Found a great guide on this forum for water-cooling, but I'm not finding any guides for networks.
I have been experiencing intermittent connectivity since I signed up with the cable provider. We replaced the modem and router to upgrade to N and Docsis 3.0. My wife insisted we did not broadcast, and I resolved that. We were constantly getting DNS PROBE: no interweb. I have switched the switches and toggled and troubleshot and rebooted all the devices, and checked both network devices software for defaults and firmware. The network is still occasionally rebooting itself, and windows is behaving funny (sometimes I get the yellow triangle, even when I am clearly connected, sometimes it doesn't see the network at all).The guy came out and tested the lines for Db ratings, and said we we're fine. I can post those if need be.
3 x win 7 pc's, 2 WAN & one wired that I'd rather swap to wireless (have card)
2 x android 4.4.2
and sometimes a friend or 2's computer in for hardware repair
maybe someday we'll put the xbox 360 and Wii back on
I put the 3 androids separate on the 5GHz band.
Should I just make all the devices forget the network, and start from scratch? Should I abandon 5G all together?
Someone mentioned that I should switch to static Ip addresses, but the cable company said that I cannot.
Do I need to list all the adapters on the devices?
I apologize, but I need a walk-through...
