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...

I have new direct tv installation. now my dsl keeps dropping out. i unplug the direct tv box and everything is ok?


It sounds like they have given you the base DSL service with the minimal speed. If they did, it won't be enough to run two things at one time on the same dsl line. Call AT&T and check your speed or service that was installed and ask if it is enough to run to computers on the same line at once.
Also make sure that there is no filter on your dsl line that goes to your computer.

Here is another tip; the longer the phone line from the wall to your computer, the slower the dsl service. Longer cords slow down your internet.

Ethernet light flashing


Check your DSL Filters on your house phones or anything connected to the phone line EXCEPT the modem. The modem should not have a filter on it. If this doesnt help I would recommend getting your ISP out to test the line because sometimes the resisitors or hardware in the box goes bad or at the DSLAM.

Very slow starting up til I reach home page


The slow connection could be related to:

1) Check the connection speed first
2) PC slow due a hardware, software, or virus problem
3) Cable problem or range (if wireless)
4) Bad modem

DSL light flashing constantly


Hi,

I had the same problem to begin with. Here is what the Zoom helpdesk suggested:
"To force the dsl light to stop blinking, please follow these steps.

1) Open up your web browser and type 10.0.0.2 in the address bar. Type in the the username and password to log in to the modem.
username: admin
password: zoomadsl

2) When you get to the address bar, Click on advance setup.

3) Click on ADSL Configuration.

4) Change the standard to G.Dmt and change the activate line to Start.

5) Save changes and then write settings to flash.

Within a 1 or 2 minutes, the dsl light should go solid."

This worked for me. Good luck.

Need to hook up Belkin G wireless router to Motorola SB5120


Plug your cable line into your modem, make sure it's tight, but don't use a tool. Next plug the ethernet line from the modem to your PC ethernet port. Then plug in your power to the modem. Allow your modem to sync. Don't use the USB line at all. Do not even hook it up unless your computer doesn't have a working ethernet line. Don't run the disk either, it will only install the modem driver that is only used if you use USB.

If you have issues connecting after that, you may have to go into your ethernet adapter settings and make sure that it is using DHCP. DSL usually uses a different setting (PPP I think) and you will not be able to connect.

By the way, excellent choice in modems.

hi,there are a lot of possibilities y ur dsl light wont stop flashing red, 1.could be hardware failure,2.defective lead light for dsl,3.or line issue on the network...i strongly recommend that you contact your isp or att provider so that test would be done by their tech support,...basically you have checkd all inside wirings n as you have said you even tested the nid already...have you tried changing the dsl cable or phone cable? have you tried using another modem? were you using a filter for your dsl? you have to consider also other emi/rfi or electronic interference....but most probably you might try upgrading your modem n see if your gonna get a steady dsl light...the ethernet plugs has no effect on the dsl light...its just the cable connection or line issue or defective modem...i hope this will help, pls feel free to ask if you need further astnce...
