Can't connect using usb cable


Try using Ethernet. That is always the recommended way to connect to the modem, and it works almost 100% of the time without having to install additional software or perform any additional configuration. If you must use USB for some reason then you will need to make sure you have the drivers installed properly before connecting the modem to your computer.

Can i connect usb port to printer port for network printing


No. The USB port on your cable modem is intended to be used only for connecting a pc to the network. Sorry for the bad news.
For network printing you can use a dedicated print server like Edimax ps-1206u, a great device that make even old printers to get on the network via USB and Ethernet ports it haves

How can i connect my laptop bought 2 weeks ago to my cable modem its a sb5101 cable modem by motorola


This modem is USB or Ethernet. I strongly reccomend using the ethernet and not the USB option as USB will lose some speed.
An ethernet cable is a standard RJ45 Jack'd cable (both ends) - check google images if unsure but you'll see the plug in the modem that is the same as one on your laptop.
If you dont have an ethernet port on your laptop (possible but unlikely) then you'll have to use the USB option - this is a usb cable similar to a printer usb cable (square usb end at the modem and flat usb to the laptop)

Hope this helps! please dont forget to rate :)

HP USB Modem does not break dial tone


If the information connected to your post is all correct (56k V90 usb), and you are using one line for both the internet and the fax, you should hang up from the internet before you try to dial out the fax.

You have not indicated your PC model, so I don't know what operating system you are using. For XP and newer versions, you have to set up and configure the fax using the wizard or configuration software. If you have not done that yet, you need to.

In xp, go to start, Programs , Accessories , Communication , Fax , and then click Fax Console.

You said your computer is new. Win 7 and Vista are much the same:

1.Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.

2.At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

3.Click Connect to a fax modem and follow the instructions.


You also need to make sure that your fax/modem is correctly listed in the control panel. In XP, start, control panel, printers and devices. If you do not have a fax printer listed, you need to "install a local fax printer."

The installation wizard should work in both OS without much trouble. If you do have difficulty, Microsoft and adobe both have "virtual printers" you can use. Look in Microsoft office or online.

Also check control panel of 7 to make sure that your modem and fax are listed correctly. Thanks for using Fixya.

Connect Modem to Laptop


yes. you plug it in. you plug your cable or DSL line in. Then if they have provided you with a USB A-B (like a printer cable) then you go from the back of the modem to the USB port of your laptop.

Lost connectivity to network printer when switched to ATT u-Verse


Is the printer connected via wireless? When I recently connected up a new wireless printer to my UVerse network, the printer manual said that establishing the first connection works better via an Ethernet cable directly to the Uverse router. After the printer is set up once, then I could remove the ethernet cable and connect to the printer via wireless from all my computers.
For all wireless PCs that were previously connected via wireless to dsl, you need to create a new network connection for each one, then enter the key that is listed on the side of your Uverse router when prompted. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to establish the connection.
I am amazed that ATT was so unhelpful on these issues. I was one of their first Uverse customers in Texas, and several times over the last years, techs would visit my house to solve a problem or hook something up, explaining to me as he went. That their helpful attitude is deteriorating is a real shame.

Toshiba Cable Modem PCX1100u


OK. First of all you do not need a special or seperate driver for the Ethernet port. Its factory loaded with your OS.

All you need to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on your HP Desktop and then into the LAN port (not the WAN port) of your cable modem.

The second thing is if its only a cable modem, then I suggest you proceed with caution as there is NO built-in firewall on a cable modem. Yes you will get on the net, but you are likely to be attacked with virus the moment you connect. I suggest you check very carefully whether the cable modem (if that's what it is) does/does not have a firewall as you would be very unwise connecting up like that.

Next, forget USB connection to the router/cable modem. That technolgy we've moved on from.. Your Vista shodul be 'plug n play' adn should configure the router for you. obviously that bit isn't so slick on yours.

Let me know how you get on..

Printer and Modem


are you using a USB cable to connect your modem ? Are you using a USB cable to connect your printer ? If you are using a USB cable to connect your modem, try using an ethernet cable and your LAN card instead. It will work better and you won't need modem drivers to make it work. You do however have to have a LAN card or built-in LAN adapter. As long as you have one of those 2, the best way to hook up your modem would be by using the ethernet jack on the modem straight into your LAN card/adapter. If you are not using USB to connect your modem then please send me your printer model and how it's hooked up and I will help you figure it out. Hope this helps.
