Question about Zoom (56600000) Router

Slow Access Speed to the Internet

Hi all, first post so be nice.

I've got a 2Meg broadband speed connection and recently I've found that my connection to the internet is really slow.  I've checked on the ADSL status in the router and it says it's 2,043 kbps but when I do broadband speed tests I am only getting less than 400kbps.  I have called my ISP and they say there's nothing wrong with my line and the ADSL status in the router shows this to be true.  Also, it can't be this computer as it's happening on my two laptops too so the only thing it can be is the router.

This has only started happening over the last 1.5 weeks.

Does anyone have any idea of what it can be?

    Should add that it's a Zoom X6 router I have.

  • Giania Oct 12, 2007

    Sorry, forgot to update this when I fixed it.  I had tried a few things and eventually I got it fixed by updating the firmware to the newest version then a hard reset.  It's done the trick and I'm back up to my 2M.

    Thanks for your replies.

Broadband is what kinda way to connect internet

"Broadband" is usually used as a synonym for "high-speed." The FCC, for example, defines "broadband" as a connection speed of at least 25 Mbps. Here are some common broadband connection types in the U.S.:

Originally, broadband meant transmission using multiple frequencies/traffic types. The opposite was baseband, where only one channel of transmission in on a wire. Ethernet, for example, is a baseband transmission. (Ever seen flavors of Ethernet described using 100-BaseTX or 1000-BaseLX? The "Base" is short for "baseband.") But you would really only use broadband in that way if you were having an engineering discussion about transmission technologies.

Sounds it is your modem. I had a similar issue with my old one. I had a westell 6100F and now have a 6100G that helped. My company had to replace about 150 of line about 1000 Ft away from my house. The cable was in a storm drain and it was getting wet and interupting my internat connection.

Download speed slows when router is on line.

If the router is offline then your not downloading anything, most down loads start fast then fall to a level your pc can handle, aka your connection speed.

My internet speed is slow.I connect it via bluetooth.

by any means even if the configuration of the system is also very good but still with the bluetooth you will not get the connectctivity speed like the broadband and that is same as with the wireless also you will not get the speed like you get from the broadband connection . as this is just the virtual connection with just give you the emergency support not like as usual cbroadband connectivity.

so that cannot be increased .

Xbox Live Problems

Need more information in order to resolve this issue! For instance have you made any changes to your network? Ex. Firewall, passwords, usernames, etc. Everytime you make a change to your network it changes something in the direction that two devices communicate with one another. You may need to run a specific software to have your xbox recognize your new upgrade!

Have look in the router settings for the actual internet connection speeds, as these are a more true reading than the speed check as the speeds can vary at different times of the day and 2 or 3 speed checks can bring different results. your actual connection speed that is showing in the routers settings is the connection you are getting from your ISP. If you are with BT they usually recommend using their latest routers, why i'm not sure, as the only thing i have noted is that the MTU is set at 1500 (Maximum Transmition Units)and in other routers the MTU is automatically set at 1493, so look for the MTU setting and up it if necassary, but not above 1500, also double check all the settings, even put the bt router back in and see if speeds improve, if, you know the BT router is set up purposly for faster connection speeds. Also try checking your speed at a speed test site at a quieter time of day, you will also see different speed check sites give you different speed results.
