Scaleo 600 how can i connect to internet from modem?


Plug your modem up to your phone line & plug in the power cord. If you are using an ethernet cable its should plug into the modem and into your computer. If you are connecting wirelessly, make sure you card has a wireless network card or that you have a wireless adapter. If it still doesn't work you may have to call you internet provider to make sure the modem settings correct.

I'm having trouble connecting my emachine to a cable modem.


Turn off the computer before you begin making connections. Make sure the cable modem is up and running with your service before you attempt to make the computer connection.

  • 2 Connect the coaxial cable from the wall outlet into the back of the cable modem where it is marked "Cable" and has the male coaxial connection. Use an extension coaxial cable if necessary to reach the modem.
  • 3 Connect the CAT 5 networking cable from the cable modem where it is marked "PC" (or something similar) and connect the other end into the back of your computer where the networking card is. These connections are RJ-45 connections that look like oversized telephone jacks. If you also have telephone service through your cable provider, you will want to connect the telephone line into the port on the back of the cable modem marked "Telephone."
  • 4 Connect the power cord into the back of the cable modem and plug it into a power strip with power surge protection. The modem should power on by itself once it is plugged in. It will cycle through a power on self test and then make the connection to your cable Internet provider. Once the lights indicating power and cable are green, you are ready for Step 5. It could take several minutes for the modem to connect to your service provider.
  • 5 Turn on the computer and test out your Internet connection. Should your computer still have a problem connecting to the web you may need to reset your cable modem. You will find a small recessed button the size of the head of a ballpoint pen either on the back or front of the modem. This button will be marked "Reset." Pushing it once will allow the modem to reboot and reset all its connections. Turn off the computer before resetting the modem to allow the computer to flush all the networking connections out of its memory as well.


  • If the power goes out and your connection is not restored when it comes back on, always reboot the devices in this order: cable modem first, computer second. Keep the cable modem where it can get proper ventilation. Call your cable Internet provider if you get frequent interruptions to your cable Internet service and rebooting the modem does not solve the problem.

    HOW DO U CONNECT A NOTEBOOK TO COMPUTER WIRE INTERNT?


    There is an ethernet port on the notebook. All you need is an ethernet cable that goes from your ISP modem to your notebook. On some ISP's (internet Service Provider) it's possible that it does not give you internet access. What you may have to do is disconnect the power cord from the modem wait 5 to 10 seconds and then reconnect the power cord.

    Cant access internet (e-mails), possible dns error,and Domain Name Server may be down. Pinged remote host but no response


    Sounds like either a cable has come unplugged/broken, the router/modem is on its way out, or your DNS cache needs to be cleared.
    In this order:
    Unplug the modem and/or router power cords. While unplugged, make sure the cat5 cables are connected securely(if using wired net).
    Wait about 30 seconds to a minute, then plug the modem and/or router back in.

    Test your internet connection.

    If there still no connection to the internet, Click Ctar>Run, type in cmd, hit enter. This opens the command prompt.
    On the black screen, type in ipconfig/flushdns
    Close the command prompt, and re-test your internet connection.

    If it still fails, verify with your ISP that your internet connection is active, and try a different router and/or modem.

    Internet and modem light won't light up


    Try disconnecting the power from the cable modem - wait about 10 seconds then reconnect the power. It may take a few minutes to reconnect depending on your provider but sometimes cable modems get "frozen" and need to be power cycled.

    If you are using a motorola surfboard modem make sure that you do not press the button on the top of the modem whn you are reconnecting the power cord because it is designed to turn off the internet connection for security purposes.

    Im not able to connect to get the belkin router to connect to the internet


    Make sure that the router is connected to the cable modem. The network cable from the modem goes into the Internet or WAN port of the router. Then your cable from the Ethernet port onyour computer goes into any of the ports labled 1,2,3,or 4.
    after you are sure that the connections are right. Take the power cords off of the cable modem and the router. Wait 30 seconds, then plug in the cable modem in first, wait till the light are on the modem. Then plug in the power to your router. Restart your computer and you should be able to get on line.

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe
