I have 2xT1 bundled in a Multilink PPP Interface, when one of the T1/s goes down the Multilink interface goes down for awhile too and I lose connectivity to the other side for like 5-7 seconds which makes all IP Phones to reset. Then the Multilink comes back up. The reset of the IP Phones is unacceptable please help with this. Both T1/s a connected to 28xx routers on both sides.
There is a option in multilink to set the minimum links required to keep the multilink bundle up. You can set the minimum value to 1 so that if one link goes down, it will not affect the multilink bundle connectivity.
It happened again today. One of the T1 went down and I dont know why OSPF running on the multilink interface kind of reloaded and dropped the connectivity to the other side down for several seconds. Please help....
Let me explain the entire picture. Both T1/s don't have IP addresses. The multilink interface has IP add and participates in the OSPF process. When one of the lines goes down OSPF loses its OSPF peer on the other side for several seconds and we cannot pass traffic over the lines even one of the two lines is up. Then OSPF adjacency comes back up and everything is back to normal. See the output from the log:

I would recommend removing the MLPPP config and running equal weight static routes on the lines. I like this set-up much better. Perhaps nothing techinical about it but I feel it gives me more control of my traffic and lines.
In this case you would use:
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Serial 0/0/0
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Serial 0/1/0
then if you needed to shape your traffic
ip 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.255 Serial 0/0/0
Then you would build your traffic to a loopback interface so that no matter what happens to one line the other will still have traffic.
