Has anyone ever heard of a virus or malware causing a cable modem to reset intermittently?
No, but I have seen cablemodem/router combos that can't deal with too many connections. If the machine is infected with some sort of p2p based system it might be spawning more connections than the cablemodem/router can deal with.
What make and model is the cablemodem/router?
Cable Modem is an RCA Branded Thomsen. No specific model shows up at 192.168.100.1.
Router is a SonicWall SOHO3 with unlimited IPs allowed.
But, at a client I did witness a virus outbreak that would overload the Soho 3 there and kill internet until it was rebooted.
That's a likely cause.
Thanks for that.
I may have been born yesterday. But it wasn't at night.
