Got a problem here that no one can seem to figure out!
My cable modem looses the data light - it stops blinking. This will happen about every 2-3 days MAX.
I have to reset (by unplugging the power) the modem, router (linksys), then plug back in and bam it all fires right up.
I've had modem replaced twice, and replaced patch cords, upgraded firmware, reinstalled OS on ALL the PCs (3, sometimes 4).
I havn't swapped the nic since the cable modem goes to the router, then router to PC obviously, and the connection is on ISP, not just one PC.
This problem only started when I switched from DSL to cable. The ISP is telling me it's cause I leave my PC on all the time; however I still don't see it being a PC issue since it's the light on the Cable modem - not just an issue with ONE PC.
I've also tried swapping around PCs, with still same reaction.
Any help would be much appreciated and this point I've very frustrated, confused and mad/upset over the entire ordeal.
