So my connection was flakey for most of the beginning part of the last week where I experienced a fair few disconnects, then on Thursday I lost connection to the internet.
The router (white Netcomm NFV4) would establish DSL connection, confirm upstream and downstream but not connect to the internet.
Test your eth0 connection: PASS
Test you Wireless connection: PASS
Test ADSL Synchronization: PASS
Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: PASS
Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: PASS
Test PPP server session: PASS
Test authentication with ISP: FAIL
Test the assigned IP Address: PASS
Ping default gateway: FAIL
Ping Primary DNS: FAIL
eventually the router reboots and repeats the very same process.
Side-note - with this being the white modem, the username is firstname.lastname@example.org and I have no idea what the password is, whatever the factory default sets it to is what I have always used.....so this isnt me changing something and causing a problem.
I called Orcon and was t old someone would investigate...eventually on Monday I received an email stating that it had been raised to Chorus who had 'resolved' the issue. That evening I got home and my connection stayed alive for about 2 hours before reverting to t he same problem above. I called Orcon again but it has been silence since then, so I'm now a week without Internet and I have no idea why.
Is anyone else experiencing this or any similar problem and actually knows what the issue is?
