Centurylink problems

Hops number 5 and 6 are usually outside your ISP's network. If that is the case with your ISP, then their refusal is simply due to the problem being outside of their jurisdiction.

Movement from one router to another, both of which are outside your ISP's network, would mean you ought to be able to run multiple trace routes at different times of the day and night and receive different outputs, meaning your connection to the EA authentication servers should be using different routers at different times for hops 5 and 6 as the load on Internet backbone lines and routing centers varies.

Isolating your connectivity problems to two different hops would suggest packet fragmentation and not outright packet loss. I suggest trying out some of the tools available at Home of Gibson Research Corporation in identifying what exactly the terminal nodes are in these hops you have determined as causing your connectivity problems with EA's servers.

Aside from the above, I hesitate to base any further advice solely off of an Internet communication issue involving more than one hop. It should, generally speaking, be possible to further isolate your problem to one hop, which would implicate only two nodes. I suggest running some basic WAN diagnostics on the computer in question using the resources provided at DSLReports Home Broadband ISP Reviews News Tools and Forums to ensure you're not barking up the wrong tree.

Internet not working , can't connect to the internet

Is your internet not working? Unable to connect to any websites? Read more below to help resolve these issues.

First, you need to make sure your home network is configured and up and running. You can click here to read my article on how to configure a home network.

One of the first troubleshooting steps I recommend is to check the network cables in the network. Make sure all cables are firmly seated in the connection port. Also, if you have cable splitters I recommend you unplug the coaxial cables and plug them back in. Simply resetting cables can resolve connectivity issues. Replacing cable splitters can also help as well. They are fairly cheap to purchase and your Internet Provider may be able to send you out some for free. Continue on with the steps below if this does not help,

1)First, you can test if you are able to send data past your local gateway. Your gateway is your router. It is the gateway to the outside world. If your internet is working properly, you should be able to communicate past this.

In Windows you can use the ping command to test,
Click Start > Run and in the run box type "Command" or "cmd". A black DOS window should open. In the DOS window, type
ping or any website you have in mind. Try multiple ones.
Below is example of a working internet connection,

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of d
Reply from bytes=32 time=45ms TTL=52
Reply from bytes=32 time=46ms TTL=52
Reply from bytes=32 time=45ms TTL=52
Reply from bytes=32 time=45ms TTL=52

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 45ms, Maximum = 46ms, Average = 45ms

As you can see, I am able to communicate with If you ARE able to communicate past your gateway, but still unable to visit websites then continue below. If you are NOT able to communicate past the gateway, SKIP to step 5

2) You may have an issue with your Internet Browser. Try using a different internet browser to see if you can view websites. If you are able to with different browser, then you narrowed the problem down to that browser. Some examples of browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla FireFox, Safari and Google Chrome.

3) If you are unable to get any Internet Browsers to work, then there may be a different problem. You could have a Firewall on your computer, or a anti virus program that is causing problems. The best way to test this out is to disable any anti-virus programs or firewalls you have.

4)Simply, the website you are trying to go to is down due to technical reasons you can't control. Make sure this is not the case by visiting other websites.

5) Make sure your computer is setup to obtain an IP address automatically and to obtain DNS information automatically. Why? When you purchase internet service from a Internet Service Provider, they typically assign you DCHP addresses and these can change all the time. So, if you input an IP address manually, then it may work for a while and stop working.

-To make sure your computer is configured to obtain this information automatically, in windows, go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections. Right click on Wireless Area Connection or Local Area connection depending on if you are wired or wireless and choose Properties. In Properties, select IPV4 and click properties. Make sure Obtain IP address and Obtain DNS automatically is checked.

6)Once you do step 5 and still have trouble, your internet service just may be down due to technical reasons outside of your control. You can contact your Internet Service provider and speak with technical support to confirm this.

7)Check step 3 as this can cause routing issues.

8)Power cycle your equipment. This basically means to turn off and back on. The proper way to do this is in a certain order(MODEM > ROUTER > COMPUTER)

--Turn off your modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds plug in your modem. Wait 30 seconds and plug in your router. Wait 30 seconds and turn on your computer. On your computer, renew your ip address. To do this, go to Start > Run and in the run box type "cmd" or "command". In the black DOS window, type
ipconfig /release
after the command runs type
ipconfig /renew

I hope this article was informative!

Check for DOS, Check to see if you are infected...

