My zoom x6 modem doesn't block pings (ICMP). How do I configure?

When I try using "shields up" to test my firewall, it fails the ping test, responding. I cannot find any way to configure it to prevent this.

My computer can see the router and the router sees the modem but i cant get the internet to my computer


by "see" you mean it answers to ping test? if so I guess that when you ping some public IP (eg. 4.2.2.2) it does not get a ping reply... right? have you tested pinging an IP address or a internet domain. If IP address works fine but domain doesnt your problem is on DNS resolution, if both of them doesnt work seem something routing/conectivity related, try running a tracert from your PC and see how far you get on the network. If you dont pass your router then you must check its WAN configuration.

I have a Zoom X6 ADSL modem that keeps dropping my internet signal. How can I correct this?


is it wireless connection or ethernet? Zoom routers have a firewall and when you have something connected that the firewall doesnt like (Xbox 360 or Gaming) it will drop the connection. goto zoom.com/x6 and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.

ADSL Zoom x6 5590 DNS 360 Problem


Yes the router assigns an internal IP address. connect it up then using your PC go into the configuration of your router (http://10.0.0.2) and look under system status, scroll to the bottom and under DCHP status you will see a list of all clients connected. Your Xbox will be listed along with its internal IP address.

Internet light turned red and won't change back to green


Hi,

If the Internet is red, this may be because of problem with authentication. Please pull the configuration page of modem and check whether the username/password are correct.

Take care

You should try pinging it to see if you are getting a direct connection?

ADSL modem, firewalls


What did you have her ping an IP Address or a domain name?

Was she attempting to ping the gateway address on the lan side of this adsl device? In that case either DHCP is not supplying a dynamic IP address or the static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway address configuration in her adapter is incorrect.

If she pinged an IP Address and it is not the prior issue I would favor that the modem side of the device are not set properly for her internet service provider. The ISP's support/help website may help in determining the correct values here.

If she pinged a domain name like www.google.com then it could be the same as either of the above or it could be a lack of DNS addresses in the router or her local adapter configuration whereever they are preferred in her environment?
