My Motorola sb5101 won't come online how do I troubleshoot this? My cable connection is fine. When the modem boots up the green power light comes on and stays on followed by the receive light and the send...


These modems are very tricky. When this type modem goes into stand by modem that indicates that you do have a connection to your internet service provider. The reason you cant get online is because all internet access is disabled wile the modem is in standby. If you look closely there is a button located on the top of the modem. This is the stand by button. If you hit that button it should take the modem out of stand by mode and reestablish your connection to the internet.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

One of two problems


me and another technician have just had a chat about this and the highest chance that you cant use your pc is that you may have a virus.

if there is a virus, it may be using your pc as a server to send spam, emails etc to other peoples computers which is the reason you cant switch your computer off and you cant really use it. it is so you cant stop the virus doing its job and getting rid of the virus

i would recommend disconnecting all networking on the computer, rebooting the computer into safe-mode and running all virus and spyware scanners.

Generally you can just hit the space bar a couple of times, and that should bring the machine out of Standby mode. However, if it is not Standby but Hibernate mode, you usually need to push the power button to bring it back from Hibernate.

You can adjust these and other power settings by going to the Control Panel, and clicking on the Power Options applet.
