Modem problem

If anyone has noticed, I’ve had dramas with my connection over the last week or so. My trusty old Speedtouch 536 finally died. I opened it up and the capacitors have all bulged or leaked or both.

I was lucky enough to borrow a modem off a friend, unfortunately I didn’t read the manual when I plugged it in and some of the settings were wrong resulting in it dropping off all the time. Fixed it last night, nice and stable now.

I’m looking at getting a Cisco modem and using the 536 as a backup (after I replace the capacitors).
