Depending on the type, usually there is a button at the top or front of the modem.

Dell computer modem makes loud rushing sound and won't work


Check connections. Reboot computer. Reboot modem. If no improvement - RESET modem to default. {N.B.: This will remove any changes you have made previously...(Have you checked with the help-desk at your Internet Service Provider?)!} It is usually done by pressing a paper-clip into a hole, usually on the back side of modem, for at least 10x seconds - (check with modem instruction manual). If fault remains after this try another modem. If second modem does the same, then it sounds like a fault in the computer. Check with ISP!
Sorry I can not help more - but you have not given much information; details; etc. I hope this helps - kind regards - 'b'ye - Bruce.

I'm having trouble connecting my emachine to a cable modem.


Turn off the computer before you begin making connections. Make sure the cable modem is up and running with your service before you attempt to make the computer connection.

  • 2 Connect the coaxial cable from the wall outlet into the back of the cable modem where it is marked "Cable" and has the male coaxial connection. Use an extension coaxial cable if necessary to reach the modem.
  • 3 Connect the CAT 5 networking cable from the cable modem where it is marked "PC" (or something similar) and connect the other end into the back of your computer where the networking card is. These connections are RJ-45 connections that look like oversized telephone jacks. If you also have telephone service through your cable provider, you will want to connect the telephone line into the port on the back of the cable modem marked "Telephone."
  • 4 Connect the power cord into the back of the cable modem and plug it into a power strip with power surge protection. The modem should power on by itself once it is plugged in. It will cycle through a power on self test and then make the connection to your cable Internet provider. Once the lights indicating power and cable are green, you are ready for Step 5. It could take several minutes for the modem to connect to your service provider.
  • 5 Turn on the computer and test out your Internet connection. Should your computer still have a problem connecting to the web you may need to reset your cable modem. You will find a small recessed button the size of the head of a ballpoint pen either on the back or front of the modem. This button will be marked "Reset." Pushing it once will allow the modem to reboot and reset all its connections. Turn off the computer before resetting the modem to allow the computer to flush all the networking connections out of its memory as well.


  • If the power goes out and your connection is not restored when it comes back on, always reboot the devices in this order: cable modem first, computer second. Keep the cable modem where it can get proper ventilation. Call your cable Internet provider if you get frequent interruptions to your cable Internet service and rebooting the modem does not solve the problem.

    First,power down your computer and disconect the power cable to the cable modem.

    Install Ethernet cable from the WAN/Internet port to the Cable modem's WAN port.
    then install an Ethernet cable from port 1 to your computer. you can use ports1,2,3,4 for different computers.

    Then power up the cable modem, then your computer. You should be able to get on the net.

    IE has been only working off and on all day. What


    Probably internet connection issues.

    (***Do this after talking with ISP***) Power down your modem, router, and computer. Check to make sure the internet cable is secure. If you have a replacement cable try it. Power up your modem 1st (wait 1 min.), power up you router, then your computer.

    ***1st check with your ISP*** (Internet provider... cable or dsl) to ask them to check the integrity of their line to your modem (they can do this easily). They will give you a rating of Good, Poor, No Connection. They will help you if it is Poor or No Connection (their side problem). If it is good they may have you power down the modem (and router-if you have one) and connect your computer directly to the modem (and reboot) to help troubleshoot.

    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.
