Question about HP Pavilion 8860 (P2941A) PC Desktop

1 Answer

HELP II I still need help for the internet. It went off and wont work. We got a new modem and it still won't work. My dad hooked it up correctly and he said it was hooked up correctly. The Windsteam Co. made the modem and my mom said the company did it wrong, not the computer. A few days ago it was said there was an outage in my town. What's the problem, the modem, the wiring, ot the computer? (we had the computer possibly since 2001) Please help.

    Two questions:

    1. Is this cable or DSL?

    2. How are you connecting the PC to the modem, with a LAN wire, or a USB connection?

I suspect that when you connected the Hardware (the Modem) you did not install the drivers and/or did not re-enter the settings that your ISP gave you.

Contact your ISP's Help desk. These usually run 18 or 24/7 to answer questions just like this. They can run through a series of questions and supply settings that will get you back onto the Internet all while you are on the phone.

Good luck.

I have the linksy WRT 54G. My modem went out so I bought another AT&T modem and now the router will not work and I know not what to do. Help Thanks, Vickie


You might have to call ATT, they will have to register the new modem for you. Without this step, you won't have Internet access. Good luck.

Have you tried powering all three off, restart the modem, wait until it is fully up, restart the router, wait until it is fully up and then restart the computer? Sounds like the IP address's are not coming up correctly. As far as the reconfigure problem, the support guy couldnt help you with that?

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem


I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.
