judagrmn Posted August 25, 2008 Report Share Posted August 25, 2008 I ran the Glasnot tests using the sticky thread in this forum and it came back that my ISP (Qwest) is not throttling and infact passed all tests. Up until a week ago I was using a 2wire 2700HG-D until a power surge screwed it up. The Qwest rep said he would upgrade me free to a nicer 2wire 2701HG-D for free and informed me the 2700 was garbage and infact it was the 2nd one that had the same problem for me. The new modem looks nicer and I see increased response time but while downloading torrents, it seemed to reset itself every couple min. I googled the problem and found others with the same issue. Solutions from others were to lower my max global connections to 100 and then check stability. If stable keep adding 20 til it was still stable. Well even at 100 global it still reset my internet. Tried 20 less and it still reset. I have used BT for over 4 years now and have never had this problem. I am beginning to think that Qwest is using firmware in their modems to block BT traffic. My ports are opened and i get the Green light but losing connection every couple min is annoying. Can anyone recommend a better modem I can purchase without any kind of block?
