First restart the modem. Just unplug, wait 30 seconds, plug back in. If that doesn't work, check your in-home connections and restart your system.

Hi,

There could be a couple of causes for this issue. Your internet could be degraded when it gets to your house causing disconnects. You will have to contact your Internet Service Provider in order to have them resolve this issue. Normally, they will replace splitters and may even replace lines outside of your house. You could also be having problems with the modem directly. The may replace this. You could also try to upgrade the software on it. Click here for the update page for Arris.

Typically, I recommend you unplug the router, plug the computer directly in the modem and see if you still have the problem. If you still have the problem then you know it is just the modem. If the problem resolves itself then you know the most likely culprit is the router.

I would also recommend that you update your router firmware as well. Do a google search for the brand name of the router and go to the companies website, look in the support/downloads section for updated software.
--If possible, try a different Ethernet port on your router. You may have a bad port.
--Take out and reinsert all Ethernet cables on your network. Loose cables can cause disconnects.
--If possible, replace the Ethernet cables. Bad cables can cause this.

Lastly, you could be having an issue with the Network card(NIC) on your computer. Network cards are either built into the modem or external(a card you insert into the motherboard). Using the process of elimination and the steps above, you can hopefully narrow down the problem to one specific component of your network.


Let me know if you have any questions.

Please follow the steps mentioned below on the Computer where the internet connection is working normally and check if the issue is resolved.

  • Please type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar, then hit "Enter" or "Return."
  • Please Use "Admin" as the user name and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.
  • Please click on Wireless, enter the Wireless SSID name (name for the Network) and under Security, select the Security type and type the Security Key.
  • Save the settings and try to connect to Wireless on the Computer having the issue.
  • It will ask for the Security Key, enter the Security Key provided during the Wireless setup.
This should resolve the issue.
If the issue is not resolved, reset the Router to factory settings and then try connecting.
Please try to locate the Reset button near the Ethernet ports and press for 10 seconds.

Good Luck!!!!
Please let me know if you require further assistance.
Thank you for contacting.

Try a different ethernet cable. It could be that your cable is bad. I had that happen to me before. My was from the modem to the router. If it was working at the store and not at home, then it is cable. It is should bea cheap fix.

Network cable unpluged error sign


Hi .

With most issues like this it has something to do with the ethernet cable or modem. If you tried replacing it and stillhave the same issue then it could be on your PC.

You can check device manager first by going through the steps below:

Assuming you are using winxp { almost same steps for vista}:

Start > control panel { classic view} > systems > hardware > device manager and on that window pane look for the +network adapters > make sure your devices ion there doesnt have red X on it . If so right click it and choose Enable. If it has a yellow or red exclamation marks { IRQ conflicts} then you need to reinstall the device by right clicking it and unistall > restart PC and make sure you have your system disk for your PC.

You can also check your network connections by going to start > run > type : ncpa.cpl on the run command and it will route you to networlk connections .Check if your network connection is disabled. , ifYES right click and choose Enable.

If that doesnt hel assuming you have replaced ethernet cable/ modem then might as well buy a new NIC {network interface card} for your PC to isolate the issue.

Other works around for this is using a USB connection to your modem or getting a wireless USB for you computer and get a router instead for wireless conenctivity.

In this way you mayu connect multiple computers in the future and wont have messy cables running throughout your house.

Cheers.Hope this helps.

Let us know soon.

Good luck

presuming that the router moved with you the telephone line socket could be too far away from the BT socket or is not correctly wired. if you have not moved the router then you need to buy a booster

You want a 56K modem at least. Modems are becoming less common these days as brpadband (DSL/Cable/WiFi,etc) are becoming more cost effective.

Does your computer take PCI cards? If so, you might be able to find a PCI modem. There are also some serial modems still being sold. If your computer has 9 pin serial ports, you could try to use a serial modem. I think there also might be a USB modem that you could use, providing your PC has serial ports.
