Q: Solved: Modem (seems) to go into standby during peak hours. Please help!

Hey guys, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to look at this post. Anyway, I'll get right to the chase, just recently I have purchased the Motorola SB5120 modem and the Linksys WRT546 router, the reason being is because my old modem was extremely out-dated and we needed an easier way to connect my two other computers. All has been working fine until this past week or so, and it seems that my modem just likes to go into a standby state, by itself, from 11 a.m. until 8-9 p.m. central. This will occur regularly about every 5 minutes to an hour for the entire day, the "standby" mode will last for only about 10 seconds, usually just long enough to kick me off from whatever I may be doing at the time. The modem says its working fine though, and even the Cox guy said it was running at optimal performance. At first I believed it to be just some minor difficulties with the network I setup for my family, but that wasn't the case. I've tried resetting everything and just starting from scratch but nothing works. We called the Cox Support team, again, and again, I was told to reset everything. If anyone has any solutions, please let me know. Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I like playing Team Fortress 2 but I only get decent latency (~50 ms) outside peak hours (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.), at these hours my latency goes up to 400 ms. I'm wondering if is this is a problem inherent to dsl infrastructure or is it that my isp is worse than average. In Mexico City there are only about 3 internet service providers, Prodigy Infinitum from the country's telecomunications giant(and a monopoly) Telmex is the one I use.
Of course most of their clients use the internet for sending emails and web browsing so I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't care for providing a decent service for gamers.
How does everyone's isp perform for gaming?
 

A:High latency at peak hours

Most ISP's have you on a system with a lot of other users in your neighborhood. What you report is typical. You provider will provide you high speed and bandwidth at an increased price, and then this problem will go away.
We have performed a lot of work in Mexico City and certainly found a great number of providers... not just three... have you talked to repair services in your part of the city.
I do know that the costs are extremely high for service and support, compared to the USofA

So I moved in December to a very small town. I got Cass Communications cable internet 15mb dl for $100 a month which is a terrible price for the speed but it's the best I got here. It was very very consistent internet, always right around 15-17 speeds with no packet loss and was great for gaming/streaming. Well now they have doubled the speeds to 30mb dl and it's great during the day when no ones using it but come 8 pm central it is absolute garbage. Without fail at night it slows to a crawl.

I don't know what to do at this point. I have contacted their tech guy and told him and he said their were some noise issues or something and that it should be better but it's not. From 8 till 12 am it's useless, streams buffer and gaming is impossible since your ping is about triple what you're used to and fluctuates so much you can't even tell what's happening in multiplayer. I have contacted him again asking him what we can do to fix this and he said "Your modem is on probation so we can look at it" or something and now he's ignoring anymore emails i've sent. The only other option I have is a 6mb DSL service that's pure crap too. Is their anything I can do?
 

A:Internet terrible during peak hours since upgrade!

I don't understand what "modem is on probation" means. If it is your modem then investigate to see if it is a problem. Is it DOCSIS 1, 2 or 3? I'm not sure what the actual maximum downloads for those specs are (you can look them up on the web), but an old (five years or more) or DOCSIS 1 modem may well be the issue. If it is the ISP's modem then you need to get them to investigate/solve any modem issue.

Otherwise there is nothing you can do except keep pestering your ISP. Speaking from the experience of having ISP issues for months and months (now working fine for three months) use various channels. In addition to calling there may be (sometimes difficult to find) ways to chat or email. If you don't get anywhere with a given chat session try again the next day because the rep will almost guaranteed be somebody different.

I am currently with Virgin Broadband in the UK which supply up to 50Mbps. During non-peak I get 50 Mbps through the ethernet and about 20Mbps on my laptop through a wireless connection to my router which is fine...

The problem is that during peak times, I get a speed of less than 7/8Mbps through my wireless connection which I feel is unfair considering I am paying for up to 50Mbps. (A connection via ethernet only drops by 4-5 Mbps to 45Mbps).

