Cable modem. Don't pile clothes or stuff on top of it, or cover the vent holes. Mine had holes on the top, I turned it upside down by accident, and it started doing thattrikotret said:Overheating of what?? The computer?

It's a big blue one.. TDS or something. It eventually died (unrelated to this incident), and it was replaced with a Samsung one.xtrmeocr said:i'v never seen a cable modem overheat. which modem do you have?

this is most likey your problem. how is your cable setup? is the modem coming off the first split from the drop(where the main line enters your house) if you have any splitters inbetween the main line and the modem, check the connections, replace them if they look old and try to get the modem off the first split if it is not. your downstream power needs to be between -15 and +15, 0 being the best.
your upstream power looks ok. is there anywhere on the page that tells you your signal to noise ratio(SNR) or perhaps carrier to noise ratio?
xtrmeocr said:well, it could be possible as 3com cable modems are really the bottom of the barrel but with that low of a downstream level its probably bad splitter or connection.
