2wire modem disconnects in online game

I play an online game and I usually had a great connection. My modem (2wire) has 3 lights and they should (and usually are) green. Only when I go and play the game, the middle light (broadband link) turns off, then starts flashing orange. Everything freezes and when it turns green again, it exits me out of the game. This never happened before and I can't really go on the game as much now. It never happens when I go on the internet though, only on the game after a few minutes.

Ok, thank you for clarifying.

It seems like the settings on the 1707 have been reset.
On this modem, while connected, type "homeportal.2wire.net" without the quotes.

  • click on "Broadband Link"
  • click on "Advanced Settings"
*note:you may have to enter your password. if you never set one and it asks you for one, click on "I still can’t remember the password". Follow the instructions.
  • On the "advanced Settings" page, make sure your settings are correct. The user name is the same you use to check your AT&T Yahoo Email. and also the password.
  • If you have forgotten your settings, you can call AT&T to retreive your settings at 1-877-722-3755. Have your AT&T Bill and the debit/credit card (used to activate your service) on hand.
They should be able to give you your info.
If not, comment back.

Yes, this can be a problem with the modem that you have first thing that you need to do here is to reset the modem and reconfigure it back, but if after that still have the same problem better contact your ISP and ask them if everything is working from their end...

Ds lite wi fi connect wpa


Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.

DS Lite is not compatible with any other WiFi encription for online gaming: "Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. Therefore, your connection settings for using these games must be set up on slots 1-3.

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL
modem.

Broadband link has a red light


You have an outside connection issue. If the broadband link is red you are not receiving the internet service correctly from your provider. Need to call your cable/dsl provider and let them perform an over the phone check to make sure all is correct.

Hope this helps
