Question about Conexant CX11252-11 Modem
I got my AT&T High Speed Internet about three weeks ago. It worked for the first day and then the DSL/Internet lights on my modem started flashing red. Sometimes it will continually blink from red to green, or just stay red for a long time. After a day or two, everything will be back to normal and I can go online for a few hours. Then it goes back to blinking red. I unplug it and let it sit for a long time before plugging the modem back in and it turns on and starts flashing red again. When it does this, I can hear a clicking sound within the modem as if it's trying to connect over and over again, but fails anyway. I don't know if it's the modem or my phone line. I don't have an AT&T phone line, so I don't know if the lines in my apartment are faulty or if it's just the modem overheating or disagreeing with my computer. Any help would be great.
Hi, You can try & proceed to HP website (http://www.hp.com/) and go to the Software & Driver Downloads (left side near the bottom). You have to determine the specif model/version of your HP computer which might look something like "HP Pavilion 4550Z" From initial indications you would be looking for an Internal Modem/Sound Card that was originally set for Windows 98SE. Chances are that it is a Conexant or Rockwell SoftK56 Data,Fax PCI Modem, with Master Riptide PCI Audio Device. Post back should you need additional information. State your PC's model. Good luck and kind regards.

well depends on if you want to hookup wirelessly with one or not. If the modem has a USB connection as well as ethernet, then you can hook up 1 computer to usb and 1 to ethernet with no problems. If you do want a wireless hookup then yes, you need a wireless router. I would just go with a router because of the convenience of being able to go wireless if you decide to. I would suggest a Linksys WRT-54GL with a 3rd party firmware (DD,-WRT, Tomato, etc.) Hope this helps.
