It happens on both wired and wireless devices, and I can still access other computers locally when it happens. Can anyone help me determine whats happening?
I hate you.
muppet: Is your cable modem getting hot? Do you have it shoved in a box somewhere? If so, try getting some airflow around the box. Putting it up on clothes pegs can really help with heat dissipation.
Just a suggestion - I could be way off track here!
sbiddle: What DNS servers are you using?
freitasm: You should be using

freitasm: Since the Clearnet DNS are better maintained and more reliable than the Paradise DNS ones, which always seem to be causing problems.
I can't understand why an ISP provides two sets of redundants DNS, except for legacy purposes. Even so, it would be a lot easier for them to just make the old IPs arrive on the new ones anyway...
Behodar: Over the past couple of days I've had issues where I can't make new connections but existing ones keep working. For example, I can't browse to any sites, but streaming video continues to play if I'd started it before the dropout. After a minute or so, all is back to normal.
Does that sound like the same issue or does yours drop out completely?
dets00b: when it drops out see if you can ping your router or dns. If your not losing any lights on the cable modem it might be packet loss due to high transmit or receive power on your modem. You can find out by calling and asking them to check it.
r2b2: I had similar problems with both my Internet & TBox modems and they ended up sending a technician out. He re-did some of the F-type connectors as apparently the ones that I had were incorrectly done (the centre wire wasn't flush with the end of the connector like it should be apparently)
I don't seem to have had any issues since - so perhaps it could be something similar?
