Re: Occasional hissing & crackling noise when modem is on

Following up to my own post, it looks like the noise just started again -- I'm away from home at the moment, but my throughput just dropped to about 2.5M down, and my SSH tunnel to my home server temporarily disconnected.

dying caps and/or power regulator inside modem or power brick... replace it pronto, or solder new caps/regulators...

I've tried swapping three different ADSL1 modems before I purchased the new Comtrend. Same noise on the line in each case. I'm inclined to believe it's not the modem.
