[quote=groovemeister;2029996]For over a week now, websites keep timing out, downloads break and I keep having to power down my modem and back on again or repair the connection via my PC and [B]it’s not just on this PC[/B], which means that I have a problem with my router or ISP. I don’t want to go to my ISP unless I know there is a problem with the connection itself, so I’m hoping that someone can help troubleshoot whether it is a problem with my modem or my ISP.
Any online tools that can diagnose? Any tools that can run checks on the modem, etc?
Hope someone can help! :s[/quote]
so are we to understand this problem exists and is duplicated on every PC in use?
Try pinging with the -t option to a website and also try it to other pc’s to see where the connection breaks if at all, leave it going for ike an hour I would say
Also, has this been happeneing as of recently, or has this setup worked fine for some time?
And how old is the hardware used (router/modem)?
What firmware do you have running, is it the latest?
If the ping out test doesn’t break, I would say to blame the router first, and unfortunately you might get stuck having to replace it, but I am hoping you have out of date firmware and after looking at their list, there are many fixes over time for this model.
