Re: NOT TO DO. Weird instalations?

Is there a point to the CD's?

Re: L2TP Receive Errors

We changed the interfaces to a PPTP client and the error rate went to zero, dropped the MRU and the throughput went up.

May be upstream provider is eating L2TP traffic for some reason?

Re: Rb433 power off and dont back.

Do they all drop at the same time? Create a Netwatch to email you or log when they go down if your not sure.

I would suggest putting them on separate UPS, just for testing. If that doesn't work you may want to try different PSU.

I wish I could offer more suggestions.

Is this problem caused by upgrading past 3.0 or does it only occur on some boards? I have more than a few of these that don't seem to have this problem, but I don't think any of them are upgraded past 3.0.
