Slow speeds compared to speedtouch 330 usb modem

I recently bought a 2wire 2700HG-B from Digidave. My internet connections speeds have gone down from around 1200kbps (with speedtouch 330 usb modem) to 300kbps with 2wire modem. Could someone advise the problem. I've tried configuring the 2wire to the required settings ( MTU VCI) but these don't seem to help.

Re: Slow speeds compared to speedtouch 330 usb modem

How do you connect to the 2wire 2700HG? Wireless or ethernet? In any case I suggest to access the mdc (management and diagnostic console) of your 2wire and check the DSL Diagnostics under the Troubleshooting Category. Check the attenuation rate of your 2wire there so you can see if external problems are affecting the 2wire. The 2wire is also a modem\router and eventough it rarely affects the speed of your connection, the 2wire Firewall might also affect the speed of your cx. Another thing to check are the electrical interference on your 2wire. EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) do affect the 2wire router greatly. I mean it LITERALLY. A great Interference can cut your signal strength from full bars to 1 bar even tough your just 10 feet away from the router. You can also check the Broadband Status on the Network at a Glance Page to check if the speed are jumping in and out. And also try to contact your Internet Service Provider or the 2wire direct technical support (1-877-3478680) for further assistance. God Bless!

Connected io router with excelent signal but won't connect to internet , using Beklen adapter , happened overnight.Did work well before.

It sounds as though you are using both a belkin wireless router and the 2wire 2700HG-B Router.
Setting up 2 routers to work together can be tricky and unless there is some specific reason to do so I recommend you just use the 2wire router.

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection

No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

2wire 2700HG - B

Log on to the routers interface and look for MTU size. Once you get there, reduce it to 1492. This will help.
