So it would appear to me that my internet connection drops out from time to time, like, maybe every 2 or 3 days, sometimes daily.
The reason why I think this is that in Gargoyle, on the Status > Overview page, "Uptime:" continually increases (as you would expect), whilst "WAN (PPPoE) Uptime:" finds itself resetting every 2 or 3 days, sometimes daily! Logically, I'm expecting both "Uptime:" and "WAN (PPPoE) Uptime:" to only be a couple of minutes apart, depending on the order I reboot the home network in - not hours or days apart.
For example, currently my "Uptime:" shows 8 days, 15 hours, 29 minutes and "WAN (PPPoE) Uptime:" shows 0 days, 10 hours, 16 minutes. Before this, it was sitting at approximately 2 days, so at some point last night, the "WAN (PPPoE) Uptime:" reset once again.
Thus, 2 questions:
- Am I correct in thinking that if "WAN (PPPoE) Uptime:" resets, that means my internet connection has disconnected/reconnected?
- If so, then how can I go about logging this and storing it locally so that I can pass this information on to my ISP?
**Note: If required, I am running Gargoyle 1.8.1 on a Netgear WNDR3800
