If the modem is what is loosing the Internet signal, than it wouldn't be the router.gacolen wrote: <<< The splitter is used to split my Cablevision coaxial cable (after it enters the house) between my TV and my cable modem.
<<< The splitter has been replaced three times, and also the coaxial cabling from the splitter to cable modem, so this is not the problem. The modem also has been replaced (with no improvement), so that is not the problem. The connection from cable modem to router is new and short. The Netgear router is new, so that is not likely the problem (could it be a setting in the router?). The cablemodem-router-telo1/telo2 are all on my desktop, right next to each other.
Maybe people nearby start using the Internet at around 5 PM and the extra load does it?gacolen wrote: <<< Why would there be no problem all day long, and then there would be a problem? Then the problem goes away again?
Some where there is probably an intermittent connection, probably in the Internet provider wiring coming in from the street to your home, to the splitter.
Normally a modem will restart by itself when there is a momentary Internet signal interruption?
Next time you loose the Internet provider signal, don't reboot the modem. Reboot the router first and see if the Internet signal returns. (If the Internet signal doesn't return, then reboot the Modem).gacolen wrote: <<< The modem doesn't lose power, it only loses the internet signal which does not restart until I reboot the modem.