When you first turn on your computer (BEFORE DIALING INTO YOUR ISP), open a MS-DOS Prompt windows (start/programs MS-DOS Prompt).
Then type netstat -arn and press the Enter key.
Your screen should display the following (without the dotted lines which I added for clarification).
Active Routes:

Network Address Netmask Gateway Address Interface Metric 1 1

Route Table

Active Connections

Proto Local Address Foreign Address State


If you see anything else, there might be a problem (more on that later). Now dial into your ISP, once you are connected; go back to the MS-DOS Prompt and run the same command as before netstat -arn, this time it will look similar to the following (without dotted lines).

Active Routes:

Network Address Netmask Gateway Address Interface Metric 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

Route Table

Active Connections

Proto Local Address Foreign Address State
UDP *:*


What you are seeing in the first section (Active Routes) under the heading of Network Address are some additional lines. The only ones that should be there are ones belonging to your ISP (more on that later). In the second section (Route Table) under Local Address you are seeing the IP address that your ISP assigned you (in this example

The numbers are divided into four dot notations, the first three should be the same for both sets, while in this case the .70 is the unique number assigned for THIS session. Next time you dial in that number will more than likely be different.

To make sure that the first three notation are as they should be, we will run one more command from the MS-DOS windows.
From the MS-DOS Prompt type tracert/ or .net or whatever it ends in. Following is an example of the output you should see.


Tracing route to / []over a maximum of 30 hops:
1 128 ms 2084 ms 102 ms []
2 115 ms 188 ms 117 ms []
3 108 ms 116 ms 119 ms []
Trace complete.


You will see that on lines with the 1 and 2 the first three notations of the address match with that we saw above, which is a good thing. If it does not, then some further investigation is needed.

If everything matches like above, you can almost breath easier. Another thing which you should check is programs launched during startup. To find these, Click start/programs/startup look at what shows up. You should be ableto recognize everything there, if not, once again more investigation is needed.


Now just because everything reported out like we expected (and demonstrated above) we still are not out of the woods. How is this so, you ask? Do you Netmeeting? Do you get on IRC (Internet Relay Chat)? Or any other program that makes use of the Internet. Have you every received an email with an attachment that ended in .exe? The list goes on and on, basically anything that you run could have become infected with a trojan. What this means, is the program appears to do what you expect, but also does just a little more. This little more could be blasting or one of the other sites that CNNline was talking about.

What can you do? Well some anti-virus software will detect some trojans. Another (tedious) this is to start each of these "extra" Internet programs one at a time and go through the last two steps above, looking at the routes and connection the program uses. However, the tricky part willbe figuring out where to tracert to in order to find out if the addresses you see in step 2 are "safe" or not. I should forewarn you, that running tracert after tracert, after tracert might be considered "improper" by your ISP. The steps outlined above may not work exactly as I have stated depending upon your ISP, but wuth a true ISP it should work. Finally, this advise comes with NO warrante and by following my "hints" you implicitly release me from ANY and ALL liability which you may incur.

Other options

Display protocol statistics and current TCP/IP network connections.
Netstat [-a] [-e] [-n] [-s] [-p proto] [-r] [intervals]

-a.. Display all connections and listening ports.
-e.. Display Ethernet statistics. This may be combined with the -s option.
-n.. Diplays address and port numbers in the numerical form.
-p proto..Shows connections for the protocol specified by proto; proto may be
TCP or UDP. If used with the -s option to display per-protocol statistics,
proto may be TCP, UDP, of IP.
-r.. Display the routing table.
-s.. Display per-protocol statistics. By default, statistics are shown for TCP
UDP and IP; the -p option may be used to specify a subset of the default
interval..Redisplay selected statistics, pausing intervals seconds between each
display. If omitted. netstat will print the current configuration information

Good luck!

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...

You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

Want to connect two computers with ADSLmodem C2110 on bsnl internet

You will need to network the 2 computers. To do this you will need network cards for both computers, wired or wireless depending on your preference and the appropriate router. You will need a cat5 or cat6 cable for each computer if you go the wired route. Hope this helps and please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

2 NICs connecting to 2 different networks

you need to speak to your network administrator, for printers you get network enabled printers ( your network admin will assign an IP address and sharenames for your printers,

your network admin can create shared volumes on the network and can sort out internet routing that complies with the corporate domain.

sorry no easy way to do this

I am disconneted from the internet i have already spoken to my internet provider and also my laptop company they are telling me that the promblem is that my router is not connecting

i would suggest unplugging the power from the router waiting 10 secs and reconnecting and seeing if this fixes your problem if not , do a cold reset hold down the reset button on the router usually for a few seconds and then go ahead and re-input all the settings that you need.

If this still isn't working i would assume that you try this router on another working network and see if it can connect if not , i would think that the router is losing its routing tables and is unable to route past your own LAN , the best solution for this is to invest in a new router.
