Auto reconnect

Is there an option to auto-reconnect when ADSL connection drops? My DM200 loses connection every 2-4hrs and is requiring a manual reboot as it doesnt automatically recover from the connection drop. I am currently using TPG Australia as my ISP. Connection type: ADSL 2+

Re: Auto reconnect

Thanks Michael for your response. Yes, Always On is already enabled at the time of encountering these issues. 

 

However, I just discovered a setting from TPG, according to it, the username should be xxx@PPP.tpg.com.au for dynamic ip assignment. After changing the username from plain xxx to xxx@PPP.tpg.com.au, the connection is ok now for about 30 hours and continuing.....

Yes.

 

Look for "Always On" for the Connection Mode on the Internet Setup page, which is where you feed in the login details for your ISP.

 

You might want to investigate why it drops the connection. Do you have a router in there? Is the DM200 in modem only (bridged) mode?

Sounds good.

 

Internet service providers love to make out lives difficult.
