Re: modem

It's more likely signal issues rather than a bad modem. If you would like to do some troubleshooting on your own: 

See the troubleshooting guide. If you would like advice, please post your equipment details (make/model of your modem/gateway/router) and a screenshot of your signal levels and your error/event log. Thank you!

 

I've asked a Comcast employee to help you. You should expect a reply in this thread. 

 

Tip: If you need service, sign up for the Service Protection Plan (SPP). It's around $6 a month and you must keep it for at least 60 days after your service call. If you have SPP, you won't incur a service charge. You can sign up when you schedule an appointment.
