Slow modem DSL download speed gets very slow. If I reboot modem, speed returns to normal for a while. Then I have to reboote modem again. Resterting cmoputer, deleting temporary internet files & cookies doesn't make any difference. Only rebooting modem speeeds things up.

     I just got dsl high speed internet from att on 1/14/09. Everything was superfast as i saw download speeds of up to 600 plus KB/s at download.com and a lot of other places. Streaming videos was ultra smooth , no it needs to stop and rebuffer.  About a week ago it has really gotten slow. When I first got dsl i took an online speedtests at a few sites. They were all similar  at 1.5 mb/s plus, now they're still all similar, except it's a lot slower!  like 470 kbps or somethin close. The max download speed i've seen recently is 55 kb/s! I'm currently paying att for download speed 6.0 mb/s and 768 kbps upload

An option that you can take is to possibly update the firmware of your modem. If that does not work contact your internet provider for a replacement depending on the arrangement you have. (Whether or not the modem is in rental or purchase plan) if its under warranty have it replaced.

I am having a problem with a motorolla modem 221--02-1022 modem seems to be overheating and will often disconnect or not allow me to connect. I have to unplug the modem and sometimes it will still...


Does it feel hot to the touch? Is it dusty? Do you have it sitting where it can get air circulation around it? If it is getting air and isn't dusty the unit might be getting glitchy. They can do that before they go out sometimes. It may need to be replaced. However you may also have a problem with the connection itself on the other end (the provider's end). If you don't have a static ip address most ISP's will assign a different ip address if/when the modem is rebooted sometimes, but they can also keep the same ip address for a long time dispite rebooting. (when you unplug and start it again it is rebooting). You might want to check with your provider and see if they can change it to see if that helps. Sometimes it's their end that is glitchy...

I keep losing internet connection every few minutes. the light will turn red and then reboot itself. i tried all of the different channels and it does not help. what is wrong


If the light turns red then it says, there is a lot of noise on your telephone (dsl) line..
If there is a lot of noise, then the dsl will lose the connection and it will try to establish a connection again...

at this point you will lose your internet connectivity...

So i advice you to contact your ISP and ask them to change the telephone line from the junction box...
or ask them to check the amount of Noise in your DSL line...

Signal to Noise ratio (SNR) value on your DSL modem should be more than 40db for greater connectivity...
If it goes below 30db, you will face frequent disconnection and very slow internet...

Slow downloading


the porblem seems to be at your ISP.
you need to check with your ISP and verify wha is your upload and downlaod speed. most of the time you should have 5Mb upload and 10Mb download as min.
the speed you are seeing is more like a dialup 133Kb.
