Question about Best Data Products CMX300v2 Modem

Modem disconnects from internet. must unplug to reconnect

My CM300V2 modem worked great for about 3 years. Now however it seems to disconnect from the internet (high speed cable) at least daily. The modem must be unplugged in order to reconnect. I uploaded the latest driver to no avail. The Internet Protocol is set to obtain IP adresses and DNS server addresses automatically. Any help would be appreciated. Do modems just wear out?

That is over 26,000 hours of on time. Since most of the modem don't come with a cooling device. the max on time for any given modem is 15,000 to 20,000 hours.
yes, it is time to change a modem.

Getting disconnected from the net


hi marco22,

first thing you need to do is contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for them to check the line, because there is a posibility that it could be a problem from your ISP.

if everythings OK from your ISP end, better enable first the keep-alive option on your modem, if possible to upgrade the software of the modem do it first, before changing it.

and better called the manufacturer for the modem to make sure that your are doing the right thing.

have a great day ahead.

Hii,

* If you can connect after disconnecting power and reconnecting, it means there is formation of static charge on modem

* Check whether there is any cordless phone or any other satellite devices next to the modem. If so, move the modem 10 feet away.

* If your modem is placed on carpet, please place it on wooden desk

For guest:
Do you see the power is also interrupted while loosing connection? If so try plugging the modem into different socket. Dont waste money for simple problems.

If this doesnt work, please dont rate me down, if it works, please rate me as fixya!!! lol...

Have a nice day!!!

I have no idea why this happens, but unplugging it for a while and reseting it seem to help.
