Why do I have to reset my dsl modem daily?

  1. I have a speedstream 5660 DSL modem. On a daily basis I have to reset this modem in order to regain Internet connectivity. Is there anything I can check to troubleshoot this problem. Calling ATT I am told everything looks fine on the line. Please tell me which modem you would buy if you were replacing this modem.

    Thanks

    Call your ISP and ask them which modem you should buy (they might even work out a deal to keep you on, if you say you can't put up with it any longer)

    By the way your modem itself, sounds faulty. That's why

    Excellent advice! I have found down-level firmware to be a very common problem with routers and intelligent switches alike.
