What is the connection type for a verizon model 7500 modem? im trying to fix my u torrent stats and it asks for a connection type, 256k,128k, i have dsl highspeed so what sould i set this at?


That device is capable of working on different connection types but thats not your question. It appears your being asked by utorrent for your speed. Do a speedtest or look at your bill and find out what speed package your on OR just select 768 or greater if thats an option.

Webcam Access through SB4220 Cable Modem?


it sounds like you have configured the router correctly. what you might be doing wrong is trying to access the camera from your internal network using your external ip address. this will not work... you need to get someone on the "outside" to try the ip address.

I cant open my port for downloading u torrent


its not the modem you want to open the port on. Its your Router or Windows Firewall / Software Firewall is where you need to open the port.

I have problem in downloading movies i Utorrent because my port is not open and i don't know the manufacturer of my DSL. Afaq DSL Shamel model 011. my speed is 2Mbbs.


you can enable the dmz of your modem to open ports. if you have an existing or 3rd party router, try opening the ports of your router by also enabling the dmz mode. also, check parental control of your modem. if there is, deactivate it. if you will be able to enable dmz and able to download movies, disable immediately the dmz for security purposes.

Download speed


1.connect through the lan port

2. keep ip as automatic (from lan properties > tcp/ip)

3. open modem configuration page by typing http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your web browser.

4. create a bridge or pppoe setting using vci = 0 and vpi = 35

5. if u choose bridge mode then create a dial up broadband connection from new connection wizard

6. give the port settings over there in modem and use the same ports in your torrent client.
7. You are done . and you will see the speed increases becoz of DHT enabling freely and you will get downloads bypassing the torent server tooo... :-)
Hope it helps to you. Thanks.

Have you tried configuring the ADSL modem router for the internet connection?
Its possible that since you have changed the ADSL modem router, you may have to configure the ADSL modem router for it to work fine. The configuration depends on what Internet provider you have but you may try these steps for now:

1. Make sure the connections are correct. Connect the computer to the LAN port and the ADSL line to the port assigned for that behind the device.
2. Launch an Internet browser and access http://10.0.0.2 and press enter. If a dialog box appears, set the user name as admin and password as zoomadsl and press enter.
3. On the basic setup page of the ADSL router, set the appropriate encapsulation and other settings based on the settings of your provider. If you do not know the settings for your provider, there is a table specified on the user guide for the ADSL router. Here is the link: http://zoom.com/documentation/adsl/5590_UserGuide_EngD.pdf

5200 speedstream blocks my peer to peer sites, mystic island game site, all bittorrent downloads and limewire


Hi Shepherd1880,

First thing:
The computer that you're using for these services needs to have a static IP address configured in your private network and not a DHCP address assigned by the router.

Secondly thing:
Depending on your security policies (computer firewall and/or router), you will need to sure that the settings from your router and/or your PC firewall are not blocking the ports that you need to connect for these services.

Once you know that you have this area covered, you can move forward with the necessary procedures to properly configure your Speedstream 5200 using the link below:

Hope this helps!
