Re: Reprogram my router

Theres no need to "Reprogram" your router.
A) Remove the power cable from the back of your router.
B) "Reboot" your DSL modem. In some cases there is a reset button on the bottom or back of the DSL modem. In other cases you must remove the power cord then remove the battery - then put it back together.
C) One the DSL modem has power, restore power to the router.
D) I would at this point reboot your PC in case a new IP was assigned (Unlikely, but to be safe)

Zoom X7n Dsl 2/2 Modem/router/gw DSL light will not stop blinking - trying to connect with Earthlink

Earthlink is not your local telephone company? You would need to contact your local service provider. If earthlink set up your DSL thru your local telephone company, you may have to have them contact them. Does your local phone to you or do you subscribe thru what they call a CLEC?

Internet drops in and out. seems to connect again once the landline phone is used. new filters have been brought - no difference. phone line is clear. ISP have no known problem. speed test is very low. is...

If it is connected to a DSL modem then chances are that it is the modem dropping the connection every time a spike in line voltage occurs. Might want to try directly connecting to the modem and seeing if it still happens, if so then it is the ISP that you need to contact. If not then your router may be on the fritz.

Best of luck

I have a dsl modem from our telecommunication company, it works well though but when I connect my dlink dsl-2640T router, the internet access gets lost. There's this one time that both laptops work using...

I would start by doing a reset of the router to factory using its procedure. Most routers have a reset button that if you hold it down for 10 seconds will reset back to when it was new and erases your settings but might be the trick to get it to work again. After you input your settings again, I'd check the router maker's support site for a firmware update and update the router. These updates can have fixes for just such issues.
I have had older routers that failed and will give weird behavior like you described. I just replaced it with an Apple Airport router and have been delighted with it.

Was uploading and lost power now can't connect to the internet

You need to reset the router. Take a paperclip and push it through the small reset hole in the rear of the unit. You may need to reprogram the unit. You can download the instructions for your unit at
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

HN9000 won't pass remote services

On the Router check if you have UPnP enabled, if yes then Disabel it that should fix the NAT issue and then you need to open the port number 1723,3389. Once these ports are opened then you will be able to access it on the VPN and Remote Desktop Provided you have a WAN IP Address from your ISP. also check the Firmware of the router if its updated or not.

Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.

Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

I have dsl and want to hook up wireless router to run 2 computers when i plug into th router i have no connection at all'

You need to setup first your WIRELESS ROUTER when you want to hook it up on your DSL router. If I we're you, much better to call either the company of the wireless router and call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) for them to set it up. But if you we're using a DELL computer, better to call DELL Technical support for configuration of your wireless router. Thank you.

My internet connection is slow have dsl through telephone company what can i do to speed things up

Your phone company should run some testing in the lines to check what's wrong.
If the speed you're paying is very diferent from the actual speed you get you may need to review the contract with them (phone company).
Anyway... run this test:
Try different locations and then call them.

Lost internet connection

Change the calbe from the router to the dsl modem. Make sure you check labels on the rear of these devices to make sure the connections go where indicated. Is there and ethernet light on your modem. If that is on then the connection is made. Also check if the DSL modem works directly connected to the pc.
