Do both computers say that? you didn't specify. It sounds to me like the problem is that you don't have modem drivers installed on the old computer. Hold down the windows button your keyboard and press the Break key in the upper left. this will open up a system properties dialog. click the hardware tab (depending on OS) and look for device manager. click that and look for any hardware with a question mark after it or an explanation mark. Question mark means no driver and explanation mark means device conflict of some sort or incorrectly installed driver.

I have a new computer after hooking it up my phone line no longer works at the same time as the internet am I hooking it up wrong? Or do I need to rew start something?


Make sure to use filters or microfilters on all the phone lines when the phone and the internet share the same line.

You may also use a splitter.

One port goes to your modem, one port goes to your phone.

I have a Qwest Actiontec modem that has worked fine until today. Now the DSL light is blinking and the Internet light does not come on. I have rebooted, but no fix. thanks!


If the DSL light is blinking it means that there is no DSL carrier signal to your modem. Check the phone line and make sure you have no open lines and filters are on all the devices hooked up to your phone system except your modem. You can check for an open line by hooking up a phone to the phone line going into your modem and listen for a dial tone.

Hooking up mx310 all in one


The phone line should plug directly into the Line plug on the DSL modem and the all-in-one should plug into the Phone plug next to it. If you need to split the line do it AFTER the line comes out of the Phone plug.

No directions for attaching a phone line to mfc 240c.


small phone line goes from your wall switch to the rear of your ADSL modem, then the fatter wire goes from the modem to the input on the rear of your computer.
If it is wireless modem,,and you have a wireless connection on your computer then it should discover the connection by itself, after hooking all the wires up properly

CAN'T GET FAX WORKING.


If it's answering on your main number, then you are not plugged into the fax jack. You should have a separate phone jack for fax. If you have internet phone there should be a second jack on the back of your phone box. You can test that you have a functioning second line by plugging the fax into it and using the fax unit to dial your home number.

Trying to hook up a Linksys Wireless -G 2.4ghz Broadband Router. Want to link my dsl and my xbox and then later down the road a lap top. Dont know where to begin. Do I take the phone line thats inthe wall...


first you connect the wire from the wall into the wan port in the back of your dsl modem. next you connect the outsource wire from your dsl modem into the wan port on your router. next put another rj45 wire into the number one port in the back of your router and the other to your computer. put another wire into number 2 and then to your xbox. everything need to be unplugged while you are hooking it up. once done power cycle...meaning plug up the dsl and wait for the lights to stay lit. then the router. the start your computer. if you want to go wireless just get a usb wireless network adaptor and there you are

Installed Lexmark 1240 but when I try to set up fax it says no modem found


Yes, This assumes that you are hooking the printer upto a 56k/Fax modem on the Computer, Which the Printer already has itself, What you will want to do, Is hook a Phone line upto the the Printer in the appropriate slot, and dont worry about setting the Fax feature up on your Computer, Just Worry about the Scanner, printer. For the Fax Feature, Dial the number on the Printer and It should work without Ever touching the Computer
