Powerline kills cable modem

Having an issue... got a pair of XETB10GM powerline adapters and installed them. Work great! Until shutting down the computers at night. In the morning the cable modem is froze up to the point of removing the backup batteries. Did it two nights. Then tried putting the laptop into hibernation mode with the tower turned off. Took 10 minutes, modem was dead. Any ideas?

Am running from cable modem ---> XETB10GM ---> XETB10GM---> Netgear wireless router. Also have a tower hard wired via USB to cable modem.

Thanks!!!

Re: Powerline kills cable modem

As a footnote... I hooked this up in a friends house. She treid again and said the netgear powerline adapter at the wireless router had flashing lights. The one at the cable modem had no lights. When she rebooted the modem, all was well. The powerline adapters are plugged in to wall outlets. Not sure on the cable modem. Would the cable modem being plugged into a surge protector cause this problem?
