I bet you guys can fix this / actiontec c1000a Eth problem So I have this problem with my actiontec c1000a that's been driving me crazy! When connected via ethernet, HTTPS pages perform incosistently if they load at all (Google services, such as drive, or even https searches) and worst of all, Windows Update can't search for updates at all, however--all wireless conections to the router work flawlessly. Router (actiontec c1000a) settings are default. Any ideas guys? Thanks!
It seems that running the windows updates fixed the issue. Perhaps one of them contained a fix? This thread can be deleted if need be.
Embarassing...is there no way to delete posts on this site? I thought the issue was resolved because Windows update seemed to find one update, but it just wnet back to error 80072ee2, which it's had for 3 days now. Any advice is still greatly appreciated now.

glad that fixed your issue, that was easy enough
Actually, that didn't fix my issue lol. I can't edit my post. There are a whole strange plurality of issues...I sometimes can't connect to steam or start one of my games. Some google searches seem to stall for minutes and never even load (HTTPS I think), windows update can't find drivers automatically and windows update sporadically works. Again, none of this happens when i use a wireless connection to the router, only with ethernet. Any ideas guys?
A possibility, it looks like you have a firewall or antivirus program enabled in your wired adapter properties but not in your wireless adapter properties. I would suggest comparing the properties settings of the two adapters. Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center, then select change adapter settings. Then right click local area connection (wired) then click on properties and note the list of resources and those checked (enabled). Do the same for wireless network connection. You will probably see a firewall or antivirus program enabled in one but not the other.

Well I think I've figured it out. Turns out when I disable ipv6 in my eth device it seems to work. Checking my router, it seems ipv6 is disabled for lan devices automatically.
I have the Actiontec C1000A from CenturyLink as well. The issue I am having is the unit loosing the internet connection then after 2-3 minutes its a 50% chance it comes back, if not I have to pull the power on the unit.
I've gone through two units now with the exact same issues.... Here are some interesting things observed through by both units.
- Issues only start 24 hours after the unit is on. Issues seem to develop the more you the internet.
- When the internet goes out, I can't hit the C1000A admin screen seeming like an internet issue but I can connect to other devices on the network. Wireless signal strength is good.
- If I ping the wireless router I either get time-outs or ping times exceeding 70-90ms. Yet at the same time if I ping yahoo.com I get times of 50ms.
- C1000A system logs don't show any problems or issues. They don't even show my devices are disconnected from the wireless router when these issues occur.
- The C1000A either doesn't log from the DSL or they don't make make it available. (there is nothing DSL related in the system log)
- I would like to use my own switch and wireless router but could get either C1000A units to uplink to my LinkSys switch.
Just seems like there is some firmware issues with the C1000A.
CenturyLink says this is their best unit and doesn't have anything else for me. They won't just send out an older DSL modem.
Anyone have any ideas... before I scrap CenturyLink as my internet provider....?

Disable the wireless and then put the modem 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 your router for Automatic IP or DHCP.
You may also have an issue with your wiring. Check all your jacks and any other connection or splice points for loose or corroded connections, or bare or touching wires. If you don't have a filter at the NID, make sure every phone jack (except the modem jack) has a filter on it.
An easy test is to check the DSL line stats, then connect the modem directly to the NID test jack and check again. If there is a significant variation in the stats, then you have an inside wiring issue. If not, there may be an issue further up the line. Request a tech for a line check, or send a detailed message outlining your problem and line check request to: email@example.com

So I'm confused. Why does this have anything to do with the month long dead thread that talks about a completely different problem?