Should this be happening? I don't understand how the increase in demand during peak times should affect my ethernet and wireless connection differently. If anyone has a solution I would be very grateful.
 

A:Wireless broadband v slow during peak hours; ethernet unaffected

Assuming that you run an encrypted wireless connection and changed the login and password for your router, just check how many wireless networks you can see in your connection manager during the peak hours vs normal hours. You may be just suffering from interference from the neighboring networks. In non-peak hours all of those routers around you are just broadcasting their network names, thus taking little bandwidth. In peak hour the information traffic between the routers and computers connected to them picks up and creates interference.

If you see a lot of networks around, get some free software, such as Net Stumbler, that would allow you to see what channels those networks operate on and select an unoccupied (or less occupied) channel in your router.

I have a custom built computer. Below are specs

AMD Duron XP 3200+ (Athlon XP 2.2GHz)
ASRock K7s41 Motherboard
512mb Ram
DVD Dual Layer ReWriter

I later added a CD-RW and a PEAK ATI Radeon 9800SE 128MB Graphic Card.

The card worked fine on the first day. Later on i notice that the monitor would switch of and i would have no control of the computer. This happened to me many times as i was playing DOOM3. A couple of the times it brought up a message saying something like this:

Recently the idea of purchasing some more RAM crossed my mind considering how cheap it can be now. After doing some searchin on google, i found mixed feelings towards whether or not you should have more than 1GB of RAM. I also started reading about the Windows Page file. I am running the following system: 3.2GHz P4 with 1GB of RAM. I download alot of torrent files but i am not a hardcore gamer. My question is why does it seem like windows is not using my ram to its full potential. The Peak always shows about 667236, and while i am currently downloading a torrent the page file is at 635MB. Should the page file not only be in use when you need to store more memory than u have RAM? What settings/modifications should I make for optimal performance, and should I get more RAM? I was thinking adding another 512.

At one point i disabled the Page File but Photoshop got mad. Is there anything wrong with disabling the PF, and should u when u have a certain amount of RAM?

Any guidance helpful.
 

A:Solved: Ram+peak+page File

Windows XP always uses the page file for low priority data regardless of how much physical memory is free. If you still have a lot of physical memory free while you are using as much of it as you ever would, you do not need to upgrade your memory. 1GB of memory is usually more than enough for any normal task. And no, it is not a good idea to disable the page file, as you found out.

Hello, ever since I got a new router (kept the same modem) every few hours both would shut off for a few hours.

The names of the router and modem are this..

Router: Netgear (doesn't say anything else)
Modem: Motorola SB5100 SURFBoard Cable Modem

By "shutting off" it doesn't let me connect to the internet, nor any other programs that need the internet to connect. I can connect to Windows Media Player, and stuff like that. When the modem and router are on, the Modem signs are...

Power: Green Online: Green
Recieve: Green PC Activity: Flashes Orange
Send: Green Standby: Black

When it's off...

Power: green Online: Black (not on, basically)
Recieve: green PC activity: Flashes Orange
Send: blinks green ever 3 seconds Standby: Black

The router also gets slow when the modem turns off also.

And lastly, i have a lot of lag when i scroll up and down or move a window, sort of like frame by frame.

Hey guys,

I have an issue with my current network where every couple of hours I will lose my connectivity and it will not come back unless I do a power cycle on my router/modem. I originally thought the issue was with my router, however I'm beginning to think it's an issue involving the modem. I've tried two different routers and this happens on both. My main router is a D-Link WBR-1310 (crap I know but it was free) and has lasted for years, and my modem is a Toshiba PCX2500 from Time Warner Cable. The second router I used to test this was an older Linksys BEFW11S4. I was going to replace my router, but when I saw that both of them reset after a few hours (today was only 5, last night it was connected for over 8 hours as I slept). I ran an IPCONFIG /ALL when I was connected with internet and when I was connected without and the only three changes were:
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.100(Preferred)
Changed to:
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.122.205(Preferred)
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
Changed to :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

and also

DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

I have a problem that is driving me batty. If anybody can offer any solution I would be most appreciative.
My system - XP Home Version Win32, SP2 with all the updates. I have a Motorola modem. The computer is a solitary computer, not networked with any other computer. I don't use any kind of a router, modem connects directly to computer. I have a NVIDIA nForce Network Controller. Also, I have ran "sfc /scannow".

