Ever since I upgraded my internet connection (from a slower broadband to a faster one - same company), I have been recieving periodic lapses in connection. This will happen about every 15 minutes for 30 seconds approximately. As I type this, I have the modem now connected directly to my computer, and have not experienced a lapse in my connection yet. Is it possible that it is my router that A)cannot handle the incresed speed of the new modem; or B) is failiing due to prolonged use and old age. I have had this Linksys BEFSR41 modem for approximately 4 years. AS a result of this these discnonnections, I have not been able to use Xbox Live, or play online games for about two weeks, so I would really like it resolved. Thanks for your help.
