Hi and thanks for your reply
Modem is SpeedStream 5100
On Modem`s "Internet Connection Configuration" page it says: PPP on the Modem (Public IP for LAN). Also says Protocol PPPoE
On "PPP Location" page it says: PPP is on the modem.
Under "Home Network Configuration" it says: DHCP Lease 0 Days, 0Hours, 10 Minutes.
How do I determine "if drops are due an interruption of DSL sync or simply loss of the PPOE connection"?
