Often losing connectivity


Wireless router modems can be difficult. It helps to put tinfoil over your splice connectors as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me, and from interrupting signal noise. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

I have a dsl modem and an actiontec gt701-wg gateway


Yes this is a normal method to setup a wireless network.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps :-
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router.

I Have zoom adsl x6 and it disconnects after a couple of minutes.


You got to check for some kind of interference in your area.
Maybe a cordless phone, etc...
You can try changing the channel your wireless router is using.
To do that, you must log in into the Main Menu inside the wireless router itself.
For instructions, look in the manual.

DSL loses signal during VOIP call.


hi,

i worked for verizon for two years and I encounter this problem many times,to tell you honestly,its not with you internet connection since if you'll notice,while you are connected to the internet and you make a call or call someone,its interrupted... Obviously,its the phone itslelf,the signal comng from the phone is different from the signal of the internet...thats the reason why you need a modem to convert the signal coming from the phone line to make it work for internet,,,what I suggest is you change the DSL plan from the Dry Loop to the regular dsl with the phone...

thanks and God Bless

The internet connection keeps disappearing.


Change the router's IP address to (192.168.10.1) maybe you have an IP conflict between the modem and router.

Westell 2200 modem


You have options definitely. You can get it through verizon, they'll ship it to you free of charge. You can also buy it at any local store near you. If you're going with the second option, just make sure you're getting either an Actiontec or Westell brand, because those are the only modem that Verizon supports, even if you buy it outside. Since you're going to upgrade your modem, I suggest getting a Westell 7500 or an Actiontec GT704, both are wireless capable already. If you use XBOX 360, I suggest getting Westell 327 or Actiontec GT701 or GT704.

Hii,

* If you can connect after disconnecting power and reconnecting, it means there is formation of static charge on modem

* Check whether there is any cordless phone or any other satellite devices next to the modem. If so, move the modem 10 feet away.

* If your modem is placed on carpet, please place it on wooden desk

For guest:
Do you see the power is also interrupted while loosing connection? If so try plugging the modem into different socket. Dont waste money for simple problems.

If this doesnt work, please dont rate me down, if it works, please rate me as fixya!!! lol...

Have a nice day!!!
