      Modem: Aztech DSL5068EN(1T1R)


      Any idea/clue/hint what causes this?


      The issue starts with,

      1. Internet connection suddenly dropping, streams stop, I get dc'd from any online activity, etc
      2. 1-2 minutes in, internet LED changes to red while DSL light remains steady green
      3. About 3-4 minutes later, the DSL LED would start blinking. then would start trying to reconnect
      4. DSL LED becomes steady green
      5. Internet LED stays red for couple more minutes until it goes back to green


      I encountered this issue almost always after changing modem from Prolink to Aztech. After the change, the issue would occur around 4-5 times per day.

      I reported and got technician to give me a new PPPoE username and password because they said it seemed as if my old PPPoE username was duplicated. And that someone was using my username to login which was causing the conflict and disconnecting my session. I paraphrased but those were the keywords they used. "duplicated, used for testing, session"


      The new PPPoE username did help but it only reduced the occurrence to 1-2 a day.


      Is this an issue isolated to Aztech modems? Anyone else experience this?
