My motorola surfboard modem (SB5101) has been giving me problems. Very frequent lock-ups. Used to only happen with torrent programs when there were too many peers. Now it is happening all the time. Sometimes with only one window open to the net.
I am running Win98SE I have an idea why. Just before this started happening, I made some tweaks to maximize my speeds using iSpeed for Windows. (bumped my RWIN from 8712 to 23232, and adjusted the TTL from nothing to 64) I am now running at close to advertised speeds, but it's not a great trade off to have to keep rebooting the modem by unplugging it. I'd like to find which settings might be causing the lock-ups, so I can eliminate them, while still not sacrificing too much speed. Any suggestions on which setting might screw with my modem?
