Question about Computers & Internet
You have a signal problem most likely. Too many cable splitters on the line that modem is on, therefore reducing your signal power. An amplifier will not help because most of the time this is an upstream related signal issue. The best thing to do for cable modems is run them a direct line from your de-marc point. This is usually in your basement in some panel (newer homes), or outside where your power and other utilities come in. Just make sure the line running to your modem is off of the very first splitter. For example you would have your main line coming in, go to a 2 way splitter, one leg to the modem, the other leg to a 4 way splitter that powers your 4 tvs in the house.
Of course it could always be the main line to your house is bad, or just that the modem is bad. But honestly - too many splitters and low quality cabling/splitters is 99% of the cause.
