Question about 2wire (1000-000057-000) Modem

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. :)

How or what do i need to connect internet i have router (2wire) from AT&T for wireless laptop but now i bought a desktop an compaq presario 5000 with windows 98


You need a Wireless adapter for the Compaq desktop. But with Win98, it will be almost impossible to find one that will work in your Compaq. Everything out there requires at least WIN XP.

Best thing to do is to use an Cat5 Ethernet cable and connect the Desktop to the 2Wire.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
Thanks, Joe

Yes it is best to format the PC and reload the OS again although I would suggest that you load the latest version of the WinXP family as single boot OS and work. It should give lesser problems with a single genuine anti-virus installed.......sodeep

Not able to open windows


Sounds like a hard Drive problem. A virus actually. The Best thing to do if Safe Mode Failed is the Repair Your system, to do this insert your XP CD and wait until it says 'Press any key to boot CD' Press any key and follow instructions to repair windows. If it works, run a virus scan immediately. If Not, take it itno a computer technitian to look at it if you want the stuff on your Hard Drive, of if you feel you don't care too much just wipe the Hard Drive and Re-Install Windows XP. just do the same thing as repair but instead follow the instructions for Installing XP and choose either Clear or Erase Hard drive if you don't want the info or choose don't clrear or Erase if you really want stuff from your hard drive, But run a Virus scan Immediately asap.

Hope This Helps
