Problems with PPPoE disconnect, better logging

Discussion in 'Tomato Firmware' started by tinfoil, Oct 27, 2007.

    Good day,

    I'm running Tomato 1.10 on a WRT54GSv2.1. For quite some time, I've been having trouble staying online with my wireless WAN (not my 802.11, rather it's a wireless ISP connection running at ~900Mhz) connection. It connects via PPPoE. My ISP has forwarded me the logs from their end and it shows it's a user disconnect, where Tomato tells me simply that the WAN is down and it's redialing. Is there any further diagnostics I can perform on my end, short of running through a hub or switch with port mirroring and running a dump on the traffic, hoping to catch something there?

    The ISP shows 80+ user initiated disconnects over ~30 days, and I can tell you I'm not telling it to disconnect.

    Specifics, I did juice the radio a bit and I have the Linksys 7dbi omni antennas. No other modifications. I have had this problem for as long as I've been running Tomato (1.07) as well as various versions of DD-WRT (v23, 23sp1, 23sp2) so I'm quite sure it's not the software. I would just like more information on why the router thinks it's disconnected.

    Also something to note: The ISP has acknowledged (finally) that there are definately some provisioning issues, that the service is oversold. As a result, latency is all over the board, though they have been performing some upgrades on the backhaul to the CO which have improved things somewhat. There is also known issues with unusual network traffic such as a misconfigured monitoring device that was flooding the network (fixed after sending multiple wireshark capture logs to prove it) as well as excessive ARP traffic. At times even windows SMB traffic can be seen. Yup, it's pretty mickey mouse, but it's the only option out in the rural areas of southern Ontario. At least they've finally acknowledged the problem and are working to fix it.

    Sorry to bump, but this problem is becoming really very frustrating with the connection going down as often as every 3-5 minutes. The ISP still blames the router, so I tried another Linksys router (a 54GL) running the same version of Tomato and still get random disconnects with no real information from the logs. I'm on 1.11 now. 1.10 worked fine for quite some time, then all of a sudden the problems started occuring again. I'd really love to be able to put this thing in debug mode or something to that effect. Thoughts?

    Again, sorry for the bump, but it's not as though I can jump to a new ISP out here.

    hey mate my post wont help ya but you are not the only one with the problem, i have adsl and keep getting constant internet disconnections, only started happening since i installed Tomato 1.11, was running dd-wrt but tomato seems a little faster, but these dropouts are annoying.
     
  4. tinfoil

    tinfoil LI Guru Member

    Ah, I had the same problem with DDWRT as well, so I'm certainly not going to place the blame on Tomato. In my case atleast.

    This is happening to me at the moment. Happened last night. Last night though at one point the modem lost sync. But right now it's weird because WAN stays down, but if I click on 'measure noise floor' in Tomato, it will suddenly reconnect to the ISP.
    I'm starting to think that 1.07 was probably the most stable Tomato.
     
  6. tinfoil

    tinfoil LI Guru Member

    It was happening to me under 1.07 as well as DD-WRT.

    Same here

    Hi guys,

    This happens to me as well :(

    I'm using tomato 1.11 and I am connecting to my ISP using PPPOE, under heavy load (p2p) tomato usually drops the connection to the ISP and then reconnects, I am getting the following entries into tomato log:

    user.info redial[4907]: WAN down, redialing...
    daemon.info dnsmasq[4909]: exiting on receipt of SIGTERM

    After that tomato connects to my isp again, also me external IP changes because my ISP gives me a new one on every connection.

    I'm almost sure that this has something to do with the router and not my ISP because I tried to directly connect the line from the modem to the computer (skipped the router and created a PPPOE connection on Windows XP PRO) and everything worked fine. I didn't have any disconnections when I was directly connected to the computer. I know that I didn't have any disconnections because my external IP never changed.

    I also tried to changed the MTU on my router to be the same as the one windows XP is using (1480) but that didn't help :(

    I think tomato drops the connection because it tries to check if the connection is valid every 30 seconds (based on the PPPOE check interval setting), because of the heavy load tomato doesn't get a proper response (maybe the request times out) and so it thinks that the connection is down and it tries to reconnect.

