Strange problem I have been having for months now, running an RB951G-2HnD attached to a TPLINK ADSL modem. Using pppoe client on router. Running wireless network and rest of ports bridged. All runs fine except when PPP connection drops for whatever reason I have to manually bring it back up by ssh'ing in and running the following commands to firstly bring up the ppp interface and then change the out-interface back to pppoe-out1 as it reverts to ether1-gateway when the PPP connection drops.
I have had a look around this forum but can't find anyone with this exact problem. No doubt a configuration issue and an error on my part but could someone point me in the direction of a solution? This "fix" isn't exactly wife friendly and when the connection drops she can't fix when I'm away!
Tried setting a static default route in case that was it but it had no effect. The only line in the logs relating to the PPP connection being dropped is something about
I certainly didn't request it to drop
Code: Select all
pppoe-out1: terminating.. - administrator request
Thanks in advance.
