I just purchased a TD-8616 and a Netgear N300 router to use with Teksavvy but I can't get the damn thing to work.
I've tried calling tech support but have been put on hold for 30min + each time and given up eventually.
I still have the Bell Modem and it works perfectly with the teksavvy information so its certainly not the line.
I had an old ST516 I tried and it kept disconnecting and thats what led me to buy the TD-8616 but sadly it's even worse. Very slow speeds (to the point it doesn't even load a web page) and will often loose the lights and reconnect.
Why does the Bell modem work so flawlessly and my own don't?
I like In Niagara Falls Ontario and I use a DryLoop. There is nothing else on the line. I'm using factory default for the TD-8616 as instructed by Teksavvy.
What steps have you taken to get the modem /router up and running?
Here are a few follow up questions:
Is it (the modem) in bridge mode or not? Have you enter in the VCI settings? (I believe its 0.35 for Ontario) Have you checked to see if your login (@dsl or @teksavvy) / password works without the router?
