The woes of cable

10 posts in this topic

i have been havin issues with the broadband over in my hood. basically, every few hrs, it would just stop workin. so i call up comcast, and they say to plug the modem rignt in2 a computer. it works, so ok. but it still leaves the mytersy of my the linksys just cuts out sometimes. so for the streams im doin, im puttin on zonealarm, and streamin straight to the net, not through the router. i dont want the ladies to miss my show. :lol:B)

I got cable, and sometimes, it just stops working, just cuts the connection. I talked to my isp and I was told that whenever it happens I should just reset the modem (resetting being: unplugging the modem and then plugging it back in) and it works, but its weird that it happens...

I just (less than a month) started with Comcast cable modem after having DSL for three years. No problems yet but are you both on Comcast/ATT. Is this what i should expect?

What type of modem are you using?

I'm using Comcast. Scientific atlanta modem. (i think they stopped giving these out) i had issues at first. however it was all on their end. Mine has been running great for several months.

yeah, my linksys does the same thing every now and then. Doesn't do it very often though. Not lately anyway.

It only takes a few seconds to fix.. so it's not to much of a hassle for how often it occurs.

I hate to sound like a granny, but "update your firmware". I'm guessing you have the BEFSR41 (which I have and had the same problems with the cable provider I used to use (@home)) and the same thing used to happen to me all the time. I'm using another provider now (change of location), but my friend is using a linksys router with the new firmware and he hasn't had a lockup since he updated it.
