    Flaky Internet

    My internet has been pretty flaky as of late. The problem is usually fixed by unplugging the rounter and the cable modem for 5 to 10 minutes then reconnecting them. Is this a hardware problem? Is there something I can do short of buying new gear?

    Well you put it in hardware so check for temperature? particularly fan operation & good circulation in the router.

    Feel the cases................seem unusually hot?

    If it is the modem, then you will need new kit.............if you can disconnect try a stand alone box direct through the modem. If you still have the problems then it is the modem/ISP if not it is the router?

    Cheers

    Thanks a bunch nihil. It turned out that the router was having "issues". Thanks though.

    Do you have the latest firmware on the router? (Upgrades usually fix bugs and such)
