So as of last night the internet connection just took a turn for the worse. I wasn't able to keep a connection for about an hour with a few drop outs (this affected all devices that used the modem) and since then my ping has maintained above 400 to everything I ping to , including my own home city (perth). Is it possible for sagemcom (v3) routers to "die" and cause this issue, or is this an external issue that needs resolving in the field? I can't play online games because of ping maintaining over 1000 to the servers and as a gamer I am slowly going insane. Any advice?
Things I've tried: resetting computer, resetting modem, turning off wifi (pc is connected via ethernet), /flush dns
Any help greatly appreciated :'(

Oh no @Kaname! Sounds like quite the ordeal you've had and I'm sorry to hear about this.
Depending on how long you've had the modem, it's plausible that it may have come to its end with this.
Before we action anything, can you try hard resetting the modem with a sharp object into the little button on the back of the modem for me? I've attached some troubleshooting here for you to try as well.
If you continue to have troubles, it may be best to chat to our team here > https://app.optus.com.au/msg-us?tags=OCAYCMSG and they can organise a new modem for you and begin the investigation
