  1. Hello, can anyone advise me. I have just followed the simple instillation steps and connected my new wireless router that I bought from Dell. I followed the on screen instructions BUT when I try to connect to the internet an error message states: Modem busy or not connected properly. DELL do not provide help at weekends, if anyone can advise I would be eternally grateful. Thanks
  2. agree... happy now .... when cox is working ,,its nice,,,though i wish we had the speed of the asian countrys,,,50mg/s... cox had up to 12mb/s... but still a far ways off..not sure why the government has not looked into this......why must we be a third world in internet access.??
  3. well, its finally running great, after 3 techs.... they did some tweaking, but i actually think cox was working on something in the area :::..

  4. well,,it got worse the next day....just don,t get it ..on and off as for working properly and intermitent connections so i made another appointment,,,the Cox tech was out today, supervisor, tuesday.. someone wired something wrong outside, then he said i did not need a amplifier inside the apartment to my modem,,he said there was such thing as over-amplifying. then he checked the signal/noise on my modem..low. i think it was 28... so he did some things, ,,the modem i have is new bought from wallmart last month , motorola 5101,, and so i got my old one out, and it was acceptable noise/ signal... he checked my speed after all this...it was very slow and he rescheduled an appointment for friday... they should come right out the next day i was thinking.. anyhow,, after he left, my tv and internet went dead twice momentarly and cam on again.. ... now my interent works great....why was it slow when he was here, and fast an hour later...sometimes i think Cox is making repairs...and not telling the customer.
  5. well..out of no-where,,,my internet runs perfectly now... what gets me about cox...is i think they are woking on things,, but just won,t tell the customer.. they send techs out,,and actually that is not the problem at my place...its an outside issue..
  6. well, i started having connection problems again... and i bypassed my netgear wpn 824 router,,and now everything is running great... it looks like my router was part of the problem .... this is a new router,,but i have read many threads of lost connections,,,and it looks like mine is doing it... possibly after running for a few hours,,,, then things begin to happen...
  7. i had cox cable out today again , and he stated my modem readings were not good..he also installed a splitter that amplified the signal ...here is my modem power readyings Frequency 573000000 Hz Signal To Noise Ratio 33.9 dB Power Level 4.8 dBmV The Downstream Power Level reading is a snapshot taken at the time this page was requested. Please Reload/Refresh this Page for a new reading the downstream power level was 13 when cox arrived,,, and not its 4.8... he said it was suppose to be under 10....what is the power level reading supose to be at?????
  8. yes, lots better now....cox said a lot of calls were coming from my apartment complex on the problem,,there are about 200 units in my complex...stated they replaced something..not sure what.....thanks all for the help.
  9. yes,,huge improvement.....one question- how do i tell if a packet is timinng out...and exactly what does this mean... oh,,,another question if you don,t mind..how does one tell if a cable modem is bad???
