    My ISP has checked from their end to mine and find no problems or think they make a little click and it solves the problem. They are not much help!

  • Ohorses Aug 14, 2008

    Please explain what you are speaking of and how to go about doing it.

  • Ohorses Aug 14, 2008

    I am not familiar with what you are suggesting, how do I go about doing that? I did have DSL 6.0 and it was suggested by ISP that I go down to the next level. Tried that....

  • Ohorses Aug 14, 2008

    Hope I can answer all of your questions.... I have a Dell (Windows XP), desk top, wired, and the modem is from At&T, 2Wire Gateway and the only number I saw that looks like what you asked for is: 2701HG-8. If this is in-correct, please let me know and I'll try again.
    Thank you so much.

    Lee,



    What other internet providers? As I said, I am not on cable.

  • Ohorses Aug 14, 2008

    Regarding last suggestion from Lee, how will changing providers affect my web page that uses this providers web address for email?

  • Ohorses Aug 14, 2008

    Thanks for everyone's advice. I'll try some of your suggestions and see what happens! Thanks.

Unfortunately even if it was a problem on your providers end they will not admit to it. No matter if it be a cable provider, satellite provider or any other company for that matter they will never take responsibility unless you have facts in there face. I would try a different service provider and see if you still have the problem. Let me know if you need any further assistance before rejecting my help.
Thanks,
lee

With your problem its related to your internet service provider that can be a problem from their end which is causing your constant disconnection, and your ISP should do some checking on your line..

Hope that helps.....

    Because you said you already replace the modem and you still have the same problem so by that you can already ask your ISP why you still have the problem if everything is working from them..

  • Mark Gil
    Mark Gil Aug 14, 2008

    Internet provider cable or DSL or even fiber optic have this kind of problem but they are not admitting it , but if the problem is not with them after replacing the modem/router this problem should already be fix but you see even with the new modem still have the problem..

The network appliance you're asking about is a modem with a wireless router built in. Basically, it's an all-in-one device. It will replace your already existing modem. It is a wise upgrade for any AT&T DSL connection.

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.

Problem getting to internet through 2wire 2701hg-b router

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........
