If your internet or cable light is blinking then you probably have a cabling issue.These modems are designed to be ran with an RG6 home-run line to the cable box outside.You cannot have any splitters in between.A home-run is a cable that runs to the service box on the outside without any splitters.

Can't Connect To Internet

This has to be set up with a cable connected to it for the first time. Should be an install disk with this as well but if not you will have to get online somewhere and download driver.

The disk might not have a working OS on it.

It you have successfully run the disk utility the disk probably in full working order. I think that the OS on the disk is either missing, corrupt or not compatible with the computer you are running it on.

It sounds like you simply don't have the cables hooked up corectly to allow that.Would you please tell me how it is hooked up?For instance,what the outside cable is hooked up to input etc. I need to know everything you have available,and what OUTPUT and what INPUT is connected to where,starting with the outside cable,and if there is a cable box or not.Literally everything connected for use with the TV.Greg

The modem will not connect to the internet via USB (only ethernet

It sounds like you need to download a driver for the modem's usb connectivity. You can do this by "googleing" the make & model from the manufacturer's website.

Microsoft Digital Image OEM

When you install the program, does it give you more than 1 install Option? Most programs will give you 3 install options depending on how much disc space you want to use for that program. Typical, Custom, Full. If you haven't done so, I recommend uninstalling, reinstalling using the FULL install or Custom so you can pick and choose which features aren't necessary for you to have. If this works, excellent, it it doesn't, I am sorry, but hopefully it gives you a little bit of insight.
