  1. So started reading a bit about the DOCSIS 3.0 standard, and thinking maybe this has something to do with it. Appears that that blue LINK light also indicates whether the connection is bonding channels. Is there such a thing as having a DOCSIS 3 compatible router, or is this all taken care of by the modem? Does the router have to be gigabit? I logged into the modem, and it looks like its doing two channels. (channel ID 36 and 37 with a SNR of 36db each ) Is this showing that it is indeed doing channel bonding? What should I be looking for? Looks like each channel should be able to do 38mbps. Sorry for all the questions, but I have found it really difficult to find any info regarding my problem. This is the best I got... http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r20428169-Lets-keep-all-DOCSIS-30-Discussion-in-this-thread-please
  2. Thanks for the reply. So I didn't have any throttling with QoS setup, and I only had the static ip's setup on the machines for port forwarding. I tried resetting everything to default and enabling UPnp but still no marked change. I've also disconnected all of my roommates computers to be sure bandwidth isn't being sucked up by downloading or anything when i'm doing the download test. Also noticed that the link LED on my modem ( SB6120 ) is only blue when connected directly to my computer. It flashes orange when when connected to the router. The pamphlet that came from comcast says the blue light is for a Gigabit connection. I know my NIC is gigabit, but does the router have to be? I assumed it would be able to handle up to around 100mbps. ( it does with my LAN traffic ) Anyone got any more suggestions, or places to look for information? ____Here's my speeds___ :::..

  3. make sure the onboard one is disabled in bios did you do any overclocking or anything?
  4. So no one has any info? Am I asking the wrong questions? I noticed the latest firmware is dated from 2004... Is it time for a new router? I get about 4mbps down consistently on all computers, while my buddy is getting 8mbps consistently over the wireless. ( WRT54G which is hooked up thru the wired router ) What am I overlooking?
  5. So heres what I have going on. Just upgraded to comcasts 50/10 service, and using my router i'm only getting download speeds of something like 3-5mbps. ( which is worse than what I was getting with my old 8mbps service! ) When I bypass my router ( Linkys BEFSR81 ) I am able to get around advertised speeds. ( around 40ish mbps down ). I'm wondering whats up with the router to drop speeds so dramatically? I've tried updating the firmware and messing with the router settings but nothings really working. I've got everyone on the network setup with static ips and turned of all the firewalls and other crap. Is there some kind of new standard or something that i'm not aware of and i need to research into getting a new router? Any suggestions on router settings? thanks
  6. hah thanks alot fallowearth, your guide helped me out alot. powercylcing cured my problem, i didn't think it was such and easy fix. thanks alot. now i just have to switch it over to static ip's..... plus one of my computers doesn't want to aquire a network address. oh well, thanks for the help!
  7. ok so i tried setting up the computers with DHCP, and set the router up with DHCP and i still can't connect to the internet. I have the router set up as defualt gateway ( and subnet mask ( and set up to abtain automaticly WAN information. DHCP is enabled with starting at ( and with 10 clients. I've tried settting everything up then reseting computer and power cycling modem. Still can only get LAN to work, but can't get it to connect to internet. The computer connected to the router connects to internet when it connects directly to the modem and has DHCP enabled. i'm wonder why everything is set to DHCP and yet i still can't get it to work.....
  8. Hello Everyone! Heres the problem i'm having, i am in the middle of setting up a home network using a router and Static IP addresses. My question is, when setting up my Linksys router, it asks for my WAN address. Heres where i'm a little confused, is this the public address that my ISP gives me? When i have my computer hooked up directly to the modem (with DHCP enabled) and go to a site like whatsmyip.com it gives me 24.nnn.n6.1 while ipconfig /all gives my ip address as 24.nnn.n6.7.......is the .1 my public ip while the .7 is the private ip that DHCP is assigning me? when i have everything set up staticly, i am able to ping the router, another computer on the network, but i can't ping the DNS.....so what i figure is that everything in the network is cool until i get past the router......i hope this post makes sense to somebody, as i'm somewhat new to this. Thanks for any help you might be able to offer. oh yeah, im running winxp, serv pack 2 linksys BEFSR41ver2 etherfast router (with latest firmware) motoral surfboard sb5100 modem wavecable Edit: Hid part of IP address for privacy reasons.
