I lose my modem access code every time I leave my computer for an hour or so, why?


Open Device Manager and locate the modem/network card. Under Power Management of the particular device, disable the option to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Leaving the power on should prevent the modem/network card from disconnecting.

I try 2 plug my modem up 2 my ps3 but the ip address timed out wat do i do


After you have the Ethernet cable from your modem plugged into your PS3 press and hold the reset button on the back of the modem for about 5-10 seconds. This will reset the modem so that it will recognize the connect to your PS3. Once your done using your PS3 and reconnect the Ethernet cable back to your computer you will have to reset the modem again. Any time you move the Ethernet cable from one device to another you need to reset it after you have the cable connected to what ever device you want to get online with at that time. If you do not want to keep resetting your modem all the time a router will allow for you to have more then one device online at a time. The router will connect to your modem and then your devices will connect to your router.
