Internet Connectivity

Level 1b


My internet connection has been dropping out more frequently and for longer periods. Been with TPG for 2 years wilth no issues. All lights are on my modem except the internet light (when I have no connection). Will sometimes get the Cable error 8180 and will open the Huawei Home Gateway when trying to open a tab in chrome.

Restarting the computer and modem sometimes fixes it, but not everytime.  Other times you just walk away and come back later and it is connected.

Just wondering if my modem is on the way out or if it is more of a telstra line/cable issue.
