Is anyone using this modem getting weird error stats on the statistics page?

I can refresh the page, and the values will reset to zero. Next refresh will show another set of numbers. See screens below for examples.

Also, I don't think the attenuation stats are correct - the previous ADSL2+ modem reported 6.5dB download, and I see the upload now is unrealistically high...

Yeah the stats on this modem are f*cked, I've just given up asking for them to fix them. But to be honest, if you plan on using this modem, the incorrect stats will probably be the least of your worries. I'd advice you to replace this with a decent router, this one is absolutely useless.

i use this modem in bridge mode with pfsense on my old netbook... it works OKAY...

but sometimes maybe once every 2 days the ppp interface will disconnect, not sure if the problem is with pfsense or slingshots modem but it sure is annoying, i'll be pestering father moneybags to buy me a new one soon :)

Modem seems to work fine for me in bridged, 7 days stable atm, connected to an RT-N66u. Would have a much higher uptime if I didn't mess around with my router so much! Haha - Had just over a month stable previously, the modem does hiccup every now and then and requires a restart, but not that often for me.
