Any EZ method to check modem & router reliability operation

By maxrpm ·
Having intermitant problem loosing internet cable connection. Provider & neighbor say 'no problems'. Would like to avoid replacing both hardwares if only one is beginning to fail. Both are 4-6 yrs old and have worked fine.
Thanks for all suggestions

Cable problems

At about five years, most outside cable connections will need to be re-terminated to return signal strength to higher levels. I like to insure longer life for outdoor connectors by wrapping them in electricians tape and sealing with silicone. This keeps them water tight and moisture free for up to 20 years.
