Something interesting I noted, while the connection was stable with no drops on the old router, after plugging in the newer Xiaomi the route is only 8 hops. Is this because the Xiaomi's MAC is set to get a public IP and not a NAT'd one?
Thanks for clarifying.So when you get a natted IP you get a few more hops because you go through out nat box that does the nat translation.
Thanks for clarifying.
So far it's nearly 2 hours on the Xiaomi and looking very good. Only change is the LAN cable between the ONT and router, it was a very thin and flimsy one, so FFs advise seems to be spot on.
I have a few low speed non resume downloads that will take 6 more hours so that should be a indicator of how solid it is.

@AfriNatic you are a legend! Issue is resolved.Hi,
Just a quick summary of events.
There are 2 x B numbers trying to auth on the account. Both B numbers are not managed by Afrihost and are not feasible to be migrated to Afrihost because they are active with another ISP.
To bypass this I have placed a new provide order. A new B number has been generated and Openserve will activate this B number on a 2nd port of the ONT. B510027014 to be activated.
Please have the ONT serial number handy for a remote activation. I have reset the CLID lock so you can use the current line until the new B number is activated.
Please send me a private message so I can reset the PPPoE details for you again and then it should work.
Okay an update on the PS4 issue.
Did a quick search and noticed 1 suggestion was changing the DNS. If I change DNS to 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168, download speed goes up to 80+ Mbps on PS4. If I don’t change DNS, highest speed is 50Mbps for some odd reason.
