Since around 1pm yesterday, my connection has suddenly cut out. I currently am setup using the BT OpenReach Fibre Modem with a LAN connection into my Asus RT-AC66U router acting as the access point. Sadly after restoring to factory defaults on the router and switching both devices off for a period of time, there is still no connection and only the following messages are being thrown by the Asus Router:
"Timeout waiting for PADO packets"
No configuration has changed and was working all ok up until 1pm yesterday. Any suggesstions of what else I can do to try and diagnose? I know the router is not busted as connecting my phone as a WAN provider over USB works perfectly fine and the fact that it was a sudden loss of connectivity makes it bizzare.
Contacted BT for support and they have advised me there is nothing wrong with the line.
Did you re-enter the username and password on the ASUS after the factory reset? firstname.lastname@example.org and BT
Make a direct connection from your PC to the modem which will eliminate the router. Follow this guide to do that. Use your computer as normal to see if it connects. If it does not connect you will know it is a faulty modem or line.
Step 1: Remove the router from the modem
Step2: Connect your pc/laptop into the modem using LAN1 port
Step3: Open network and sharing centre on windows and click set up a new connection or network
Step4: Connect to the internet then click make a new connection Broadband PPPoE
Step5: Username email@example.com and the password as BT
Step6: connect, If it doesn't,keep pressing try again until it does.

Are there any alarm lights showing on the ONT (Fibre Modem). Lights on ONT
No the phone line and DSL lines are separate. Phone line is working all ok.
You mean optical fibre not DSL?
Its still looking like a network or router issue. Have you still got the home hub that BT supplied, so you can try that?
