I purchased Linksys WAG 120N modem router in bangalore and the Airtel technician installed same using the CD provided.The connection is constantly breaking.The airtel technician again visited and did a pinging test which showed the connection is breaking constantly.Later he went into checking the wag120n thru Aitrtel exchange and advised that The attainable rate is only 2844 as a value .actually this shud be more than 25000 as a valueHe removed the WAG 120N and installed my old beetel modem.The attainable rate was 23108He again installed his test beetel modem and the attainable rate was 22672.The airtel technician mentions that the WAG 120N is having the attainable value and I will have the constant internet disconnection problem.This vcan be resovled only by having a mdoem router which can give the attainable value of about 25000Can someone who has had similar problems get back to me on what to do ?????

I also purchased the same unit and is giving the same problem. I even did RMA once from Cisco however the problem is still there. I have seen other people also struggling with this modem. Cisco is not doing anything about it. For you, better buy some other modem instead. I am also planning to do the same.

I made a complaint with linksys cisco and recieved many calls frm delhi customer support.
They made me take screen shots of various configurations after logging into 198.162.1.1

finally a guy called Abhijeet informs ms the modem is okay.

No solutions offered / no warranty exchange / no refund.

Now its a wasted investment.

I want to send the modem to Linksys cisco and let them use it as a paper weight

Check the Mod mode selected in WAG120N.

Presume you noted previous Sync Speed:
Select adsl2+ SAVE page.
Recheck.
Feedback.

Google search.
checking for emulator for WAG120N
Checked
below Virtual circuit box VPI/VCI
try ADSL2 + or ADSl2+M
Check in Connection status sync speed again.( i cannot access in Emulator )

Ask for a replacement model not same wag120.
Letter from them to the shop where you purchased this.

My DSL modulation is set to Multimode & I get 4Mbps. But yes, this modem is a complete *WASTE OF MONEY*. I found out this, unfortunately, a little after I bought it. My modem failed & I had no time to do any research. So, I bought the first DSL router I came across, which was a big mistake.

Check your line stats.

I believe that Linksys does not give accurate stats, but it's worth a shot.

^ Thanks for the line stats link.

According to Airtel people its multimode, I have also tried G.dmt with similar disconnections. Will try ADSL2+ as well and see what happens.

EDIT: I tried ADSL2+ and the speed became slower than a dial-up connection. If the line stats are to be believed then Attenuation became 110dB with ADSL2+ mode.

I tried all the modulation modes available in WAG120N with Airtel over the last few days and even tried them for a while for disconnection issues. They all seem to be the same - similar speeds and similar disconnections.

It used to disconnect at random for a few days after I got this router, but since then, it's been stable.

Is there any noise on your line?
Have you tried raising a complaint with Airtel?
Try connecting a telephone to your line & listening - if you have not done that already. Could be faulty wiring somewhere.

And, just in case, start searching for a good DSL Router :wink:. I guess we've learned not to go for Linksys ever again.

In case you want to know, my stats are:
Multimode
DSL Mode: ADSL2+
DSL Upstream Rate: 753 kbps
DSL Downstream Rate: 5120 kbps

Down up
DSL Noise Margin : 60 dB 26 dB
DSL Attenuation: 60 dB 125 dB
DSL Transmit Power: -380 dBm -447 dBm

^^ I couldn't hear any noise on the land line, I even called Airtel a few times and they came and checked the line. As soon as I connect the Airtel Beetel modem I get stable connections with no drops.^ I don't have any electrical sockets to spare, that's why I wanted a modem + router.Anyone have any recommendations for a modem + router that works with Airtel?

Yeah, cyberwiz is right. Any DSL router *should* work.


Belkin Basic Modem Router (N150) (Black) - A colleague bought this for his new Airtel line, from Flipkart, around 2 weeks ago. He has no problems. It's now Rs. 2526. I do not know about the range, as his laptop is in the same room.

Look around on Flipkart - Routers Price List India: Network Components: Flipkart.com.
There are a couple of cheaper options too.

However, as we all know, cheaper doe not equal better. It's up to you buddy.

Yeah, I'll try to get rid of it (its still usable as a WiFi router) and buy a modem+router that seems to work with Airtel.
