Connection problems with ASUS DSL N66U modem

I have DSL n66u modem which is connected to my Vodafone VDSL connection. It works well most of the time but sometimes it hangs. When that happens, I have tried to reboot it and do a soft reset but that doesn't solve the problem. The only way to reconnect is by doing a hard reset. The VDSL link shows that it is up but the modem isn't connecting. It has got latest firmware and I don't use it for much else apart from browsing and streaming.

the syslog shows the following lines repeated over again as its trying to reconnect. can someone explain what is going on and how to fix this.

Hey @sudeshj

 

Have you tried with the HG659 that was provided by Vodafone? To see if the connection is stable that way

using the HG659 i get a stable connection but the performance within my house was very poor. i couldn't stream anything and even wifi was bad. So Asus works very well except when it ocassionally goes in this loop trying to reconnect. it happens very rarely but still it will be good to have it sorted

We don't normally provide troubleshooting help for a 3rd party modem, have you thought about possible just bridging the connection between the HG and your Asus? Might solve this looping issue.
