I’m having big problems with my TalkTalk internet connection. I connect via a Netgear DG834GT and have used this for the past 6 months with no problems. I’d get the occasional drop out every week or so but all I had to do was go into the Netgear’s admin screen, go into connection status and click connect. My problem started on Christmas morning, I tried the internet as usual but there was no connection. Clicking on the reconnect button in connection status did nothing, the only way to get back on was to re-power the Netgear route. The trouble is it only allows connects for approx 5 minutes then fails, and you have to re-power the router again to get connected? I’ve installed the latest firmware onto the router but the problem remains. This smells like a change in the exchange to me? Someone working over Christmas and changing kit etc. I get the following fault: - Negotiation – LCP Down I then try and click reconnect but get nothing. The internet connection light on the front of the router also goes out. It seems funny that there seems to be a constant connection because every time I re-power the router I always reconnect.
I wasn't being rude, I only get about five minutes internet time before it crashes and I might not get a connection again for hours! I didn't expect an answer withing minutes, it's taken me all evening to get a connection again and I've only time to download this page and it once again crashes.
I don't mind calling TalkTalk but from what I've been told it's a very long process and they aren't really interested so I thought I'd ask on a few sites first.
If anyone has any Ideas or setting I could try I would be greatful.
