So my home internet setup is a Netgear CM400 connected to a D-Link DIR-615 router. Periodically my internet completly shits the bed. No pages load, can't ping anything, nothing. Not on my laptop, not on my phones. Resetting the hardware via the gateway page doesn't seem to help. The only option is to physically unplug the router and modem for 10-20 seconds (I suppose I should see if resetting the router and not the modem would work to narrow down thr root cause). Almost as if the router just gets so loaded down with garbage that it stops working. Is this a possibility? Is it time for a new router and/or modem, or is it just Xfinity being shitty?
