Contacted xnet tech desk, and was told a fault would be lodged to telecom for line issues. He said new modems have more a problem with line issues than older type modems. We shouldn't have much line problems as we live in a recently built area.
Its been having its moments, where it was connected without fault for many hours, and it continued on to today.....but has started to drop off again.
The only thing i've noticed on the modem is the Downstream Margin when it disconnects which sits at 2147483645db
PS: since typing this post up, the net has disconnected and reconnected about 7 times (at least)
