During and after this upgrade of bandwidths at PTCL, I am experiencing random modem hangouts in which the modem send/receive lights hangs soild (stops blinking). In such case the modem reboot command (via the Web Interface) does not usually works and I have to manually power reset the modem. This is fine if I am at home all the time, however usually since I am accessing the home network from the office, it becomes a rather daunting task.
I am trying to find an automatic way of doing it, and have almost completed, will post the a how-to about it as well if possible. Will involve router modification with custom firmware (tomato or DD-WRT) and some basic electronics.
By that time , Is anyone else having the same kind of troubles with the PTCL DSL service lately.
I am connected to Azizabad Exchange Karachi.
