Re: [NV] Constant outages in NV while downloading at highspeed

My experience was similar to yours and all signs pointed to the cable modem. I had an all in one Motorola SBG900 which is an all in one router / cable modem. The stand alone version of this cable modem is the Motorola 5101 modem. I went through that exact situation as you're going through. It was fine if all I was doing was web surfing, but the minute I did anything demanding, the cable modem would go offline and rebooted on its own. Had a backup of the SBG900 as well and it also eventually did the same thing. If you're running one of the older Motorola 5100 line of cable modems, I'd point the finger at that as the possible problem. If you aren't, I'd still be weary of the old cable modem as the cause.
