For several months (started in late june or early july?) I've had the network going down frequently, though for no more than a few seconds at a time. In addition to this, my cable bill has increased due to our house going over our limit every month. I've also had websites and search engines forcing me into a captcha and stating my network is showing suspicious activity.
My ISP has sent people repeatedly to look at the cables and one replaced some sort of box on the side of the house, at the time he also claimed our issues were affecting the whole neighborhood (yikes).
I've tried scanning all the computers that have been active when the outages occur, using Malwarebytes, Eset and Avast. No results there. None of those computers seemed to be showing unusual sluggishness or connectivity issues other than the outages.
I've also just recently updated my Router's firmware a few days ago, and it seems the outages have been stopped or at least greatly reduced. However the captcha issue still has been occuring as well as a new problem where webpages either do not fully load or give a blank white page and I'm forced to refresh to reach the page. Does this just suggest a bad router?
Im having trouble narrowing down the problem on my own, mostly just due to my lack of knowledge on the subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
