SOURCE: Random Disconnect: PCX 1100U

Toshiba 1100 modem are no longer compatible with any service providers anymore. The reason for this is Toshiba quit making cable modems and no longer supports them. Since they no longer support their modems, they don't write firmware to make them DOCSIS 2.0 compatible and since most service providers use 2.0, your DOCSIS 1.1 modem will not function correctly. Actually what is really happening is the 1100 modems cannot correctly decipher the 2.0 and are constantly changing their transmission power levels. You definitely need another modem, and if you are using Cox, ask about their refurbished ones for about 20 bucks.

SOURCE: modem disconnects from internet. must unplug to reconnect

that is over 26,000 hours of on time. Since most of the modem don't come with a cooling device. the max on time for any given modem is 15,000 to 20,000 hours.
yes, it is time to change a modem.

SOURCE: PCX2200 cable modem does not get IP address

First of all.. is it working at all right now? Does it route and let you onto the net?

You need to find the factory reset switch. Usually they are a tiny hole which you need a paper clip for. They are usually on the back. Insert the paper clip and touch the reset switch. You only need a light touch and you should feel a click.

Obviously the power has to be on while your doing this....

The IP address might be on a sticker on the bottom of the modem. The factory default address is likely to be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or something like that. Let me know how you get on...

SOURCE: Internet shuts when i download!

is your PC on DHCP or static?
perhaps try putting PC on static and see if this helps.
perhaps try reseting router to factory default and try again.
Looks like for some reason your PC is trying to pick new address every time you download which could be coincidence.

But try with static first and restore with factory default.

Let me know how it goes.

Flashing power light on Router is sign of hardware failure As mentioned, you have already reset the router
You can try to hard reset the router one more time
Follow this procedure
1. Press the reset button with some paper clip 2. Wait for 10 Secs 3. Turn of Power to the router (While Reset button is still pressed) 4. Wait for 10 secs 5. Power on router 6. Wait for 10 secs and then release the Reset button
While doing this make sure reset button is pressed continuously start from Step 1 - 6
Check if Power light still blinks
If No - you can setup router like before and it will work If yes - Buy a new router or get it replaced if under warranty

The issue I see is that the lights all are lighting up. I'd bet it is caused by some type of short or like a power outage or surge (remember surge protectors basically do nothing at all). If I were to guess, that's it. Other than that, I would flash the firmware back to original if it lets me.

Di-624 stopped working


Hi sailaway!
. Make sure the router is going from the modem, to the port marked WAN, on the 624. You can test the cable, by plugging it directly into you computer, from the modem, if you want to. Disconnect the power from your modem, your router, and turn off your computer Wait 1 min. Turn on the Router, wait three full min's. Power up the 624, and wait one min. Power up the PC. Reason for the long wait on the modem is that it has to get data from the internet, to give to the router. If that don't hwlp, try changing the cable from the PC to the router, to a different port. If all that don't work, try resetting the router by gentley pressing a straightened out paperclip into the reset hole in the back. Hold it for 30 sec. If that fail resetting it, try holding it in while you unplug the 624 and plug it back in. If it resets, go thru the first steps to set it up again. If all that fails, your 624 may be bad. Had that happen to me. The steps I listed brought it back to life for about 2 months, and it died completely. Good Luck!
