Re: Xoom x6 adsl modem problem

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


ip address: (static ip address for computer)

subnetmask: (generic subnetmask)

default gateway: (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 and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.

If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue
