  1. hi ppl, lke i said before i sorted out the modem, but
    when i'm online sometimes it will just disconnect from the internet.
    i tryed to troubleshoot the problem using the router,
    this was what it said:

    Test the connection to your local network
    Test your Ethernet Connection: PASS

    Test the connection to your ADSL service provider
    Test ADSL Synchronization: PASS
    Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: PASS
    Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: PASS
    Test ATM OAM F4 segment ping: FAIL
    Test ATM OAM F4 end-to-end ping: FAIL

    Test the connection to your Internet service provider
    Test PPP server connection: PASS
    Test authentication with ISP: PASS
    Test the assigned IP address: PASS
    Ping default gateway: PASS
    Ping primary Domain Name Server: PASS

    does the failed thing make a difference?
    and what is the difference between the F4 and F5 thingy?
