Connection loss

Team Player

A few minutes ago I experienced a loss of connection, When I looked at the log this is what I see for the period of the outage:

21.06.2019 15:52:51InfoSYS
TR-069 connectivity to ( has been closed
21.06.2019 15:52:49InfoDHCPC
The WAN DHCP client IP address
21.06.2019 15:52:16InfoDHCPC
The WAN DHCP client process has successfully been launched on Vlan 36
21.06.2019 15:52:15InfoXDSL
VDSL connectivity is up port 1
21.06.2019 15:51:46InfoXDSL
VDSL connectivity is down port 1
21.06.2019 15:51:46WarningDHCPC
The WAN DHCP client process has successfully been terminated on Vlan 36

Could you tell me if these log entries tell you/me why the connection failed and what each entry actually means please. Thanks

Hi @Livingstonenow 

The logs don't say why the link went down, just that it did. Do not worry about the IP address is probably just the assigned WAN IP address.


I have asked one of TalkTalk's OCEs to pick your thread up and investigate it for you.

The forum is not real-time 24/7 support, so depending on how busy they are & how many are working at any one time, this can take 24 - 48 hrs (excluding weekends & limited cover on Bank Holidays). Alternatively, you can call the call centre or use online chat. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. So the fewer entries you make on your thread now, the sooner they will pick it up.

To save yourself time, please make sure that your community profile includes your first & last names, broadband phone number & if possible an alternative contact number. This can be done by clicking on your Avatar picture then click on "My Settings" followed by:-

Personal Profile > Personal Information

Otherwise, TalkTalk will not be able to tie up your forum username to your broadband account. Only you & TalkTalk have visibility of your details.

I am not employed by TalkTalk, I'm just a customer. If my post has fixed the issue, please mark it as the Best Answer.

Thanks Keith. I've lost connection this morning too and posted a new thread topic but inadvertently placed it on the Broadband menu rather than this Fibre Broadband section - I hope that doesn't upset anyone!

The OCEs will hopefully deal with this on Monday now. Assuming that the other thread was the one I notified you about that I have moved out of the way, that is fine. Let's just stick to this one thread for this issue, otherwise, it can lead to confusion/delays.

Hi Livingstonenow 


Apologies for the delay.


I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults but I can see some re connections on the line. DLM has changed the profile a few times on 19/06. 21.06. 23.06 and 24.06. This would account for the re connections on the line.

Thanks Debbie. Fingers crossed........................!!
