I have been using VR2800 for 4 years. And the last 2 months I'm getting frequent disconnects from internet. The DSL line is always active and does not disconnect but the internet stops working and in the modem interface it says "Disconnected" when I check the internet tab. It mostly resolves on its own after several minutes but I may get another disconnect immediately afterwards.
And one thing that always keeps happening is the following:
Whenever I get a disconnect the modem always shows some upstream even though I'm not uploading anything, and my activity monitor does not show any uploaded data during that time. This is a screenshot. Is my modem dead or is something else going on?
I have tried everything. Resetted the modem to factory defaults as well. The ISP checked the cables and cannot find anything wrong with the DSL line.
