Question about Linksys Computers & Internet
I connected modem by usb and every time i browse in about 15 minutes the usb light shuts off and then system gets stuck plz help?
You may need to reset your device and you will see a reset button at back of your router so all you need is to keep holding it for 10 seconds then unplug the power jack for like 1 min and then your device shall be reset.But please make sure to backup your all settings first.

Regarding the error code, all you need to do is update your driver. You can do this by downloading the most up to date driver from motorola here.
Unfortunately, it seems like this might be two seperate issues.
Sometimes machines, especially laptops but it will happen to desktops as well, will shutdown when they are overheated in an attempt to prevent damage to the physical hardware. Judging by the "after about 15 minutes" comment, I think this might have something to do with it as that 15 minute window would give a non-functioning fan or unventilated laptop enough time to overheat your machine.
If the driver update does not stop the random rebooting and you do not think the machine is hot when it reboots, do this:
right-click My Computer and choose Properties; click the Advanced tab. In Vista, click the Start button, type System, Properties, Advanced, and press Enter. Click Continue if prompted by User Account Control.
In all versions, click the Settings button under 'Startup and Recovery'. Uncheck the Automatically restart box, and click OK twice. The next time the problem occurs, instead of rebooting you will likely see a text screen reporting a system error. Report back with what error it gives you.

SOURCE: Dear forum-freinds,
If you say the lights are going out on the modem when it boots you off the network then the problem is your modem and not your internet connection, if the modem is new take it back and have them swap it for another one.

That's got nothing to do with windows 7. You have a problem with that modem. Oh & if you're trying to use windows 7 on a dial-up connection,it's not going to work well. Microsoft pretty much stopped any support for dial-up on the newer operating systems. So if this is your situation,I'd downgrade to xp, vista won't do well either. Now if the modem you refer to is a dsl or cable modem, try "power cycling" it by unplugging it for 30 seconds & plugging it back in. Do this with the pc off until the lights on the modem are normal again. Then plug the pc back in & see if it's ok. If not,call your ISP & talk to tech support. It'll be on thier end.
