    Hello.

    A few days ago, I took my Dell Dimension E310 to Circuit City and Best Buy in an attempt to buy a new graphics card. After finding out my comp was too out-of-date, I took it back home and plugged everything back in.

    After plugging in my Westell Model 2200 DSL, and turning it back on, I was shocked at how slow the internet was. Videos on youtube were taking forever to fully load, and web pages were slow to load.

    It's been a few days, and the problem has not resolved itself, so I came here.

    There are three lights on the DSL; Power, DSL, and Ethernet. I find that whenever I watch a video (that loads) or go onto a webpage, the Ethernet light flashes ballistically.

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    -Jeff

    When attempting those steps, my internet stopped working all together.

    You need to call the company that makes the modem and ask for a tech. It sounds more like a modem problem than computer. They can test the equipment from their base. Jazz

    Contact your Internet Service Provider, not the modem manufacturer.
