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

If resetting these don't help, I would call the ISP tech support, because it seems that either your router, or their modem is the problem (assuming that you don't own the modem).

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

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

This is what I have - just one box to connect to the phone line.

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.

Hi TG,

this is what I got:

Ping is so high.

After the rest, have you tried loading pages? How does it work?

Pages are uploading a bit faster but not dramatically. Did a new ping and I got this result before stopping it:

If your modem is like some equipment, simply turning if off doesn't discharge the capacitors, etc. If there is a battery, it would have to be removed to fully reset everything. Before doing that, see if there is a soft reset button hole as I described, it would be easier and faster.

If the resetting procedures don't normalize speeds, I would tend to think that the modem is defective. RMA/replace it.

Easier and faster, yes. But not as effective.

I found the problem but it doesn't help me much - maybe you guys can help me further.

I have a plug/socket system that delivers the internet to the 2nd floor in my apartment. The modem is in the first floor. There is a LAN Cable connect to this plug/socket system and delivers internet connect to a plug/socket set upstairs - a LAN cable runs from this to the computer. Upstairs I have super slow internet (2400ms Ping), downstairs I have 30ms Ping.

The only problem is that I can't move the computer downstairs because there is no space. Any suggestions on what I could do?

By the way thanks a million guys, without your help and insight I would have never gotten this far

Cheers

Jonny

If you got a wireless router, it doesn't need to be near or wired to the computer. You would connect it to to downstairs connection and install a WIFI receiver in the PC. If you did this, be sure to get a router with a NAT firewall and encryption for security.

Hi seekermeister,

unfortunately the wifi doens't work because of the thick walls in the apartment, which is why I went for the plug/socket system.

Your apartment must be in a castle for the walls to be so thick. I have no knowledge of it, but I vaguely recall the possiblty of connecting via the electrical system, but it is not considered a good way to do so...but then it might be better than you have got. Going back to your LAN connection, it is possible that the cable is good, but that one or both of the connectors in the wall are not up to par. At least that is something that you might inspect yourself. The only other thing that I can think of is fishing a new cable between floors, but that is not always easy to do.

This suggests that you installed the cable yourself. Did you use a high quality cable? Did it work properly when you first installed it?
