SO the modem was definitely fuckin’ up things at my parents house this past week. Ever since this big thunderstorm that knocked the power out last week. And even before that my router I had plugged in for them was definitely acting up and almost locking up sometimes or dropping its wifi network at random. That problem was intermittent and seemed to be solved by propping it up off the carpet onto a plastic lid. I think it was overheating or something. But nevermind that, the fuckin’ modem from Comcast wasn’t even supplying internet to the PCs, no matter what ethernet port we tried in the back of the modem. And also the xfinitywifi that comes by default on in the modem was fuckin’ up. It just kept hanging forever or maybe delivering a 1 webpage out of every 50 tries. It was weird problem. Either way, we fixed it by running to Best Buy and grabbing an Arris DOCSIS 3.0 SB6141 for $60. After about half an hour of resetting the thing and registering it with the guy on Comcast and him rebooting it a bunch of times we finally got it to work. Feels nice to have solid internet again. I can’t wait for it to go out again. I can only imagine what it’ll be next…
