DSL trouble shooting
Here are some of the more common trouble-shooting issues with DSL. Although it is unfortunate, the most common problem with DSL connections is the DSL modem itself either locking up or losing its connection.
The first thing to try, is simply restarting your DSL connection. In order to make sure things go smooth, we recommend you perform the following steps:
1. Shutdown your computer. In Windows XP 'shutdown' is located under the Start menu, then Shut Down. In MacOSX you click the Apple, then choose Shut down.
2. Reboot any switches/hubs/extra routers you have between the computer and the DSL modem. For rebooting (or power cycling) of switches, hubs, and routers you can unplug the AC power for about 10 seconds seconds and plug it back in.
3. Reboot the DSL modem. Do this buy unplugging the power supply. Do not push the reset button on your modem! On most DSL modems, the reset button will erase all your configuration information!
4. Wait a minute or two for the DSL modem to connect and get synchronized, then start your computer back up.
90% of the time, this will get you up and going again.
