So basically I'm using adsl for my internet and it seems everytime during a storm the internet will flicker on and off (ive seen it go up to 5 to 7 times within 5 minutes.) I dont know whats going on with regards to my isp but im wondering if this could be my modem, or my isp. any ideas?
If you are on copper, you would be wise to unplug the modem and forget the internet during storms. I have lost untold modems, telephones and routers to lightning over the years. At this point I simply unplug everything at the first distant rumble....Oh yes, there was that one motherboard too......
