Hi,,,,was wonder if there a problem....on that windstream black box that has power ethenet dsl activity ,the avtivity blenks a lot.....is there a problem


No, it only tells you that it is processing something and that the modem is active. Even if you are not doing anything on the computer it may or may not blink. But generally, it is perfectly fine.

What you have to watch out though are the
>POWER, if this light turns RED or OFF, it means there is something wrong with the modem.
>ETHERNET, if you are using an ethernet cable to connect your computer to the modem, it may or may not blink but it's ok, however, if it is OFF, it means there is no connection between the modem and the computer, check the ethernet cable and make sure it is securely plugged into the modem and into the computer as well. If you are using a wireless connection though, it's ok to see the ethernet light to be off.
>DSL, this light should always be STEADY which means the server where you get your internet service is fine. If it's blinking or RED, it's otherwise. If DSL is OFF, first check the connection between the modem and the telephone jack.

I hope it helped you. Rate for this information will greatly be appreciated. Thank you!

I keep losing internet connection every few minutes. the light will turn red and then reboot itself. i tried all of the different channels and it does not help. what is wrong


If the light turns red then it says, there is a lot of noise on your telephone (dsl) line..
If there is a lot of noise, then the dsl will lose the connection and it will try to establish a connection again...

at this point you will lose your internet connectivity...

So i advice you to contact your ISP and ask them to change the telephone line from the junction box...
or ask them to check the amount of Noise in your DSL line...

Signal to Noise ratio (SNR) value on your DSL modem should be more than 40db for greater connectivity...
If it goes below 30db, you will face frequent disconnection and very slow internet...

DSL downloads are very slow


Your computer is fairly old and you also probably have a slow internet provider. You will either need to contact Juno and see if they have a faster service available or you will need to upgrade your computer. In either case, a computer upgrade would be very helpful.

Im only recieving 1020 speed download, when should be atlwast 8


First, if you are connecting to the router with wireless, there are a couple of possible problems. If you are using Wireless B, you'll probably only get around 4 or 5 mbps at best, and even with wireless G, if you happen to have your router set to the same channel as your neighbor or several of your neighbors, it will slow down a LOT and could even have trouble staying connected. To check this, try plugging directly into your router and disabling the wireless on your computer temporarily and run this test again. If it is much better, try changing your wireless channel.

Second, I'm not familiar with this particular model of router, but I've found that many of the cheaper and/or older routers cannot handle the current speeds we see on cable and DSL connections. This could also be a problem with your cable or DSL connection. To check this, you can temporarily bypass your router and plug your modem directly into your computer. Remember this exposes your computer directly to the internet, so it's probably not a good idea to leave it that way. You may also have to reboot your modem and even reconfigure it and your computer to do this depending on your ISP. If it is still slow, you will need to contact your ISP and complain!

Windows 98 changing from dialup to high speed


You can do this, but I would not recommend it. Windows 98 is very susceptible to malware. You can get things just by going to the wrong website. These are called drive by downloads. It will get very slow from all of the malware running on the system very fast.

Look into downloading a Linux distribution like Ubuntu, or PCLinuxOS. You will be able to find a linux distro that will fit on your old computer and be very secure. Look at Distrowatch for many more options.

It is not possible to use Windows 98 on the Internet and remain secure. If you post the model/serial number of the compaq computer, or its stats then we could tell you if you can upgrade it to XP or Windows 2000, but this may not be practical on older equipment.
