My modems LAN light is blinking and I can't get Internet, I've tried unplugging it, but the problem still exists, please help


There will be 4 lights...

Power
Dsl
Internet
Ethernet

Power light indicates power supply is good...
Ethernet light indicates connection between modem and computer is good...
DSL light indicates connection between modem and telphone line is good... Also DSL light should be steady and it should not flash...
If it flashes then it says there is a lot of noise in telephone line...
Internet light says whether the internet status is connected or not...Internet light can flash depending upon the internet activity...

Acer Travelmate 250 wireless problem


Dear carlosdperez,
When you try to connect to the internet, you must create the new internet connection first, this because you use the difrerent hardware or modem to connect to the net. All you have to do is configure the new connection use your UK SKY Sagem modem and fill all the required input include your dial up number and so on. This is HOW:

Start Menu>Connect To>Show All Connection>Create The New Connection>>>> Follow the wizard>PRESS Next>Connect To Internet>Setup Connection Manually>Choose your Hardware/Modem (UK SKY Sagem Modem)>Use Dial Up Modem>Enter Your Connection Name>Enter Your dial-up Numbers>Enter Your Passwords>Confirm>DONE.

Since it succeeded, you should see the new connection on Start Menu>Connect To>>>

Good Luck!
Best Regards,

3. if u can go online, then connect your router isolated port to the modem amd your computer back to the router's lan port(port 1) and check for the solid internet,power,modem,lan lights on the router.
4. if all are solid lights , check you can go online else you can hold the reset button at the rear side of your router for 2 mins if you have a cable modem and then check for connectivity.
5. If you have a dsl connection , then better contact customer care, they assit you very well.

My wireless connection keeps going on and off


you have to connect your computer first directly to the modem to test if you'll get the same problem hook to it. if same problem occurs you have to call your isp or whoever gave you the modem to have it reset or reflashed.

LAN problem between Belkin modem and P5P800-VM MoBo


When you connect the pc to the router does the port number where that pc is connected is there any light on it? if there is check the IP address of the pc.
Click Start>RUN>type CMD click OK>type ipconfig on the command prompt if it says disconnected try changing the ethernet cable.
If you already receive a IP address that's good then try getting online.
