Hey Branden -- welcome to G2G
My problem: Certain activites cause my DSL modem to restart itself.
Activities: Starting the computer, turning on the monitor, and entering a full screen game.
We're going to play ask a 100 questions
Can you expand on what happens when the modem "restarts itself" -- do all of the lights just switch off, then turn back on? How old is your modem? Has this issue always occurred, or did it only start recently?
Are you aware that the "modem" you have is in actual fact a modem/router combo? Have you setup your modem in Bridged mode? Have you disabled the DHCP server on either your router, or your "modem" --OR-- ensured that your router and modem are on different subnets?
When your modem loses it's connection, what do you have to do to regain the connect? Or does it simply reconnect after a few moments, on it's own?
When you lose your connection, please do the following.
- Select Start
- In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
- In the new command prompt window, type ipconfig /all > C:\ipconfig.txt
- Navigate to your C: drive and open the text file ipconfig.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
