When home power line was cut off while this modem is active, re- starting this modem seems too hard to switch back ON again. It takes more than 24hrs to bring it back to normal operating conditions. No standby light shows and seems totally dead set.

you hav two choices 1) remove battery and put it back up
2) with power nad everything connected to modem just unscrew the cable wait for 30 sec n screw it back in

The light pattern you have described indicates that the modem can not establish a connection to your internet service provider (ISP). This is typically do to a signal related issue. To trouble shoot the problem you will need to connect the modem directly to the main cable line where it first enters into the home. You will know when the modem establishes a connection by the top 4 lights becoming green. If at any point all 4 top green lights start to blink in sequence than you will need to contact your internet service provider to "unwall the modem". Remember most internet service providers require you to register your modem on there network. So if you have not all ready completed that process you will most likely not have access.
I hope that information above has helped is some way. If possible please rate this solution.
1- Disconnect the power at the back of the modem. 2- Disconnect the internet cable at the back of the modem (the cable from the wall to the modem). 3- Wait at least 2 minutes. 4- Connect the internet cable back. 5- Connect the power cable back. 6- The lights on the front of the modem should start turning on one at a time; the top one first, the second one next...
If the on-line light still blinks, you might want to repeat the steps above after shutting down your computer. Turn on your computer if the on line light is OK (not blinking).
If all fails, call your internet service provider (ISP) to see if the service itself is down for maintenance, or if there is a problem with high-speed internet in your area.
If you have a router, you might want to power it off before trying the steps above. Turn it back on when the on line light is OK.
Usually, I call my neighbor who has the same ISP to see if their internet is down, before I call the ISP company.
Sounds like your exceed your bandwidth when you play online. Like you said you having packet loss cause you are not transmitting and receiving all the info due to your connection. And if you play more than one, two, or three pc at one time then you just cut your bandwidth severely. I recommend you check on your upload speed. If you have 128k up and playing multiple pc it will bottleneck.

If the Cable light does not come on and/or the Activity light doesn't turn on, there is a problem with the plant equipment and you need to contact your provider to fix it. It could be a cabling issue outside of the residence or something could be down at the plant itself. This can also happen when the temperatures rise or if there is condensation inside the cable as it causes signal loss and increased noise on the line.
Only thing to do is buy a new modem. Mine did the same after a power surge. Left it all night off and in the morning started working again.
a month later, another power surge and never started egain. Just got me a new one and called Comcast to activate it. Problem solved.
Good luck there
