I had asked similar question here. But instead of reviving it, I thought I would post a new question with additional details. The issue is establishing broadband connection initially. I have a DSL DLink 502T modem which I have been using for long. But now a days, I am having issues while establishing connection. The modem takes several restarts, to establish a broadband connection. The ADSL and PPPoE LED's are off until several restarts, after which they light up. Sometimes it takes as much as 10-12 restarts or even more. Here is what the Modem Log shows when the attempt to connect fails.
MODEM LOG (For failed attempt to establish connection)
oamPingInterval(20)(20) Valid Configuration Tree stat successfull for /etc/resolv.conf. Resolver Polling Timer Started succesfully. NTP Polling Timer for DHCP Started succesfully. DSL Polling Timer Started succesfully. Firewall NAT service started del_iptable_rules : ppp_name not intact Bridge Created: br0 updateall_servers : No children found for conn: Bridge Created: br1 Bridge Interface Added: eth0 Bridge Interface Added: usb0 DSL Carrier is down del_iptable_rules : ppp_name not intact
Once the connection is established it remains stable throughout the day. The Modem then shows following DSL statistics

I had tried to take help of my ISP Provider but it didn't solve the issue. Any ideas why there is issue establishing a broadband(ADSL PPPoe) connection with the ISP.
