modem problems

Hello, my modem keeps dropping my internet connection. All the lights seem to flicker on my modem and I believe my modem reboots. I loose internet for a minute or so every single time this happens.  This happens every few mins (maybe once every 15 minutes or so).
Attached is a log from my modem. Can someone please tell me what all those entries mean and if that's normal.
please & thank you.

Hi MrMay,

No this is not normal. The errors are related to a signal problem. So proberly something with the COAX cable. Are you using an amplifier?

Well, please try to use the amplifier again. When signal is not strong enough, these errors in the log will appear.

ok will try tonight... will keep u all posted. But from these logs its not the modem that is the problem, right? it sounds like its the signal strength (either too weak or to strong) that is causing these issues?????

It still could be the connector on the modem, but perhaps it is easier to rule out the signal, by amplifying the signal. But remember, if there is already some distortion in the signal when it is entering your building/home, you will be amplifying that too.

It is always better to rule out some options when you have this kind of issues.
