Smoothwall ADSL disconnecting


I am running Smoothwall with an ADSL connection, which I leave connected. Every so often I find that my Internet connection isn't working and for some reason the ADSL modem has disconnected and is trying to dial, but can't connect. I manually disconnect and then reconnect and it works ok.

My question is whether this is something to do with Smoothwall or my ISP. Is anyone aware of any ADSL redial bugs in Smoothwall?

I have the latest update installed and are using an Alcatel Speed Touch USB Modem.

Thanks in advance!

I have the same issue with BTOpenworld. Every five or six days they cycle their servers or something and I get booted. I've been trying to configure ppp to handle this with a clean disconnection and reconnect, but I've not got it working yet.

Sometimes I'll get an IP change and not get booted, but I as I say every six days or so I get kicked.

Very annoying, but then I suppose that I am not meant to be running services on that box either so I wont be complaing to them about it

Thanks for the reply.

I think I may have found the problem... I noticed that idle timeout on the ppp settings was set to 15 mins.. I have set it to 0 (to disable the idle timeout) so we'll see how things go now. So far it's been up 21h 14m and 59s ;-)
