The modem is ActionTec from Qwest Wireless
It's like, it'll work decently for 5 seconds, then completely die for 5 seconds, and it's a continuous cycle.
This is my Device Manager. Notice how there are two Network Adapters? It's using the Broadcom adapter (as shown in figure 3), and I'm not sure that that isn't the problem.
Notice how my IPv4 connection is fine, while IPv6 connection is limited. I read online that Qwest doesn't use IPv6 at all, so I disabled it, and it's working very slightly better. They said no matter what address you assigned to IPv6, it wouldn't make any difference to your connection. But before I ever disabled it it still said "Limited" there. I don't get why it's still showing up as such.
Now HERE is where it shows it's using the Broadcom adapter rather than the Intel one, but there's no option to switch to the Intel one! How do i intel switch,,,? I'd at least like to try that. I've tried disabling the Broadcom one but that just makes the internet die.
