Re: [TWC] Time Warner Wifi internet keeps dropping after wifi up
You may want to post your levels and modem logs. Are you having any issue with devices directly connected to the modem or just everything that is wireless? When you say they gave you a new wireless router was this before or after the problem had already started?
sorry i dont know what modem logs are. we are having issues only with wifi devices, but we dont hardwire anything into it directly. they gave a new wireless router to handle the upgrades speeds for the entire neighborhood. this was when everything was working fine. it was when they upgraded the speeds and modem that everything went haywire. thank you
I had this issue too after the recent firmware upgrade they did.. I was always able to get the wifi stack to crash with lan wifi traffic to ethernet lan but post update it does it more often. I found that rebooting the modem would give a longer time between maintenance than simply reconnecting, which tended to work for actually about 10 minutes before conqing out again.
The real work around? Just use some other wireless router bridged to the modem and disable the modem's wifi. My old ddwrt linksys has been back in service for the last 2 weeks and despite being 802.11 g... it was a great decision. g speeds are faster than no speeds.
thanks. so now i need to buy a new router and figure out how to put the existing router in bridge mode?
