ADSL light on router ?

pixma, Mar 24, 8:49am
ADSL light on router ? I have broadband with Ihug, I'm on their 2GB fair use plan and the ADSL light on the router keeps going off for about 1 minute then clicks back on. It will do this every 5 mins and its bloodly annoying. I'm running 4 computers though a hub if that helps ? Never had a problem before but these last few hours its been shit...

Have you tried rebooting the router?

.... I have rebooted the router, then the router and the computers and when that did not work I rebooted the router,computers and the hub. Still makes no diff. I ring Ihug and they say nothings wrong. WTF ???

You got filters on all the phone lines? Including sky digital/fax machines. Try performing an isolation test, so unplug all the phone devices in the house and leave the router directly plugged into the phone jack. You could also try another phone jack. Then ring Ihug back and tell them to log a fault with Telecom.

I'm with the ferrets, I think they have chewed at your cable. Stump up for a computer technician to come round and sort it out.

... There is an impact switch within the casing of those ADSL modems, they can only be reset with applied force, please take a 20lb sledgehammer and place modem on floor, swing sledgehammer above head and hit the modem precisely in the middle, this will trigger the impact-reset switch, don

SL... doing that with a Sledgehammer will put a smile on Intrades face LOL
