Connection Issues; New DSL Modem
A few days ago, our DSL modem of 15 years died from a lightning strike. ATT was quick to bring in replacement and when we can get a device to connect, the internet is much faster and more stable than it had been in years, however we have problems keeping devices consistently connected. For example, my personal pc has will connect and be fine for a few hours, then disconnect and will not reconnect unless the pc is rebooted. My sister’s game console connected, then disconnected when she turned if off for the evening, and now will not reconnect because the “security is incompatible”. I have done the ‘turn off your modem wait 30 seconds turn back on’ and it does help temporarily. I don’t know much about changing internal settings for the wireless router but have seen that suggested. Since the issue is with multiple devices of different types I feel like it has to be an issue with the modem. Any suggestions or advice is welcome.
