damaged modem - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi
I have suffered this due to lightning strike on the line some miles away from the modem. Even if local cables are underground and a transient suppressor is fitted, some of the line can emerge over ground at some point, and lightning can be real sneaky and bypass a transient suppressor, particularly a cheapi one.
Alternatively, you might have suffered just a random component failure.
