Zoom ADSL X6 Modem "Link" Light Suddenly Blinks Continuously

Just recently my internet connection suddenly stopped. The "Link" light on my Zoom ADSL X6 Modem just continuously blink. It appears the modem is trying to establish internet connection but it's not getting through. I've read through the manual. I've checked and recheck all wires and connections. I've called my ISP, they seem to not be able to diagnose the problem. I've tried logging into the Admin area to re-establish connection somehow, but that proved to unsuccessful. Is the problem the modem or is it the ISP end of it? Is there a solution to this problem?

    i have managed to set up the adsl on the main computer, but having installed the relevant usb into my daughters lap top to obtain wireless internet, it doesnt appear to work continuously. i thought that both computers would be able to use internet at same time, is this not true. even so why cant i get continuous internet on lap top?

    I have the same blinking light problem on my Talktalk Smart modem. The link light goes from blinkling to no light to solid green light. On the advice of talktalk customer services, I have insatlled new microfilters and tries a friends modem (BTVoyager) and the problem still exists. Trys plugging your modem into your master phone socket in your house. Behind the removable plate on the socket is another phone socket. Plug in your modem and plug into mains. If your modem light still blinks, its a fault on your BT line and an engineer is needed. Hope this helps

The modem may have gone faulty so if your isp provided it ask them to replace it if the modem is in warranty period and if your isp provides internet connection through the phone line then first please try plugging the modem on main socket in with an adsl filter plugged in and if this is not the case then problem is definately the line through which the broadband signal come to your place which is suppose to be sorted out by your isp.

I have a Zoom X6 ADSL modem that keeps dropping my internet signal. How can I correct this?


is it wireless connection or ethernet? Zoom routers have a firewall and when you have something connected that the firewall doesnt like (Xbox 360 or Gaming) it will drop the connection. goto zoom.com/x6 and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.

Zoom X6 installation


you need a ethernet network card, if you want it connected to the x6 directly, or you can get a wireless card for the desktop.
the instruction for setup the x6 is straight forward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.


if you need more information please email me at frcs68@hotmail.com

please rate if the answer solved your porblem.

Internet light turned red and won't change back to green


Hi,

If the Internet is red, this may be because of problem with authentication. Please pull the configuration page of modem and check whether the username/password are correct.

Take care

Zoom X6 internet light constantly red


the internet light, is usually a blinking green, showing that it's seeing the internet signal. The only reason it's red, is cause there's no net signal..double check the phone line going into the back of your router, and change it if you need to.

If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue

presuming that the router moved with you the telephone line socket could be too far away from the BT socket or is not correctly wired. if you have not moved the router then you need to buy a booster

zoom x6 in full bridged mode Good Morning all, I have searched google and these forums, but can not seem to figure out what is going wrong with my port forwarding. Problem: Can not ssh to internal server. Setup: ADSL WAN line connected to the RJ11 jack on my Zoom x6 (model 5590C). Zoom router is currently set to FULL Bridged mode. Cat6 cable is connected to Port 1 on the Zoom router, the other end of the cable is connected to the WAN port of my WRT54GL (running Tomato v1.23). Other linux boxes are connected to the LAN ports of the WRT54GL. I am able to see the Internet from all computers on the Local Lan inside of the WRT54GL. In Tomato I see the Public WAN IP that is being passed to it via the Zoom router. WAN IP: 9x.xx.xx.xx LAN IP: 10.xx.xx.xx/28 LAN DHCP: is on and working correctly. Port forwarding->Basic->Has the following (lets use port 55555): On |||| Proto |||| Src Addr |||| Ext Prots |||| Int Ports |||| Int Addr |||| Description X |||| TCP |||| [left blank] |||| 55555 |||| 55555 |||| 10.xx.xx.14 |||| ssh server Now I have no special Iptable rules added to the WRT54GL as of yet... since I can't ssh in yet either.. The server have port 55555 entered in its /etc/ssh/sshd_config and I can access this by all computers on the internal LAN, so the server config is good. But I cannot access anything if I am coming in thru the WAN. nmap shows that all normal ports are filtered, which is good, but if I run: nmap -P0 -sV 9x.xx.xx.xx -p55555 The reply is also filtered. When I try to ssh to my WAN IP from the WAN it times out. Tomato logs are not seeing the attempted scans, though iptables is reporting 'DROP's from other things on the Internet. When I dump the Tomato Iptables config it appears to be right to me and unfortunately I did not bring a copy of them to work with me today. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything that I need to explain further or that is not clear in my post? ANY input on this would be GREATLY appreciated, even if its just a link to something that might help. Thank you all in advance!