    Also note that I didn't have this problem with my previous ISP (it used DHCP instead of PPPOE)

    Do you have any ideas what to do next? (I tried dd-wrt as well but same thing :( )

    Hi @ All,

    since a few weeks now i'm having also problems with pppoe disconnects (see here). And if i remember back i have these problems since ver. 1.08

    Thats the reason why i flashed back to ver. 1.07. I will see in a few days if the problem is gone. Hope to find out this error as soon as possible so we can give Jon a freedback.

    tinfoil LI Guru Member

    I know I was having probs with 1.07, which is why I bumped to 1.10 and now 1.11. I am hoping that future versions will enable us to get more detail on why the WAN kicks out. This would be ever so helpful. My ISP says that it is a user requested disconnect.

    The only difference I can see that I have with ang1 is that it can happen with no load whatsoever.

    At last check, I was sitting at a 5 day connection uptime. It's very wierd, but I would certainly like more diagnostic information so I can finally figure out if it is me or my isp.
     
  11. ang1

    ang1 LI Guru Member

    tinfoli, do you have a limit on your upload ? for me disconnects start to happen whenever I remove my upload limit from utorrent
     
  12. tinfoil

    tinfoil LI Guru Member

    No limits during the day. The only thing I can think of is that my connection can sometimes be very high latency (400ms+) and that coupled with some poor service quality with sometimes as high as4% packet loss sustained may be confusing the keep alive on the router.

    I have a WRT54GSv1.1 with PPPoE (DSL provider) and have also been getting frustrating disconnects. I am not knowledgable enough about Tomato/3rd party f/w to diagnose this, but as a recent convert from Thibor 15c (long time user) it's a little disconcerting. Lets hope for a simple fix, I'd prefer not to have to add scripts to commit to nvram etc if I can help it.

    I'm happy to help try and diagnose it if folks can tell me what steps to take to do so.

    Thanks

    I had a internetconnection only with my d-link 360 modem and i had no problems.

    i bought the Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 (org.firmware) and used it with my modem and i had no problems.

    after installing the tomato firmware on my router, i had the disconnect problem.
    i had disconnections after a onlinetime of 30min to 6h.

    I flashed my modem to an newer firmware and now everything is fine and i only get a disconnection after 24h ;-)

    maybe this helps someone...

    yeah , i flashed my dlink 360t modem to this version:
    DLinkEU_DSL-360T_V3.00B01T02.EU.20060220

    i can't remember the version of the old firmware, but there was something with 2004.

    But these changes were made:
    - New GUI design
    - ADSL2/2+ support

    ps: and tomato 1.11 runs and runs ...:biggrin:

    I can see lot of debug messages in release\src\router\ppp\pppoecd\main.c (i.e. error, warn,syslog, dblog, option_error), is there a way to enable the logging of these functions ?

  25. der_Kief

    der_Kief Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Hi @ all,

    after still having problems with pppoe disconnects i contacted Jon about this. There is now a "testing" version with more ppp information in the syslog. Set debug_pppoe=1 will give you just more information (but be careful its overkill for syslog :). Also he implemented:

    pppoe_lei=30
    # lcp echo interval -- "Interval between LCP echo-requests"; default is 30

    pppoe_lef=5
    # lcp echo fails -- "Tolerance to unanswered echo-requests"; default is 5
    (actually, was 3 before this build)

    Please give Jon feedback about your experience with this new version.

    Hi,

    i just send this log messages (mine are nearly the same) to Jon but he couldn't find anything helpful. I activate extendend logging (debug_pppoe=1) after setting my NSLU2 as syslog server. This evening when i'm back from work i will see if there are more messages witch will be helpful.

    Just to add my 2p - I've seen quite a few problems reported with adsl modems and pppoe recently. Not sure what has changed but the opensource pppd daemon is now up to 2.4.4, assuming this is the same fork...

    http://www.samba.org/ppp/README.html

    Tomato still uses 2.4.1. Not a drop in replacement I guess - the router version probably has a 1000 size/ feature optimizations, but D-Link and Acorp at least are now using later versions - perhaps they know something?

