If you have ANY anti-virus, spyware, scumware, adware, etc running in the background, disable these first.
Try installing the program/drivers in safe mode.
Go to the manufacturers website and download current drivers.
These are generic answers, if you still need help, please be more specific on make, model of modem, OS (operating system), ok?
You will get clarity when you view the event viewer in windows. probably you might have memory allocation problem or driver conflict or max. it could be hardware prob. Event viewer might be able to give you a better picture on what is happening..
Check if it's recognised on the local area network etc,make sure driver is installed and you may need to reset all pc,router etc to get connection.Now remember you need a router for this to work,with only a modem it will not function.You also need to restart all instruments etc before it's picked up by the router and the network..Google a bit and it will solve this.Make sure it uses wifi and not bluetooth as then it will need the right bluetooth connection to your pc..
I recently had this problem after buying a voyager 210 modem/router to replace the voyager 105 (in my case supplied for AOL broadband)
I tried to uninstall the voyager 105 and encountered exactly this problem - newdev.dll missing, Admin privileges required
After alot of Internet searching I found no answers. But in desperation tried this and it worked. I am by no means any computer expert so don’t blame me if this does not work for you, or damages your machine.
To install my 210 modem I was following instructions found here -http://www.sohodata.co.uk/soho.htm But first I had to get rid of the 210
Here is what I did, exactly as I did it (some of it is probably unnecessary) Further below is a condensed version I expect would work.
1) Firstly I restarted in safe mode by pressing F8 in start-up ( I was doing this because i had remembered an administrator profile and considered attempting to uninstall from there.)
2) I logged on as the administrator.
3) Attempted to uninstall the voyager 105 via control panel and via the uninstall icon in the programme folder. - Both Failed with the above-mentioned problem.
4) I navigated to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files)
5) There I highlighted the folders "British Telecom”, "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", "Voyager Test". I cut these folders wholesale and pasted them to my USB pen/stick (incase I needed to put them back)
6) I then ran disk cleanup (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools.)
7) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged the USB pen/stick and the USB and DSL cables from the back of the Voyager 105.
8)I turned the computer back on (starting up normally), logged on with my normal username which has admin privileges. Ran the driver install for my new router (previously downloaded from BT at –(http://www.btopenworld.com/broadband/adhoc_pages/driver_homepage.html#yahoodrivers) It stated that a BT driver was already installed.
9) Navigated to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall …. AND IT DID IT! No error, or messages about newdev.dll or privileges.
10) This left me free to install my new driver and go through its install process ending in plugging the USB into the back of the modem and having internet again.
Here is what I expect would work
1) Turn on and log on to any account with admin privileges.
2) Navigate to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files).
3) Select and delete (or to be safe, cut and paste to a removable drive) the folders "British Telecom", "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", and "Voyager Test".
4) Remove removable drive and run disk clean up (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools).
5) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged existing modem.
6) Turn on computer log back onto account with admin privileges. Navigate to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall.
7) Install desired drivers/modem.
If you find this works for you too and have asked this question elsewhere, please copy this solution so others can solve this problem too
Best thing for you to do is go on the manufacturer site ... of the modem and go under support and download the latest drivers and software for the modem. There has probably been some updates since the modem has been sitting on the store shelf that address your problem installing the software. I hope this helps.
Blinking light means that firmware on your DSL modem just got updated. The modem is pinging the Networ/Computer connected to it. If you open your Modem Page 192.168.1.1 you will see the difference, unless you never have done it before.
This modem can be used via one of two ports:
ethernet port (network port)
or USB port
If your computer has an ethernet port, it is perferable that you connect through this as you will have better performance. If you don't then you can get an ethernet card installed inside the CPU.
If it's not possible to connect via this connection and you have to use the USB, then you will need drivers.
This website gives you full instructions on how to use this particular modem and also gives you the USB drivers if needed.
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
keepin it hardcore!!!!! = (htid) hardcore till i die !
