Broadband suddenly started dropping out

Hi there, Been a long time since I've needed to post here for some help, but ever since yesterday evening (or at least that's when I noticed it first) my fiber keeps dropping out randomly. Ive ran the BT troubleshooter, checked the line for noise and all the usual checks. 

Most of my computer/console equipment is wired to the hub via Ethernet, so it is not a wireless issue as far as I am aware.

Upon checking logs in the router, I can see that it has dropped 5 times since 20.24 last night.

The messages that come up in logs when it disconnects briefly, are:

:Connection to the Internet has been terminated.(Reboot,Reconfiguration,forced termination) or ppp1:Connection to the Internet has been terminated.(Reboot,Reconfiguration,forced termination)

Its strange because normally the broadband is stable and rarely disconnects.

Re: Broadband suddenly started dropping out

If you have already checked for line noise by doing quiet line test then try a factory reset of the hub by pressing the recessed button on back and holding 20/30 secs until lights flash

remember to turn off smart setup when hub restarts

if still no improvement then phone 150 and get engineer visit
