Cannot install dsl modem


If the Modem needs drivers, and Windows doesn't already include them, you should have gotten a disc. However, if it's a newer Modem, it may or may not work with XP. XP It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one.

Troubleshooting DSL Modems


Ever look at your DSL Modem and wonder what all those lights mean? Why do some flash, while others remain solid? What if your lights are different colors? How do you tell if your DSL Modem is working correctly?<br /> <br /> Each light on your DSL Modem represents a function. The light is an indication of whether that function is working properly. Sometimes the placement and title of each function can vary by modem manufacturer, but they are pretty standard in interpetation. If you look closely your modem, you might find that each function is labeled in small print to help identify them.<br /> <br /> A standard DSL Modem has a light for power, internet, ethernet, link and wireless connection. A healthy DSL Modem will have a steady green light that does not blink or flutter for all features other than internet, ethernet and wireless. A flashing or fluttering light indicates movement and useage. When you are connected to your DSL Modem wireless, the light for this feature will blink indicating a connection and/or active useage. If the internet connection is working properly the color of the light will be green. If the connection is working but experincing a problem the light can turn to yellow or orange. If the connection fails, the light on the DSL Modem can be red or absent depending on the problem causing the trouble. If your service is turned off by the provider, more than likely the light will be "off".<br /> <br /> If your lights turn a different color, are absent or your internet connection fails try power cycling your modem before reporting the trouble to your provider. Power cycling helps the DSL Modem to reset its connection and repair your internet services.<br /> <br /> If you are using a DSL Modem alone to connect to the internet (no additional router) you can power cycle it by first turning off your computer and then unplug the modem itself from the power source at the wall. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then plug it back into the power source and wait for the warm up to finish before rebooting the pc.<br /> <br /> The DSL Modem should go through the normal warm up procedures of blinking lights, making them all stable and solid green ect. You will know when its finished warming up when the features are set at solid green (other than eithernet, internet and wireless connection as explained above). When the modem finished the warm up, reboot your computer and check your internet connection.<br /> <br /> Power cycling your DSL Modem can help keep your connection healthy and running at optimal speeds.<br />

I have a wireless linksys router and was using it with my cable modem. I changed to DSL and I can connect to the internet just fine using the Motorola modem, but I don't know how to get my wireless router...


Setting up the modem should not be a huge concern if you have the installation cd. Just start it up and it should walk you through the steps and automatically configure itself. The only information you may need is your ISP, your user name, and password. Most will set up automatically. If you need more assistance, let me know which model you have and I will try and put together a step by step instruction set.

Verify that the software you are trying is COMPATIBLE with the operating system on the computer.

Try removing the software and re-installing it in SAFE mode before plugging in the USB or Ethernet cable.

I have a used compacq 530 but do not know what is missing because i cannot get it to hook up to the internet


Possibly if you gave more information .....does it have a network card installed, is the network card "enabled" in the hardware settings, does the network card have correct drivers ? ( no yellow question mark beside it ) Do you have an internet provider and account ? Is your internet high speed or dialup, if it is dialup, do you have a modem installed - with correct drivers ? Is it working - do a modem query to see if it responds ?
If using a network card and cable or DSL internet, is the cable connected from the PC to the cable or dsl modem ? Is the cable or dsl modem plugged in and the power and wan light on ? With the little bit of information you have given, it is not really possible to give an exact answer to what the problem is.

Cannot connect to internet. I had internet connection over telephone modem before Hard drive crashed. I replaced HD and could not connect to internet. Dell was no help at all. I signed up for Verizon DSL...


I bet you are using the phone modem that canme in your machine. You need to connect the Network card ( Ethernet Card) and make sure the drivers are working. Find it is System, Hardware, device manager, look for ethernet.
Connection icon and see if the netcard driver is installed.Connect the cat5 cable that was sent to you with the DSL modem box. It chould be a yellow cable... It only fits one way and in a maked plug on the DSL modem and into the network card in the computer. Everything there after should go automatically.

Connecting FAX on HP OfficeJet Pro L7680


If you don't see a phone jack on the back of the computer, it means that you do not have a dial-up modem in the unit.
A DSL line is installed with the cable modem supplied by the DSL company, ie: Bellsouth, AT&T. It connects to your computer via the network port.
The DSL provider supplies the modem and the filters that you need to install on your phone outlets.

Hope this helps.

If it does, please rate it.
If not, I can give you further assistance.

I have a problem installin my modem the adsl does not work


DSL setup basics:
1: Check to make sure the line you connect your modem to is the same line that is registered to the DSL account.
2: Plug phone cable into modem.
3: Plug the RJ45 cable into the modem and into your computer.
4: Power up the modem and your PC.

Next Steps Varies Depending on ISP
5: Log into your DSL modem from your computer by using 192.168.1.1 (typically, may be different)
6: Set your PPPoE settings.

Also you can skip step 5 and 6 if you install the software they sent you to connect your system. Most people find this software completely useless and typically do not install it though.

Also you can call your ISP and they will walk you through every step to get you connected to them, that is their job.

Try contacting the DSL provider, if not All-Operatingsystems-Lost.
U may try Start-controlpanel-network connections-local area connection-properties
Ensure correct card under connect using.
click on configure.
click on advanced.
reset to auto detect
click ok
reboot
There are sometimes issues with the PPPOE. the DSL provider should be able to resolve this.

Actually, you cannot send faxes through a DSL modem. You have to use a phone line or send it through the internet (not directly through the modem), at least from what I know...
