Hi, I am seeing an issue with Hathway Broadband is that sometimes while downloading/surfing it freezes and acts like internet is not working for some seconds/minutes.

But the lights on the modem are coming constant/stable.

Area: Delhi
Plan: 50 MBPS

Modem: Skyworth CM5100-511

I don't have another Modem since it is a cable modem.

Which one do you use?

I have a normal TPLink ADSL modem (with wifi) for my crappy BSNL 4 mbps connection :biggrin:

But I had earlier faced such connectivity issues both on wired (BSNL) and wireless (Airtel 4G) connections and initially I was blaming the ISP and calling CC multiple times, but when I tried a different device the problem got fixed, so I was unnecessarily getting stressed out.

What you are telling is exactly what happened with me today, i was playing game and got disconnected several times but all the lights on the modem(technicolor) were on.
Restarting the modem fixed the problem each time.

After 2pm i didn't face such problem so i think that the problem was solved automatically, maybe it was from their backend.
