Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

This was bought at an estate sale and I'm trying to find out where to connect the ethernet cable to set her up on qwest home internet. Either I'm nuts or the ethernet cable included with the set up instructions from qwest doesn't fit into the 2 lines available on the rear of the machine. Thank you.

The two lines in the back, if they are too small for the ethernet cable, are telephone jacks for a phone modem. look and see if there is a "line in" and "line out" labeled, or a picture of a telephone next to one of the jacks- if so, then this is a phone modem card, and not an ethernet card. ethernet cards ONLY have one jack.

Just got a qwest pk5000z when plugged in power light stays solid green, dsl light stays solid green, then I receive Internet connection.. After about 30 seconds it resets and starts the whole process over....


Are you using the RJ45 ended Ethernet cable?
I've been battling an issue where an Ethernet cable plugged in caused the PK5000Z to reboot approximately every 120-300 seconds (2-5 minutes).
Switching to just the wireless and not having any Ethernet cables plugged in resolved the issue.
Unfortunately this won't work for me since I only use the modem as my gateway to the internet and actually have an Astaro Secure Gateway Firewall that connect to the modem via Ethernet. I'll be contacting their technical support again tomorrow as I've had 3 modems RMA'd and not a single person there at Century Link could figure out what to try except to keep RMAing them.
So anyone else hitting this issue, try using just the wireless instead of the Ethernet 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.

Well, the connection may come from the same company but the way you connect is probably completely different. First, we have to clarify a couple of things. Do you connect wirelessly or through an ethernet cable (hardwire)? Next, if wireless, do you have a wireless router at home? It's okay to say who your internet service provider (ISP) is. Sometimes, that will also give us a hint about how the connection is supposed to be set up. For example, Comcast offers wireless routers with their service that don't need to be run through a manual configuration. Qwest, on the other hand, has a wireless "bridge" connected to their DSL modems that needs to have settings plugged in to work.

Just let us know a little more and we'll be happy to help.
