The internet is down the dsl light on the modem is blinking red


Hi,

I experienced the same problem yesterday with my modem,the internet is down as a result of the fact that the computer doesn't recognize the remote modem,hence the dsl light blinks red,when the internet is up the dsl lights should blink green,the problem is mostly from your internet provider,few times from your computer.

The solution is so simple;

1.Remove the modem from your computer.
2.Shut down your computer.
3.Turn on your computer again after at least 3mins.
4.Insert the modem in your computer and connect to the internet.
5.It might take up to a few attempts before it gets connected to the internet.

Problem solved.

My modem randomly lost connection to the internet


Hi,

The problem is as a result of the fact that;
1.There is either a loop in the modem wire which connects to the computer,which might be due to an internal breakage in the modem wire,or;
2.The problem is from the modem port on the computer or the modem port socket at the tip of the modem wire itself.
Here is a detailed solution to the problem,
1.Conduct a thorough check on the modem port socket that connects to the computer and ensure that there is no breakage in the port and no chip is missing,if there is a breakage on the port or a chip is missing,replace the port socket which is at the tip of the modem wire.

2.Perform a thorough cleaning on the modem port on the computer and on the modem itself with the help of a small paintbrush and methylated spirit.
3.If the problem persists,the next option is to replace the modem wire with a new one.

The above solution will definitely solve your problem.


Have a nice day.

Inadvertant slow down.


It could be an issue with the phone line in your home. Try disconnecting as many devices plugged into your phone lines as possible. Cordless phones and other phones for that matter can cause issues with signal quality even if you are using DSL filters. If you can disconnect any unused phone lines running to other rooms, that also helps. If the connection is still giving you trouble, I would call your ISP and have them check your line quality.

What it sounds like to me is that your router has been running for a while, and thus start to break down slowly. You coul try power cycling it.

power cycling:
1.) Only unplug the power cord from the modem only, for about one minute.
2.) After one minute has passed, plug the power cord back into the modem, give it a few seconds to boot up again, and it should work.

If the modem still does not work, then the problem might lie with the computer itself, very hard to see happen, but it could still happen.
If in then that case, you would have to system restore your computer to an earlier date. that it was working fine on.

So you have a wireless router powering itself off at random intervals?

Change the power adapter if you have an extra.  (Just for grins.  You never know.)

I would also look into new firmware revisions for your router's model on 3com's site.  There could be packet blockage or any other random number of issues that are causing the router to reboot itself.  (There are plenty of routers out there designed to reboot themselves if they detect certain issues.)

If the issues persist...  Try running the router on it's stock settings for a few days to see if it continues.  If it runs ok with stock settings, then perhaps there is a certain function or feature you are using that the router is not handling too well.

There have also been certain routers that have been identified as having certain issues with either the hardware your ISP gives you or the settings your ISP is using for your connection.  A sudden change in the way your ISP is doing things could suddenly mean issues for your connection if you're using a router that doesn't like it.

Example: I was once using COX cable internet in Omaha a couple of years back...  Being that Nebraska is notorious for it's fandom when it comes to the Huskers...  Cox decided it would be a great idea to use multi-cast packet broadcasting to transmit the game over the internet.

BAD IDEA.  Anyone in that service area who had a Linksys BEFSR41 router could not maintain connectivity for more than 10 minutes without a reboot.

I later found out from a good tech friend of mine who worked for COX at the time that the issue was definitely widespread and the effects were immediate and lasted throughout the course of the entire game!  (Man I was NOT happy!)

According to him, the problem was the method they were using to send out the multi-cast packets.  They had set the frame sizes too high.

Ahem....  Anyway... You get the idea.

But check into updating your router's firmware anyway.  That's always a good place to start.  :)
