    my cable modem disconnected right when i tried to upload a pic to the techspot gallery, my connection flatlined and the modem itself had the send led flashing. normallly the recieve send and online leds should be on constantly...
    is there a correlation?

    also i have blocked my scvhost process from accessing the internet is this gonna screw anything up?

    storm is right. you need those svchosts running. re-enable them, but virus scan your machine.

    i think your cable modem rebooted itself for no good reason. that's all. maybe it was given a firmware update, or it just felt like it had to.

    The modem reboot could have been caused by many different things. Your ISP could have burped, or hicupped, or many other things.

    As others have said I wouldn't worry about the turn off. As long as things are running ok now, and continue to do so, then things are ok, but if problems continue, then we need to look a little deeper into things. Give us an update sometime down the road just to be sure.
