Frequent internet disconnections

I have Verizon DSL, using a Westell VersaLink 327W router/modem. For the past few weeks, we suddenly began experiencing frequent disconnects, especially when playing World of Warcraft or Company of Heroes. Verizon sent a new router, and also sent technicians twice to work on the telephone lines/equipment, but the problem persists. At random intervals, the internet light will go dark, then the DSL light will begin to blink, and the connection is lost. Ten to thirty seconds later, the DSL light will burn solid again, then eventually the internet light will begin flashing again and we can reconnect. It's driving us crazy-- any ideas?

Re: Frequent internet disconnections

I have a Dell computer which gives me dell recommended fixes, updates and such. I don't use Verizon but i do remember that it was telling me for a while about an upgrade needed. you might want to check the websites for more info. I've tried looking for the specific notice and website, but can't find it.

Changeing Password on Router

First, you'll need to reset the router, this is typically done via a tiny reset button located on the back of the router (you'll need a paper clip to press it). After that, changing the password requires you to know how to access the router options. This is different from brand to brand, but typically by simply going onto Google and searching for your modem's address (might be an IP address or actual address, like linksusrouter). Then just go into the settings, find the "change password option" and viola.

Change Password

you will have to reset it. there is a small inverted reset button, hold it in for 30 seconds and it will reset to factory default. There will be a factory default user and password you will need to use at that point.

Do i need a wireless router if i have westell 6100f

Yes. The Westell 6100f is not a wireless modem, therefore, you will need to get a wireless router to connect wireless computers.

Or if your ISP is Verizon and you want a wireless modem/router, you may contact them and replace the Westell 6100f with a Westell Versalink 327w, or Westell 7500, or an Actiontec.

Hope this helps!

Ethernet light blinks no Internet

Serveral soultions to try and they are at no cost to you. First, try re-booting the modem. Your modem stores cache just like a computer does, and it can build up on you. I myself unplug mine about once a week.. Two, in the control panel under Internet Opetion under browser history click on delete and confirm the delete, this will delete your temp. files. You might have exceeded the amount of cache allowed by windows. Finally make certain that you have ipx, and spx protocol installed on your comuter. If this doesn't help, I would get a new modem from your isp, more than likely it is bad. I know verizon modem are good for maximum of 2 years and average 1 year. I would recommend westell 6100 G moem and get a wireless router to go with.
