I have had a FritzBox 7340 vdsl router for 3 years and started to drop dsl connection so replaced it with ASUS-AC56U and issues solved and also speed is much better :)
But now having trouble connecting to my work vpn using the ASUS. I can connect to the VPN but I cannot RDP to any of the servers, also cannot ping any of the servers. It is as if the ASUS router is blocking the vpn connection. So I switched back to my old FritzBox and all good again, except for the intermittent connection drops off course. 


On the asus I disabled the firewall and also checked that all NAT passthrough's are enabled. By default PPPoE Relay was disabled. So I enabled that but no difference.


Any ideas what else I can try?

I got it resolved. Issue was the PPPoE Relay that was disabled. After enabling it, it did not make any difference, had to reboot the modem for changes to take affect (obviously... duh!!!)
