Constant dropouts requiring modem reboot whenever devices are unused for a while.
I have an Arris SBG6580-2.
We have two desktops and a Unifi wif-fi acces point hard wired into the modem. A few months ago, after a days long service interruptionwe were told someone had "shot the neighborhood distribution box" Sounds like a convenient excuse but it is Chicago after all. Since that time we have had to reboot our modem several times a day when trying to use the desktops, especially if it was inactive for over an hour. This problem also happens with the wi-fi gateway. Devices that are in continuous use retain their connection until you try to use a different program requiring internet....for example, I can play several hours of online games with no apparent hiccups, but as soon as I finish and immediately boot up Chrome or Firefox, the same desktop shows no internet connection.
Modem down/up below. Any ideas guys?
