Modem keeps cycling

The modem periodically resets itself multiple times in a row. We will have a good connection, and then the modem resets itself, and a few minutes later resets itself again. There are no storms or bad weather to cause problems.

Do we need a new modem?

If it just has happened in past few hours, it may be a new software update/installation.

What is your current sw version?

I'm not sure how to see what software version we have.

Could it be overheating?

I guess it could be overheating.  I'll shut it off and give it a good vacuuming.

Could be firmware update as Bob said too. Leave it on overnight and see how it is tomorrow
