it keeps resetting itself many times throughout the day and i'm not sure what to do about it. could it be because i have a longer coax cable? i don't have the funds to go out and get a new modem. i've only had this one for a day and figured it would be a lot better than this. i've never had this issue with mediacom that ive had in the past. very disgruntled customer.
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.
What is the exact make and model number of the modem ?
