Here's what I think would work (none of them have been tested):
1. Plug in another modem between the 2Wire and the telephone jack on the wall and take the 2Wire off of broadband, just use it for LAN. Taking it off of BB will need to be done on the MDC console.
2. Replace the 2Wire with something not 2Wire. Pace 4111n is a 2Wire product; maybe they've fixed the problem in it.
I am going to be trying workaround #1 with an older modem that I already have or get a new one from my new ISP ;-)
I went with workaround #2 and I have not seen DSL disconnects/resyncs so far. It's been about 5 days now. And the new one is an 802.11n router + modem.
I couldn't try workaround #1 as my older modem is too old to connect to the ISP. I wont be trying workaround #1 anytime soon.
