I keep loosing PPPOE on a BT Infinity broadband service. It drops about every two weeks.
I’m using a Surf Soho connected via TP- Link router configured in pure bridge mode as a modem. I have also tried a Netgear DM200.
The surf SoHo shows no PPPOE.
Rebooting the SoHo and/or the TP link makes no difference however if i connect the BT supplied HomeHub the service connects immediately.
If I leave the BT HomeHub connected for 2+ hours and then replace it with the SoHo-TP Link combination it works fine for about two weeks.
Does anybody know if BT runs a routine with the Homehub to automatically correct line problems?
I have been told that BT does use a routine to optimize the line performance with their Homehubs,
It may not be related but I have tried to configure the Surf SoHo to use OpenDNS rather than BT but
the internet connection just hangs and won’t connect.
Any help would be appreciated.
