The connection drops happen a lot. Here’s someone who kept an eye long enough to see the process. 20/1 it’s probably the same for everyone else.
In reference to the errors an 10-15 second disconnects you can see this problem more clearly on an ADSL router. I have the same problem and the router shows ADSL UP, PPP connecting, CONNECTED IP ADDRESS ……then ADSL DOWN, basically the ASDL light just flashes on and off and stays on at most for around 30 seconds. this is even from the master socket in the house. When it does conenct I can browse at 2meg for about 10 seconds before the disconnect kicks in, what kind of equipment are these monkeys using? maybe they are using very old BT kit for the broadband.
What does this mean?
1. ADSL UP
2. PPP connecting
3. CONNECTED IP ADDRESS
4. ADSL DOWN
Essentially, the router is making a connection with the Talk Talk network. It’s negotiating and providing Talk Talk’s authentication kit with passwords and identifying information (so not just anyone can take advantage of this wonderful service.) It then receives its IP address and falls over. There’s been a lot of chatter here that just after PPP is CHAP authentication and that’s where it all goes a bit wrong.
For the non techies, think of it like a secret club. You walk to the door, do the special knock and give them the password. But, the secret club wants the password in French. You don’t know French. You’re then turned away, without entry.
