Fiber connection constantly dropping - Pings returning "Reply from (PUBLIC FACING IP): Destination host unreachable"
Tried posting this yesterday, but couldn't get it to go through, after enough tries I finally got it to post today.
After having the setup for over a year now with no major issues. 2 days ago the system effectively went belly up.
Started with losing the ability to maintain a teams call, then my computers throughout the house showing intermittent drops. I figured okay, maybe the router died or config went belly up. So I reset everything and redid the configuration. Spoke with ATT customer service and they reset a few things and it worked again for a few moments. After getting off the call, approximately 30 minutes later.... boom, same thing. I went out and bought a brand new Asus Router, got it set up. EXACT SAME THING.
When pinging google and having page loading issues.. , I get the following details.
This happens off and on, if I do a run longer pings the issue become more evident.
Notice the spike in latency when it reconnects.
Anyways, after spending hours on the phone with technical support, I get no where other than them mailing me a new modem/gateway. So this morning upon getting that set up, things were good for all of 10 minutes ,then it kicked right back to the same stuff.
It's as if the handshake between the ATT Router and the Asus is failing temporarily, but at a consistent rate.
Spent another 2 hours on the phone today. Tried all sorts of config changes. No Dice. ATT has scheduled a tech to come out Tuesdays of next week, but I really need to try to get something figured out sooner. Anyone have any ideas on this one?
