Re: ATT DSL keeps dropping connection

OK, thanks again wayjac.

After saving the "No, use private IP address" setting, wouldn't I necessarily have to provide
a private IP address?

Also, so as I understand it, this "change" is just going to reduce the time I`m back up online automatically, when and if the connection drops, without actually physically rebooting the modem (and Router) ?

No, you will not need to provide a private IP address
The modems dhcp server will do this automatically

I'm thinking this change will allow the modem to fully
reestablish it's internet connection without a reboot of the modem
or router.

I think this will help because the log indicates the public ip address is not renewing as quick as it should.
Here's some example messages:
Last DHCP Server message repeated 206 times.
Last DHCP Server message repeated 2860 times.
|Last DHCP Server message repeated 12 times.
