Default Internet keeps cutting.

I'm a noob when it comes to internet but ... for the last week or so my internet keeps cutting out, which requiers me to do a power cycle on my modem and router.
And takes a damn long while before it recconnects.
Oh and i'm using telus.
Not sure about Router/modem, except they're stacked up on each other so lots of heat there (good / bad/ catastrophic?)

Oh and i'm on high speed lite internet (256k connection pretty much pree darn slow.)

Marketing doesn't call it "High Speed Lite Internet" either.

And what exactly are you doing on your connection? A lot of downloads or anything of that nature?

Welcome to Telus and their crap of information.

Personally because its telus it could be a few different things.

Do you have their e-care installed?

Not on this computer.
But on pretty much every other machine.
And i kinda hate telus.
They sent me a nonworking Speedtouch modem, so i'm stuck using an older dlink.
And their cellphone service sucks too, and customer service.

First off that E-Care is absolute garbage and I'd be removing it ASAP.

Second perhaps your dlink modem isn't upto the challenge of being used with telus.

If you find the time to call Telus (terminal hold). Tell them what I told them, "make the problem go away or I and my phone accounts will go away". Technician on-site next day in Whitecourt from Edmonton. They're are usually pretty good if you get a hold of a service tech on the phone who knows what's going on. If you don't get lucky the first time call back. Let us know how you make out.
