    I decided about a month ago to hard wire my Desk Top PC to a Netgear B90-755025 Modem/Router Combo. Almost every night or whenever I turn off my hardwired PC, the Netgear Modem/Router service light starts flashing red and all wirless devices go off line. I had the ATT tech come out and replace the old modem (same model) and the new modem is doing the same thing. When I was wirless this rarely if ever happened. Do you think this has any thing to do with my PC being hard wired and what do you think I can do to solve this disconnection issue ? Thank You in advance.

    Can you change the ethernet cable between desktop and modem and check again?

    Hello naresh498, I would have to go out and buy another ethernet cord, which is probably a good idea. Right at this present time, I don't have an extra ethernet cord on hand.
