Question about Paradyne 6381 ADSL2+/ReachDSL Router (6381A3200)

Open Question

Paradyne 6381-A3-200 ADSL2+/R/Bridge/Router very slow

I have a 6381-A3-200 ADSL2+/R/Bridge/Router that is running very slow and not all the lights are flashing. The Power and Status lights are solid, the activity light has nothing, the LAN light is about half flashing and the USB also has nothing. Used to be fast up until a few weeks ago. Took to internet carrier and they said it was fine. Had my line checked on outside of house and it was fine as well. Only use my computer for research and surfing and rarely download anything. Have unplugged and rebooted. What do you think?

You don't -- the strength of the transmitter inside the unit is what limits the signal-strength out at 300 meters.

Instead, you need a "repeater" -- some people have built their own, using a Linksys router, and then reprogramming it with the free 'DD-WRT' software, and configuring the device as a repeater, rather than as an Access Point.

What happen when a adsl line work with a phone but not with a router


The phone line does two jobs. Voice phone which is what it was originally used for and ADSL modem which works at a high audio frequency.
Somewhere between the phone socket and the modem should be a filter splitter. One part goes to the phone and the other to the router. Make sure you have that.
The modem will have a power light and several additional lights. Assuming the power light is on we are interested in two of them; The ADSL light and the Internet light. When you switch the modem on you should first see the power light flash then go solid. Then the ADSL light will flash and then this should go solid. If this light does not come on then you have not plugged the phone wire in properly. If this light just keeps flashing slowly then the modem can't see an ADSL signal on the phone line. If you have a spare router you could try it and see if the ADSL light goes solid on that.
If the ADSL light is fine then the modem has locked onto the signal on the phone line, sync'ed. If not then this is the problem you must solve. Ask your ISP if service is set on your line.
The next light is the Internet light, this maybe a symbol like an i or a world. This light will begin flashing then go solid. It will flash with Internet traffic. This means you have Internet, as far as the modem is concerned. If this light does not stay on then your ADSL account name and password maybe wrong. You can correct this but that's a different question you need to ask.

My modems LAN light is blinking and I can't get Internet, I've tried unplugging it, but the problem still exists, please help


There will be 4 lights...

Power
Dsl
Internet
Ethernet

Power light indicates power supply is good...
Ethernet light indicates connection between modem and computer is good...
DSL light indicates connection between modem and telphone line is good... Also DSL light should be steady and it should not flash...
If it flashes then it says there is a lot of noise in telephone line...
Internet light says whether the internet status is connected or not...Internet light can flash depending upon the internet activity...

Power red light solid


I have same problem. I was able to manually assign IP of 192.168.1.2 and was able to connect to 192.168.1.1 (the d-link) but it keeps asking for Factory Supplied Firmware From ISP. I flash it with the firmware but then it crashes again.
