Ok, figured out our problem of having to have the downstairs modem reset stems from using two different modems, a Westell 6100, and a Westell 6100F. The computers are too far apart to link both together, and the house is too old to rewire, and we are not doing the router thing.
What I am wondering is if we used 2 Westell 6100Fs, if we would have to reset the modems every time we used them? Can anyone help? Moving the same modem to the other computer ALSO seemed to cause problems. Does that mean I can never move my computer to another room? If so, I ain't too happy.
