Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem

1 Answer

Inadvertant slow down.

I have a Westell 6100. My DSL download speed runs at about 1700 kbps when working properly. For some reason it slows down to about 190 kbps at random times. The only way I can remedy the problem is to turn off the modem and back on after 5 - 10 seconds. I have recently purchased a new computer and still have the same issue. Would this be a malfunctioning modem, or should I look elseware?

It could be an issue with the phone line in your home. Try disconnecting as many devices plugged into your phone lines as possible. Cordless phones and other phones for that matter can cause issues with signal quality even if you are using DSL filters. If you can disconnect any unused phone lines running to other rooms, that also helps. If the connection is still giving you trouble, I would call your ISP and have them check your line quality.

RT-AC66U slow download speeds


Run a test of your internet using www.speedtest.net. You should be seeing ping less than 100 ms, and your download and upload speeds will vary depending on your service. Do you have cable, isdn, dsl, or fiber? cable and fiber should give you speeds of at least 10Mb down 10 Mb up, ISDN and DSL should give you speeds around 500kbps down and 250kbps up.

I am using tp link td-w8901g router.my internet speed is of 384 kbps for which i have to be able to download at maximum 48 kbps. when i use internet normally, i am having slow browsing. the download speed...


If you are paying for a downlink speed of 384 Kbps you should be getting at lease around 300. First bypass your router - connect your cable/DSL ethernet line directly from the modem to your PC. Go to http://www.auditmypc.com/internet-speed-test.asp run the speed test and see what your download speed is.

If it's less than 300 call your service provider & ask them to check out your line. If they say that you are getting 300 Kbps or more, you have a problem with the ethernet card in your PC. Replace it.

Of course, if your speed is OK when you bypass the router, you have a router problem. Contact the manufacturer or replace it.

Usually slow or dropped connections occur when the modem is having difficulty communicating with the DSLAM in the exchange. This is usually due to line 'noise'. If your line has external noises they will interfere with the data and cause corruption therefore dropping the line or slowing valid data transmission. Check that all devices connected to your phone line have filters, phones, faxes, back to base alarms etc.

Green blinking internet light on verizon westell 6100 modem.


Yes. When you power down the modem you are suppose to power down the pc. That is what the machine tell you before you get a tech person. It could be that your cache is getting full causing slow speeds.

RE: router problem


You're welcome. anything to help out.

I'm sure you still have the phone filters installed.
So,
Run a speed test from here.
Then, compare it to the speed that you're paying for. For ex., you might be paying for a 1500 Kbps download and 256 Kbps upload.

If any speed (upload or download) is lower than 50 Kbps, call your service provider and tell them that you are not receiving the reasonable speed you paid for and that you have already cleaned your "cache" (they will suggest that you clean several files from your computer but that does not affect your speed).

Thank you for responding. Its rare for people to respond to helpers.

USB Connection


Hi floinmist .

Westell 6100 modem by default can only be used for 1 PC . It cannot orit is not enabled to use for 2or morer computers as it creates a conflict within. Ethernet connection is the BEST connection for you to use.> your USB is sent to you by you provider { ISP} or by westell packages. Its is only a spare cable just in case your PC doesnt support ethernet connection ,  nothing else. 

To resolve this issue you might want to upgrade your modem to a router w/c is westell versalink . You can connect 2 or more computers  { wired or wireless connection } and is more stable compared to your westell 6100.

Connecting 2 computers could cause slow, intermittent and NO connections at all problems.

IF you have other questions pls feel free to ask and let me know if theres anything ii can assist you with .

Best wishes.

Prince

Connection


ok this sounds easy
heres your problem you
DsL is a glorified phone connection its not smooth and is always in a state of flaux along with your neighbors there neighbors so on and so forth
technecoly i would run cable connection that does not flaux with neighbors always have a strong signal and wont interfere with your videos
DsL is slow as 58 bit data fax modem i found it a waist of money and time waiting for system to play catch up
now if you want to play videos with out interupt turn off cable dsl modem this will bring function back to normal in video mode
your comps fine its just your service provider
