    Last night my Modem for the first time gives me problem.

    Called my ISP what is going on. They couldnt detect any problem but I still could not get online.

    I changed the cable that connected to the modem and all is fine.

    I feel that this is rare and dont happen to anyone. Can the cable degrade.

    So my question is how can a cable be the source of the problem?

    If the cable to the modem is kinked or has the insulation stripped off of it, perhaps it could cause the signal to degrade and not work, but don't quote me on that. It could also just have been coincidental that unplugging it reset something in the modem and started working just then. Who knows.
