My I have an older DSL modem, Siemens Speedstream 4100 seems to be slowing down

Seems to take forever to download and I notice that videos liike on Youtube seem to rebuffer more.  I have a DSL modem, Siemens Speedstream 4100.  When they wearout do they just quit working or do they noticably slow down?

Thanks

What kind of devices are you using (computers, tablets, etc.)?

What operating systems on those devices?

What browsers are you using?

What speed package is your DSL?

Have you replaced your filters?

 

Have you tried running a speed test at www.speedtest.net ?

 

I'm still using a 4100 that I've had almost ten years, and it's still going strong, so I can't tell you how they die. It's possible what you're experiencing is symptoms of failure.

 

You should be able to go to Best Buy or Walmart and buy a DSL modem to test whether it's your 4100 or not. If the new modem is slow too, you know the problem is not the 4100, and you can take the new modem back for a refund.
