Re: [Speed] Speed Increase - Not

I can't believe Comcast is still telling customers to turn off or restart their computers, as if that has anything to do with Internet service. Even if most people didn't have routers, the most they'd have to do is renew their IPs.

Is that easier to explain than just restarting the computer?

How does just renewing a WAN IP lease help a modem to pull a new config ? A modem must at a minimum be powercycled for that, and sometimes it must even be reset to factory defaults in order for it to re-learn all of its connection parameters.
