Okay this seems very odd, thankfully this is more of a minor annoyence than anything else.
And I'm not 100% sure which area to post this topic in, so I figure networking is my best bet.
I've got ATT Uverse, best service available in my area unfortunately.
I ran their old tower modem for over a year no problem till lightning storms occured and must have shorted the wired connections on them.
So tech support came out and replaced the modem
The modem they provided me with is the Pace 5031NV.
Initially the wireless connection had incredibly difficulty in connecting anything with the model. I eventually I opened the router setting and forced it to use channel 11 for it's wireless signal. That seemed to alleviate the modem reset everytime I wanted to connect anything to wireles.
It runs fine when connected, no real hiccups.
The only weird thing is that after shutting down my laptop, after being connected fine for like 8+ hours, the router will reset itself after a 10-20 seconds.Usually it boots back up no problm, but I've had to once reset the router entirely to get any other connection to work again before.
Putting my laptop in sleep mode doesn't seem to do this either.
As well, I mean by reset, all the modem's lights turn off for a bit, then it does the powerup sequence, where it gets the signal, etc etc.
Anybody ever heard of a thing like this?
