2 Features

The Pro has special features that allow it to act as a router as well as a modem. The Home is only designed for use as a modem, and there are no router features.

Power (left): The USB light represents the power to the modem. If it blinks, the modem is starting up. If it is off, the modem is either disconnected from the computer, or the computer is off.

Network Connection or ADSL (right): The DSL light represents proper DSL connection to your ISP. If it is solid green, the modem has synced. If it is not solid green, the modem has not synced, and you need to call your ISP.

From left to right:

LAN: this green light flashes when data is being sent or received through the ethernet port.

Line TX: this green light flashes when data is being transmitted from your modem over the DSL line.

Line RX: this green light flashes when data is being received by your modem over the DSL line.

Line Sync: this green light flashes when your modem is syncing with the DSL hardware at the other end of the line. When sync has been achieved, this light changes to a steady green.

Power/Alarm: this multi-colored light will start out as flashing red when the modem is first turned on and is performing its power-on-self-test (POST). The light will change to a steady green once it has booted and is ready for use.

There is also a green LED beside the ethernet port on the back of the modem, this light will change to a steady green when a successful connection is made between the modem and whatever ethernet device you have plugged the other end of the cable into.

Up to 8Mbps downstream, and 832kps upstream for all Speedtouch modems.

Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
  • Has Thomson manufactured any Speedtouch modems with a faster through put as many service providers offer 24mbs speed and using their present modems defeats the purpose of paying for any internet service above 8mbps. Please provide some response as I would like to think that they have moved on to faster models and I'd very much like to buy one of them. Thank you.

It depends. The majority of Alcatel Speedtouch modems do NOT have the PPPoE protocol or stack built in to them, therefore they cannot authenticate to a PPPoE based service without PPPoE software being installed on the client computer. (also known as bridge mode)

However, if your Speed Touch Pro (with firewall) modem has firmware version 3.430 or later, PPPoE authentication by the modem is possible. See here for more info: /forum/remark,10372806~mode=flat
