Problem between ambit CM U10C018 modem and netgear mr814v2?

by awayinla / August 16, 2008 1:40 PM PDT

I have an ambit CM U10C018 cable modem that I got from my isp (charter) and a netgear mr814 v2 wireless router that are hooked up like this:
cable from wall > to ambit modem > to ethernet cable > to netgear router > to all computers (one wired pc and one wireless macbook pro)

MY PROBLEM is that for the last summer the internet intermittently stops working. What I mean by this is that the computers still connect to the router but when I open a browser and go to a web page the browser keeps working to open the page until it gives it gives you a message like "Your page cannot be displayed because you are not connected to the internet" or something like that. This is then quickly fixed by resetting the modem and router.

MY QUESTION is: What is the problem and how can it be fixed? Is it a problem between the modem and the router? Or is it a problem with charter's bandwidth in my city at a high traffic time? If it is a problem with the modem and router being together then this is ok because I am due to buy a new router anyways (my current is a 802.11B and I'm looking to get an N or a G)

While I was writing this the internet had to be reset.

Stuff fails.

To fix this we try another router and then a new cable modem. Once in awhile you encounter people that think there is a way to test if it's this or the other part without changing them. I've never found a good answer for them.

Ambit U10C019 wired to a Belkin F5D8235-4 v2000 N+ that drop
by Techman014 / January 2, 2012 11:54 AM PST

The Belkin router drops its connection to the Ambit. I am running Vista 64 and IE9. I used the Belkin router with a Toshiba 1000 modem and never had this problem. Then Time Warner Road Runner upgraded me to Turbo Boost and have the disconnects all the time. So it must be theTurbo software or setup config. Will contact Belkin and ISP tomorrow. If I use the Ambit wireless I have no dropped connections.
