In the past few weeks I have been experiencing microoutages on the cable. They usually manifest themselves as follows. Click a web page, site cannot be found. A few seconds later click again, and it loads. This happens intermittently  and I find it very annoying. The frequency isn't high - perhaps in an evening of work it might occur 10 times but should not occur.

Not that it probably matters but I am on the 40G plan living in Khandallah

Thanks

I am having a similar problem. I have just installed a new firewall router that has decent logging and it tells me that the WAN interface has been terminated and then reestablished from a few seconds to a minute or so later. It happens at intervals from 40 seconds to 40 or so minutes. Sometimes browsing is seemless for a long time and sometimes almost impossible to use.

I called TCL and they have assured me that my cable and modem test OK and that my signal level is good.
I'm not sure how to prove that the problem is on their network or modem. I ran a test pinging the modem (192.168.100.1) but that showed no response times more than a few seconds (although it that is shocking in itself it doesn't explain minute long outages.)

Cheers
Jim

I am having similar problems myself, but only on the PC, not on my Notebook, connected via a DLink router

I'm using the Paradise ones given to me way back.
nameserver 203.96.152.12
nameserver 203.96.152.4

Nameserver should not affect the network interface though....

I have had it a bit today as well... However I do agree that it may be a DNS Server issue instead of a internet access issue, as I have always been able to ping IP's.. but the DNS server seems to be a bit flakey in responding... try some other DNS servers like the Xtra / other NZ ISP's ones.. see if they work any better.... in fact I just got affected by one trying to post this :(...

DNS was fine so I am talking rubbish :(

Hmmm, good to know that it's not just me experiencing this problem.
Has been ever since I installed a wireless router.  Initially had a Netgear one but sent it back because of this problem.
Now have a D-Link DI-624 and it's doing the same thing.

The outages affect all three pcs in the house.  2 connected by cable to the router and one by wireless.
When it goes down, none can connect.

Seems to be something to do with the router not playing nice with the cable modem.

It's completely frustrating.

I have found that it's definitely not the router going offline, as I can be logged in to the router when it happens and can still change pages in the settings.

Tempted to rearrange the setup so that the modem goes to the PC, the a 2nd network card is connected to the router and share the connection that way.
Always used to work that way with a standard hub or crossover cable connection to the house network.

Anyone else got any bright ideas??

Cheers
Geoff

There has been some talk on this thread about DNS problems. I use the DNS addresses originally supplied by TCL.  But some interesting info.  I have a PS3 connected to the network and occasionally it drops off the Internet also and the PS3 pops up an error message saying lost network, some hex code and then notes This is a DNS error!

I am guessing if it were a DNS error most folks would be getting the problem. Could it be isolated to a node or something (unlikely though). I am in Khandallah

I'm in Lower Hutt, so unlikely that it's one node only.
It's been a problem for over a year now.

Certain routers, certainly Dlinks, can't cope with the high levels of ARP traffic on the network. Edimax routers are fine as I have done some experiments after having a problem with a Dlink 804HV and 824VUP+ in Christchurch. There is at least one thread on Geekzone identifying this issue.
