Modem help

Past week my internet drops and my home phone line becomes static for those on other end, I do plug my phone line into the modem and use a phone that way . I work from home sometimes and they can’t hear me, I’ve reset the router about 20 Times this week. My modem is about 5 years old which is Comcast equipment should I have a tech out? It will fix the issue and next day it’s back for a bit like it comes and goes, please help!!! My modem is TG862G

Re: Modem help

What do the modem's signal stats look like ? Try getting them here http://192.168.100.1 or here http://10.0.0.1

Please post the *Downstream Power Level*, the *Upstream Power Level*, and the *SNR* (Signal to Noise Ratio) numbers.

Re: Modem help

The stats at that moment were o/k. You may want to try getting that Dinosaur 862 (XB1) model swapped out for a newer and better performing XB3 model. You can find the specific XB3 model numbers here;
