It is likely that the site itself or the route to the site may be having problems. Typically, in absence of anti porn software or malware, the issue is rarely with you.

If you were to trace the signal from your modem, through all of the relays involved, to arrive at the desired site location, usually 15 to 35 jumps are involved, each with potential issues...and a person in another part of town CAN get to the desired site because of how the traffic is routed.

This routing is the essence of what makes the web faster, dynamic routing...... The way it works is the routing server is constantly checking for the best route to sites, and creates a routing table. Sometimes these tables corrupt, and it is tricky to find....

Too much detail, i know, but Google tracert and you can run the command.... (open the run window, which brings you to a dos prompt. Type tracert fixya.com (REPLACE Fixya.com with the site you are trying to get to....)

So run the command and see where the stopping point is and you have your issue. There are a lot of servers in California and that area, and hey, stuff breaks down....

So, I really, really doubt the modem has much to do with your issue, so my bet is it was just coinsidence that it worked, not modem.

I had an issue with routing and it took 2 weeks to get all of the links involved to look at the issue....It was the tracert data that they could not refute....so they eventually found the issue....



Here is what it takes for my machine to connect with Fixya.com:

The modem & internet lights on router are flashing orange. All other lights are solid blue. The Verizon DSL modem indicates it is working properly. Have re-set once. What do I do now?


Its your network that's causing connection problem!

1. Try to connect to your network after half an hour!

2. If the server is still busy, don't surf during peak hours! (surf @ night)

3. Change your ISP! (last solution)

This are some steps on how to setup your modem/router
New DSL Modem Available
Embarq is now shipping an updated version of the DSL Modem called the "660". It is smaller than the older model (645) and is much easier to setup.
A few years ago, Sprint/Embarq changed the way their servers communicate with the DSL modems. The new method is called DHCP, which is how the 660 modem works. The older 645 Modem used "PPPoE". So it's best to have the new 660 DSL modem.
The older 645 modem also had the same default IP address as the Linksys Router (192.168.1.1) - so you had to change one of the addresses to make them work together.
The new 660 DSL modem uses 192.168.2.1 as the default IP address. This does not conflict with the default IP address of the Linksys Router (192.168.1.1). Note that if you had changed the Linksys Router IP address to 192.168.2.1, then you will first need to reset it back to the default address 192.168.1.1.
If you call Embarq and request the new 660 DSL modem they will sent it to you at no cost. When you install the 660 DSL modem, you need to be sure that you power down the old 645 modem amd leave it off at least 1 hour before you plug in the 660 DSL modem. The Embarq server needs to "forget" the old 645 modem. After an hour, all you should have to do is plug in the new 660 modem and everything should start up properly.
Call Embarq Tech Support 1-877-646-3282 if you have problems setting up the modem. If the Internet Lights does not come on after a few moments - then call Embarq Tech Support.
