Question about D-Link DGL-4100 Router (DGL4100)

1 Answer

Dropping about half rx packets

I have comcast HSI and recently added digital voice. My problems began there.
I was using an old linksys befsr41v2 and it began disconnecting and having to be reset 5 or 6 times daily. I figured it was quite old and needed to be replaced.
After searching around, I decided on the dgl-4100. Its reviews showed it to be rock solid.
Once installed though, my internet speeds slowed to a crawl, like 5 minutes to load a webpage. When hooking a pc directly to the modem, no problem, speeds were fine. Comcast support said my modem signals were fine. Lan speeds between computers are fine.
So I look in the stats of the router, and over half of the wan side rx packets are being dropped.
I suspect the modem is mangling packets, but don't know how to check.

I've made new cat5 for all my runs, and installed dlink nics in all my systems (to hopefully reap some benefit from using same branded hardware).
I'm hoping you can offer me some way to check the packets between the modem and the router to see if the modem is mangling them.

I used to be able to go to www.comcast.net ,sign in and check my email.Now i go to www.comcast.net and its all about digital voice offers and such.how do i get to my emails @comcast.net


It sounds like you have a virus blocking comcast.net because I seem to be able to get there perfectly fine. If you have a virus scanner, run a scan. If nothing shows up, download AVG Antivirus and run that. If nothing shows up again, try Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and Spybot S&D.

If you don't have antivirus, get one of the four above.

DHG535-2 and LAN switch issue


It sounds like the LInksys that they replaced was also a router. A router will route packets to multiple pc's that are connected to it. The cable modem just sees the router as 1 pc. When you use a switch, the cable modem will see all of your PC's. and Comcast just allows 1 pc. You will need to buy a router to use more than 1 PC which will be cheaper than using Comcasts Home Networking service which will network up to 4 pcs

Do I have to use the DSL filter. I have comcast phone service. thank you


The DSL Filter is only needed if you have a telephone and DSL service coming through on the same line. You are using Comcast digital voice, are you using them for cable internet as well?

I presume you are. then I would say you dont need the filters.
If you still have DSL and home phone then use the filters on the phone

Lap top not connecting to signial


Yes you can reconnect your router. Whoever did that at Comcast had no business doing that and should be reported and return their equipment back to Comcast asap. It could appear on the bill.

I have a Linksys modem on my Comcast router and it works fine. I don't let them touch it because it uses T-Zones at home service for phone use and it uses a special router to manage it since it has a sim card to run the phone line.

Vonage equipment can be used as well.

I wonder if they were trying to put their phone service onto your system?

Brother Intellifax 770 fax machine failure to receive faxes


I get calls all the time about fax issues. I work for Comcast and have guided people to the right answers about third party devices. We use a digital connection. Analog is a dying medium. Most calls are concerning HP and Brother but I know others fax machines have had problems too. The new HP machines have a digital setting. HP is aware of digital issues and can help you. It is unfortunate that old fax machines are not digital but a new fax is inexpensive if you wish to buy one. Analog takes up too much space. An example: Six digital television channels can fit in the same space (bandwidth) as one analog. That is why the FCC mandated the change. The same goes for phone lines. I Google almost every problem concerning fax machines and if you go past all the upset comments you will get to the comments that offer remedy. I also wanted everyone to know that a second, no frills fax line from Comcast is very inexpensive and our way of offering a dedicated fax line intead of a distinctive ring fax option.
