Firstly I'm with Bigpipe on 100Mbps Fibre. Fibre was installed under Vodafone last year and we had no problems with the connection (we only left them because they kept stuffing up our bill).

 

So for the last few weeks the internet for all devices connected on wired and wireless networks get disconnected from the internet (still connected to the modem/router though) exactly every 4 hours for exactly 10 seconds before every is reconnected. We have not changed anything on our network (apart from maybe a couple of new devices connected), modem/router settings and cabling is all the same as it was on Vodafone. If I am loading a page in a web browser like Firefox it shows a Network Protocol error:

 

error

 

And Netflix and TVNZ On Demand show errors at the same time. I know the timing of disconnection exact because it shows up in the router logs as these events (IPs left in because it has changed since then):

I have contacted Bigpipe and they told me:
"the diagnostic on the Chorus ONT shows a historical timeline which has had zero optical interruptions. A number of things could cause this error, such as the modem losing connectivity to the ONT, or the ONT losing connection to the Chorus network, but this would reflect on our historical line test, and it hasn't. I cannot book a technician for a fibre connection where optical levels are perfect as Chorus will reject the fault. One more thing you can try is replacing the ethernet cable between the ONT and the modem."

 

I don't think it would be the ethernet cable from the ONT as it is a good quality Cat6 cable I only bought last year. I have tried rebooting the modem and updating its firmware to the latest version (as it was on quite an old version) but the dropouts still happen every 4 hours.

 

Because of the exact timing of the dropouts and the changing of public IP most disconnects, is this some kind of IP lease time issue?

Aredwood's correct - easy provisioning issue that should now be fixed. I'll have a chat with the person you've been speaking with just to let 'em know how to get that issue resolved.
