My configuration - Draytek Vigor 120 connected to my ADSL line, connected to Airport Extreme 802.11n.


On Airport Utility both lights - Internet and Airport Extreme green.

The Internet light frequently turns yellow - for 10-30 seconds and than green again all the time. The Airport light stays all the time green.

When yellow and shortly afterwards - no internet connection.


Is the Draytek modem failing? Any other ideas?

    Either the connection is being lost between your Internet connection and the Draytek Vigor 120......or......the connection is being lost between the Draytek Vigor 120 and the AirPort Extreme.


    One way that you can find out as a test.....if you can set up a PPPoE connection on your computer and then connect the computer directly to the Draytek Vigor 120 and let things run for a few days......the connection will either remain stable (so you know the Draytek Vigor 120 is working correctly).....or....the connection difficulties will continue (so you know that you likely have a defective Draytek Vigor modem).

    Same problems when connected directly.

    I will try to get another modem and see if problems are gone.

    Just for the record. My modem was defective - I replaced it and everything is now OK.
