Question about Zoom 5510B (55100000B) Modem

3 Answers

Slow download speed

I changed to this Zoom modem a couple of weeks ago and at first it was excellent. Suddenly I my download speed is dropping to less than 20kb/s and I can see from the DSL Monitor that although I am not uploading anything, the Transmit rate is sky high and the Recieve rate hardly showing. I can find no viruses and no sign of any adware but all the time the modem is connected it.s transmitting. Can anybody please offer any explanation.

Helllo..................................

ha.. was waiting of problems of this kind for a long time.. i would love to solve this..

if you find no virus in your system and then you have said that you have your system is contantly uploading right.

i am suspecting it to be some hacker who is downloading resource from your system. if you are well verse in understanding about the DOS and internet terms then i shall say you what you can do.

even if not also nothing to fear. this is a damn easy probelm.
we can clear it easily.

    this downloading of resource need not specify that you are having lot of original softwares. he can take any kind of resource he needs.



    if you have got a good firewall like kiero or some user friendly ones like agnitum. agnitum is also good.



    but when you use Mcafee Enterprise edtion of antivirus itself it will block unwanted connections.



    first off all use Mcafee antivirus Enterprise edition.

    then also install agnitum outpost firewall in your system.



    if these two tablets dint cure the disease i shall suggest you some final cure. a very robust firewall named ISS Black Ice defender.. it will surely cure u...

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 28, 2008

    if u are not able to avail those softwares say me.. i shall upload them and mail u the download link..

    but for ur kind information all those softwares are avilable in torrents for free of cost..

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 29, 2008

    ya ok.. please give me time.. i neeed to upload it and give you links...

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 29, 2008

    first link for agnitum firewall..



    its a winrar format. if u dont have winrar download it from any sharing site. its free of cost..

    the downloaded file has a read me file inside// plz follow its instructions..



    next link i wil give after i return from college.. bye

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 29, 2008

    ya download it first and see if you get the uploads stopped..

    if its not getting stopped it means that the link he ahs made with your system has been made authorised.. in that case you can try digging with the agnitum firewall...

    it will show you all the IP address the system is connected to..

    in that see what all are the legal process using that connection..



    what ever IP you feel as anonymous just kill its conenction..

    and one more thing.. if your are using the system in a network then dont give the main drive in which operating system into sharing..if sharing is enabled he can easily suck your data..



    but i would suggest you to install a firewall and a antivirus as soon as you install a new operating system in a fresh manner. that is the safest and best way to be free from all these kinds of tensions.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 29, 2008

    ah.. ya. i just now returned.. so just now started uploading.. if i am able to upload before i sleep i wil give you link today. else tomm morning only..

Probably this is not your's modem problem.
Your internet Provider , telephone network condition, or the site from which you download cause reduction in speed.
Please let me know if something different happens.

Hi you probably find that the modem has fault on the board you usually have send and reciev rate when not downloading or uploading but these shouldnt be that high.
Have you installed the correct software for the modem and removed the old software for the other one as if the comp is still thinkin the old modem is in use it could cause problems but if you installed correct software this shouldnt be a problem.
You probably find you got a faulty modem as it should just be plug and play as long as the software has been installed

Apple tech said to contact arris, modam not working/slow speed 2.0 mbps! help


hi Jim.
Check your modem speed
  1. Open up a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.).
  2. Type http://192.168.0.1* in the address bar, and hit Enter.
  3. Select Modem Status and locate the rate (downstream/download or upstream/upload). If you don't see Modem Status, troubleshoot as if your speed test is less than 100%.
  4. Compare your results to the Internet speed which you subscribe. If the modem speed test shows your speed is slower than the speed to which you subscribe, you can explore these articles for further troubleshooting:
  5. Note: Your speed can be affected by changes in network traffic and usage, which will usually vary across days and the time of day. To get the most accurate reading, run the speed test more than once, including different times of the day and different days of the week.
  6. or go to this link.

Very slow download


What is your internet provider speed agreement? some people have 1 mb down or less, some have 10 and some have 60 or more. I am currently with FIOS at 60 MPS.

to check your download speed go to:
speakeasy.net/speedtest
select a city and check your download speed from at least 3 different cities. If it seems that everything is ok there, you might be downloading from a site with too many people logged in on it or the web site has a restricted download to allow many people to access file at the same time.
If speak easy find a problem in your cable modem, you can be having problem with cable outside the house, 2 years ago, my cable was hit by lightning and it had to be changed 3 times, in this case you might need to call your internet provider

Zoom 1079 modem works fine on its own, but internet drops out intermittently when I add my Netgear N-150 wireless router for use with Netflix... Rene.


If you're connecting the device you're watching netflix with wirelessly, check the strength of the signal your device is getting from the router, netflix needs a strong connection and the download speed you'll need for it is 1.5mbps or greater. If both your signal and download speed are fine try unplugging your Netgear and your Zoom from the power for about 5 min. to refresh your connection

Shareaza bad downloading not more than 30 kb s my system is window  vista,  modem is thomson st 780 wl from kpn,  port 6346 , what now?how must i configurate the fire wall and modem speed...


your downloading speed depends on your connection primarily and not your modem, check what connection you have. the downloading speed is much less than the connection speed.
conncection---------downloading speed(Avg) 256kbps 30kbps 512kbps 60kbps 1mbps ~110kbps etc.
You must be having a 256 Kbps connection that is why your downloading speed is very slow.

Then power up the Modem first, then the router, and finally your PCs, wait a couple of minutes and try to connect.

Slow internet


90kbps is a little slow. You should be getting closer to 175-200kbps. You have to remember also that the ISP only states that the speeds are "up to 1.5mbps", so that could mean that you get less than that.

I would try and run a speed test. Go to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and run a speed test. If you're getting an optimal connection you should get results for download at 1300+ kbps. If it's much less than this I would restart your networking equipment one time and test again. If there is no change I would contact ATT and have them test the lines.

Hope this helps.
