I've just moved to where I will spend the summer, and the internet connection here is driving me nuts within 24 hours. There is a Motorola cable modem and a wireless router. The problem is either with the modem or the ISP. I can get a connection, but it will last for at most a few hours, at the least a few minutes. If I unplug the cable modem from its power supply, this is never enough to restart service. I must both unplug and unscrew the coaxial cable. Even then, if I do this too quickly, the service will not be restored (not all the lights on the cable modem light up, with the last never turning on, and the second to last blinking rather than solid). If any of you boffins who work in the industry read this, I'd love to know what to say to the ISP here to get them to truly fix the problem. I am spending as much time trying to keep the connection active as I am getting any work done. P.S. While I was writing this message, my wife came to tell me that we had lost our connection again. This is madness!!!!
