My modem disappeared off my laptop, how do I get it back?

Last night I used the modem to connect to the internet and it worked fine. This morning there is no longer a modem on my computer. It does not even exist in the system hardware profile any more. It just vanished. Is there a way to make the computer know it is still there?

Sounds like your comp did its own system restore on you and the file needed to keep parameters of modem connection disapeared
you need to go into control panel network set up wizard follow instructions this should set your network back up

Lenovo G550 running Windows 7 won't connect to internet. "Default gateway is not available" message displays. I have 4 Vista computers using wireless connections all functioning fine, but this...


Hello
Wow youve done almost everything here.How about the firewall? is it blocking any connections?

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

Set all your machines to the same network.Either home or public.I do know this has been a win 7 problem.

Dial-up Internet Help


please forgive short answers or bad typing i broke my wrist in an auto accident last night. there are modems with call waiting. if yours has call waiting go into your help file and it should tll you how. if your modem doesn't have call waiting or you don't have it on your phone then you'll need a different modem and/or will have to add call waiting to your phone line. however, if you add this and/or set it up it will corrupt any downloads happening when a call comes in. most people usually end up turning call waiting off eventually.

Acer aspire 7520 cant connect to LAN ( local only)


Hardwired to modem or router?
Router = check connection to router
(had a router die on me last fall - not AC supply)
IP should be 192.168.1.xx or 192.168.2.xx
(is standard)
Reset Router = reset hole on back - hold for 10 sec
Modem= same directions as router
(most modems work like single port routers)
(do reset of cable modem, I've had that prob too)
Using PPOE connection = check log on info
Took most of my home network apart to find it was the modem causing the problem - should've started there.

The internet was working, we turned it off because we were told to by itunes, as we were installing itunes for a new ipod. We turned it on again and no internet working, and the signal sign on the laptop...


The firewall is blocking the connection. Turn off all computers. Turn off router and modem. In this order, turn them all back on. First modem, wait one minute. Next router, wait one minute. Last, all computers. You should have connection now.

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).
