Call your phone company and tell them that while you are talking on the phone, every once in a while, you notice there is noise. Tell them sometimes the noise gets really bad and it is difficult to hear the person on the other end, but other times it is not even noticeable. They will check the line and maybe change out a segment of cabling, hopefully giving you a better connection.

Modems are twitchy. They can show problems with the line before you actually would notice noise. A small 'white lie' may help the TelCo get things running the way they should be.

Hope this helps.

My Gateway 507GR PC desktop will not connect to internet


Turn off (unplug if necessary) your modem, router, and PC. Then power on the modem, wait a minute and then power on the router, then power on your PC, this should solve your issue if you have service.

Proper modem driver for the Insignia D300?


If the modem is working, that is all that matters. A different driver is not going to change anything. The line sync speed that you are talking about is not a big deal. It is going to vary nearly everytime you connect, no matter what, and is not an accurate indication of actual download speeds.

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?


First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1 (Linksys) or http://192.168.10.1 (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!
