There are problems with some versions of the Speedstream 5200 modem. The main symptom experienced is not being able to surf the web, requiring a power-cycle of the modem (several times each week or even several times a day) to re-obtain a good connection.
Sympatico has released a firmware update for some versions of the 5200 to address this issue. If it says "no update required" then it means your modem doesn't need this update. Get it HERE
