Cable Modem News

So the Time Warner representative showed up today to look at the cable modem to find out why I was dropping off so often, well we found the issue.

Basically on the back of my place where the cable line runs from the central box to my place is a splitter. One going upstairs to where the computer room is and one going to the living room for the TV. The line going from the distribution box and the splitter at the splitter end was almost completely deroded. Instead of being a copper wire, it was a black nasty wire. So although I was getting cable connectivity, it was very easy to disrupt and wasn't nearly as clean as a cable modem would desire.

We replaced that connection with a new one and internet is faster than ever on my systems.

Thanks Time Warner! ;)
