My internet connection keeps going up and down

by Ms.Gadgettes - 8/24/07 11:11 AM

I've been having trouble for the past several weeks where my internet connection keeps going up and down. I will be working and all of a sudden can't get to the next website. It is becomming to be a bit of an annoyance for me.

Everytime I call Roadrunner they say there isn't a problem. Unlike in the past when I have the problem where my internet connection is lost, I just reset the network and it will be fine. But this happens several times an hour and will fix itself without me having to reset the network.

Does this sound like a problem with my router or more like a problem with Roadrunner?

I'm using a Linksys router, I can get the model number if needed. And my internet provider is Roadrunner.



I've been using Roadrunner for years, while they have their problems I do like their service, but if this is the type problems I'm going to be having a may have to switch.



If anyone has suggestions or ideas that would be great.... I think I will try connect directly to the cable modem when I can to see if it holds the connection better. For about an hour or so now I haven't had any problems, but all morning it will go up and down several times an hour.


Thanks
