Hi.
Login the web management page, go to Network->DSL Settings, change DSL Modulation Type from Auto to anther one in the list, and then you can check which one can make Internet connection more stable.

Hi, did changing this setting solve your problem? I've had a similar problem with this model, it's working now, but seems to drop connection every couple of days & then can take up to a day to re-establish. Turning it off for a while doesn't solve it. Thanks,

maybe you set "connect on demand" on your 8980,so that Internet will drop out from time to time.
You can configure it in 8980"s web management interface:network->wan settings->add,choose connection type "PPPOE",choose "always on",and reconfigure the parameters your ISP provides,save.
That means you have dialed again。
hope this can help you
