Question about Arris SURFboard® SB5101 Cable Modem
My modem disconnects randomly. The power light stays lit, the online light goes out, and at most the send light will blink (but usually only receive blinks). I have tried turning the power off and on again, but that only works some of the time. I got it working right now by taking the coaxial cable out and putting it back in, but this doesn't always work either. The cable line is new, installed in the spring. I used to have this problem on my old one, the same model, but it was destroyed by lightning and replaced with this one. I have not had any lightning damage with this current one. Are these problems common with this modem type, or am I just unlucky enough to get two broken ones in a row?
