Qwest DSL issues with MTU and performance

If you are having any problems with Qwest related to performance, quaility. Uptime or xbox live, netflix working on more than one system then you MUST bridge the qwest modem and add a Dlink Xtream or something like that.


This has solve years of problems in 5 different networks and location. It doesn’t make downloads 100% all the time they still lock up and fail randomly but everything else works.


Other symtoms are some websites don’t load, some speed tests don’t work, pings do work, email doesn’t work well.



  1. I do accept as true with all the ideas you have offered on your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for beginners. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  2. I tried to get verizon to take my cell number off the blocked ip settings in verizon and they said they could not do it. who do i call to get this done. which department? i have a droid and entered the right settings for my mobile vpn; but no connection

    • do you get the error, you are firewalled?

      In the blog post there is a product code you are tell them to take off. The best way to contact a business rep and have him do it. Otherwise you have to fight tech support until you get someone with their head out of their ass. It’s not easy.

      I’d ask them to contact Verizon ISP(Internet) Tech support of IM chat. Once you get to those guys they will fix it in a few minutes. They do have these guys but you and I can’t communicate with them. You must convence the Support to contact them. Normally talking to a manager helps, but if not get to teir 2 then ask for a manager and explain the issue. You can always send them here but there is also a link to the verizon forum where this case has been worked on for more than a year.

  3. Filter systems are used to block the particular dsl transmission. If you use this on your own cable box, your modem will not likely have the indication and also you defintely won’t be capable to go online. Make sure the modem is actually …dsl modems

  4. hi!,I like your writing very much! share we communicate more about your post on AOL? I require a specialist on this area to solve my problem. Maybe that’s you! Looking forward to see you.
