If U R using windows, U may try uninstall the software for it via cp - add/remove and uninstalling it via the cp - system - hardware . Leave the hardware connected and reboot. When the system detects it use the cd to load the driver only. Let windows manage it. Make sure that the driver (should say so on the cd) is for the os U R using.

Hi tigerluu;
before it was working; do you know if the modem is set to PPPoE? you can call your ISP for assistance in accessing your modem page and enter the username and password they provided to you.

thanks

If i buy a dell inspiron 580 that does not have a modem, can i still plug it into the dsl router and get internet okay?


Yes, you do not need a modem. You connect a LAN cable from the computer to the DSL modem to access your Internet Service Provider.

Troubleshooting DSL Modems


Ever look at your DSL Modem and wonder what all those lights mean? Why do some flash, while others remain solid? What if your lights are different colors? How do you tell if your DSL Modem is working correctly?<br /> <br /> Each light on your DSL Modem represents a function. The light is an indication of whether that function is working properly. Sometimes the placement and title of each function can vary by modem manufacturer, but they are pretty standard in interpetation. If you look closely your modem, you might find that each function is labeled in small print to help identify them.<br /> <br /> A standard DSL Modem has a light for power, internet, ethernet, link and wireless connection. A healthy DSL Modem will have a steady green light that does not blink or flutter for all features other than internet, ethernet and wireless. A flashing or fluttering light indicates movement and useage. When you are connected to your DSL Modem wireless, the light for this feature will blink indicating a connection and/or active useage. If the internet connection is working properly the color of the light will be green. If the connection is working but experincing a problem the light can turn to yellow or orange. If the connection fails, the light on the DSL Modem can be red or absent depending on the problem causing the trouble. If your service is turned off by the provider, more than likely the light will be "off".<br /> <br /> If your lights turn a different color, are absent or your internet connection fails try power cycling your modem before reporting the trouble to your provider. Power cycling helps the DSL Modem to reset its connection and repair your internet services.<br /> <br /> If you are using a DSL Modem alone to connect to the internet (no additional router) you can power cycle it by first turning off your computer and then unplug the modem itself from the power source at the wall. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then plug it back into the power source and wait for the warm up to finish before rebooting the pc.<br /> <br /> The DSL Modem should go through the normal warm up procedures of blinking lights, making them all stable and solid green ect. You will know when its finished warming up when the features are set at solid green (other than eithernet, internet and wireless connection as explained above). When the modem finished the warm up, reboot your computer and check your internet connection.<br /> <br /> Power cycling your DSL Modem can help keep your connection healthy and running at optimal speeds.<br />

Will my modem help me connect to internet on my dsi because i have one and i would like to know if i can connect to the internet on my dsi with it


That depends mainly on your modem. If you plug a DSL from the you DSL on the wall to your modem (which, hopefully, is able to use DSL, not Cable), then you can connect it to your computer (which should usually be using Ethernet).

To configure the modem You will need to use the cd provided.

  5. Default username and password is:
  6. User-name: admin
  7. Password: admin
  8. Use the quick setup wizard.
  9. It will be more easy for you to configure it.
  10. Be sure to have the username and password from the ISP for the internet access, you may need to reconfigure it from start. or if you may need to reset the modem

Cannot connect to internet. I had internet connection over telephone modem before Hard drive crashed. I replaced HD and could not connect to internet. Dell was no help at all. I signed up for Verizon DSL...


I bet you are using the phone modem that canme in your machine. You need to connect the Network card ( Ethernet Card) and make sure the drivers are working. Find it is System, Hardware, device manager, look for ethernet.
Connection icon and see if the netcard driver is installed.Connect the cat5 cable that was sent to you with the DSL modem box. It chould be a yellow cable... It only fits one way and in a maked plug on the DSL modem and into the network card in the computer. Everything there after should go automatically.

I cannot connet to the internet have wrt100


Try to reset your router first by Pressing the reset button on the back for about 15 seconds let go then pull out the power. After that plug the power back in then try to set it up according to the directions at the link below. If after the reset you are still not able to access the 192.168.1.1 Turn off the modem first then turn off and on the router and restart your computer but leave the modem off. If youa re able to access the router page. Chagne the local or router IP on the setup page as your modem might be on the same IP. this is only applicable if you are on DSL. If on cable you just have to reset and follow the directions at the link below for Cable.

CABLE

We recently got high speed internet from Qwest. It will not work. It keeps saying that the can't "ping" it. All light are green; power DSL, and the Ethernet. The internet is not. I have...


The DSL router/modem will receive an address from your ISP (Qwest) and will assign an address to the connected PC.

There should be a cable that goes from your DSL modem to your PC. It'll either be a USB cable (flat rectangular plug on the PC end), or a RJ45 (looks like a wider telephone plug).

If there is neither connection between the DSL modem and your PC, then the PC can't "talk" to the DSL modem, so it's not getting an address from the DSL modem.

There are sometimes issues with the PPPOE. the DSL provider should be able to resolve this.

Actually, you cannot send faxes through a DSL modem. You have to use a phone line or send it through the internet (not directly through the modem), at least from what I know...
