Connection dropping every few minutes

My connection keeps dropping out, sometimes as frequently as every few minutes.


I had a new master socket installed earlier this year after a long saga of problems with my internet and phone, so presumably it is unlikely there is anything wrong with this.


(previous thread here:


I have checked the event log in my smart hub manager and the following messages seems to keep occuring:


dsl:VDSL Link Down: duration was 458 seconds


:Connection to the Internet has been terminated.(Reboot,Reconfiguration,forced termination)


:VLAN VLAN_DATA disconnected


:connection ATM_DATA disconnected.[ERROR_USER_DISCONNECT]


:connection ATM_TV disconnected.[ERROR_USER_DISCONNECT]


Can anyone explain what this means and how to fix it?

Re: Connection dropping every few minutes

Although you consider it unlikely there may be a problem with the new faceplate you still have to rule it out by connecting to the test socket. This will also rule out a problem with your internal wiring.


Also conduct a quiet line test on 17070 option 2, there should be no noise at all between announcements. If you find there is noise report a line fault without mentioning broadband.
