Can a virus wipe out my modem??

Hello!
[ Older Compaq Presario, running Windows XP.]
I have an At&t 2wire modem that was working great. My nephew got a virus through Myspace or gaming that I ran McAfee Stinger on to get rid of. (I also had to install new windows updates), since then, my pc can't see my modem!
I can find the modem folders, but it is not showing up as installed, when I try to reinstall it, it gets hung and dumps us off. I didn't want to totally dump it because the wireless IS working and my laptop is the only working link to the outside world--lol. Any suggestions? I even did a system retore, but still have the same problem. Thanks so much!!!

No. Only by pressing the RESET button for too long (31 sec. and up) can wipe out your modem. This will fry your precious modem. :)

Yes you can but windows ME need the drivers of that adapter and (Very important ) The software for the wireless because ME don`t have wireless supported software as compare of xp,vista or 7 .
Make sure you have latest and updated drivers for the adapter and it should support ME .

My 2wire product seems to need resetting every few minutes. As soon as it's unplugged and plugged back in, it works. However, after a few minutes, it loses connection again. Is this an issue with my ISP,...


  • Re-run the Setup Wizard using one of the following methods if you are unable to browse the Internet:

  • Re-run the HomePortal Setup Wizard from the HomePortal CD.

  • Re-run the HomePortal Setup Wizard by going to http://homeportal/setup (http://172.16.0.1/setup) in your Web browser.

  • (For Windows only.) Re-run the HomePortal Setup Wizard by clicking Start > Programs > 2Wire Gateway > Run 2Wire Setup Wizard.

If required, make sure that you are using your unique username and password. If the problem persists, contact your ISP to verify your connection type and login information (if necessary). After verifying your connection type, also verify that you are using the correct keycode by referring to your HomePortal documentation or by visiting http://www.2Wire.com/keycode.

No power on my 2wire modem


try to plug your modem to another outlet like the one in your kitchen or bathroom. if you are using a surge protector, bypass it, plug your modem directly to the outlet. if still no power, try to use another power adapter, if it still not working, get a replacement modem.

Hello there, sounds to me like a softwere problem. Try downloading the drivers again from the website of the make of the modem. Install them again - if you're getting the same message after, Download anti-virus FREE AVG you can find this at this link for windows: http://free3.grisoft.cz/softw/70free/setup/avg75free_446a965.exe Install this run it on a test see what it says and you may find your problem. if not then you could do a deep clean and fully re-install windows xp - REMEMBER TO BACK-UP ANY FILES YOU WANT TO KEEP BEFORE DOING SO. in the meantime good luck Raverbaby keepin it hardcore!!!!! = (htid) hardcore till i die !
