Re: Modem connection
I would have to agree with thompatry regarding the modem either going bad, or just not able to handle your speeds. What activity are you engaged in when this happens? Is it normal browsing, only gaming, downloading large files...? I've seen this happen to a few modems and Occom's Razor is typically spot on, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one. At the end of the day, you're going to need to get a new modem most likely and the ISP should replace it for free. Although, they'll make you go to a local office to pick up the replacement to avoid a tech fee.
Additionally, this is a modem failing and not a network router correct?
