Hi, I am getting disconnects for just a few minutes several times a day on this newly installed 2701.  I have tried an upstream MTU of both 1500 (the default) and 1492.  Can anyone help with this or is it just another case of a faulty unit:

Type Date/Time Event Description

cwmd:  retried session started, server: '', event code(s): '0 BOOTSTRAP'

cwmd:  httpc_poll_dispatch - Connection timed out

cwmd:  session failed...

cwmd:  session will be retried in 257244(ms)

The system log entry is above.

I have not seen an answer to this problem, and as I am having the same thing happen, wondered if anyone has solved this.

Original log entries are as before:
WRN 2011-03-10T15:15:01+13:00 cwmd:  session timed out...
INF 2011-03-10T15:15:01+13:00 cwmd:  session will be retried in 194173(ms)
INF 2011-03-10T15:18:31+13:00 cwmd:  retried session started, server: '', event code(s): '0 BOOTSTRAP'

Now they have changed to:
WRN  2011-03-17T14:37:38+13:00  cwmd:  authentication has already been tried once and we still don't get in
WRN  2011-03-17T14:37:38+13:00  cwmd:  session failed...
INF  2011-03-17T14:37:39+13:00  cwmd:  dns query on retry 1855
INF  2011-03-17T14:37:39+13:00  cwmd:  session will be retried in 227786(ms)
INF  2011-03-17T14:41:36+13:00  cwmd:  retried session started, server: '', event code(s): '0 BOOTSTRAP'

That suggests it might be a Telecom thing.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

Hi, so are these dropping just PPP or DSL signal also, what are the line stats on your modems.

In the end I just replaced mine with a cheap ADSL2+ modem/router as I really can't be bothered with gear that just doesn't work.  Rock solid now on the same connection.
