Re: cant connect to cable

Hi Snuggles,

Make sure your networking permissons are setup properly, on the Vista. Since it varies with what version Vista you have, try this link.

Great help site for Vista. Click on the Network tab, follow the info to setup your networking, and if you are still having issues, got to the troubleshooting. Please make sure you doing your setup with a cable, too, not over the wireless.

Good luck

Well, Virgin Media provides Cable Internet connection and with those connections you can not use this ADSL modem. If you have internet services from then only you will be able to use this modem with them. This modem will not work with Virgin Media connection.

Hope this answers your query.

Cannot finish connecting

Hi fozzy211 - Please don't rate this 'til were finished. You've got two things going on. You said it's telling you to check the cables and then you say it's saying the router isn't from Verizon. Is it both? Are the cables hooked up correctly to your knowledge? We can fool Verizon's system. Let me know if you actually have two problems. For now I would only hook up one pc via wired until it's working. I'll await your response. Thanks.

Connecting my dynamode 6004 W G1 wireless router to modem

Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way. First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer. Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light). Next, plug in and turn on your router. You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.

No connection

Is your physical connection right???
the WAN port should be connected to your modem, and the LAN1 should be connected to your pc.....

if right, but still doesn't connect....
check if the lights of your router is working
the POWER should have a solid light,
the STATUS, WAN, LAN 0r WLAN should be blinking...

if right, but still doesn't connect....
What kind of connection do you have?
is your modem automatically detects your password...?
or you manually type your password to connect to the internet...?
