port error? you mean they said port drops? every time l had disconnections EurISP told me they were port drops which meant it was something to do with my router.. havent really found much information that says its wrong or right assumption tho.
Cheers, this is what i was sent: (nothing personal in here, so i believe its fine to post)
At 10:30pm last night, a session you had maintained for some 230+ hours was dropped: looking at the connection logs, this was due to a 'port error' - ie, the connection failed not because you requested the service be dropped and not because we had disconnected you - rather something came between your router and our network to cause the session to be lost - perhaps noise on your phone line?
Worryingly, there have been a handful of disconnections since that drop, all listed on the whole as 'port error' for the cause.
The odd thing is that i didnt notice anything dramatically different (from the typical bad speeds im currently having) at 10.30pm... It was only at 2am that i lost ppp auth and it was gone completely. I then only managed to get on again using pppoe this morning before work. Ill check phone for 'noise' when i go home. Guess ill check my router line numbers as well.
