Just replaced my cable modem.  My Internet kept dropping at regular intervals and they diagnosed it as a poorly modem.

New one arrived today and is all set up.  Hopefully this one lasts longer than the old one did.

Well, up until late 2017 I was primarily using wifi at the Powernoodle Compound for our laptops, Rokus, etc.  Getting maybe 45 mbps.  I was having constant connectivity problems with the devices.  And my teenage son likes to do 1st person shooter games online that really benefit from good interweb speed.  Then it dawned on me that I could run ethernet cables from the router to each of my devices.  That cranked my speed way up, and then I pay an extra $25/month for faster speed.  I don't need it, but I do like it.  So yeah, I do have a noodle of cables running all over the ceiling of my basement that feed the various devices.  I love it.  I do still use wifi with four security cameras, but that's the only thing I have left on wifi so there is plenty of bandwidth.

At the same time, I killed my cable tv and got DirectvNow, which saved me about $90/month.  So there was a lot of positive change.

glad you worked it out  :tu:

BTW; that Powernoodle Compound must really be a thing to see   :o, do you have your hundreds of blades, tools, bags and packs stored in nuclear proof bunkers in the basement?  :D :gimme:

PS: Nix gifted me a BM710, and I know you like it a lot and it was (is?  :think:) one of your favorite Benchmades. Do you still have it and carry it?  :cheers:
