AT&T is no help. While I commend the young lady for trying, she couldnt find my computer if I shoved it....in her trash can. Reading is fundamental.... I have never had much trouble, but today something weird started...10 minutes online and the connection goes dead. Like clockwork. They also said I had low speeds. It doesnt seem slow, but the difference between 80 & 100 mph is hard to see I guess. Any clue as to where I need to look. No new software changes...I usually am online constant, but this is bumming me out....10 minutes coming fast, Ill be back......[b]THANKS![/b]

Should've asked for someone else when they couldn't help you and when you couldn't understand the person.

reboot your computer while doing the above, push the reset button on the back of the RCA modem (small recessed hole) for about 5 seconds. (I'm sure they've already asked you to do this.) If that doesnt resolve anything, check the coaxial connectors, EVERYWHERE that the cable runs. You should also NOT have any cable NOT hooked up to something. An 'open' connector is not good for system performance, let alone interference problems. all that being done and you still have a problem, call AT&T. Have them send someone out to check the condition of the signal at your modem.

I've also had problems in the past. Sometimes even the tech was baffled. He blamed it on an outdated infrastructure. Can you eliminate your household cabling as a potential source of the problem? I tried that by running a cable directly from my modem to the splitter outside the house. If it still doesn't work, this will prevent the techs from erroneously blaming your in-house cabling.
