Im in Christchurch and I'm having this issue as well. I wouldn't say frequent but definitely regular (like once a day over heavy use days - weekends when kids are all streaming/gaming etc.) And perhaps once every few days on other not so heavy ussage days.
I have the technicolor modem and a HG659 vodafone supplied router. We recently ugraded from the 50Mb service to the 200Mb service to try resolve these issues that occured before the upgrade. However it's somewhat better but definitely not fixed.
It's frequent enough that it is annoying as hell when the kids yell out "Dad the internets broken AGAIN!!!"
How do we go about fixing this. Everything on my local side of the network continues to work but the internet is gone until a power cycle of both the cable modem and router have been done.

To get rid of the internet is unavailable message you simply need to disable IPV6. It says internet is unavailable because it fails to establish an IPV6 connection.
Once you do that it displays "Connected" etc...

Experienced another outage last night around 9:30pm...seemed to be the same type I'd had before. Wa up again in the monring. All the lights are on the modem but no connection. Didn't bother calling vf service desk, and didn't bother powering off and then on as it doesn't help. Also this is similar to the issues I've been experiencing before, so assume the Static IP isn't a short term solution as the technicians had advised. sigh.

Experiencing the same issues ever since I "upgraded" to Fibrex.
It drops out at various times of the day, sometimes not at all, sometimes frequently.
At times it's a little annoying at other times it's downright unusable.
I was very happy with my old cable service so expected this to be an improvement.
Very disappointed with FibreX, I've successfully persuaded a few people to not bother using it and stick with the older cable service.
At this stage I'm just waiting for proper fibre to be introduced in our area.

Hi, I found this post by googling "fibre-x drops connection regularly" ! ... seems to be the same issue as everyone else.
Had been on the 130/10 cable plan for years with no issues at all... then upgraded to the 200/20 fibre-x with new cable modem and router, then started experiencing issues with IP address when it was renewed every sunday night which seemed to hang the conenction the next day until router was restarted , so went to a fixed IP address a few weeks back, now getting the regular - lights are all green but no connection type situation again ... as soon as i restart the cable modem its fine ......
Would be very keen for a permanant fix

Would just like to add my frustrations as well, we got FibreX installed a few weeks back and since we've been having frequent disconnects with our modem, not the router. Usually rebooting the modem only brings back the connection, and rebooting the router doesn't do anything if the modem isn't rebooted too. Happens with the stock Vodafone router provided too, wired or wireless. I'm out of options here, so a fix would be greatly appreciated.

Following problems I got an engineer to call who confirmed problem was not at the house but up the line somewhere and said it should be fixed in a week or so. This does seem to have happenned, the service is much more reliable in the last week and I am not suffering from those daily drop-outs any more
