Modem rebooting

  • Hiya,

    Tried finding this problem on the boards but couldn’t, so hopefully this isn’t a repeat. The downside is it looks like the problem is local because no-one else has it.

    I’m playing on a Win7 PC on a BT Home Hub (in the UK) and sometimes, not every time, my modem reboots while I’m playing.

    I can’t put my finger on a pattern, although it used to happen when I played Killing Floor as well if that helps (which I’m certain it won’t!).

    Any ideas, please? Any idea where I can start to look for solutions? There are no updated drivers and no-other games seem to effect it.

    Would be grateful for help, please.


  • Still getting issues, is it likely I’m the only one?

    Should I be looking at hardware defects?

  • Can you try reducing your connection speed/browser speed in Steam > Settings > Downloads & Cloud and let me know if there’s any difference? Routers generally crash when they are overloaded with queries.

  • I’ll try that and let you know how I get on, thanks for the tip. Weird how I’m getting that problem and no-one else is though.
