermittent disconnects during the day, which has been annoying, but not yet at the level where I can find the will to call customer support, and jump through all the hoops in the faultfinding flowchart.

I initially used a BT Home hub 5 configured with my PN BB user details until it started disconnecting constantly, and am starting to wonder if I would be better off with a completely different provider and commercially available vdsl modem router.

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Sorry to hear you're having issues.

It looks like your router details was deleted from our management system which means its running a older firmware which has issues with lines that have what's known as a low SNR

I've readded the router to the system and if you factory reset it using the pinhole on the back you should have the new firmware within 48 hours

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Hi Matthew

The factory reset does not appear to have made any difference. What is the most up to date firmware version number?

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Sorry to hear this.

I've asked a colleague if we can push out the latest firmware for you manually as you haven't received it automatically.

Hopefully this should be done in the next 24 to 48 hours

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Hi Matthew

if anyone has tried a manual update, it hasn't worked.

Today between 10:00 and 12:30 my broadband has dropped 11 times, as you can see from the attached doc.

I have raised a fault with technical support.

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Hi there.

Sorry to hear your connection is still dropping.

Just to make sure that the firmware update has been done, could you find out what firmware your router is running on now please?

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.237.2.2 | Last updated 15/04/18, same as before.

I believe the most recent version is 4.7.5.1.83.8.259, according to PlusNet Customer Support; I had an email following my call to raise a fault - which included the advice below. I should add that trying the link results in

 

Hmmm... cannot reach this page

Try this

There was a temporary DNS error. Try refreshing the page.

Error Code: INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND

 

If an update is required, this can be done via Ask Products (http://teamsites.plus.net/tm/Products/SitePages/Ask%20Products.aspx)  However, to set expectations appropriately, firmware updates are generally only for a specific issue and don�t tend to improve performance of the device.

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Hi @LoanRanger,

I'm sorry to see that you've been sent that link, as it is for an internal site and not for customer use. I have raised this back to our Products Team to look into pushing the latest firmware update out to the router.

@LoanRanger, can you message me the serial number and MAC address of your device please, because I've a suspicion it's not correctly associated with your account?

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Line has been rock solid for 3 days since the firmware upgrade, no intermittent disconnection and no drop in data rate as a trade-off for stability.

If anything changes I will update this thread, but I have a feeling that the problem is resolved since prior to this I could hardly get through 24 hours without at least 1 random disconnect, and generally more than 1 a day.

Big thanks to the PlusNet staff on the forum.

Since 05/11/18, router has only dropped on the 9th, 15th, 20th and 27th. Which is probably good enough for me.

Re: Router defaulted to setup@plusdsl.net and intermittent drops

Hi @LoanRanger,

 

Thank you for getting back in touch. I'm glad to hear that the connection drops have settled down and that these are now in line with what we'd expect.


Please let us know if you start experiencing frequent drops again or if there's anything else you'd like to discuss.
