Perodic disconnects

Message 1 of 1

For the past week or so I have been expieriencing random disconnects.  Happens about 3-4 times during off-peak hours and happens about 10+ times during peak hours (6PM+).  I have tried changing out modems, and phones cords but it does not help.  When I disconnect, my internet light on my modem goes out and my DSL light starts flashing. 



I recently changed my service package from internet only to internet and phone services.  My old service was supposed to be deactivated and my new service was supposed to be activate today.  I called Verizon and they said my old service has in fact been deactivate, and I have gotten an email saying my new service has been activated.  My phone currently is not working, but im still able to connect to internet, even though it goes out periodiclly.  When I talked to the verizon guy he said give it till 630 PM for the new service to be activated, even though I told him i recieved an email stating that its been activated.


I ran a diagnostic report on my modem (westell 6100)

I'm getting a little irritaed at this and Verizon's either lack of knowledge or lack of motivation to fix this problem.
