I just had to change my ISP, and I took the package that was the most similar to my old one because I was pretty pleased with it, but now I have a problem.
I got a new modem that plugs into the phone socket (the little light calls it DSL), and for some reason it keeps disconnecting from the internet and my games lag so bad that I can't even finish a round (when I try to move in Blacklight Retribution and Super Monday Night Combat, I keep getting lag-warped back, and when I let go of the keys my character moves on its own). Due to circumstance, I have to plug my modem about 5 inches from my refrigerator and connect it to my computer through wireless. At first I thought the fridge might be causing interference, but then I moved the modem as far as it would go to about 3 feet and a couple of inches from it, and it still disconnected once in the hour of chatting I had left before I had to go (no gaming), although the phone socket itself and power cord are still right next to the fridge.
I used to be on wireless before this with a cable internet provider, and everything worked fine with no fridge around.
The alternative to this ISP would be to sign up with another cable provider, and in that case I wouldn't have to plug the modem next to the fridge but I'd still have to use wireless.
Could my refrigerator be causing enough interference to disconnect me every 20-30 minutes, or is the problem somewhere else?
