Well !! according to me you've got a programming problem in your modem due to electricity fluctuation so , to solve this check if u hv a user manual of your modem ... if u have then its really good...

u will find a re-programming isp code ...

now to solve this first switch your modem on then go to any browser and type in the isp code there which is somewhat like " 192.168.1.1 " etc.

type that in the address bar and click enter ..
find the reboot option in the menu and click it..
your modem will reboot and then your internet will start working again !!

now just connect to internet via your default connection ....
your problem is solved....

Broadband connection


You can try pulling the power to your modem and router, if you have one. Wait 15-20 seconds and then plug it back in. That will refresh the connection. If that doesn't help, you will need to call your Internet provider for help.

Describing Cheap Dial Up Internet Connections


Today you can find a 56k modem. Transmit data at a speed of fifty-six Kbit / s V.90 or V.92 protocol. You must understand that this is the fastest available dial-up modem. 56k is the limit of maximum bandwidth of a standard telephone line. Be sure to connect to the Internet in areas with less noise power to prevent low-speed Internet connection. At this pace, you can play online games, download large files, make video conferences or movies from a video streaming site. Many of these applications are not compatible with Internet Dial-face. A broadband cable high-speed, satellite or DSL Internet service are better preferences.

You should expect all to take a little time to coordinate a phone connection, negotiate the protocol and, finally, allow the transmission of data. In some places, this process is slower. Note that the entire system consists of three entities - the ISP, Telephone Company, and the user. All have the power to terminate the Internet connection for some reason.

Yes of course. Before the introduction of the latest 3G wireless high-speed cable and DSL broadband by satellite, it was a bestseller. Today, it's always a good option for remote areas that lack the technology or broadband fiber-to-date. Satellite networks are suitable for rural people who want to get broadband connections faster and reliable. In urban and rural areas, attracts fewer users dial-up packages which do not require very fast network and you want the lowest cost monthly cost for ISPs.

This technology is very similar to digital subscriber line (DSL), because they use a phone line. However, DSL is more preferable because it is much faster and can use the website and answer a call on the same telephone line. Unfortunately, dial-up does not work the same way, the caller will often find your line is busy. In terms of broadband connections, ADSL first. Offers the latest technologies that offer greater speed and accuracy, such as ADSL, SDSL, VDSL and HDSL.

I'm getting good internet signals to the modem, but am unable to connect to the computer. Any idea why?


How are you connected? USB or Ethernet from the Modem to the computer? Do you have other internet devices on your network? Vonage (Internet Phone Box), Another computer, Gaming console.

If you have 1 device connected - then reset your modem by removing the power cord for 10 seconds.
Replug your power after 10 seconds. Then check and see if your computer has a connection.

If you have many (2 or more devices) on this network then get a Router. and Newegg.com
You can connect as many devices to a router, but the modem will only be one..

These are the most simplest possible solutions. Otherwise contact Motorola. Your Internet service provider could check your modem for signal and communication problems.

Thank you for your fixya.com visit..

Can I download modem on dell laptop


Most of the time on laptops if there is no phone input for a modem you cannot just plug in and dial up. The process i use at home for my pc is dialing through my cell phone. If your carrier will allow you to tether your phone without extra charges check your phone manufacturers website for modem software. You then just connect your phone through a usb cable and set a internet connection matching your carriers instructions. Another solution is dificult without networking knowledge but you can set up a home pc with a wireless antennae as a ad-hoc server through internet connection sharing and then allow your laptop to connect through the "server" pc.

My ethernet light is blinking


Make sure you have internet. The ethernet light is blinking because what ever u have plugged into it is talking to the modem. The modem will then take that request and ask for it on the DSL/internet line. Make sure the DSL light is steady on and the internet light is on or flashing with activity.
