I've been away overseas for a while and during that time the Mrs has said the internet isn't working.
I fully expected to come back and reset the ONT and router and everything would be hunky dory, technology tends to just hate her.

Reseting either the ONT or router sometimes resulted in a small period of internet but usually no longer than a minute.

Before I spend some time on the phone with 2degrees I was wondering if it was possible to determine if the problem is more likely to be a router issue (my problem) or a isp problem. I'm using an "aftermarket" router so I'm not sure 2degrees could be much help if the problem is in my network.
I don't have a spare router handy but I do have these logs (hopefully attached) from my Asus rt-ax82u that seem to show the modem hanging up on me? Are these logs useful at all? Or should I just call 2degrees?

It seems to do this over and over:

You need to change WAN interface config to DHCP (rather than PPPoE) with vlan id=10.

The router had authenticated with both PPP and DHCP, kicked both and we're back online with 1 session and Evilsteve has confirmed his internet access has restored. Pm'd the user to double check settings of the router, agree with Spyware to just use DHCP.
