Question about D-Link DSL 200 (DSL-200) Modem

1 Answer

Modem keeps disconnecting, and slowww speeds.

In the past 24 hours my D-Link DSL-200 has disconnected at lest 10 times, and it has never done this before (8 months of use). It simply goes from full green status into the dull orange or no colour status, though not the full red disconnect. Also, when it reconnects, the speeds have been much lower than they have been. Normally Rx Download is around 6400-6900kbps.. but at the moment it ranges between 400kpbs and 4200kbps after each reset. Is this possibly a phone line complication or driver error or simply something to do with the modem itself. Thanks for any help!

Re: Modem keeps disconnecting, and slowww speeds.

--is your dlink directly connected to the internet cable ( rj 11) --if it is having a modem in between --we need to check with the modem status also --the problem might also accure with the internet service provider --check with them if they have any sort of outage in the area. --as well as our doubt about the telephone line might also b correct --as well as check if your router is not placed on floor --your router should be near about five feet above the ground level. --it may create a static and interuppt the signals --make sure that you dont have any electro magnetic devices near by our router --maybe satellite/Direct T.V. or fax machine, etc

Can I use AT&T 2701HG-B 2W Wireless Gateway DSL

yes, you can use them together. they'll find each other at protocol layer 2 (bridge) and layer 3 (router),
and route packets appropriately. Check their manuals to make sure that their HTTP management page ip addresses are different - say for one router and for the other - so that you
can manage them separately without disconnecting them.
You'll want to manage them separately to assign them different wireless-N channels. Channel 6 is
the default, and allowing both to compete on the same channel is a bad idea - give each its own
wi-fi channel. There are 11 wireles 802.11n channels, labeled 1-11.

Diagram: DSL === AT&T 2701HG-B ---------- NetGear router --------------- desktop computer

Each link in the diagram above is an ethernet (802.3 10baseT) cable (except the DSL cable,
which is twisted pairs), and wireless devices can
hop onto the Internet by wirelessly connecting to either the AT&T 2701 or the NetGear router.
