  1. Hi guys so i want to connect my xbox 360 to xbox live using my Safecom 2 port combo router. Anyways i used to have it connected up and everything worked fine, untill i reset the router by mistake... I have all the settings correct and all the connections are fine except for my dsl, its the one thing that doesnt work, I have the adsl plugged into the phone jack thing, seems to work fine for my modem but when i try it with my routers adsl cable, i cant connect, Seriously i tryed waiting for over an hour. So if anyone on here can give me some help, Which i need urgently, HALO 3 ON WEDNESDAY...Need i say more lol, that would be great! BTW i keep keep getting "Dsl is disconnected" when i go to connection status. If that helps...

    All help will be appreciated, Thanks

    So you have gone into the setup page (10.0.0.2) and entered ISP login info.

    You have saved settings and rebooted.

    On the diagnostic test page, where exactly does it fail ?

    I never had any luck with Safecom routers (they both pooped out in a year).

    And where does the diagnostic page say the problem is ?

    That is what the page is for.

    Re the wall jack : If your ADSL modem synchronizes,and connects Ok,

    then it probably isn`t that.

    Most Safecoms do have a test page somewhere.

    What is is your model number ?

    The Safecom router support and FAQs page is here HERE

    Just enter your model at the top right.
