Re: the modem is not switching on.
Sound like the power suppy is on its way out.
check the fan on the power suppy if there is one.
if not, place you hand on the modem, and see if it gets hot.
if it is, then you need to provide some type of cooling.
and that donesn't help, then is time to get a new one.

The problem is with my modem.

1: unplug all the cords to the modem
2: press the reset button from the back of it
3: leave it for about 5 minutes to drain off the static charge
4: plug it only to power source to see if the power lights up
5: if does'nt don't waste your time on it, its bad and if it was provided to you by your internet service provider get it replaced for free.
6: if you bought it yourself check for warranty generally modems have lifetime warranty
First thing is all electronics items are made up of ICs, registors and capacitors. What will happen if you strecth and release a rubber band 100 times in 5 minutes?. it may break or will break very soon. on the other hand what will happen if you strecth another rubber band and leave it strecthd for 5 minutes?. no change will be there in the rubbers tensility. So is the case with every electronic items. when they heat they expand and when they cool they shrink to original. so if you swith on and off your modem the components will expand a little with heat and when u switch off modem the components will come to original position. if this process is repeated daily twice or thrice then i dont think that your modem may be working fine till next year. so let it on for the whole day and switch it off only when u sleep at night if required., thanks.
It is absolutely not necessary to keep a dsl modem plugged in if you are not using your internet. It is good to plug out the power adapter when not using it to have a longer life.
I have one at home and when I leave it on for a couple of days plugged in, I would have to unplug it for a few minutes and then plug it back in or I wouldn't be able to connect to internet.
