Re: network cable unplugged

Pls. check your cable, re-plug it from the LAN card and to the modem. If doesn't work and you see the message again, try to replace your cable.

First thing. Shutdown your computer and unplug everything from the modem (including the power cable). Turn on your computer and log into your desktop. Now plug the power cable into the modem, and then plug in the USB from the modem to your computer with NO network cables plugged into the modem. If that doesn't get the driver installed, here's a link to one you can download below.

Can this modem work on a gateway laptop?

No... wait...

Do youe a dial-up service? or do you have a cable network?
This modem is for a cable system, like Comcast or Time Warner.

If you need a dial-up modem like the one in your laptop, then obtain a USB modem from Best Buy, Fry's, Office MAX/Depot:
like a "Zoom" or "SupraMax" or "US Robotics" brand, 56K v.92 modem.

Zoom X6 installation

you need a ethernet network card, if you want it connected to the x6 directly, or you can get a wireless card for the desktop.
the instruction for setup the x6 is straight forward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.

if you need more information please email me at

please rate if the answer solved your porblem.

Can't get modem to work if I use the USB connection

Your computer is attempting to find the network connection through your LAN port. Your best bet is to reconfigure your network settings to seek its external network connection through USB, or better still, obtain a router(I personally recommend linksys wireless/basic routers due to stability), and simply use the ethernet connection through it. While this is bypassing the initial issue, it is also saving yourself a lot of hassle when it comes to retooling the PC's settings on the USB connection.
