Intermitted internet all day...
Since about 8am this morning when I got up the internet has been going on and off. Usually when it goes out my webpage will say Can't access that page, then a few minutes later No internet. My Roku will say not connected. But now when it goes off, it look like it's trying to access a website because the background is white not black as usual. My Roku is acting weird, it will still display the time, when it usually doesn't when it's not connected and when I click to go to a station, it tries to go, and makes that circle where it's trying to load, then I will get a message like Paramount+ is not available for your region.... I am like huh? I have had it for years.. I am in the USA. Where usually when it loses connection a large black box pops up says NOT CONNECTED, with instructions on how to reconnect. It doesn't do that.
I have called COX 5 times now, no help, they restarted it from their end, I even had the modem restart from the phone while on hold it gave me that option, and it was "unsuccessful", although the one they did was successful and here it is out again after 22 minutes. I have recycled power 6 or 7 times now. It usually remedies the situation, like I just did to get on here. But I know it will go off in a few minutes.
It has a dedicated power supply. No Router or Switch. No WiFi. It is directly connected from modem to my computer. I have tried a different cable, no luck there. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated. Only thing I could think of, is maybe the modem has gone bad... I have had this modem for about a year.
