OOOK so i have some major problems here with my internet connection
I have a 500GB apple time capsule from august 2008 and a motorola SB6120 surfboard modem from feb. 2009
I had my cable company out and they tested the line and did some other stuff and said theres no reason i should keep getting disconnected.
I called motorola as well and the person on the phone said that there appeared to be nothing wrong with it after looking at the diagnostic information (had me type in that 192.168.100.1 and read off some numbers) says all the numbers were within normal range.
so heres whats been happening:
disconnects often where all the lights go out and its slow to restart itself
the receive light hardly ever becomes solid blue anymore (indicates faster connection)
and all of the sudden the link light is orange instead of blue which means its no longer operating at 1000mbps between the modem and router.
and its always been blue ever since I bought it, wasnt until yesterday it started doing that.
Time capsule issues:
some files on my drive have become corrupt and unreadable/drive seems to be louder too.
wifi has trouble sometimes
when i set the ethernet port to 1000mbps it no longer finds the modem and says ethernet port is disconnected.
see im having trouble figuring out which one is at fault here because i read online that sometimes when the router is crapping out it can cause problems with the modem...
