MacBook Pro - MBP causing cable modem crash?

Hey guys,

Made the big switch from a PC to Mac back in April and got myself a 15" MBP. Love it! Anways, the last month or so I've been having a strange problem with my cable modem. When loading web pages, regardless of browser, my modem randomly crashes and resets itself. Other online activities (IRC, e-mail, Limewire, torrents) don't seem to cause a crash. And apparently the crashes don't accur when I'm not using my Mac (my brother uses a PC but doesn't notice the crashes when I'm not home). Could my MBP be causing these crashes somehow? Virus? Any suggestions would be appreciated! Oh, the modem is connected to a Linksys Instant Wireless Series Wirelss - G (WRT54G) router. Thanks!

QUOTE Thanks
