I'm facing the same problem in bridge mode again. This problem started when I was upgraded to 2 Mbps, but now it has been a long time, and I still haven't found a solution to this problem. I can't connect in a single go, it has to be at least 3-4 attempts (it is automatic, in Windows though, it redials if the line is dropped). Moreover, the connection doesn't last more than 1 hour. The redial attempts are 2000, after 1 sec. But I don't think Windows ever does try to redial.

It's as if disconnection due to signal loss or disturbance doesn't apply for being redialled. Windows selectively redials, it redials if it doesn't connect in the first attempt, but if the connection snaps after being connected for 1/2 - 1 hour, Windows doesn't try to redial it. I'm so frustrated. Any solutions, guys? Router Settings?

SNR Margin
28.9 Downstream
25 Upstream

Line Attenuation
26.5 Downstream
15 Upstream


I've never truly enjoyed bridge mode. I've always had one problem or another. Do you think changing the router would help? Can I ask for a new router from MTNL? Which one is the best?


Another problem that plagues me is the problem related to PPP Down status. Recently my phone number got changed, as MTNL has offered free intercom service in our society. I now don't get a dial tone, I have to dial a 0 first, if I have to dial outside the society. Since this change, I face the problem of PPP down as WAN status in the router. I have to wait for about 1/2 an hour for it correct. Rebooting doesn't help. I can solve the problem temporarily by changing the DSL settings.



I uncheck the ADSL2+ box, click Save/Apply, the Link lights go out, it connects again and the problem gets temporarily solved. But the next time I connect I have the same problem again. I then tick the ADSL2+ box again, and I can connect again. It's not that I always get this problem, but I do get it 40% of the times.

It is working with only ADSL2 and G.DMT enabled, I'll have to wait test if it is stable or not. Anybody else with the UT300R2U facing a similar problem?

2. ERROR 619: The port is disconnected.



Error 619 means that the User is disconnected by the BRAS server .
The Main reason can be “ unavailability of IP address in local pool on BRAS”.


Login into BRAS and increase the number of ip addresses by adding another ip pool .



Note: Refer BRAS doc to add the Local ip pool .


This is the error i get in b/w two redials (bridge mode connection).
