Question Signal Intermittent Cause Laptop Issues?

November 23, 2015 I moved here, experienced a severe intermittent signal issue since!

I moved closer to the beaches recently... Comcast finally admitted to having noise in their line coming in to my place.... Problem pinged around the bend a block away!

Does an intermittent signal issue cause various issues on your laptop?

freezing up (short & long bouts).. youtube songs studdering.. kernal data errors.. slow net.. sending email issues/errors.. disconnecting from online, etc...
~ Disconnects from online then reconnects... But xfinity icon still says "internet Access"...

Any more issues created?

I feel "YES" since the phone acts up at the same time as TV at times as does the laptop!
~ Comcast techs blame the phone cords and laptop... Daaaaa!

I also know the phone and laptop get effected 1st cause they use far less signal...

Thank you kindly...
Google: bad tower 08088 ... I know all about it!

Yes they do cause those issues.

Do you have any other wireless where you are living? They could be interfering with your connection.

You might want to try changing your router's frequency.

Anything network related can be caused by noise in the line...

they will need to replace the line, sometimes noise can be a block in the cable itself (physical damage).
Don't like what I say, ban me!
