Well it might be dead - try these two steps:

1. Unplug the modem and leave it unplugged for at least a minute, then plug it back in.
2. If that does no good, try the RESET button on the back, using a paper clip or pen point. The reset will probably only work while the lights are still on - so try to press in the button pretty quick.

Thanks - Sam

I have the Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem, trouble using software

You may check the following:

1. Make sure to plug the power cube into a power strip or wall outlet and then plug the power cube's other end into the modem's power (PWR) jack.

2. You should only use the power cube with the Zoom X6. Other power cubes may damage your hardware.

3. Try another wall outlet.

4. Reset the modem. Use a paper clip and insert it into the RESET pinhole in the modem's back panel and press it 3 times. Then turn off the modem for a minute and turn it back on. Check if the power light will turn solid green.

5. Possible defective modem.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Zoom X5 ADSL light not blinking

May be your ADSL modem has clapped out it sounds like it. You say you can connect via the PC modem that means the dialup is working......I imagine you have tried the ID logon and password for the ADSL also and it still wont connect. Try support at your ISP and if it still dont connect then it must be had it, you will need to buy another.
