(Firestorm) Frequent Disconnects with New Internet Modem

Hello! Please let me know if this needs to be moved to another forum.

 I got a new internet modem today (my old one stopped working) and ever since then, I've been having frequent disconnects. Basically every few minutes and it doesn't matter what I'm doing or where I'm at. This never happened until I got the new modem but I don't understand what the issue could be. Everything's still the same (speeds, etc.) and I'm not seeing any ping issues or anything like that. I've tried clearing the cache as well as lowering the bandwidth but neither of those helped. I'll paste my specs below. I also saved the log files after the last crash but don't know how to decipher those. I can post that as well if anyone wants to look over it for me. 

*Editing to clarify: By disconnects, I mean disconnects from Firestorm, not the internet itself.

You should probably look in your viewer's log file to see if you can get a hint of why you are disconnecting.


I assume you have restarted the modem and computer at least a couple of times. Modem back on first then 2 to 3 minutes later the computer.

Also, the new modem may be defective. Or it may a cheap one with limitations. Search for reviews on that brand and model modem. 

There is also an events log in most modems. Look up how to access that log and check it for errors. Your ISP may need to get you a replacement.
