Hi TGSoldier,

I turned off the modem (didn't reset) and here are the values I got from the tracert. What do you think?

1 6 ms 3 ms 3 ms 192.168.1.1
2 26 ms 40 ms 27 ms rdsl-dsdf-de01.nw.mediaways.net [213.20.58.193]
3 25 ms 28 ms 28 ms xmwc-dsdf-de01-chan-18.nw.mediaways.net [195.71.
242.114]
4 28 ms 36 ms 30 ms ge7-0-0.ffm2nxg1.de.ip.tdc.net [80.81.192.16]
5 66 ms 72 ms 72 ms 85.19.122.230
6 402 ms 368 ms 664 ms 85.19.81.238
7 1182 ms 1790 ms 1454 ms front.opera.com [195.189.143.147]

Bit confused by what you did there. You make it sound like you did not put back on the modem but this can't be right because of your response from tracert.

Your pings seems to have dropped except for @ front.opera.com

open a blank cmd box and type

ping front.opera.com

What are your results?

Btw. By reset, I meant to unplug it and pull out he battery ( if you can ), for 30 seconds and put it back on.

Definite improvement, except hop 7, but that could be due to a bad server at Opera. Try a different destination and see what happens. As it stands, it appears that the modem is the problem, but I don't understand that, because I would think that a modem would be required for an internet connection or to run a tracert. Did you mean modem or router?

I have no idea if it applies to a DSL modem, but my cable modem has a reset feature accessible through a "pin hole" at the back with the other connections.

Hi Seekermeister,

I'm a little confused. I thought that the router and the modem are the same thing, i.e. the box that I connect to the phone line?

Cheers

That's a soft rest. A hard rest cuts all power to the device. It's a difference.

If you have one box where to connect phone line to, this is your DSL modem.

Like I said, I've never had a DSL connection, therefore I'm not familiar with the equipment involved. Maybe your router and modem are combined into one unit...I don't know....or you don't have a router at all.
