Guys, MTNL fellas seem to be discovering new tricks by each passing day..first they managed to do port binding..now they have discovered the option in their RAS's of disconnecting the subscriber at regular intervals.
I am getting disconnected regularly at 12 hourly intervals..not a big issue except my VoIP accounts for some reason refuse to register once that happens..

Anybody else facing the disconnection thingy..or is it only me :eek:

oh! i just noticed this. here in mumbai they have done it 6hrs! that is disconnect user every 6hrs. i normally disconncet when i dont use net. but many a times i notice i get disconnected automatically. and now i noticed there are many sessions with EXACT 6 hr period.so yes u r right they have implemented that. but i think this is done for reducing load on system in my mind. i dont know how it relates to any kind of security.may be so that user cant use 1 single IP for say days or weeks.update:yup 6 hrs confirmed. i asked my friend who keeps net on for fullday. he has plenty of 6hr sessions. other friend who has fixed IP even he has many 6hr sessions.

Yeah its a bit irritating for ppl who have 24 hr net usage..i have to manage the disconnections so that they dont happen when VoIP calls are coming in..Earlier i used to remain logged on for weeks at a stretch.. even a month once w/o any d/c.. Six hrs is crazy man..i wud switch ISP if it was done here..

well I noticed this 12 hour thing s few days bak. I was trying to keep my router on so that if I switch it on in NU period like 7:55am and switch it off in NU period like(12:05 am) so that usage during the whole of day might not be chargedHowever MTNL auto starts a new session after exactly 12 hours( i dont know if they disconnect u) but session is new after 12 hrs.

Well my modem reboots every then and now(after 2 mbps upgrade)! Dial a number from tel to boost the signal and it resync again.
