So far tonight, since about 10.30, my line has started to play up. It keeps dropping out for a few seconds, every 5-30 seconds. Did some ping tests, they would occasionaly time out, then carry on as normal. I suspected it might of been my modem so i did some pings to that also, but they turned out fine. So as far as i can tell, something is wrong with my net.

Note: I get the same results from all sites i have tested

Have you got interleaving on or off?
I would imagine if its line noise, the whole connection would drop for a minute or more while the DSL resyncs

If noise is not too bad it may not resync every time, does the modem datarate slow down at all? Do the stats list any CRC or other errors?
