Hi, we have two seperate phone lines coming into the house with two different bill-payers etc etc etc, basically my dad pays for the main phone line and I (his son) pay for my own seperate one (internet hogger).
The main line disconnects on an almost daily basis, and cannot reconnect to the internet, sometimes for hours at a time. The second line appears fine all the time, and rarely ever disconnects.
Under the home hub page the ADSL is connected but under "internet" it just says connecting and this where it will stay for hours at a time before finally connecting and providing internet access.
When we got BB on this line we got a Home Hub 2, and I do have a HH3 which I have connected but it does the exact same thing as described above. I am fairly tech savvy so if there's anything i can try then feel free to suggest, unless it's BT's end where the problem lies.
here are some adsl stats, i noticed the FEC errors on the DL are high and increases with every page refresh:
Connection Information Line state Connected Connection time 0 days, 00:12:57 Downstream 7,008 Kbps Upstream 448 Kbps ADSL Settings VPI/VCI 0/38 Type PPPoA Modulation G.992.1 Annex A Latency type Interleaved Noise margin (Down/Up) 5.6 dB / 26.0 dB Line attenuation (Down/Up) 38.7 dB / 21.0 dB Output power (Down/Up) 10.7 dBm / 1.8 dBm Loss of Framing (Local/Remote) 0 / 0 Loss of Signal (Local/Remote) 0 / 0 Loss of Power (Local/Remote) 0 / 0 FEC Errors (Down/Up) 906 / 0 CRC Errors (Down/Up) 1 / 0 HEC Errors (Down/Up) 0 / 0 Error Seconds (Local/Remote) 1 / 0

Yeah it's connected to the master socket, however it is a very old style master socket.
It looks like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:LJ_Front.jpg with one these things above it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:GPO-plan4-telephone-socket-and-plug.jpg
Yeah the quiet line comes out quiet and everything connects via ethernet.
does your junction box look like the photo or is yours similar but without the socket
It has the same GPO logo on it, there is one cable which looks to come out of the back of it and into the socket and there is possibly some kind of connection on the left side. here's a picture of it that I just took: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/8438443/002.JPG
old junction box by look of amount of paint on it and I think the left is incoming BT cable from outside and the other is going to the socket which is your master - not a new NTE5 with test socket
Ah i see, i believe when the second line was installed a few months ago there was a junction box fitted in the loft, to seperate out the two lines from the cable coming into the house.
Would having effectively two junction boxes on this line be causing issues? Do you think it would be wise to request a new line and master socket? If it's possible to simply ask for a new one to be fitted.
I don't think the new junction box would cause the problem and your other line is working ok. The stats which you have posted look ok apart from your problem of dropping connection. normally though if continualy dropping connection you get a higher noise margin but yours is about the normal 6
