Re: [Connectivity] Purchase your own modem = Comcast interfering
The T4 Timeout issue with the middle channel is a known bug with the Motorola's. It's online, but the status page has that odd Offline message. Personally, I found that doing a power-off reboot seemed to clear up a T4 more reliably than rebooting from the GUI.

I am starting to wonder if my routers may be involved. I have two Linksys 54 routers with Tomato running on them and they have 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1 addresses. They are both linked together where the 192.168.2.1 router is wirelessly bridged into the other one.
I was surfing again this AM and the connection locked up. Speeds tests through Chrome came back really low (700k/300k). When I tried to hit the modem, I couldn't reach the page to refresh it. When I tried to hit my routers, they were taking a long time to come up and display. I would think since my wireless routers sit behind my modem, I would be able to hit them regardless of what's going on with Comcast's network. However, I couldn't hit them for some seconds if not about a minute.
I have some more troubleshooting to do and may need to completely dismantle my network and rebuild piece by piece with testing each time for a few days. It can also be the laptop, which is relatively new. I just noticed the firmware for my routers are 3 versions out of date (1.25). I am going to start there.
Any other ideas appreciated.
