Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

The telephone wire got pulled out of my modem.

I can identify where two of the wires go (the blue and the white with a blue strip go in the center of the plug) but replaceing them doesn't give me phone service. I'm sure that one or more other of the wire need to be attached (there sre spaces for four of them), but I don't know which ones or where to attach them. My modem is an Arris, and I'm bundled with Bresnan Communications.

Those should be the only two wires that need to be attached for dial-up (coming from an electrician's son) but for DSL or cable, you should be using an Ethernet cable with the wire colors from the bottom of the connector and left to right with the wire facing down in the order (Orange-White, Orange, Green-White, Blue, Blue-White, Green, Brown-White, Brown).  Hope this helps!

Before connecting to the internet wired or wireless, a blue screen occur... I unistalled wireless drivers and re-istalled again, I replaced the wireless unit with a new one using the original configuration...

Try getting the driver from the manufacture on the internet. The driver maybe corrupt causing a blue screen. Another solution is to use a live linux cd, example puppy linux and see if works that way.

Modem !!!!

One end of the DSL-modem connects to the telephone jack.
The other end of the DSL-modem connects to the _ETHERNET_ port on your computer -- it does *NOT* connect to the _MODEM_ on your computer.

So, do not look under "MODEMS"; instead, look under "NETWORK ADAPTERS".

Hi,may i ask?

  • MODEM is a modulator-demodulator.

IS A HARDWARE, modem is a device that enables a computer to transmit data over, for example, telephone or cable lines. Information is stored digitally whereas information transmitted over telephone lines is transmitted in the form of analog waves. A modem converts between these two forms.

  • while Audio driver, IS A SOFTWARE
A driver is software that allows your computer to communicate with hardware or devices. Without drivers, the hardware you connect to your computer—for example, a video card or a webcam—will not work properly. In most cases, drivers come with Windows or can be found by going to Windows Update in Control Panel and checking for updates. If Windows doesn't have the driver you need, you can find it on the disc that came with the hardware or device you want to use, or on the manufacturer's website.

Are you sure it's a modem and not an Ethernet port? The port looks like you can plug a telephone line in, except the port is bigger. If you try plugging in a telephone line in and it won't click into place, then what you got is an Ethernet port.
