dsl modem issues, or is it just me?

Anyone able to help me out? I have an Arescom NetDSL 800 DSL modem and lately the darn thing decides to reboot at random times. Or it just loses connection I don't know. Anyone had any experience with these modems before? I can surf the web for the most part no problem with few reboots, but when I try to play WoW, I get almost 3k ms lag, and usually can't stay connected for much longer than a minute or two before the modem decides to puke.

Sounds like either the modem has gone faulty or you're getting a lot of noise on your phone line. Either way, you'll need to talk to your provider to run some tests and/or replace the modem.

I had this problem once before and it ended up going away, but this is much worse than it was before:( Last time I did talk to the provider(Qwest/MSN) and they basically told me that I would have to buy a new modem at $70 from one them or from Best Buy. So maybe I will be calling up and switching to road runner cable instead....

Thanks Certis, appreciate the quick response.

Ok, so update, I am canceling my DSL and getting cable. Anyone had good or bad experience with Time Warner and Roadrunner cable?
