Hey All,
We had a power cut today, got everything back online without an issue.

However my router has hard locked up 3-4 times - comes online, gets PPP, works for a while, then locks. Lights on the front stop flashing, then does nothing, then resets.

It has been stable for about 20 minutes now, but a bit odd.

Has anyone else seen this? 

Can't catch anything in the logs (and they clear at reboot).

Try a hard reset of the modem and see how it goes. =-)

Yeah did that and had a lockup shortly after.
looks to have been stable overnight - just really weird.

Mine locks up under load of high numbers of current sessions. Tried resets, replacement, no improvement, I just put it down to "Can't handle the load".

Yup, same, that's why I'm trying to get the Vigor 130 working, but so far, the TG locking up occasionally is better for my needs :/

Asus will have a DSL-N66U out soon which supports VDSL, and will likely be my next move if it's available here before we get fibre available next year lol.
