How do I reboot my modem?

You may periodically need to reset your modem to clear outdated or invalid network information, which may help the modem process information more quickly – similar to why it’s recommended that you restart your computer or other devices from time to time.

 To reboot your cable modem:

  1. Unplug the small, black power cord from the back of the modem.
  2. Check the front of the modem to ensure that all the lights have turned off.
  3. After 30 seconds, plug in the modem.
  4. Wait for modem lights to be fully lit (not blinking).
  5. If you have a router connected, reboot that equipment as well.
  6. Once power is restored, wait five minutes for the modem to come back online. Test the connection again by attempting to access a public website such as Midco.com.
