Ok I'll end my sarcasm here. This is one of the humorous cases ever. I've just installed my mtnl bb around 4 hours back and it had started giving me problems. Let me tell you that I've my own modem+ router which I used with airtel and it worked perfectly fine. So all of a sudden the internet light goes off and the dsl starts to blink slowly until the Internet light lights up again and running. It happens automatically and the Internet light takes about 1 min to restore.I have a parallel line and it doesn't cause a problem. And there's no disturbance on the line.

That always happens on MTNL ADSL. That is due to poor server configuration from MTNL side. I am suffering with random disconnections issue from 5-6 years.

I too face disconnections but, it's not that frequent, it's like once in 14 or so hours that too once in a while.It connects automatically and as you said, takes around 1 minutes for everything to get stable.

If in case the internet doesn't get back soon (within 20-30 seconds between light switching off and then turning back on on the router), I press the power button off and then immediately on. In fact the technique has worked so well for me oftentimes that the router keeps working for several hours in the normal fashion without any interruptions whatsoever. There's no harm in trying it.

MTNL refreshes the IP after every six hours, so everyone's connection is restarted/reconnected after 6 hours.

Did not know that actually.I realize when a program jumps up saying its unable to connect or connecting again, that's pretty much it :D

Line stats, both with the parallel phone connected and without. Anyway, since you've just got the connection, wait for a few days.

192.168.1.1 Open this in your browser. Is it every 45 minutes as in a fixed pattern?Disconnect parallel phone, and check stability.
