Something happened yesterday and I was wondering if this happens to
others. I came home to check e-mail and found that there were
connections being made but the packet exchange was so slow that they
timed out. After a few minutes of checking wiring and other links. I
turned off the Cox modem for a few minutes and restarted the rest of
the network and everything began to work normally again. It seems like
this is happening about every four to five months. Is this something
others have experienced or do I just have a buggy modem?
Also when this happens it really screws up my VoIP phones.
