It doesn't need a separate modem; it replaces a modem in your home network. If it's properly connected to the phone line, and you have an internet service provider (ISP) supplying you with a broadband connection, and the PC is connected to the router, then it should all work fine.
If it isn't all working fine, the most likely problem is either that the wires aren't connected in the right places, or that the PC's internet connection isn't set up properly (e.g. if you changed from dial-up with a modem to broadband with a router).
If you have recently changed from dialup to Broadband, and you're running Windows, use the Network Connections wizard to set up the internet connection. In Windows XP you can do it this way: 1) click on Start 2) move the mouse to Settings 3) click on Control Panel 4) double click on Network Connections 5) click on File 6) click on New Connection Wizard 7) follow the instructions.
Your ISP should have sent you a CD-ROM to help you to connect, so insert the CD when prompted by the New Connection Wizard.
Sometimes you can just insert the CD into the computer and you'll be prompted to do everything necessary to connect to the internet. BT, for example, do it this way.
If you can access the configuration page of the router then check the IP configuration. Check WAN and LAN configurations. IP 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 will able u to access configuration page. Username and password hopefully be admin admin.
A lot of computers these days are supplied with no modem due to the popularity of Broadband.
To check if you have a modem on that computer do the following
Right click on "My Computer". Click "Properties". Select the "Hardware" Tab on the top. Then click "Device Manager". Go down the list until you see "Modems" and click the plus sign to expand it. If you see anything listed here you have a telephone modem installed.
If you want to stay on dial up and there is no modem in the list the only thing you can do is have one installed to the computer. However I cannot recommend this course of action. Dial up is a completely outdated and extremely expensive way of using the internet as you are charged each time the modem connects (like a telephone call). Even if you have a bundle of modem minutes from your provider it is still expensive and slow!!
Contact your provider and see if you can get Broadband in your area. You will not regret it - I guarantee you!
Thanks for using FixYa and please do rate my answer.
The broadband link light tells you the status of the connection between the modem and the broadband servers in your area. Green means everything is A-Ok while amber means your modem is not picking up a broadband signal.
Try turning the modem off and on and also make sure the cables are secure while you're at it. If the broadband light is still amber, the only thing you could do next is to call your internet service provider.
If it's a broadband modem (cable or dsl) reboot the modem. Also look for diagnostic lights on the modem, they will give an indication if the modem is working properly. If after rebooting the modem, you are still getting trouble lights, contact the isp provider and explain your modem is no longer working. Most isp's replace faulty modems at no charge.
Turn modem on and wait for it to sync with ISP (1-2 mins) Turn on router and wait for it to sync with modem (1-2) mins Turn on PC. It sound like your Router and Modem lost sync with each other. You must wait until devices sync and you must do in in the order listed.
lol the cost of your internet will only change if you call them up and change your plan. if you go out and buy a new modem it will go the speed of the modem....so basically having a broadband connection with a 1mbps modem is like trying to force an elephant through a mouse hole....lol so to answer your question straight you get a new modem you'll get faster internet....have fun
