I had this problem as well, noise and cutting out. I found out that its only because you are missing one of those special boxes you plug into your phone line then it plugs into the wall.

Without this you will get heavy static and you will lose Internet each time someone calls because thise small little boxes split the signal. Mine came from Qwest using an Actiontec router and the boxes I am talking about have a little phone on them and they are tan.

You should try unplugging all your phone for 2 hours if you still have a problem and see if it is better, if it is, then it has to be what I am talking about. If your still have problems with it cutting out after unplugging all of your phones look for other things that are wireless (iPods, cells, Wiis, Xbox, PS2-3s etc.)

Thank you for asking for me by name but my answer will be much the same as it was when I tried to answer you before. It stands to reason that if you are using a ADSL router and it serves both your phone and your Internet service and your problem is with how fast that device seems to be working when you try to use both services at the same time that the people to call about a problem with that device is your Internet Service Provider (the company you get your Internet and phone from). I know of nothing that I could do that will help speed up that device with a command to that device. I realize you are unhappy with your service and your problem could be caused by a bad ADSL router (I have seen brand new routers/modems be bad right out of the box) and the only people who can replace that piece of equipment is your Internet Service Provider.

Good luck and I hope that helps.

Slow Internet/Keeps Cutting Out

Reset your router using the red reset button in back of the router. Let everything startup and test it. If the problem persists, then you might have to call your ISP or replace the router itself.

If you're online or using a large memory hog program it can make it skip. Also, you may not have enough Ram or processor speed for it to run properly. Using WI-Fi can also slow your internet speed and cause it to lag. I have mine on a directly connected Desktop running Vista with 2.3 Ghz dual processor and 3 GB Ram don't have too many problems unless I'm doing something online that uses a lot of bandwidth or a memory hogging program.also ur Internet speed affects it 3G aircards are OK just not the greatest DSL is a bit slow for it too., I have Charter 15Mbps internet.

Using camera with skype

This is most likey because of bandwidth issues.
If you turn off your camera and audio works fine then it's most likely you haven't got enough grunt to push Video and audio down the line. You can find internet sites out there that can test your internet speed, if it comes back with poor results then talk to your ISP or look for another Internet Service Provider

My nokia 2700 is very slow how can i increase its speed & how can i keep it virus free. when i use INTERNET on mobile is there any virus problem?

hello,its not possible to increase the speed on your own,it can only be done by your service provider,tis is caused simply by a poor server or poor network.

Secondly,you can download an anti-virus to make your mobile phone a virus free phone from the site below

Thanks for using fixya,

Take care.

Internet extremely slow on one network, fine on the other

Not knowing if this relates directly as i am not from Australia but have you checked with the ISP.

The phone line providing the internet access may be damaged in some way or require calibration to reduce line noise (which can cause slow speeds).

Alternatively, have you got a usage limit that you may have reached. ISPs have the ability to throttle back your connection speed.

Slow to connect to any webpage and at times drops

has nothing to do with the laptop its your internet connection, you may have exceeded the monthly download limit in which case your internet company will halve your speed and if you continue to download stuff they will cut you off, thats probably the most likely thing assuming this info is relevant to you

The sound system from South Africa to NZ is very bad. It is not only on my setting. Why?. The old Skype system used to work very well. I can hear the other person well but my side keeps on cutting off!

Probably there is a problem with your internet connections speed.If the internet speed is not good enough then messaging programs such Skype or WLM can cut while talking.First you need to find out which side is the slow sender or receiver then apply for faster service.

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.

Internet cut out


Below is part of my reply to a latter post of yours.

  • internet keeps on making this weird sound on my home phone - do you have a ADSL In-Line Filter/Splitter like the image shown below? If yes, pls check if the phone is connected to the phone and vice-versa. There are instances where they could have been reversed. If correct, it may require replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Slow internet

If you have 3mb, you have cable internet right? If so, the cable company cuts your speed off if you download too much over a certain period of time. My cable company confirmed this. I can download all I want from midnight til noon, but after that... They will cut your speed off if you download more than a certain amount. You can call them to find out what the amount is.
