Modem there just for looks?

I connect my broadband modem to my onboard and everything pans out fine.

Does it even do anything attached to my motherboard? I dont use it anyways would it be ok if I shut my puter off and put this bugger away or something?

Also I am interested in purchasing a broadband modem would it help my connection at all? Downloads come in quick but the upload rate seems pretty slow.

Sounds it is your modem. I had a similar issue with my old one. I had a westell 6100F and now have a 6100G that helped. My company had to replace about 150 of line about 1000 Ft away from my house. The cable was in a storm drain and it was getting wet and interupting my internat connection.

I had been using dial-up internet and then switched over to broadband internat. Now since I have disconnected the broadband net, I want to use the dial-up modem. However, I am gtg a note that the device...

It's kind of difficult to tell what your exact problem may be, but note that the cable and connections for dial-up and broadband are different.

The dial-up cable is telephone wire connected to its port in an internal modem. Broadband is connected with thicker Ethernet cable connected to a network card.

The ports look similar, but the Ethernet port is a bit larger.

So, you need to connect to the right port/card with the right cable.

When you connect to dial-up, you should hear a beep-beep-beep sound from the modem.

Hope this info helps.

Internet Connection problems

If you want the public IP Address assign to your computer, setup your modem into Bridge then create a broadband dialer to your computer. Through this dialer, you have to type in your username and password which will allow you to connect to the internet.

Unable to set up wireless router

Shut down your computer, unplug the cable modem and the switch. Connect all three - computer to switch, switch to modem. Make sure that the ethernet cable between the router and the modem is in the router uplink port and that the computer is plugged into one of the four ports that look alike. Wait 30 seconds - plug in the modem. Wait another 30 seconds, plug in the router, wait another 30 seconds and boot the computer. Open a browser and see if you have internet access. If you still don't, then try to check the browser by typing into the address bar of the browser. That should give you the browser sign in screen. The Linksys default is to leave the user name blank and type admin for the password. That should give you access to the router so you can check the settings. If this doesn't work, document carefully what happens and post again with your results and we'll try to go from there.

Tipps pls?

The error you refer here are due to Bad Username/Password.
Please type in your web browser, a pop-up window will show which require User Name and Password. Type both as admin (Please use only the lowercase letter). You will then be carried out to your Modem Configuration Page. In the Left Pan select first Reboot. From the right Pan select the lower button i.e. Restore Default setting. Your Modem will be rebooted. After booting the Modem (When all the lights are ON), again type and use the process as above to acess the Modem Configuration Page. Now select the WAN from the left pan. Press the Edit button in the row for PPPoE settings. Don't change any setting shown by default and press the next button. At the end you will get a text box to type your User Name and Password. Use your Broadband User Name and Password here (Not the Portal ID & Password). click next and then save. Now again just reboot your Modem by using the upper button in the Reboot page. You can use your broadband now.
Note: If you are unable to open the Modem Acess Page by typing, ask the BSNL person to change your Modem.
Hope this will solve your problem.
For any clarification, do contact me.

Speedstream exceptionally slow

who is your broadband provider?

Make sure you have set the MTU right in the modem, if this is set wrong it will stop you accessing certain website especially secure websites i.e online banks & possibly windows update. Most providers use MTU 1458, aol used to user 1400 now recommend 1450.
