I can fix this by rebooting the router in its settings or unplugging and re-plugging the coaxial cable in. This will let it work from anywhere between 5 minutes and 5 hours. Here are a list of things I have tried:
  • Reset by unplugging power and plugging it back in after 30 seconds.
  • Different coaxial cable.
  • Factory reset.
  • Calling my ISP, Americable (I'm in the USN stationed in Japan so it's my only option) and talking to their tech support who told me that they will make changes in my router so it shouldn't happen again. But it does, surprise surprise.
If you guys need anymore information, let me know. I have the event log if posting that would help. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated, guys.

So, just as a background, I have a Motorola Surfboard SBG6580. The issue has been that my router will randomly just drop connection and unsuccessfully try and reset itself. By unsuccessfully, I mean it'll just initiate down the line of lights where the lights 1 and 2 will remain steady but the 3rd just flashes.

I can fix this by rebooting the router in its settings or unplugging and re-plugging the coaxial cable in. This will let it work from anywhere between 5 minutes and 5 hours. Here are a list of things I have tried:
  • Reset by unplugging power and plugging it back in after 30 seconds.
  • Different coaxial cable.
  • Factory reset.
  • Calling my ISP, Americable (I'm in the USN stationed in Japan so it's my only option) and talking to their tech support who told me that they will make changes in my router so it shouldn't happen again. But it does, surprise surprise.
If you guys need anymore information, let me know. I have the event log if posting that would help. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated, guys.
Unless you want to go to component level repair, a new router is your best bet.
Btw, does Ethernet work? If it does you can just connect another router to your current one via cable and use the wifi of the new one. That way you won't have to go through your ISP to get a new router.

Alright first of all.... That's not a router.. It's a wireless gateway which is a modem with a router built into it otherwise known as a 2lemtahsdd3.. Now my guess is that it's probably fried.. Try returning it to your ISP to get a new one.

A what?
Now my guess is that it's probably fried..
If it was fried it wouldn't work at all. It probably has capacitors with increased ESR or decreased capacitance, or both. Either way the ripple went up and some chip is crashing every now and then. There's also a good chance that there is simply a faulty chip. Of course it could be something else, but unless you know what your doing, fixing it is probably going to be expensive and not worth it.

I have the same issue with the SB6183. Goes down at least twice a day, sometimes 3.

I correct my statement.. It's not fried.. It's a problem with the power unit.. Sorry about that.. So the best bet would be to return it unless you know what your doing. No a wireless gateway is different from a router.. A wireless gateway is a modem, router, and it can be used for the phone too.. That's why it's actual name is a 2lemtahsdd3.. Let's brake that down..

Probably not the power unit itself, but rather the sub power delivery circuitry (not the external power adapter) or one of the main ICs.

Thanks for that, I didn't know these abbreviations.
Btw, isn't a 2 in 1 modem and router the more popular term?

Yeah.. But really a wireless gateway is for the phone and internet (modem).. It just also has a router built into it to save companies like Comcast,AT&T, Verizon, etc; money so they didn't have to pay for multiple boxes from different companies.
