    Exclamation Internet Issue

    My internet connection is through a cable modem. For some reason for the last couple of days, my internet has been randomly disconnecting itself. I have no idea how to fix it, and I can usually fix little problems such as these.

    Would anyone know what the problem is, and how may I resolve it?

    No, it is everyone once in a while. I don't think I have a virus, either.

    Spin Da Ish, yeah.. I'm not about to go buy another modem. The one I have is perfectly fine. It just loses its connection every now and then and I don't know how to get it to stop.

    It could be that you just need to restart your modem, about a week ago my internet conection stop it only alowed a few Packages to be send.
    So i jused the internet problem solver from Microsoft and it told me turn my modem of, then put it on again and wait 3 minutes.
    It workt even beter than it dit before that, proberly once in a while your modem just needs a restart.

    I would say to reset your modem (should be a button on the back...look for a little hole to poke a needle in). If you still get the same issue change out your cable (the cat5/6 one) that goes from your modem to your pc. If you use a router disconnect from it and connect directly to your pc...I would also go to Cnet and try their internet speed clocker and see what it says...if you aren't getting a fast connection or dropping packets like crazy then contact your ISP.

    I reset my modem every now and then, and I usually do not get any problems afterwards. But if this happens again, I will see to it that I try all of the offers you gave. Thank You. And thank you all who gave more information on my internet problem. Your help was very much appreciated.

    Just 2 more cents: when you reset (or power cycle) your modem, do your router too (if you have one). I always unplug both of mine for 3-5 minutes, then reattach modem, wait for green status, then reattach the router. Barring service problems (check with your ISP, too) that usually works.
