    So I've had this issue for a while where a few times a day ( probably like 20 times while I'm on the computer) my internet suddenly stops working for a little while. Im connected to my modem via a cable, and at first I thought the problem was with my computer, but I learned that this also happens to my brother, who is also connected to the modem. The weird thing is that it doesnt happen to both of us at the same time, so its like the internet is crashing. Is it safe to assume that the problem is with the modem? Would it get fixed if I replace it?

    If "the internet is crashing" all your devices would lose internet access at the same time.

    No. Can you more precisely describe the problem? Does your connection to the router drop? Can you still access the router when your internet suddenly stops working? Is the stoppage really only for a second?
