    If it is powering itself off, you may have a problem with your power strip. Try a different outlet. Surprisingly enough, some surge protectors can get faulty. It could also be that the unit is overheating.

    I’d recommend calling your provider and describing the problem to them. I know in our area, customers can pay a small amount more to purchase a very nice high quality modem instead of the refurbished and recycled units that are unpredictable.

    I have this modem too, but with Road Runner internet service. Instead of that, it’ll turn of while browsing, or online gaming, or ANYTHING online. It’ll just have the PC light and the Power light on. Then it’ll just come back on, after an undetermined period of time. Sometimes minutes, sometimes hours. Any tips? We got a new box too, and it’s starting to do the same thing now.

  • resourcesforlife:

    If you have the same service provider (MCHSI or Mediacom High Speed Internet) you’ll need to contact them for instructions on how to make it work with your computer and the game box.

  • jordynitro:

    any idea on how to activate my connection ? and what is Mediacom ?

  • resourcesforlife:

    You’ll probably want to contact Mediacom. The easiest hookup, that’s usually software and setup free, is to plug in the Ethernet cable. Perhaps their box is messed up. Remember that you normally need to do this: (1) turn everything off and disconnect power, (2) power everything back on. (3) Then the box recognizes your computer. Also, some Mediacom systems require that you activate your connection.

  • jordynitro:
