I'm on my second modem (router, really) since I got back on TWC in the last few months. This was even happening during the installation but the installer insisted on leaving with a semi-functional installation.

This problem extends, BTW, to the DVR service, too, so it's not just my router. TWC ran all of the cable in the house so they can't exactly blame me for shoddy wiring.
