defragger: Seems like reflashing did the trick so now have orientation working. Not a hardware issue :D
However I still think the signal loss could be, although wouldn't mind flashing a new modem. What are some compatible modems that people on here use for Telecom?
i know ive posted this before but the only ones ive had work well are JPA and JL2. JL2 being the best. but with yours not working on JL2 i dont know. ive never had signal loss requiring reboot.... i hope its not your hardware. try JPA again perhaps to be sure.
ive tried JVE, JVK, JA1 modems, all newer, all of them worked on 2100 but wouldnt switch to 850. i dont know why, i couldnt force them into 850. maybe they only switch when the signal is much lower, i dont know (ive read of people having to go into their basement to "force 850" maybe theres some truth to it....... i didnt test them out long enough before switching back to UGJL2
let us know how you get on......
