You have a signal problem most likely. Too many cable splitters on the line that modem is on, therefore reducing your signal power. An amplifier will not help because most of the time this is an upstream related signal issue. The best thing to do for cable modems is run them a direct line from your de-marc point. This is usually in your basement in some panel (newer homes), or outside where your power and other utilities come in. Just make sure the line running to your modem is off of the very first splitter. For example you would have your main line coming in, go to a 2 way splitter, one leg to the modem, the other leg to a 4 way splitter that powers your 4 tvs in the house.

Of course it could always be the main line to your house is bad, or just that the modem is bad. But honestly - too many splitters and low quality cabling/splitters is 99% of the cause.

Linksys E2000 keeps disconnecting


Disconnect the power from the linksys for about 30 seconds then plug it back and see if it stops dropping. Most times the dropping occurs if you turn the modem and router off at night then when you turn them back on the router boots up faster than the modem and that will cause it to drop. Power outages also will cause the problem if the router boots up before the modem.

If unplugging the router and waiting 30 seconds does not solve it then unplug both the modem and the router. Then plug the modem back in and let it boot up for a minute or two, then plug the router in and let it boot up.

Pushed the stand by button but that didnt help me grt the online to work


Make sure that all of you connections on your modem are plugged in (you should see 4 green lights and one blinking yellow/amber light). If you only have one amber light, press the standby button again. If the modem still is not working, check to make sure that the coaxial cable from the wall is tightly (hand tight) screwed into both the wall and the back of the modem, unplug the power cord and wait about 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Give the modem time to boot up (about 2 minutes usally) and try to connect to the internet again.

Can't get to internet. says i'm hooked to internet but cant go any where.


Check the lights on your modem and make sure that it is connecting. If it is, power off the modem (unplug it normaly) and the router (same unplug). Now wait a few mins, power the modem back on first and wait for all the lights to turn green (some cable modem will have a yellow light). Now plug in the router and wait for all its lights to come on. Now try the internet again. If this fails disconnect the router from the modem (ethernet cable) and plug your computer directly into it. Restart the modem as you did before and when all the lights are on, try internet again. If you have internet at this point the problem is in the router somwere, if not call your internet service provider.

It says I'm connected to my wireless router but no web pages open


Since it worked when you last used it, the first thing to try is to reboot everything. Shut down the computer, the cable modem (by pulling the plug on the back of it), and the router (by pulling the plug on the back of it). Wait 30 seconds, then plug in the modem; wait and other 30 seconds, then plug in the router, wait another 30 and turn on the computer. It shouldn't actually require a full 30 seconds between each step, but if you do that, you'll know that you definitely gave each device enough time. That should fix the problem. If it doesn't, post again indicating what happened.

Di-624 stopped working


Hi sailaway!
. Make sure the router is going from the modem, to the port marked WAN, on the 624. You can test the cable, by plugging it directly into you computer, from the modem, if you want to. Disconnect the power from your modem, your router, and turn off your computer Wait 1 min. Turn on the Router, wait three full min's. Power up the 624, and wait one min. Power up the PC. Reason for the long wait on the modem is that it has to get data from the internet, to give to the router. If that don't hwlp, try changing the cable from the PC to the router, to a different port. If all that don't work, try resetting the router by gentley pressing a straightened out paperclip into the reset hole in the back. Hold it for 30 sec. If that fail resetting it, try holding it in while you unplug the 624 and plug it back in. If it resets, go thru the first steps to set it up again. If all that fails, your 624 may be bad. Had that happen to me. The steps I listed brought it back to life for about 2 months, and it died completely. Good Luck!
