Won't connect to internest.

first there should be 2 cables connected the device.
1) power adapter
2) ethernet cable from either a dsl modem or a cable modem connected to the wan connector
with most cable modem service its usually dhcp meaning you are always connected to the internet
with some there is ppoe connection where a user name and password is used to make a connection to be on the internet with the dsl modem
there are some dsl companies that are dhcp just like the cable modem companies.
with the ethernet cable connected the wan port on your router there should be some kind of activity light on the router but check with the type connection from your dsl or cable internet provider. also you will need a second ethernet cable to connect your computer to setup and configure the wireless settings and wep protection.
need more info?

My router is not conact to network

The first thing I would suggest doing (to ensure you have a good connection) is to bypass the router, and connect directlyto your internet connection (whether it's a DSL through your phone company, ora cable connection through your cable company, you should have an incoming cat5 (Ethernet port) connection which looks like a phone jack, but slightlylarger.tgvern_8.jpg Remove the incoming jack on your router, and plug that onedirectly into your PC's Ethernet port . That should work OK as long as you have an active connection. If not, contact your provider and inform themof the problem. Assuming that works OK, then remove it from your PC, plug itback into the router, and while you'reback there make sure any other connections are also snug (they should "click" into place). A loose wire here will cause the "networkcable unplugged" message since the connection will be incomplete. I would also suggest to "soft boot" your router and cable modem(or dsl modem, as the case may be). Simply remove the power wire to the router and modem, and leave themunplugged for a minute or two. Reconnectthem both, and reboot your PC while you're at it. This will often solve many minor problems. If you are still having trouble, or if it works for a while,then starts to misbehave again, you may have a failed or failing router. Luckily these are pretty inexpensive, andfairly easy to set up depending on your security settings, etc. You can always post a new question if youhave specific questions regarding setting up a router, etc. I recommend using DLink or Linksys routers for most customers, but your cable/DSL provider may recommend a specific model for their customers. Good Luck!

Hi,,,,was wonder if there a problem....on that windstream black box that has power ethenet dsl activity ,the avtivity blenks a there a problem

No, it only tells you that it is processing something and that the modem is active. Even if you are not doing anything on the computer it may or may not blink. But generally, it is perfectly fine.

What you have to watch out though are the
>POWER, if this light turns RED or OFF, it means there is something wrong with the modem.
>ETHERNET, if you are using an ethernet cable to connect your computer to the modem, it may or may not blink but it's ok, however, if it is OFF, it means there is no connection between the modem and the computer, check the ethernet cable and make sure it is securely plugged into the modem and into the computer as well. If you are using a wireless connection though, it's ok to see the ethernet light to be off.
>DSL, this light should always be STEADY which means the server where you get your internet service is fine. If it's blinking or RED, it's otherwise. If DSL is OFF, first check the connection between the modem and the telephone jack.

I hope it helped you. Rate for this information will greatly be appreciated. Thank you!

I have had problems connecting to internet all weekend (internet - red light), am on now but internet and ethernet green light keep blinking, is this ok.

No because dsl light should be solid green light. You need to contact your ISP to check if there is a problem on the network.

Why my modem dsl isn't recognized by my computer

It does *NOT* need to be "recognized".

Connect a telephone-cable from the modem's telephone-port to a telephone wall-jack.

Connect the AC power to the modem.

Connect an Ethernet cable from the Ethernet-port on the modem to the Ethernet-port on your computer.

If you don't get an Internet connection, contact your ISP, and ask for Technical Support, and get them to trouble-shoot.

Constantly blinking Activity light

Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future...
The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations.
1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals  about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..

So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks....
Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....

If you're using your system as the Host for the other systems, turn off your sleep mode. The Host should be active at ALL times.