When I boot up, if I don't have the modem on before boot up, I get a "Generic Host Process For Win32 Services Has Encountered A problem And Needs To Close" error message within 20-30 seconds after boot up. If I have my modem on before boot up, everything is ok. Regardless of whether or not I have my modem on, my Network Connections always shows the Local Area Connection status as "Connected, Firewalled"
But here is where the real puzzler happens. If I boot up with the modem on first, as stated, everything is ok. But after exactly 6 hours ( to the minute ) after boot up, the "Generic Host Process" error pops up. When this happens, it takes down one of my svchost.exe ( There are usually 6 or 7 running that show up in the tasklist ). The one that goes down is the biggest one that has things like : Windows Audio, DHCP Client, Network Location Awareness, Remote Access Connection Manager, Windows Firewall, Etc. , in it.

A:Modem Blocks Standby & Hibernate Modes

If you are connected with the modem I don't know if you can standby/hibernate; and I don't have a modem in this machine so can't check it.

Try going to Device Manager and the Modem's Properties. Somewhere, maybe a Power Management tab or maybe Advanced tab, see if there are options for allowing the modem to be put to sleep for standby.

Hey everyone,

I have been having trouble with my network. I recently, (2 days ago), upgraded my cable high speed internet service from 2mbps down and .2 mbps up to 15 mbps down and 2 mbps up. However, even during non peak hours, pretty much all the time, the best download speed I can get is 4-5mbps. My upload speed stays where it should, at 2mbps. It is really only my download speed I am concerned about, because this happens every day all day. When I first upgraded the service, I got 12-13 mbps download speed, so something must have happened between then and now where I cant receive that anymore. My modem is a doscis 2, not 3, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. It is an Arris TM602G/15 model.But as I said, I have received close to the full download speeds before, but not anymore.

Any help? Thanks!

A:Not getting speeds I am paying for... Even during NON-peak

Try contacted the service provider again ? They should have technicians to be able to check it for you. Could also be a line problem, did you add anymore lines to your cable lines inside ?

How are you testing it, where ? Did you change any other settings on PC. Windows does all optimizations for you.

Try resetting the modem, unplug it for 15 seconds, then plug back in. Or unplug and reboot PC. Usually a way to reset the modem back to factory state, need to check your service providers website for your model modem to be able to access it's settings. Usually you type in an address in your browser to access it.

Hi guys,

I've recently bought a new computer, and it's an issue I've had with another Windows 7 desktop that I purchased before. Unfortunately, when I fixed it originally, I don't exactly remember how because it was after hours of frustrating trial and error.
Anyways, the issue is that while all volume levels are set for peak output, the green/grey volume bar is only going up about halfway. I have been told to check all settings, check my speakers and reinstall my audio driver; however, none of them have fixed the problem. I have plugged my speakers directly into my iPod and they work fine, and I've tried different music-playing software, and the same issue persists.

If anybody has any ideas on how to fix this problem, it was be appreciated.

The link below is a screenshot...

Hello, I have a Dell Desktop with Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3.

This started about 2 months ago, my set time Automatic Standby was working fine, then it stopped working - computer will go into standby mode if I manually tell it to. Was set to 45 minutes, but then that stopped working, so I tried out a few other times - a few but not every time setting. The only one that seemed to work was 20 minutes but now that has stopped working.

I've read that it may be due to something running in the background, there's a long list of things and processes in the task manager but I'm not savvy enough to identify them or recognize what if any may be the cause. I may have installed a new program around that time, and I did also read a comment from a person with a similar issue who mentions that they installed the latest update for what Microsoft uses against malware and viruses - sorry not sure what it's called. Anyway I kind of remember accepting the update a little before I noticed the standby issue.

