Hello, I was wondering if anyone on these forums has had a problem similar to mine. I use a Comcast-provided Motorola SB5101 SURFboard Cable Modem which in turn has a Linkysy E1000 router running off of it. Connected to the router are two devices; (1) my wired desktop computer and (2) my Xbox 360. About two months ago, I started getting randomly disconnected. My modem would lose its ONLINE green light, then the SEND light, then the RECEIVE, and then finally the POWER light would go and the modem would reset itself. I bought the new E1000 wondering if it my old router might be the problem (it was fairly old). However, the problem still persists. The main issue is that these disconnections are seemingly random. Some days it will not happen at all, sometimes it resets itself around every 2 hours or so, and sometimes (today namely) it resets itself almost every 20 minutes. I have asked Comcast and they scheduled to send a technician out to my apartment, but the date came and passed and noone came. Has anyone ever had this problem or a similar predicament?
