    Its a older version Sony Vaui {sp} PC -on Comcast broadband internet cable service -I have a motorola modem that I purchased so its not part of my provider serve. I phoned Comcast already and they said the link was good so it must be the modem ? I have had issues lately with really slow service so I unplugged everything and rebooted. When I plugged back in the modem no longer was working. The only light on is the standby.
    thanks in advance for your help.

Ok it sounds like you may have hit your stand by button by mistake.
look on the modem for a button probly on top or in back. if there is no button unplug from the wall wait 5 minutes and replug to reset the modem.

Make sure your modem is plugged in correctly in the right port.

If everything is plugged in correctly, then

1- plug your router to the ethernet port of your Pc
2- go to 192.168.0.1
3- log in
4- click on wireless settings (located on the left sidebar)
5- click the little checkbox that says "Enable Wireless"
6- Save the settings and log out

Hope this helped!

My Motorola Sb5101 modem will not let me access the internet, the send light constantly flashes and i can't attain any internet connection.


If you have the following lights :
Power light - on
Receive light - flashing
Send light - flashing
Online light - off
PC/Activity - on
Standby - off
Then your Network Access is OFF - modem is successfuly registered but Network Access Control is disabled via DOCSIS configuration file.

Call your internet service provider....

My internet won't work on my new laptop.


First turn off you laptop. Second, go to your comcast cable modem unplug it from the wall and wait about 3mins. Now plug the comcast modem back it and wait for all the lights to come back (will take about 2-3mins). Now plug the yellow ethernet cable into your laptop if its not already and turn your laptop on. You should now have internet.

Also if you using a Comcast Surf Board modem be mindful of the standby button on top of the modem. You can tell your in standby mode if the standby light (bottom light) is amber. If it is press the standby button once to get out of standby mode.

hope that helps

Zoom ADSL X6 Modem "Link" Light Suddenly Blinks Continuously


the modem may have gone faulty so if your isp provided it ask them to replace it if the modem is in warranty period and if your isp provides internet connection through the phone line then first please try plugging the modem on main socket in with an adsl filter plugged in and if this is not the case then problem is definately the line through which the broadband signal come to your place which is suppose to be sorted out by your isp.
