I've been waking up to find my Comcast HSI disconnected about every two to three days, and I have to go through the reconnection ritual -- disconnect the router from the cable modem, wait ten minutes, start up the cable modem, start up the router -- to get reconnected.
Does it have something to do with the temperatures going up and down between the day and the night?
Or is it something else entirely?
It is possible that th temps the issue. When cable heats up it expands, when it cools down it contracts, such are the laws of physics in our world. What can happen is when it gets cold if a fitting is put on incorrectly or is just old, the cable contraction pulls the cable inside the sleeve, and out of the fitting at the back. If it pulls it far enough the stinger will no longer make a connection to its connection point, this can happen as a splitter, wall plate, splice, amplifier, or the tap in the case of drop cable in the case of plant cable there are more parts that can be the location of the problem.
