Re: New to Centurylink - DSL - internet connection issues

I have had a recent problem with random disconnects on my CenturyLink DSL connection. I was using the 660 modem and what it would do is like drop the DSL connection. The DSL light would go out (and the internet light of course) and then come right back on within a few seconds.

We've gone through everything to fix that and yesterday they came and set me up with the PK5001z modem.

Now, I don't lose the DSL connection as often, but I get randomly disconnected in World of Warcraft quite often, while the rest of the internet is still working, but has extreme latency.

I've been reading about bridging the PK5001z due to these issues and tried to do so. But then I couldn't get anything to work. The DSL light came on, but the Internet light would flash Green and Red.

What port does my router need to be hooked up to on the modem once I switch on transparent bridging?

Extremely frustrated by this.

When the modem is in transparent bridge mode, the WAN port of your router can connect to any of the LAN ports on the modem (I usually use Port 1). The router has to be told to get the IP address from CL. If you are in a PPPoE area, enter that information on the WAN setup page in your router. If you are in a DHCP area, set the WAN port on the router for Automatic IP or DHCP.
