So the past few weeks my cable connection (TWC/RR) has been very spotty. It will go for hours and be fine, and then turn around and be off and on every few seconds. I did everything from changing my ip to static, to resetting the router and network but nothing seemed to help. The other day I called up TWC and they sent a technician out to look at the problem and he diagnosed that the problem was with the router. He did swap out a new modem while he was there although the one I had was less than a year old. So I thought all was well if I just bought a new router. I ended up with a Belkin router (N300) which isnt anything fancy but was probably better than the Linksys WRT54G that I had been using for 7 years and got it all hooked up and running. Everything was fine for a few hours until my connection started acting up again with random disconnects. I've swapped out all the cables for new ones and called TWC again (they said it was not an issue with the new modem and suggest that I call Belkin support). I called Belkin who just proceeded to tell me that the router was not the problem and that it was TWC at fault. Nothing I have done has worked. Maybe the router is not working right even though it is less than three days old. I did successfully connect when I hardwired straight from the modem into my laptop which makes me believe it is the router at fault. I just reset and setup my network again and it seems to be holding out for the time being, but I know it will just be a matter of time before it cuts out. Any suggestions and advice?
