I have no idea which is a good place to ask this, so if it's the wrong board, mods please put it in the correct board. So I'm just surfing the web as usual at 12 pm. SUDDENLY, my internet becomes painfully slow for the next 3 hours. I've decided i've waited long enough because I thought maybe it was Cox's fault. I unplug my modem and router power and internet cables. I plug it back in and now my internet is fast again. So my question is this, why do routers and modems do this? Why do they suddenly decide to make internet slow unless i unplug it and plug it back in? Are modems/routers so badly made that they stop working unless you turn it off?
