Internet connectivity issues are challenging to diagnose

Posted By on May 16, 2019

After struggling to keep our network and Internet connection alive earlier this month, I started to question my relatively expensive Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router and “way too many” devices were the problem? After resetting everything several times,CinciBellFioptics190511 calling Cincinnati Bell Fioptics (our ISP) and shrugging my shoulders, I left town and instructed Brenda on how to reboot in order to get things running again (I also unplugged several devices that are still connected by CAT5 cabling).

Wouldn’t you know, without my computer on, printers plugged in or TV connecting by MOCA … everything remained connected. NetgearR7000

To make diagnosing even more complicated, upon my return, I plugged everything back in and not a peep of a problem. Perhaps it was after all an issue on the provider end??? Who knows … but it is good to have everything working and stable again.
