This morning I recieved my new Talk Talk modem, so I am going from a BT Voyager 105 to a HUAWEI SmartAX MT882.

The BT one was a dial up USB modem (but had broadband speeds etc) but the new one is a Broadband modem which connects via the ethernet cable or USB, but I have been reccomended to use the ethernet cable.

EVery 5 minutes or so, the connection keeps dropping and its really frustrating. I looked on the internet for how to solve it and it told me to turn off auto detect which I did, but the problem is still there.

I don't want to go back to the old modem, so does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Thanks

Post your stats attenuation, sync speed and noise margin from 192.168.1.1. There is also a setting that logs off after 10 mins of inactivity. This can be disabled to always on.

not one to alarm you, but the smart AX modem is not that good, i visited an EU the other day who had 4 sat by his socket. he had sames problems, when my test modem(voyager 105) was sat in sync for 20mins, and a phonecall to opal(the people who monitor talktalk's b/band equip) their tech told me that they cost 8P and are (insert own deroggatory remarks) needless to say my EU wasn't too happy about the equip he was provided with. plug your old voyager in and change it's dialer to your new login in credentials provided by talk talk.

The Huawei MT 882 uses a Conexant chipset and is a good general ADSL2+ router and firewall with no major issues. The main drawback is that it has only one ethernet port and one USB port. The MT882 can be set to g.dmt the same mode as a BT Voyager modem if necessary.

OK I've had the router in since I got the connection back up to 6MB (mentioned in my other thread) and the connection hasn't dropped once