I did think about trying System Restore and going back to an earlier date, but it won't let me go beyond January 2011 which it has never done before, don't use it often but in the past it's let me go back to previous months.

I've scanned with Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Avast, they did not detect anything. Panda ActiveScan did detect something, so I took it over to VirusTotal and 5 out of 43 Antivirus programs are detecting it as som... Read more

A:Automatic StandBy no longer working - Manual Standby does work

My understanding is that when you set a time to stand by or hibernate, if there is any running process on the system that cause the CPU to use 10% even for a split second (like you would observe in Task Manager), the timer gets reset back to zero.

The system has to be "idle" and that also means no keyboard, mouse, email reading, surfing, etc. Idle means idle.

Knowing that, if you have something running in the background like an automatic scan, updates, something that is running that periodically checks for something to do, updates, etc. that could use 10% of the CPU - even for a split second, that will reset your timer.

In my notes, I have this reminder to myself from past experience of things that can interfere with a timed stand by or hibernate:

Does your system have installed Windows Search, Skype, iTunes, MagicJack, RSS feeds, any kind of Instant Messenger, any kind of malware scanners doing scans or doing automatic updates like MSE, AVG, Norton, McAfee, Bit Defender? Did a cat walk on your keyboard?

To test, set your options so some small amount of time - maybe 5 minutes and see if the system works properly every time. Be sure the mecahnism itself is not flawed. If it does work properly every time with a short timer, and you set it back to 45 minutes and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't work you will have to figure out what is going on that resets the timer.

I think I would set it to 45 minutes, note the time of day and find something... Read more

Hi,

Does anyone know how to contact PEAK? I've tried googling them to no avail and they're not listed on the ATI site either.

I bought the card 2nd hand and when it boots into windows it has artifacts in the shape of pale vertical lines across the screen. Underclocking doesn't seem to remove this either.

I've got a 350W PSU but I've ordered a 400W incase it's a power problem (but surely underclocking would solve that?) and I've also ordered a fan in case it's a heat problem but the artifacts appear even after a cold boot so I'm wondering if the card has been broken.

If anyone has any advice or knows how to contact PEAK that would be most appreciated.

thanks

What are some tools that I need to keep my computer at "peak performance"?
So far, I already have the following:
MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
CCleaner
Smart Defrag
Advanced SystemCare

What else should I get?

A:Keeping my computer at peak performance?

Well, for starters, MWBAM is a Anti-malware/Security tool, not a performance tool. CCleaner and Smart Defrag are good choices for performance, I have never heard about Advanced SystemCare - if it includes a "Registry Cleaner", i'd keep away from it. Registry Cleaners usually do more harm than good.

Always keep an eye on startup programs as well (those can affect performance), and be aware of the limitations of your computer's hardware.

Outside of that, I think your doing fine program wise.
How do you feel the computer is running?

Please post your system specs as well.

I'm sure others will chime in.

hi

I have had the Windows 7 32-bit RTM for just over a day and find the Aero Peak too slow to display the thumbnail images.

My computer is quick, with 2.2 Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM, Nvidia Geforce 8600m 256MB DDR3, so clearly my laptop isn't the problem. It takes about 1 second to display the thumbnails, I think that's way too slow.

1. How can I make it display thumbnails quicker? Which speed do you recommend?

2. Will changing the speed increase memory usage of Windows processes?

This PC keeps crashing more times than you see crashes on the freeway. It comes in bursts. With the time between narrowing until it crashes during loading. Not the BSOD type - just flop - like the electrical power stopped.

Sometimes it seems like its overheated as reason (the temps though read normal).
Other more frequent times its just clicking on a folder - crash. Or scaring it by moving or scrolling the mouse too quickly - crash. As if the exertion was to much. Its not windows. I can reformat or grab another HDD & install win7x64 on it and thump - crash. Sometimes the critter will go for a day or three. Then it starts again. When it happened at the height of last summer the Repair shop claimed it was over heating. They were guessing. When I left it there it never crashed.
