    maybe because you have that damn phone on top of your router lol.

  • shady08ish:

    ATT FUCK YOU

  • owen420:

    the 2wire modem limits your incoming sessions to 1024 (most standard routers have a low limit of 4096….)

    so rite there that kills torrenting…

    as far as this video goes…

    for one your using wireless 2 feet from it.. the 2wire has a screaming powerful tuner… the signal is more then likly way to strong… or bouncing around

    however the light you see is a failure to SYNC w/ the CABINET outside your home… meaning ur line is bad – probably due to not getting full sync

    AT&t DSL is not bad because of the connection it self. Change your modem. I am not even kidding. The 2wire modem that comes by default fucking SUCKS. Buy a Actiontec GT724WGR and it will speed up instantly.

  • Incpire:

    lol… IT IS AT&T!!! I HAVE IT CURRENTLY AND IT ALWAYS HAS PROBLEMS! I CAN’T SWITCH BECAUSE I HAVE NO OTHERS IN THE AREA FOR A LOWER COST! I’M SUPPOSED TO GET $15/Month bill w/ 1 yr. contract. But AT&T is trying to make me pay $40! WHAT A BUNCH OF FAGS! THEY ALWAYS MESS UP MY BILL!

    @yoman258 ha yea but unless yr doing online gaming or media/ work then go with a mac.

  • chemicalsweet13:

    @a1cshowoff sorry to ask this if you already answered but did you ever get this problem resolved?

  • philipkimbrell90:

    I have a 2wire but on a completely different network and no issues, you could have a Line problem which could cause these problems, also do you have filters installed on your phone lines? and Utorrent is available for mac aswell. Your line just might be corroded from age, and gives out on stressing stuff, like torrenting get someone to take a look at that.

    @903harman Its not that easy dude. Listen…I actually have experience working with burried cable and aerial as well. I’ve worked side by side with lineman and splicers alike. It is a monumental task to accomplish all of this in existing neighborhoods. Its time you got a job with the phone company where ever you live, so you can actually speak from experience.

  • 903harman:

    @Blackwido88 Lol Fuck verizon! who told them to dig up the street and yards like that!
    i told you it would be much cheaper. just a small portion of the street and a very small hole to the house.and make it easily accessible if yo have the right key.

  • Blackwido88:

    @903harman That sounds good on paper, but the reality is this…At&t lineman (27-30$ pr hour), contractors to dig the streets and rebury the cable (god knows what they charge), the city who wants a ton of money for the permits, splicing technicians ( 30-35$ pr hour), and then theres central office equipment (ASTRONOMICAL COST)…in the end, Google has to pray for a return. How many people will sign up for this? This dream of yours nearly bankrupt Verizon.

  • 903harman:

    @Blackwido88 true but cable still has a 200GB Cap that shit runs out really quick… its no point if you have fiber.and you have to think of the future,they can easily make it go trough the street and have make something to fix any problems or put it there easier..
    its not like they have to dig 10feet just to do it. they could make like a system like telephone poles but 10 inches underground.

  • Blackwido88:

    @903harman Well that would be awesome, and I’d be on that train if it were in my neighborhood…But you still need to have fiber going all the way to each and every household. With AT&T, there is only fiber to the premise in a few “brand new” condo’s as far as I know. Cable companies have a lot of fiber out there, but they still don’t have it to your doorstep either…

  • 903harman:

    @Blackwido88 google has been buying dark fiber for years, no one knew what it was for until they told us they wanted to change internet speeds in america.

  • Blackwido88:

    @903harman Well, that still means that Fiber has to exist for them to roll it out for “everyone” While I think its absolutely possible for Google to lease these dark fibers, they can’t do it for everybody. Not to mention, the central offices of all these phone companies would have to have high dollar servers/equipment to shell out the bandwidth that is expected from fiber. I worked for At&t, and I’ve been in the Co’s. It aint happenin anytime soon.

  • 903harman:

    @Blackwido88 actually its not going to work like that. google wants to let the internet providers get in on there dark fibers across america and google will set the price.

  • Blackwido88:

    @903harman Google to roll out Fios for everyone? muaahahaha… That would mean Google would have to buy At&t, Verizon, Comcast, Quest, Charter and a bunch of others so that the entire United States belonged to them…Then comes the unthinkably, insanely ludicrous amount of cash-ola to put fiber into each and every home in America…Oh yeah…then they’d have to pray to all the Gods that they get enough people to sign up…sounds like a pipe dream had a pipe dream

  • Blackwido88:

    @batemanjo9 The new modem is also 2wire…Uverse modem that is

  • batemanjo9:

    this is old, DSL is no longer available where I live and I can tell thats an old DSL modem by 2wire, now its all uverse and I download torrents all day with no problems

  • rzsigray1:

  • 903harman:

    @lilvoice32 at&t isnt the best internet.. if we had fios i would definetly switch but thats the only service thats not comcast.. i cant wait for the day google actually rolles out there fios for everyone to use that day i will cry for joy :)
