My ADSL provider has been giving me what I believe to be false reasons as to why my ADSL service continually gets interrupted. Each time my modem (and I've tried other modems) tried to negotiate with their server I keep getting 'PVC Connection Down'.
PVC Status: DOWN
Encapsulation: RFC 2364 PPPoA
I've tried setting the autodetect to enable but this makes no difference. Each time the technician attends to sort out the issue they've always got to go an 'do work' at the exchange. What does the 'PVC Connection' actually do and why would it always be 'DOWN' when I try to connect?
