These lights stay steady on when plugging in the modem. Why? It is not on standby. The only way I can get it to work again is if I plug in the cable as I power it up, sometimes that doesn't even work.
usually, when booting up, the power light goes off and the one beneath it starts blinking and so on. However, it does not go in this sequence. It fires up, says there is PC/Activity when there is no cable plugged in other than the power and coax. Is there any solution to this?

Try this unscrew the cable from the back rub your finger over the center and the side of the cable.Unplug the modem for 20 seconds plug the modem back in and immediately put the cable back in. I can explain how this works but would take to long.
Your modem is either not working and you should request/buy a new one. Only other problem could be the incoming coax lines could have triggered a problem. But most likely the problem lies within the cable modem as they do have a tendency to just stop working.
If you have the following lights : Power light - on Receive light - flashing Send light - flashing Online light - off PC/Activity - on Standby - off Then your Network Access is OFF - modem is successfuly registered but Network Access Control is disabled via DOCSIS configuration file.
the most easy way to connect to the internet is get a bluetooth connetion (zippys) press the tools find device on the bluetooth on ur phone press pair device and press dial up inthe username put ur mobile number and password mobile number dial up number *99# dial
Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future... The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations. 1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..
So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks.... Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....
