Re: Lenovo Windows 7 causes Westell 7500 modem to reboot every 5-6 minutes

I had the same problem, and I think following the solution here fixed it - thank you!

 

I think it was uninstalling Lenovo ReadyComm that did it.

 

I had uninstalled McAfee, disabled ipv6, and executed the "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled" command as an administrator, and the modem was still rebooting.

 

Then I found and uninstalled Lenovo ReadyComm (and uninstalled VeriFace and ID Vault at the same time, so it's possible they were a factor), and the modem hasn't rebooted itself since.

 

Thanks again!

The readycom program was causing the router to reboot every few mins.

Re: Lenovo Windows 7 causes Westell 7500 modem to reboot every 5-6 minutes

This thread was sounding so good.... exactly my problem.

 

BUT  

 

I don't have anything called Readycomm installed!

 

I have a stock Lenovo X220i Tablet  with Windows 7.

 

 

Any clues where this same problem might now be hiding?

 

Thanks!

Re: Lenovo Windows 7 causes Westell 7500 modem to reboot every 5-6 minutes

Spoke to soon.  Circumstantially, it seems this has reduced the problem, but it is still there Smiley Sad Smiley Sad

 

Since I don't have Readycomm and I've turned off IPv6 ... what else could it be!?!

 

Thanks!  Please!?
