Cable Modem/Router

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been experiencing some drops on the cable modem due to the regional bandwidth limit reached at peak hours; it goes and then comes back within 15 minutes [which doesn't bother me, or more honestly, there's nothing I can do about it], the problem is, I have to power cycle both the modem and the router, otherwise the internet connection won't resume [windows sits on the connectivity issue icon on the taskbar]..

Now, is this something that can be avoided with a different router/modem..? I'm not sure if it is a modem, router, modem/router issue though..

It very well could be your modem or router. Next time, try rebooting only your modem and see if that helps. If it doesnt, reboot only your router. Decide which one is actually causing the issue. If your router is the issue, consider buying a new one, and if its the modem, contact your ISP and complain.

Amazingly enough, it just happened again..

It's a router problem, as I first rebooted the modem [warning didn't go away] and then the router in that order; is there a "router feature" that I'm not aware of..? How is this "resume after drop" called..?


EDIT: Flashing FW at this moment, see if that helps..

Yea I would flash the firmware with the newest, then if that doesn't work, see if it works with dd-wrt http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

If neither works, its time to replace it.