    Hi,

    no feedback from Jon till now. In the meantime i tried OpenWrt/Kamikaze 7.09 for a few days which uses pppd 2.43 but sadly same problems here :frown: Then i changed to another ADSL modem but also same problem. So now i think it has to do with my provider even if they say everthing is OK. I suppose i have to live with it :frown:

    Ahh, don't give up that easily... There has got to be a way to at least use enhanced/debug log to see exactly what is going on, so we can know definitively if it's the ADSL Modem/provider or the router/firmware.

    Hi,

    unfortunately the "new" pppoecd doesn't solve my problems. BUT it seems to be alot faster and also there is more logging ! So, from me a :thumbup:

    der Kief, can you tell us what a lot faster means? I ask because you have already tried the 'public' 1.15. Also, is the extra logging anything we would care about?

    (I use PPPOE too, but don't have your issues.. Out of idle curiosity, what would happen if you set your router's MTU to 1400?)

    After 2 days with this firmware I can only say that I don't have any problems with my pppoe connection!Work like a sharm , I will stay with this one. ;)


    bye!

    It is a key issue when you need to analyze PPPoE connection problems.
    I am grateful for this improvement.

    Bad news:

    My ISP (M-net) uses to interrupt the PPPoE connection every 24 hrs.
    The router should reconnect immediately; however, the new PPPoE
    driver needed several attempts until the connection came up again.
    I don't remember any previous Tomato version to show this problem.

    FYI: I have already sent a related bug report to Jon.

    Hi,

    better response times ( i'm a gamer :) ) and better troughput in my case

    as Odin-60 already mentioned the extra logging is very helpfull in case of PPPoE problems


    @Odin-60
    ich denke mal das in meinem Problem-Fall Arcor der Schuldige ist. Das Log ist ja eindeutig. Hab nochmals reklamiert und bin gespannt wie die jetzt reagieren.Bis denne

    Same problem here. WRT54 GL V1.1. Tomato 1.15 and lower.
    ISP means conncection is very good. Changed cabels, bought a new modem, etc. But i still have this disconnects sometimes, 3 times a day.
    When NO user is online. All computers are sleeping.
    I can life with this situation, but i don't like it.
    Here in Germany my provider give me all 24h another IP.
    I want a stable Tomato that rocks the 24h without disconnects.

    pollila,
    Some ISPs deliberately kick you off by issuing PADT. Are you sure that is not the case here? It might not be the problem of the firmware but of the ISP. A former ISP of mine used to do the same thing except it was every 4 hours (exactly, to the second) and I had to escalate my complaint before they stopped it. For a long time after they stopped doing that, they would still kick me after hours of idle time causing my IP to change but that too I finally fought to change.

    2 times the man from my ISP was in my house. After changing all, only leaves the router with Tomato. I don't know. But i haved times without disconnects in the past. I'm sure but no remember the version of Tomato.

    Hi,

    here is a new "testing" version for new pppeocd daemon.
    • It doesn't change anything significant, only cleanup of the code. Just want to be sure nothing else got broken during the cleanup.
    And please report the syslog entries for pppoe disconnect's to Jon !

    "If you have the logs showing the disconnects, I'd be interested in that just to see what's happening."

    Hi,

    I've got the same problem. DSL modem seems to keep pppoe connection steady. But WRT54GL drops pppoe sessions every 2 hours or so. Mine ISP issues disconnects every 24 hours. Working with modem directly is pleasure - no disconnects at all.

    I wonder if anyone here would consider using dsl modem as a router with DHCP while wireless router gets DHCP address and has nothing to do with pppoe. I know it is not the solution to the problem, but the way to get around it.

    Will keep you updated on how it goes with the last update from tomato.

    PS. From what I got from other forums and threads here. These pppoe drop out might be somehow related to wireless disconnection problems.
