Replace the cord or you may have a faulty nic card. this seems to happen to me quite a bit since I am in the IT industry. If your nic is "onboard" the mainboard, they are prone to fail or stall out without warning or reason.

Here is a good test. Unplug the computer (yes phsically unplug it, then press and hold power button for 10 seconds. This discharges all the capacitors on the mainboard, which seems to fix alot of problems I come across with hardware, especially nic cards or onboard nics.

Now turn it back on. You could be jacked in to a faulty port on whatever the other end is plugging into as well. It's hard to tell with the limited info you posted.

Whenever I plug my ethernet cord into the modem and into my computer the internet still doesn't work


you might wanna check if the ethernet cord that you are using is working properly Internet light as well should be lit up on the RCA modem box.

I am wanting to have internet on my desk top and my lab top through the same modem, i have a usb for the lap top but it wont connect it says error 815


You need to make sure you have the usb drivers that go with that modem installed on the lap top. I think you can get them from the manufacturers web site if you don't have the disk that has them.

Good Luck

The PC/ACTIVITY my Motorola modem isn't on... i don't know what to do.


if all of the other lights on the modem are lit, except pc activity, that means the modem isnt communicating with the computer. 3 things can cause this - modem could be bad, ethernet cord could be bad, or the NIC card(the card in the cpu that houses the ethernet port) is bad. Most of the time its the ethernet cord or the NIC card in my experience. Dont fret, both of those are relatively cheap fixes.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

How To: USB hookup for computer while having ethernet hookup to Xbox 360.


USB to PC is fine, make sure you have the original installation disk for it. Then you can connect the Xbox via network cable. There shouldn't be any problem as your modem can take 2 connections by the sound of it.

Inability to connect to Internet


The easiest solution would be to use an ethernet connection. A second problem is probably on most cable modems you can either use a USB connection OR an ethernet connection you cannoot use both at the same time.

Ethernet Port seems to be a failure, but the USB works fine


I managed to fix the problem manually using a computer kit I had.
The problem was the Ethernet port on the modem was messed up
you should check if the small wires are on the back are all facing towards the top if not you should try to fix its actually pretty easy
no need to pay for a repair :D

Modem connection


Your modem should have a RJ11 (phone) jack and a RJ45 (ethernet) jack. Phone line-in to modem RJ11. Ethernet cable from RJ45 to modem to router; maybe labeled WAN or modem port . Ethernet from any of the switch ports (or the only one avail, depending on your model) to you pc if it has a ethernet card in it. After that it's all up to the configuration.
