I was happily doing one does here on the net, when I lost connection.

I saw the PPP light was out, this is the second time it has occurred.

After much pressing of buttons it stared up again.

Is it the router or what?

I now know what it feels like to be emasculated.

PPP going out means it lost authentication which would suggest the connection dropped. Call your ISP and see if they can see frequent re-connections, if so it's probably the router. I remember a while back my awesome RTA1320 was dropping out about 30 times a day :)

^^ What WarNox says, it's usually your ISP.
Alternatively, check and see how warm the router is. Some drop their PPP connection when it overheats and have trouble re-initiating it.

They tell me(Slingshot) that no problem at their end'
I switched unit on this morn, the ppp light would not come on, again after much prodding it has started.
Obviously the thing is cold and still malfunctioned.

What's the make and model? I wonder if you've got some line condition issues with the cabling to your home which may be causing some transmission errors?

I'd be inclined to start looking in to cabling issues.

Curious though, why power it off overnight?

I don't usually power off at night, but with excitement yesterday, I thought it might like a rest.

Why not power it off overnight when it's not in used?
