Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem

1 Answer

Internet timeout when i get a landline call comes in

Well ive had this problem for nearly half a year and it is still not fixed. i have a demanding job that needs a steady connection. I have a Westell 6100 modem connected to a wired broadband router which then connects to my computer. I have filters set everywhere where they are supposed to be. Basically every time someone calls my house landline phone, after the last ring my internet just disconnects for a second and then the dsl light blinks on the modem and connects like 5 seconds orange light appears. Please help this is urgent. I have contacted verizon tech support serveral times and went through their laborious fixes which didn't work anyway.

    could you clarify the accroynmns thanks donor

  • chriscoman94 Feb 12, 2009

    most likely jack splitters, ive never heard of ADSL/ pots splitters

  • chriscoman94 Feb 12, 2009

    Well if you are talking about the jack splitter as in the little box that goes on top of the jack with 2 phone holes, im not using those. i have a jack in the living room with the phone and a seperate jack in my computer room. I rechecked all the filters are seated properly and called my house from my cell. still nothing

  • chriscoman94 Feb 12, 2009

    Another symptom of this problem is that I can hear a little bit of static on the phone when its on the dial tone. does that help solve this puzzle?

  • chriscoman94 Feb 23, 2009

    Well i tested my phone and did what you said. you know the sound for dial up right? everytime we either call out or get a call in, we hear that sound and the goes out, reconnects a few times and is fine a few minutes later. Also when i go on my modems internet setup. it gets readings of 400 or 800 kb per second. the normal readings are 3000~ kb per second. we are paying for 3 megs a second. any help there??

    ADSL-Asymetrical Digital Subscriber Line (broadband)
    POTS-Plain Old Telephone Service
    NID-Network Interface Device (box on the outside of your house)

    Can you access your modem to see the noise and attenuation levels?

  • Dwayne Bowers May 11, 2010

    Sounds like a bad splitter somewhere. Are you using jack splitters or a ADSL/POTS splitter at the NID?

Please check if filter is properly seated to your answering machine or fax machine if you have any those.
if you are using a splitter from the phone jack please make sure it is properly seated.

    if you can hear bit of static noise on your phone line please try to do this...
    1) try to unplug the modem from the phone jack and power outlet
    2) make sure phones are plugged in without filters
    3) check on one of your phones if you could still hear that noise on your phone
    4) If you can hear that noise on the line please contact your telephone repair dept because they need to fix your phone line
    5) If the noise went out, please contact your Internet service provider because the field tech needs to check the NID(Network Interface Device)

Can connect with full signal takes a long time to connect even after i have done factory restore

if dsl setup the modem to log in. if broadband, check timeout and mtu settings. mtu around 1560 is best . Also make sure gateway setting both ways, router / gateway timeout should be always on , not on demand. good luck.

Compressor went down

The sealed system of any fridge or freezer is normally covered by a 5 year factory warranty. This compressor will be covered, but maybe you need to demand service from the place you bought it from and contact the manufacturer directly and demand they fix it. If they won't fix it free consider legal action.

No dial tone on my landline, but have dsl

I bit the bullet and canceled my landline! I did so without an internet back-up though. I HAD an appointment with comcast so I could stay online, but I canceled it. The reason being, my wifi is still working fine! I'm scared to shut my modem off, for fear I will lose this gift from the Cyber Gods!! I bought myself a "magic jack",it was even mispriced $19.99. I hooked it up, instant landline & fax too! ALL FREE!! Does anyone have a clue how/why I still get the internet? Has anyone ever shut there modem off? If so, did you keep your internet? I NEVER have good luck, I MEAN NEVER. So, after so many years of paying for all these over priced, some would even argue, unessary this day & age,monthly pain in the wallet things. Im done! At least I pray to the Cyber Gods that I am! Im knocking on wood as I type!

D-link router

I believe it is a setting on the router.. There should be a timeout setting that needs to be altered. I cant tell you which setting, but this was happening to my network as well.. I used to be a Dlink fan, but have since moved to Linksys.. If buying a new router for you is an option, go for the Linksys WRT54G/GL/GS series. Sorry I cant be of much more help.
