my interenet loses connection every couple of minutes for 5-10 secs. Not a huge deal, but as a gamer, it really sucks. Does anyone have any ideas on how to debug this? I fear it is my modem that is doing it.
Thats a pretty big deal if its down that much.
Ae you on Wi-Fi or a cabled connection? Have you tried it on a cabled connection?
It doesn't sound like a typical modem fault (they usually work or dont if faulty)
whats your set up? Game console, network switch, fibre or DSL etc?
both, connected with WiFi and a cable (cat 5 or the like). Tried it just pure cable but that us where the problem started. Now I am pure wifi (I found I was getting better speeds that way).
SetUp is an alienware comp, brand new. It did the same thing on my last computer as well so it isnt a machine specific issue I dont think.
ps - switch is the Vodafone one, I am on thier sudoFibre plan.
Sounds like you need to call up and report a fault. These sorts of things are rarely a modem fault.
