    My X6 worked fine until it started to dissconnect(DSL light starts blinking, and internet light off) for no reason. Initially, it would do this when the computer it is set up on was switched off, but now it does this every 10 mins. I called the Zoom helpline and all they said was to download the Firmware update (which i did, and it worked fine for a couple hours), or contact the ADSL provider, which is not necesary because there appears to be no problem with reguards to that connecting to them. Is there some sort of setting i need to change, so that it would stay on, even when the computer it is set up on is off? (The way is was when i bought it 1 month ago)

Possible issue with freequent connection loss when going over 2 comp on a network are possible issues of collisions on the network meaning that sometimes more often then not, it is possible for two comp to end up recieving same ip address fr modem.

 

solution: first find out ip range supplied by the router in modem. then statically assign ip address to each comp

 

this is done by going into tcp/ip properties of either nic or wireless card and set to use following ex

NOTE: IP RANGE USUALLY LAST SET OF NUMBERS IN IP ADDRESSING TIPPICAL RANGE IS BETWEEN 10 TO 99

ip address: 192.168.2.12 (static ip address for computer)

subnetmask: 255.255.255.254 (generic subnetmask)

default gateway: 192.168.2.1 (ip address of router)

Can i remove ethernet cable after installing router because when i do i lose connection


A router basically acts as a translator between networks to enable inter-connectivity. Your question was not descriptive enough. I think you are using a wireless router to route a wired network to a wireless one. If that is so, the router should be connected to both. For instance an ADSL or DSL Gateway router should be connected to the ISP through the wired cable and at the same time act as an access point (i.e. a getway, DHCP etc) to the local network. If this doesn't give you enough information try to clarify your question and i 'll try 2 help.

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.

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting


Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.
