yes, they're jacking you around because they don't want to schedule a tech to come out and replace the modem. is yours still under warranty?

What do they mean by power? Wall power? Go buy a 35 dollar UPS from Frys and call it the day if that fixes. If not, cuss out TW a little.

its prob too much noise in the line. a friend of mine was getting 150% more than he supposed to and it caused major problems with the tv and internet. ask for tier 3 support when you call.

There are 2 signals that are involved in any cable system. There is a downstream signal and a upstream signal. The downstream signal is the signals coming into your house and the upstream signal(power) is the signal that goes back to the cable company. Upstream signal applies to everything except analog TV service. Usually a power problem is the power being too high. If that is the case, if you can get rid of any splitters or maybe move the drop that is running to the modem to a lower lose leg of a splitter then that will lower the power.

i just had my timewarner installed. had a few problems for a couple of weeks. but my girlfriends dads installs cable for them so he came and fixed it. i had the same problem you have. he told me that there is two readings they take. one is inside at your modem and the other is outside up on the pole. they act like a see-saw. if one is too high then the other is too low or vice versa. in my case my signal inside was too high witch meant the signal outside was too low. by the end of it they just had to fix some wiring issues outside. havent had any problems at all since.
