Bletch: I'm in Lower Hutt - connection went down around 10:30, and came back up a few minutes ago. The errors appear to have been ppp-related (unable to connect to PPPoA server, or PPP authentication failed). The DSL connection was rock solid the entire time.
Yeah it appears to be PPP related - my DSL connection was good and solid as well - I did try and reboot my router and everyting the DSL syncs up nicely - only PPP session won't come up. Got an error about no PAP auth response.
So it looks like there was something wrong with the PPP session.
And hopefully it's just an isolatred incident.
