TROUBLESHOOTING
 

1.  If your modem does not have three solid green lights please read below:
** The 3 green lights mean that your modem is synced up with Verizon's central office.  If you plug in your modem and find the modem light is blinking that means your modem is trying to sync up with Verizon's central office.  If the modem light is on but the data light is blinking then that means your modem is having trouble transferring data and may result in decreased speeds or no connectivity at all.  Here are some ways to troubleshoot this problem: 
A.  Make sure the power is plugged in and the power light is on.
B.  Make sure that your filters are installed properly and in secure.  They should be connected to all analogue devices        other than the DSL modem.  Make sure the modem is connected securely with a regular telephone cable and make sure that its connected to the telephone jack of the number the dsl is getting installed on.
C.  If you find your DSL modem does not have three solid green lights then please give Verizon a call.  The number you can reach them at is 877-483-3350


2.  If you find every time you try to connect to the internet with either your web browser or email program, that it prompts you for a dial-up connection please follow these steps to disable it
**  Windows will usually prompt for a dial-up connection because it does not detect internet access through the DSL so it will revert to the dial-up method.

A.  Left click on the start button, select settings, and then select control panel.  Double click on the icon labeled "Internet Options"  Left click on the tab labeled "Connections" and make sure that "Never dial a connection" is selected.  If you find after doing this that you are still not working then please goto step 3.
A.  Left click on the start button, select settings, and then select control panel.  Double click on the icon labeled "Internet Options"  Left click on the tab labeled "Connections" and make sure that "Never dial a connection" is selected.  If you find after doing this that you are still not working then please goto step 3.


3.  If your modem does have three solid green lights but you can't connect please read below
A.  Make sure everything is properly connected together and in securely.  Be sure you are using the network cable supplied by us to plug in the modem to your computer.  It is a special kind of cable called a crossover cable.  If you are using a hub please disconnect it and plug the modem directly into a computer as this will eliminate the possibility of a "bad" hub.  Most modern day network cards have an LED (known as the link light) on them which indicate whether or not it is connected to the modem or not.  To test this unplug the modem from the computer and you should notice a LED to start blinking or go off.  If you plug the modem back in to your network card and the LED becomes solid then that means you have properly connected your modem and network card.
B.  Double check all of your TCP/IP settings for the network card.  Make sure you have entered in everything exactly as it was on the instructions as any typo will prevent the DSL from working.
**  The troubleshooting from here on are only meant for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/ME/XP and Linux users.  If you have a Mac and you know you have the ping tool then you will be able to use the instructions below.  Otherwise, please give us a call so we can further troubleshoot this.
A. Left click on the "Start" button in the lower left corner and select "Run".  
B. Type in the word "command" without the quotes
**  Linux users will have to open a console or terminal but the rest of the steps are the same for everyone
C. You are now presented with a prompt.  Type in the command ping ip_address where you put your ip address assigned to you in place of ip_address.  An example is "ping 192.168.0.57."  If you get four replies then that means you have entered in your ip address correctly and you may proceed to part D.  If you received "Request timed out" then make sure you have entered your i.p. address in correctly.  Another thing to make sure of is that you are using client for microsoft networks as your logon type.  For Windows 95/98 users, check this by clicking on the "Start" button, goto "Settings", goto "Control Panel".  Double click on the "Network" icon and for the "Primary Network Logon" make sure "Client for Microsoft Networks" is selected.
D.  Now we will ping your gateway.  To ping your gateway type ping ip_address_of_gateway where ip_address_of_gateway is your gateway .. An example is "ping 192.168.0.1."  Your gateway will always has 1 as the last number.  If you get four replies then that means you can talk to our router and you can proceed to part E.  If you do not get four replies then type this command in ping -t ip_address_of_gateway and please give us a call.
E.  We will now ping a site outside of our dsl network to determine that you can access the rest of the internet.  Type in the command "ping 216.86.201.1".  If you get four replies then that means you can proceed to part F.  If you get request timed out please make sure that your subnet mask and gateway are entered in correctly.  If you are still having a problem connecting then please give us a call.
F.  Now we will determine if DNS is working.  Type in the command ping www.yahoo.com.  If you get four replies then that means your dns is working but if you find that you cannot browse the internet or anything else then please give us a call.  If you get bad host name, request timed out or the command just sits there then please double check the dns servers you have in your TCP/IP settings.  If you know you have the correct ones then you might try switching them around.  Basically, remove the current ones you have in there and put them in reverse order so the primary dns listed above is now the secondary and the secondary is now the primary.  You will have to restart your computer with all OS's except Linux for the changes to take effect.  If you find that you are still not working then please give us a call.
