your modem is always talking to your service even when not connected to your pc it is just showing that it is working. Emachine manuals are a little hard to find, your best bet is to contact the store where you bought it, I know Best Buy used to sell the, they may have a manual, and you could try contacting emachines directly.

I've recently switched to charter as my providerand they installeda modem ( sbv51220) which works fine, but the monthly charge of five dollars irks me. I bought another modem from Bestbuy at the urging of...

Do you have phone service with Charter as well? If so the modem you have been provided is made to run both the phone service and the internet. If you purchased your own modem from best buy the phone portion would not be present so that is why those connections are not on the new one.

To cut to the point the new modem will work just fine for you internet but bear in mind it will now require another splitter for the coax cable line and each time that you add a splitter you will loose a portion of the incoming signal and this may affect your services.

Charging problem - battery?

Try an Antec charger with an adjustable votage output. I tried a new battery, charger, BIOS udate, etc, etc, etc. After fighting it for about 2 months, I found the Antec at Best Buy. Took it home, plugged it in, slid the adjuster up till the "charge" light came on. Been working fine for about 6 months.

It should work fine as long as the external modem has a USB connection and drivers for the operating system you're running (Windows XP or Linux).

Modem issue

a mother board is a big thing to replace. you may want to just buy another computer if thats the case. it may also be the way it hooks up. is it a card. if it's a card thta slot maybe shorting it out. if so try a diffrent slot. my best advice is move away from dial up all together.

My modem

Returning the computer to Gateway is the most reliable option, but unless you have the premium grade warranty this will be expensive.
You can buy a replacement from Best buy, but if it is for a laptop I would recommend either an external modem or a PCMCIA modem. Opening up a laptop is a job for an expert. If you have a desktop/tower PC then you can buy an external or an internal Modem, Only but the Internal modem if you feel confident about opening up the PC. The external modem is the safest to buy. You will need to check what connections you have on the back of your PC either a serial connector or nowadays a USB connection. Make sure the modem you buy is appropriate to the service you use e.g. dial up or DSL. The assistant in Best Buy should be able to help you with that.

This should fix it .
