intermittent internet drops for 30 seconds

hi everyone,


I currently own my own modem, its a Motorola MG7550.

I have even purchased 3 other kinds of modems from amazon( hoping that was my problem) it still happenend so i returned those to amazon.


I only have internet 100 meg service, no phone or TV and am in Niles, Oh 44446


So, the internet drops.......

i have had this problem for about 3 months and 6 visits later it is still a daily issue of dropping the connection.

the last visit was from a QC manager and a supervisor, this is when they ran a new line from the pole to my house and also a new line from outside the house directly to my modem.


I was told that if they come out again for this issue, they will be charging me $50.00 for a service call.....


It is still occuring, i don't know what to do next.


here are my logs for connection, and also for the event log.


i noticed in the event log, that when i drop it always shows the same errors, any correllation ?

Spectrum will not even look at my log when i try and show them, they say i own it, nothing they can do.

Should i purchase their modem with wifi for a couple of months ?


when i notice the outage, my tv tells me no internt connection as well as my printer.


I can look at the modem and all the lights will be out except the power, almost like a mini reboot..........


thank you

Re: intermittent internet drops for 30 seconds

The connection drops occur on wired devices or on wifi? Direct connect to the modem via ethernet to see if the drops still occur to rule out wifi issues.


Use their modem until the issue is fixed. As long as you are using your own modem they will assume the problem is with your this is not a modem issue so it will do you no good to keep throwing new modems from Amazon at the problem.


If everything from your modem all the way back to the pole has been replaced (correctly), then there could be damaged cabling or other failing equipment on the pole or further back. This would require a tech to open a ticket for different crews to get involved.


Re: intermittent internet drops for 30 seconds

While technically shouldn't be an issue under good conditions... not a big fan of downstream SNR sitting in 38 territory. I would keep an eye on them to see if they are dropping into 37 or worse when things go south... could point to a noise issue to address.

Re: intermittent internet drops for 30 seconds

The drops are on both wired and wireless devices. I can actually watch the modem reboot, all lights will go out except power light.

I will pick up a modem from them tomorrow.

I haven’t purchased or returned an other modems amazon. I found out that wasn’t the issue as it kept on happening.

Thanks for all the assistance.

Re: intermittent internet drops for 30 seconds

I will keep an eye on the downstream SNR.

If it goes lower at least I can let them know. Whatif it goes higher ?

And how can I tell them that may be a problem.

Appears they are stubborn and have sent the same tech out here a couple of times. And both times, all is good.

Thanks for your help
