Dropping for only a moment.
I have been a customer of Cox, whether under my name or whoever I lived with at the time, for well over the past 12 years and I am just now running into this issue. Randomly while I am playing an online game, and ONLY while I am playing that game, the entire internet connection to my computer will drop for about 2-5 seconds. After that drop, it will come back on and be perfectly fine. Before today it happened maybe once or twice a night, however tonight it happened about 3 times in an hour. I have reset the modem every time it has happened. I have firewall opened up for the game in question.
At this point it is becoming increasingly more frustrating because it is entirely random and I can no longer play reliably. I honestly don't know if this is a modem problem or a problem linking to something else but I figured I would start here. I have a Netgear C6300BD.
