Slow/Sluggish Internet Connection

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have a motorola dsl modem 2210 and a linksys wrt160n(3.0) using at&t dsl. I have the latest dd-wrt firmware installed on the linksys wireless router. The modem is set in bridge mode with the linksys doing the pppoe. It is working fine most of the time, but occassionally it would disconnect or the internet is very slow. I had to power cycle both the modem and router to fix it. I am just wondering if it is my modem or is it my router that is causing this.

Yeah Spooony, that's exactly how I set up mine and it is where I got my instructions from in the first place. I do need a separate modem because the linksys wrt160n is only a router so a separate modem is needed. I am just wondering what is causing the disconnect or sluggish performance occasionally until I power cycle them. I am planning to upgrade either my router to a high performance router or to upgrade to the new netgear high performance dsl modem/router all in one device. Upgrading to the router allow me to use the dd-wrt. Upgrading to the all in one prevent me to use dd-wrt. So if it is the router problem then I would upgrade to the netgear router and all in one if it is the modem problem.

Did you set a dynamic IP on the router?

I got this installed. I used the startup wizard to map and is taking a long time. What is a faster way? limit the ip range?
