Well, this has been happening for a few months, but now I feel I am getting annoyed by it. A few times a day, every day, I lose a connection for no more than 5 seconds. I lose the connection on all the computers that are on the internet and our Xbox 360. Can anyone help?

If you have one it will be inside near the main line coming from the pole,plug into a wall outlet

but if you do not know of one you may not have one installed

 

anyway your levels are OK

if you lose connection for longer time or have too many short loss give comcast a call to lower the levels.

Maybe the modem's error log will reveal more info ?

 

Could this be a DHCP issue ? A contention issue.. T3/T4 timeouts ?
