After over a year of stable service the last two weeks I have had repeated drops and resets of my BT Hub4
In the log at each reset it says (57427.030000) PPP LCP Send Termination Request [User request]
Can be 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 mins apart or can be up for 10 hours.

Noise levels look good and are / have been consistent at that level for over a year.
No notiicable noise when I do a quiet line test.
Any ideas anyone?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Great to hear from you again - it's been a long time - I hope you are well.
So it is a standalone master socket - only used for broadband - no phone attached at all, and no extentions.
I do not use any wireless so that is all disabled - just a single fixed line with static IP address.
At 9:50am this morning I did a factory reset on the HH4 to eliminate any possible config issue on the hub. It has dropped/reset 14 times today since then.
Speed has now dropped to connect speed of 2.2Mb/s - previously was approx 3.7 or even higher.
Noise levels still static @

I am now thinking this is a line fault as I have tried everything else. The only thing left to try is to swap over my two broadband routers (I have two lines into the house) as see if the fault follows the router or sticks on the line. But I am pretty sure I know what the answer will be.
The copper line from my property to the connection point on the post about 100m away is relatively new (<2 yrs) and was the thicker 1mm copper, so I am thinking tree rub at this end is unlikely.
Only other thing I can think of is that we had a lightning storm here in July - and that could have blown the master socket itself.
What do you think?
Thanks for getting back @daidoc,
All well here thanks. You could be onto something re. line fault. I'll be able to check that for you. Drop me over an email with the details and we'll take it from there. You'll find the contact link in my profile.
This is still an on-going issue, unfortunately it is intermittent and appears weather related.
In the light storm yesterday the logs showed the line dropping about 10 times per 30 minute (unfortunately the log cannot record any more than that so I cant tell you per hour or per day - but it is a lot).
It has settled slightly this mroning but unfortunately the line is so slow it is now completely unusable.
I tried to raise an incident about this 2 days ago but have not heard anything, ([Incident:xxxxxxx-xxx064)
Moderators - Please help - as the only other course of action I have available is to battle with the India call centre script readers, and i would rather eat coal.
Hello once again,
Unfortunately the next storm has arrived and the line fault has returned - broadband dropped to 100k - more resets than I can count.
Massive crackling on the line making even phone calls impossible.
Moderators - Please help - Robbie was dealing with this and has all the history .
Thanks for your post and welcome back!
