To start off go to add/remove programs and uninstall yahoo toolbar. Then go to http://toolbar.msn.com/tour_suite/tabs.aspx to download the msn toolbar. That way no pop up blocker can stop it. About the DSL speed - experience has told me that your dsl modem is bad and replacing it would work. Provided you already did you could to remove spyware/malware using utilities such as SpyBot Defender, Windows Defender, and Lavasoft Ad-aware. All of those programs are free and I would advise you to try those first.

Check the speed and call ISP tech support to run the line test
Before calling them do a complete power cycle
Turn the modem off and the computer off and router if any

My DSL 2wire modem always blink like crazy.


DSL light blinking green/red indicates you do not have a solid connection to your DSL signal. Typically this can be anything from the connections at your home all the way to the connections with your ISP. As I do tech support for this model of 2wire modem all day long here is what I would tell you to do if you were calling me:

Are you using the proper length of phone cord (15ft or less): people sometimes have a longer phone cord in use and while it MAY work for a while outside conditions will effect the DSL signal enough that it no longer cuts the mustard. The longer the phone cord the more resistance a signal has in reaching the modem.

Filters: Typically the 2wire modem comes with 3 1-way filters and a single 2-way filter. Often people put the wrong filter on the modem, which doesn't even require one, or they put the correct filter (2-way filter) but hook it up to the wrong end (that is to say it should be connected to the DSL side of the filter). All other devices in the house such as phones, fax machines, Tivos, DVRs, Sat TVs, and monitored alarm systems (AKA anything ELSE connecting to/using the phone system) should be on filters.

Phone service: Do you have phone service? Do you have a dial tone or static? If so all problems with phone service will effect your DSL service as that is how the DSL service is piped into your home...that is to say through the phone line. Do not contact your ISP for this problem as it is a phone line problem creating your internet problem.

Phone jack location: Have you tried moving the modem, it's power cord, and proper length phone cord to another jack? Granted the argument that "it worked yesterday, so it should work today" is a strong one but sometimes putting the modem on another jack JUST to test out any potential wiring problems is a helpful one and could save you a lot of frustration. If one jack gives you red/green DSL lights and the other gives you solid green...that should speak for itself.

ISP provider: IS your service turned on? It may be a bit...hmmm...how shall we say....obvious but if your service has been turned off, or not even turned on yet, then that would be why. In addition, if the above does not help in determining what the problem is, a technician may need to be dispatched to determine where the fault lies. Sometimes it's the box down the road and sometimes it's a few miles away.

Keeps losing the internet and it just got so slow


Have a look at this link:
http://www.epinions.com/review/Westell_Wirespeed_LiteLine_ADSL_Modem_NAT_Router_Ext_Ethernet_USB_AutoSense_with_Filter_Kit_B9961001002/content_420669853316
Usually slow or dropped connections occur when the modem is having difficulty communicating with the DSLAM in the exchange. This is usually due to line 'noise'. If your line has external noises they will interfere with the data and cause corruption therefore dropping the line or slowing valid data transmission. Check that all devices connected to your phone line have filters, phones, faxes, back to base alarms etc.

External Nortel Modem won't connect


DSL uses one wire pair since it runs off a POTS line (plain old telephone service).

The Nortel modems are very old - they were some of the first DSL systems that came out almost 15 years ago. They were designed to work with their own proprietary Nortel back-end (DSLAM) equipment. Since they use proprietary and now way outdated transmission protocols, they will not work with modern DSL connections since they do not support the standard DSL protocols. Unless there was somekind of firmware upgrade I wasn't aware of, its pretty much junk.

Nortel went bankrupt a couple of years ago. I used to work for them and some of the guys who designed their DSL modems worked a few cubicles away from me. I had a couple of them in the early days (we got free DSL as beta testers back in the mid-90's) - the modems are useless now, but I found the power supply worked well with my cordless drill charger.

It takes about five minutes for the internet to connect after I turn on the computer. After that, it is fine


This is the normal time taken for the computer to boot and the modem to access the internet

First boot the modem then the computer

By the time the computer boots the modem will be ready to connect

If this doesnt work clear the Cookies and Cache from the computer

Slow modem


An option that you can take is to possibly update the firmware of your modem. If that does not work contact your internet provider for a replacement depending on the arrangement you have. (Whether or not the modem is in rental or purchase plan) if its under warranty have it replaced.
