@newsfe4-win.ntli.net:

it sounds like a wiring / poor connection issue. if you can try
disconnecting everything past the master BT socket.


Wiring it ain't. When I said everything had been replaced several times I
meant EVERYTHING. Wires and all. When the problem is evident, nothing will
get the connection working. Not even plugging directly into the master
socket makes any difference.
My line loss statistics are pretty damn good when the connection is up and
we do not suffer from disconnects. The problem we have would appear to only
ocurr when the router is powered off and powered back on again. It is as
though the DSLAM at the exchange is holding the old connection open and
ignoring any attempts to establish a new one for a random length of time.
After a couple of hours on site today that was about all the BT engineer
could say (he turned up nearly an hour after the allocated timeslot and I'm
told he was somewhat rude at first and automatically assumed it was a
wiring problem because it was self install).

The worst part of it is that this is an intermittant problem with no
apparant pattern so there is bugger all chance of tracking it down. If I
could figure out some way to force the connection back when it goes down I
wouldn't mind so much but it really is a pain when it is off for hours on
end.
