Question about Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem (55900003)

1 Answer

DSL light flashing constantly

Ive switched from a Thomson speed touch USB modem to a Zoom X6. My ISP broadband works fine on the Thomson, i.e. the phone line set up is good. When I switch to X6 using the exact same phone line set up, the DSL flashing light is always on. Im still at set up stage / installation, so havent yet configured the X6. Is there anything you can help me do?

Hi,

I had the same problem to begin with. Here is what the Zoom helpdesk suggested:
"To force the dsl light to stop blinking, please follow these steps.

1) Open up your web browser and type 10.0.0.2 in the address bar. Type in the the username and password to log in to the modem.
username: admin
password: zoomadsl

2) When you get to the address bar, Click on advance setup.

3) Click on ADSL Configuration.

4) Change the standard to G.Dmt and change the activate line to Start.

5) Save changes and then write settings to flash.

Within a 1 or 2 minutes, the dsl light should go solid."

This worked for me. Good luck.

hopefully you haev installed the software first on yoy computer>
turn off the computer. connect the phone line one end to the ethernet port on your computer and the other end to one of the LAN port on the x6.
power up the (power cube shipped with the X6), the Pwr and the WLAN should come on and become steady, the LINK light should blink,
turn on you computer, connect a new phone line between ADSL port and the wall jack, the LINK light should become steady.

Modem Speed Dropped With Updated firmware


try to lower down the MTU settings of your router. If that does not work, you can try to isolate the concern by using another modem and checking if the same problem happens. if it does, then it is a problem with your ISP but if not then it is on the modem. You can try reset and reconfigure or firmware upgrade.

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.

Zoom ADSL X6 Modem "Link" Light Suddenly Blinks Continuously


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.
