    thanks. the router works, but when we have more than 4 computers on at the same time it drops sync quite often. its frustrating.

  • lefty1962 Nov 17, 2008

    the issue is it drops sync when there are 4 wireless devices connecting at the same time. We never had this problem with cable. Im about ready to cancel at&t. its almost unusable.

You can connect up to 253 pc's 4 direct the rest via wireless.Have you tried surfing into the modem's interface if not the number is, enter this in your address bar of your web browser, once there click on run system setup wizard at the bottom right go through it once you get to the part where it asks for the username and password make sure they are your email address that you have with at&t if not enter them, if you dont remember call at&t tech support 888-321-2375 ask for it and they will provide.

I have the same problem. The Sync DSL light keeps on flashing. According to the 3Com and Singtel, they both blame one another. From my understanding, the modem is not receiving and internet signal at all....

Yes, when the sync light flashes it meand there is no sync to the DSLAM located at the exchange. This is usually down to either bad wiring (too much line noise) or the provider not having set the line up.

Have you tried connecting the router to the master socket in the house with no other equipment connected - phones faxes modems etc? they can cause problems sometimes.

Router seems to drop connection frequently

What a static ip is, is the ip address that the router automatically assigns to other equipment. (computers, xbox, ect.) Find D-links customer support line for help.

Connection Failed Problem

Call ATT and ask if the internet has been turned off. That is your connection failed problem. This is the only reason you can not get anywhere on the sync.

"fail: Test ADSL Line Sync" per AT&T Tech Readout

hi,there are a lot of possibilities y ur dsl light wont stop flashing red, 1.could be hardware failure,2.defective lead light for dsl,3.or line issue on the network...i strongly recommend that you contact your isp or att provider so that test would be done by their tech support,...basically you have checkd all inside wirings n as you have said you even tested the nid already...have you tried changing the dsl cable or phone cable? have you tried using another modem? were you using a filter for your dsl? you have to consider also other emi/rfi or electronic interference....but most probably you might try upgrading your modem n see if your gonna get a steady dsl light...the ethernet plugs has no effect on the dsl light...its just the cable connection or line issue or defective modem...i hope this will help, pls feel free to ask if you need further astnce...
