If the modem/router is rented from your service provider, I'd suggest contacting them to request a replacement. If you've purchased it yourself, check to see if it's still under warranty. Judging from the user manual, it seems it would have come with a 1 year warranty. If you're still in that time frame, contact the manufacturer for information on how to get it replaced. If you own the modem outright and it's out of warranty, you may be looking at having to purchase a replacement. The steps you've already tried (rebooting, resetting to factory settings, completing the setup process) are about all you can do with these home-use routers. There's no advanced "back door" to really poke around and see what could be wrong.

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

SOURCE: Can't get Trendnet TEW-432 router to connect to internet with motorola modem

I had this same problem. I was going to go ahead and call ATT and ask them to put my modem into bridge mode, but I messed around a bit more....

I went ahead and turn on PPPoE...tried to run the set up again. Well it worked. Not the internet connection is working through the modem. For some reason, the setup changed PPPoE back to DHCP Client, but it's working now. Give this a shot before calling ATT if you like. Good luck.

Your setup looks correct to me. It might very well be that your ISP is blocking port 80. Go here and check from your server if port 80 is accessible.

If you are the only one that wants to connect to you server, you can simply choose another port to use, i.e. www.myserver.com:801. Set port forwarding form port 80 to 801 in your router.
TCP&UDP - from 801 - to 80 - [serverIP] - [Webserver]

The better way is to use a service like DynDNS.com or No-IP.com. You can register a DNS name (like myserver.dyn.com), which redirects to your public IP. The trick is to update your IP address, so even if you have a dynamic IP assigned from your ISP, the redirect will point always to your server. Most routers have the ability to set up with DynDNS, so the process runs in the background and you don't have to update manually - check your router manual.

The second part of this beauty is the redirect to a different port. So even if your port 80 (and 25 for that matter) are blocked, you don't have to have an arbitrary number in your URL (http;//myserver.com:801). You can find more detailed information here.

For a quick check, change your webserver to run on port 801, enter the redirect in your router and see if you can get to your server from the outside (internet). If you still can't access the webserver, the problem is not a blocked port.

Hope this helps, but if you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help you figuring this out.

Made unsuccessful attempts to connect to the Internet using the dial-up modem. The internal modem came installed on my original PC and is a Smart Link 56k Modem. What do I do?


Can we have more information about the problem you have when attempting to connect ? The error code and message would me very useful in your case.

For example :
1. If it says the modem is already in use, go to "Network connections" or "Network and sharing center" and delete all existing dial-up connections, then create a new one based on the settings your internet provider gave you.

2. It might be a problem with the login and password. Write both in Notepad on the computer, then copy and paste the information in the required fields in the connection window.

3. It might also be a problem on the telephone line. Try another computer with dial-up modem known to work properly. If the problem repeats on that computer, the problem is on the telephone line. You will need to contact your provider to fix the problem.

I just put in a new 56k internal modem and its working but I can only connect at 33.1 kbps


It probably is not your modem at all. Usually its limited by the computer or ISP you are connecting to, If possible i would try changing the # that you are dialing into and see if you connect at a faster speed. One thing to check is to go to device manager and click on properties on the modem and make sure it is set to max 56K Hope this helps you.

My 2003 server sees the modem v.92 fax, but i can not seem to use it. I tryed to reset it, powered off and back on, reinitialized it but nothing seems to work.


A lightning strike to the phone line can kill the line interface while the computer interface is still ok. This would produce the symptoms you describe. If you can open the modem, look around the phone line connector for burnt components or burning on the board.

This might also stop the phone line from working when the modem is connected, ie another phone on the same line will produce no dial tone with themodem connected.

If this is the case a new modem will be the cheapest way out of this.

1. Power off the modem. 2.Restart your computer. Allow the system to stabilise and switch on the modem after about 10mins. Check for connection. If nothing happened after all this, then go to Device Manager and scroll down to Modem. Click the plus sign and lookup for that particular make. It may be disabled. If disabled, simply right click and select Enable and wait for about 5mins to login. Good luck

You might have your internal modem set to the same com port as your com ports that are on your motherboard. You can try to go into BIOS and disable all com ports OR you can try to configure your internal modem in windows to use com 3 or com 4. Remember, that if your computer does have com ports in the back, then is is probably set to the same address as your internal modem so something needs to be moved.
