External Nortel Modem won't connect

Hi, i found a Nortel Networks Ntex-35 External (DSL?) modem at my local recycling center, with no adapter, manual or software disc. i've tried hooking it up to my PC, running Vista Home Premium, and couldn't get online with it.
Here's the specs on the sticker on the bottem of said modem:

'Nortel Networks 1 Meg Modem HSA
Model - Ntex35 BAAB
For use with only with Class 2 Power supply
16VAC 500 mA'

Another sticker near the front has this:
'Ntex35BAAB R02 B0253518
NTEX36BA R03
-------------------
NNTM60G5GLC3
Mfg. date: 2000-03-17'

If this is too much, just go by the specs at the beginning .

Plus, is it still possible to use MSN through DSL? I'm currently using dial-up and i've read online that they discontinued the DSL branch of their service.

    On a side note...
    How many 'wire pairs' does DSL use, 2,4, or 6?

DSL uses one wire pair since it runs off a POTS line (plain old telephone service).

The Nortel modems are very old - they were some of the first DSL systems that came out almost 15 years ago. They were designed to work with their own proprietary Nortel back-end (DSLAM) equipment. Since they use proprietary and now way outdated transmission protocols, they will not work with modern DSL connections since they do not support the standard DSL protocols. Unless there was somekind of firmware upgrade I wasn't aware of, its pretty much junk.

Nortel went bankrupt a couple of years ago. I used to work for them and some of the guys who designed their DSL modems worked a few cubicles away from me. I had a couple of them in the early days (we got free DSL as beta testers back in the mid-90's) - the modems are useless now, but I found the power supply worked well with my cordless drill charger.

I changed my cable modem and now my router wont work


With an always-on, high-speed Internet connection like DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), a router is a prudent addition to your local network.
It filters out unauthorized access to your network, which prevents an intruder from accessing computers that are connected to that network.
However, getting your computers, routers and modems on the same page may not work right "out of the box."
There are a few things you must be aware of, especially if this is a wireless network.

Unplug your DSL modem and D-Link router.
In order for the network to properly recognize its devices, these devices must be attached in a specific order.
Plug in your DSL modem's power cord.
There is usually no power button on a modem.
Simply plugging in its electrical cable will turn it on.
Give your DSL modem a couple minutes to re-establish its connection to AT&T's network before taking any further action.

Plug in your D-Link router's power cord.
Like the DSL modem, this router will probably not have a power switch; simply plug in the power cable, and it turns on.
Let the D-Link router sit for a couple minutes while it establishes its connection to the DSL modem and AT&T's network.
Physically attach your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Even if the router and modem are wireless, a physical connection must be established to properly configure the router.
If this is not a wireless network, then your setup procedure is essentially complete.
To access a D-Link router on your network, open an Internet browser and navigate to the 192.168.0.1 address.
This will bring you to your D-Link router's interface.
The default User Name is "admin" (without the quotes), and there is no password.
Enter the User Name and click the "Log In" button. This will bring you to the Setup window.
Refer to your D-Link router's documentation for changing the default password (highly recommended) and forwarding ports.
If this is a wireless network, you have a couple further steps.
First, change your network's SSID (Service Set Identifier) title, so that you can recognize it when other wireless networks are nearby.
Also, choose your wireless encryption and passphrase. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is a solid option.
Specific instructions depend on your model of D-Link router; so refer to your documentation (which can usually be found at the manufacturer's website if you do not have it on hand).
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer.
Your new wireless network should be visible with your computer's wireless adapter.
Windows and OS X will notify you of networks in range when your adapter is active.
Connect to the one with your SSID, and enter the passphrase.

How do you connect 2 routers into one network? I have a Linksys E3000 and a WRT110...I've had the wrt110 for over a year but I found I needed a second router to cover my entire house so I purchased a...


The easiest way is to run a long Ethernet cable from one of the 'LAN' (or 'network') ports on the "first" router to the 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on the second router. The "first" router is the one connected to your cable-modem or DSL-modem. Both routers will auto-configure themselves for this "wired" connection. Configure the wireless-adapter in the second router as per normal.

Or, run a long Ethernet cable from the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to a location in the "center" of your home, where you can put your wireless-router, such that its signal spans the entire building.

Or, move the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to a location in the "center" of your home, and connect the one router at that location.

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.
