I keep loosing the DSL connection. I wanted to set up a network since I just got an additional computer, but I began to have the DSL disconnection problems. I have been connected directly to the modem without the router. I have reinstalled the modem from a disk and replaced DSK filters. I have not tried to configure the modem manually and do not know how. the connection will be on for a short time, then the DSL and/or Internet light starts blinking, and it goes out. After that the modem shows only the power and Ethernet lights. Could it be the modem itself? Is there a test that I can run? Please, help.


ISP AT&T Yahoo
Modem Motorola 2210-02-1002
No router
Wired DSL connection
Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP3
Internet Browser is IE

Call AT&T and have them check you connection from there end. I use Alltel; I have called them for a problem like yours. They checked the connection and reset my modem from there end. One problem; I got a lady in India. I was very hard to understand what ever kind of English they speak. Go news she fixed the connection and reset the modem all the way from India. P/S if you have old phone wires in you house it can cause problems. I was also loosing my connection and found it to be old (1960 ish) phone lines in my home. I replaced them with the best you can buy. With the new line and the help from the lady in India every thing works just great and faster.

I would log into the modem itself... in your web browser.. the ip for the modem should be 192.168.10.1 .... If I remember correctly that should be the default modem ip...

Thinking back. When LK2405 installed the modem disk it should of set it back to O.E. I think. I would still call my provider.
