I have a computer, a all-in-one printer, a phone line, and a cable modem. how do i make this work? there is no phone jack in the modem.

Okay... Let's see if I can help you out.

Yes, your cable modem should have a phone jack on it. Are you sure it's a modem and not a router? Do you have phone service through your cable company? If so, your modem should be phone ready. Just checking..... :-)

The first thing you want to do is get your computer completely set up and ready to run (do not turn on yet). Just make sure all components are plugged in. Everything should be color coded and different sizes & shapes making it virtually impossible to cross anything accidentally. Your mouse and keyboard should be the only two components having the same kind of connection but they are color coded on the connectors and behind the computer too. No worries!!! :-)

Next, get your modem hooked up. Plug in power cord and attach cable wire into the back of the modem. Next you'll need an Ethernet wire to go from the back of your modem to your computer. If you're not familliar with ethernet - it looks like a phone cord only bigger.

Next get your printer wires hooked up to your computer as per directions for your specific unit. Should be fairly simple.

Once you have everything connected, power up your modem. Once it's finished booting up, turn on your computer. Once your computer is completely finished booting up, Turn on your all-in-one. Your computer should now be showing...Found New Hardware. Follow on screen prompts.

I hope this info was helpful to you. If you do need further assistance don't hesitate to ask. If needed, I'll give you my # so I can walk you through it over the phone.

Good Luck!

Will not connect with dsl... all connections are checked by hand and by software troubleshoot and are sound and correct, everything was fine yesterday but today will not get a green light on the dsl at...

No light on DSL usually means a problem BEFORE the modem

Check all your filters (or disconnect phones just to test)

Also check your cables from the modem as well as the modem power supply.

Anything outside that is usually an ISP issue.

They will tell you if they can see your modem and give you tips on re-connect.

Also power down the modem for a couple of minutes along with all your computers.
connect modem first and power it up. Wait till all the correct lights are on (LAN may not light). Then power up one computer at a time to check for conectivity.

Link light blinking

On these cable modems the link light is supposed to blink when you are connected to a router/pc. If you are hooking up a wireless router new you need to power cycle/reset your cable modem before you hook up the wireless router so that way it can refresh its ip address.
