Geez, it seems all my tech is dying in the past year.
So I have this modem-router combo. (http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENUS267&q=motorola+sbg6580&gs_upl=5410l19061l0l20451l12l12l0l2l2l0l219l1463l1.8.1l10&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=16215031598538040147&sa=X&ei=q31GTpuzAszC0AHwuI2KCA&ved=0CHAQ8wIwAw) I've had it for 7 months. The first thing I've noticed is that I had to do hard restarts every 3 days, which I was okay with. Annoyed with, but okay with.
Last night, it just flat out didn't work for 90 minutes. I couldn't figure out if it was the modem itself or the router. All I know is that I help having to do hard resets every 10 minutes.
Anyone got any suggestions on better external modem and routers? I'll be calling Best Buy because I have their Geek Squad 2 Year Service thing, so we'll see what I can get out of that. I'm just asking this in the meantime.
