Re: Time Warner Ubee Modem Problems!

said by TWCdude:

disable the firewall on the router and the ip flood detect

I was having a similar problem with the UBEE. Speed tests were fine but every connected device took forever to establish stable connections to the router and the internet after a reboot. After they got stable they would keep on working until the next reboot.

So I took your advice, disabled the firewall and the IP flood detect and so far that seems to have nailed it. What does the firewall do on this router? I'm assuming its more than the standard router proxy function and do I need it? Am I as protected as my old linksys router with it turned off?

I guess while I'm here I'll mention another very strange problem I had after the UBEE was installed. I appeared to be having DNS issues with certain sites being not found but to my knowledge the DNS servers in the router were the same TW servers as before the new UBEE. This site (dslreports) was one that seemed to be blocked. I noticed that you couldnt change the DNS servers in the UBEE so I changed it on the pc to the google DNS servers and the problem went away.

Can anyone shed light on this?

There was a short-lived issue with DSLR yesterday that occured probably about that same time you posted you couldn't reach this site.

Wow. That must have been quite a coincidence but I think you're right. I just tried it on another pc that still had the TW DNS and I could access the site. Thanks for that!

I have never seen a post on DSLR claiming something was "blocked" by their ISP, that turned out to be something actually being blocked. I'm sure there are a couple, but the vast, vast majority are due to other issues.
