Make sure all the cables are plugged all the way in... run a virus and spy ware scan... a good free spy scan is spybot... clean all extra files through the computer clean defray area found in program section... and maybe a defrag..... this is for the outside problem of a full computer that may have too many spy ware taking up your Internet and cookies filling your computer.... this could take some time but your computer will work a lot faster

What jack does the Slingbox Ethernet cable hook into on a ATT 2wire modem? I have a choice of DSL or one like the phones are hooked into. It's not working now so I'm backing up each step, no matter...


Before you change anything - is this a new device you are hooking up or had this thing worked in the past? First thing to do is reboot everything starting with the modem and ending with the computer at the end of the line. Wait at least 30 seconds between each device. Review all the connections - everything plugged in where it should be? (this is of course your question - see more below).

Eithernet connections (plugs) are RJ-45. The RJ-45 looks like a RJ-11 (telephone jack) only bigger. Typically, the RJ-45 will not fit into the RJ-11 AND SHOULD NOT. Why? Your Cat 5 eithernet runs on very low voltage and signal (packet switching). If you succedssfully get the RJ-45 CAT 5 cable into the RJ-11 phone jack, when the phone rings, you will be sending 60 volts into your network. Can you spell "Do I smell smoke?" A RJ-11 will have up to 6 wires (one pair or two pair or three pair) in the jack and up to 6 'buds' on the RJ-11 plug. A RJ-45 will have 8 wires (in the jack) and 8 'buds' on the plug of your cat 5.

Your device may say DSL on the Cat 5 connection - count the wires inside or the jack.

There are other Cat 5 connection types, punch down and terminal screw types, I dont think you are talking about either.

On your AT&T modem, you should find a RJ-11 which will attach to a near by telephone jack and a RJ-45 for your Cat 5 cable. Your modem may also serve as a router and as such would have additional RJ-45 ports. I suspect you are using a separate router for your home network. As such, one of the ports on the router should be marked Internet or Upload or maybe it is a special color or is set aside from the other ports. That special port will be connected to your modem and your other computers will use the other, lesser ports.

Of course, you could call your service provider for clarification also.

Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com - I am sorry you are having this trouble and I hope I have helped you in some way. I hope you are able to get your system back up in short order.

I have a linksys WRT54G, and I'm trying to hook up a wi-fi connection. As of now, my internet is Internet Explorer, and my current modem is a motorola SB5101. The Motorola modem is hooked up directly to...


Hello
Try this

1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.

Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.

So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.

Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.

Netgear WGR614 router with USB Cable Modem


When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!

My ethernet light blinks very fast and constantly...did not use to do this--just past week


It is common for this to show activity.
The flashing on the ethernet light is simply indicating data going between the computer and the modem.
Do check for spyware and virus to be certain all is well.

No bad things found and everything works.
Do not be concerned with the blinking light.

Hi, I'm an idiot! PLEASE HELP


you may be suffering from mixed Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling.
The wiring is slightly different and they don't work well when mixed in routers and modems etc. One or the other will work , but when they're mixed it'll do what you have going on here...

I would recommend wiring everything with cat 6 ethernet cabling. Look on your cable and you will find the labeling on the outer casing.

My modem light on my router blinking


You mean the power light? Or a light to the port you are plugged in to? It is normal to have a blinking light where your ethernet wire is plugged in. It shows that it is working.

Ethernet light keeps blinking


I think the light that blinks is the light that shows when you have a connection established to your ISP. Not sure if you have cable or ADSL but if the light is blinking then the router is Synchronising with the line card at the ISP/exchange end. If it continues to blink then no sync is occurring. If ADSL replace the microfilter and check that any devices atached to that line also have a microfilter between them and the socket. ALso try replace the phone cable to the microfilter to the socket. Finally you can see wether sync has occurred by looking in the log on the router
Hope this helps

Go to this site to download a manual to verify you have it setup right.
http://www.d-link.com/products/?tab=3&pid=WBR-1310&rev=WBR-1310
or try this first.
Power off your modem,D-Link and PC.
You need to have the cable that looks like a wide phone plug with 8 contacts instead of 4 (cat 5 cable) go from your comcast modem to the plug on back of the D-Link that is marked WAN.
Then plug a cat 5 cable into any of the 1 through 4 Lan ports on back of the D-Link to your PC's Ethernet port.
Then with all these powered off turn on the Comcast modem, wait a full 2 minutes for it to settle in. then turn on the D-Link give it 2 minutes then turn on your PC.
If that doesn't work for you refer to the manual or you have something broke that may require servicing in person by someone computer savvy.
Hope this helps.

Your modem is not synching. It could be a number of possibilities, and you're going to have to do some troubleshooting to narrow it down.
  • Verify that your AC, Cat 5, & ethernet cables are connected securly
  • Verify that your modem is not in "standby" mode
  • Power cycle your modem
  • Try a different cable outlet
  • Call your ISP to make sure your modem is provisioned and your service is set up for cable internet.
