File 143550671948.gif - (358.30KB , 400x400 , 213456.gif )

Hello, I have a problem with my internet connection.
Basically, it can cap at around 1800-2000kb/s, but when i let it go that high my internet frequently disconnects and then reconnects after about 8 or 9 seconds.
To combat this, I went into my PC's network settings and set the cap to 10mbits(so it caps around 1000/1050kb/s) Now i experience no problem with disconnection at all, but I missing out on 800-1000kb/s. What could be wrong and how can i fix it? I've already had COX replace my router, and that did nothing.

Keep yelling at Cox.

If their router is rebooting under heavy load, they should replace your router with a different make/model (not just the same make/model router) that doesn't do that. If their upstream equipment is disconnecting you under heavy load, then they should repair/replace the upstream equipment.

As a general rule, you should never use a router provided by an ISP. Use your own router, then let them supply you with a modem to interface that router's ethernet connection to their network. The router you purchase on your own will be of dramatically higher quality than the $5 units ISPs distribute. The benefit is that the ISP's $5 modems are actually capable of sustaining stable connections, since they're far simpler devices.

Well they basically told me it had something to do with my houses wiring and they would need to re-wire the house and get permission from my landlord, and they said that might not even fix the problem. Thank you i will try my own router.

qwest/centurylink kept having routers go out, send another same model, like 5, more, routers fail. They sent routers without refreshing or removing old account setting, so an SSID would have like blablaevil whatever as an SSID.

I talked with a woman and said, we cannot keep getting these routers
that fail in a short time, that the routers had not even been reset to
defaults on most. That most had stuff
on them and were faulty from the start. So after a bit she said OK, I will have them send a new model. You will not have issues with it. And got it shortly after, brand new stable model.

Some goofball I had talked to after adding a service, tv, had a few issues with set top boxes, multiple times. He said resetting the router will break the
set top boxes, I asked or stated so what then, they were bad before I restet the router, while you yourself said to reset the router? Blabla bla he had an attitude
of the most pathetic way. They charged
like $200.00 bucks saying they came out
on a service call and found nothing wrong. Yet found two set top boxes
and the modem/router to be faulty.

The replacements did work well and work well to this day and had them refund the fake service fee with an apology and little hassle.

Definitely your own router is a good idea. If it goes out though you would have to make sure you look at warranty
info through the manufacturer. Keep receipts and all. My guess the router is faulty.

If not the line running to the house could be the issue, inside, watch out so they would not charge you or even your landlord for the repair. Or at least
know that they would test the line
before it reaches the house. ISPS can be ripoffs.
You can usually find suitable routers modems at thrift stores for like 12 bucks, 3 bucks.
