DSL connection works on the same line provided by company who provides DSL. If dialup line is not provided by DSL company, you can drop dialup line and contact DSL company for DSL connection. If dialup line is provided by DSL company, migrate your internet plan from dialup to DSL by contacting DSL company.

PK5001 solid red DSL light


The trick I found for this is amazingly simple. Take the phone line out from your DSL modem and plug your phone line temporarily into an antique regular telephone for a second, check that it has a dial tone, and plug it back into your DSL modem. Your red light should go green in a minute after plugging the phone line back in. If you leave your computer idle too long, I think the phone company senses no activity and kills the connection after a few dead minutes, and the signal gets booted into some electronic alley. Also put tinfoil over your splice connectors as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

Tip

My Internet connection so slow?


<p>The type of Internet connection you use is the most important factor in determining your connection speed. The three most common ways to connect to the Internet from home are dial-up, DSL, and cable. If you have a choice, cable is usually the fastest, but both DSL and cable are faster than dial-up. <br /> <p>Many Internet providers also offer Fiber Optic Service (FiOS), which connects to the Internet using light over an optical network. In your home, you still connect your computer through copper wiring. The advantage of FiOS is that it can provide higher speeds than traditional copper wire connections such as DSL or cable. Some Internet providers offer multiple options, depending on the area you are in. More populated areas are more likely to have FiOS available. Check with your phone company or Internet provider for more information.<br /> <p>If you use a dial-up connection, there are a couple of good ways to optimize your Internet speed. First, use the fastest modem you can. The fastest modem you can use will send and receive information at a rate of 56 kilobits per second (Kbps). You won't get a full 56 Kbps speed most of the time, but with a good phone line, you should approach at least 45-50 Kbps. <br /> <p>Second, make sure that your phone line is in good condition. If the telephone wiring in your home or business is old or deteriorating, you might be picking up stray signals or cross talk from other phone lines. These problems will slow your Internet connection because the modem will have to send the same information over and over until it's transmitted without interruption. Check your telephone wires to be sure they aren't damaged, frayed, or twisted around power or other telephone cables. If you notice crackling in your phones, you might want to contact your phone provider to have them check the lines inside and outside your home to make sure they are in good condition.<br />

Internet drops in and out. seems to connect again once the landline phone is used. new filters have been brought - no difference. phone line is clear. ISP have no known problem. speed test is very low. is...


If it is connected to a DSL modem then chances are that it is the modem dropping the connection every time a spike in line voltage occurs. Might want to try directly connecting to the modem and seeing if it still happens, if so then it is the ISP that you need to contact. If not then your router may be on the fritz.


Best of luck

I can't log in to 192.168.1.1 to change any settings. It just comes up with an error message.


Hi Friend,

Make sure that you have connected each and evry cable/wire to their respective ports/places. Push and hold the reset button (at the back of the router) for 30 seconds. Turn off the router for another 30 seconds and switch it on. Once the power light is steady then perform the steps:

1. Open the web browser and type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.
2. Type admin as username and leave the username blank.
3. If you have cable connection then select Automatic Configuration from the Internet Configuration drop down and if you have DSL (dial up)connection then choose PPPoE from the drop down and enter the username and password provided by your service provider. Click Save Settings.
4.Now click Wireless and fill the fields as mentioned:
*Wireless Mode: Mixed
*Wireless Network Name: Any name as per your choice.
*Wireless Channel:6-2.437GHz
*Wireless broadcast:Enable and click Save Settings.
5. Click Wireless Security and fill the fields:
*Security Mode: WPA Personal
*WPA Algorithm:TKIP
*WPA Shared key: Any ten digit number.
*Group Key:3600 and click Save settings.

Turn off the router for 30 seconds and switch it on. Use the WPA shared key whenever you want to connect any wireless device to the router.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Regards
Chiranjeet

No dial tone with 3730


No dial tone means the terminal is not getting a signal from the phone line.

Troubleshooting:
1) Make sure it is not on a splitter most of time the splitter goes bad.
2) Make sure the phone cord used is a 2 pin cord.
3) Make sure if you have DSL from your phone company plug it in a DSL filter but make sure
you drop the baud rate the terminal uses.
Hit the more key (2nd purple key from left usually the tip key) until you see other setup.
Enter Password Default 1 Alpha Alpha 66831 Alpha key is the little black button above
the number 2.
Then hit the more key again until you see COMMS choose that and hit next until you see
Baud rate. Hit Edit and then NEXT until you get 300 baud when that shows under new hit
select or enter. Choose F4 exit save changes and then the red X key until you are back at
main sales screen Run a test sale.
If still same problem Repeat steps and change baud rate until one works. Usually 300 will
work for DSL lines.

Call me if you need assistance.

Modem says no dial tone detected


Good morning! It's common to a Dial-Up connection to drop the line during session as signal strength is going low eventhough modem is working properly. Please try to use DSL / Broadband connection as signal strength is 1Mbps or greater. best regards.

After logging in to the dial-up after about 5 minutes it kicks of line.the dial-up company says shows we are online


If you can get cable internet service, it will fix that problem. Your modem transfers 54bps over a phone line that transfers other info over that same line so from the service side of that deal you get the drops time from the internet. It's called (timeout from the internet protocal).

Yes i want to find out if a cable modem will work with your dsl phone internet service?


No.

A cable-modem connects with a coax-cable to the cable-company's network, but a DSL-modem connects with telephone-cable to the telephone-company's network.

Change from dsl to cable


First you will have to log into the router (typically 192.168.1.1 in a web browser)  On the main screen you should see Network Configuration, just drop the menu down and choose DHCP. Save the Settings and reboot the router and new modem simultaneously.
If you don't have any settings saved into the router, you could also just hold the reset button on the back for 10 seconds, this will default back to original settings.
Good Luck!
