Yup, only buy Streamyx certified modem. I bought Aztech 605E
Oh yeah, I forgot to add that when they ask me about the modem / router used, I always tell them I have 3 modems and 2 routers. Hahaha.. Otherwise, they will "advise" me to buy a new modem / router.
I don't have good experience with Aztech ... the last modem I have with it, the adapter fried and broken into two pieces. .. I think the modem went hair wired tooo .. seesh ..
My first Aztech ADSL was an excellent modem. FAR FAR better than anything sold today. Too bad I did a stupid mistake flashing the firmware...
This new Aztech 605E is like a cheap toy. Very very poor built quality. But it works better than my half kaputed bundled ZTE modem. I'm happy with it so far.
the early generation Aztech was nice IIRC the 305 or something model.
after that, it's D-Link all the way for me.
I hated Dlink so much I promised myself not to get another Dlink, especially routers.
been using aztech modem all the while. the early ones have better build quality. but mine coudlnt sync with server anymore.
used the 600EU (kaput) & 600E (kaput) & currently 605E
ah, routers I avoid them. I use Linksys routers.
I totally agree!
Using Linksys routers too. Excellent products.
using motorola cable modem & buffalo router~ hope to get a BT n-router next time~
I'm not sure if it pertains to your problem... but I just "solved" a problem with a notebook's WiFi card having trouble getting a proper IP.
The notebook connects easily to the WiFi router but it just won't get a proper IP. I forced it to use a fixed IP and that worked BUT nothing gets through. Even pings to the router times out.
So I tried turning off WEP authentication and it worked!! Unfortunately, turning off security is not an option so I tried something else - changing the password.
Okay, it's really funny and sounds a bit stupid, but that damn trick really worked!!! After I changed the password and rebooted the router, the notebook had no problem connecting to the router and grabbing a proper IP!!!!!
Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on again?
(sorry... that was a line from the BBC show "IT Crowd" which I love)
On a serious note, are you running any kind of firewall on the XPS?
