If there is no network or internet activities it means either network is down from ISP, or there is a phone line cable or broadband filter problem, or broadband settings on modem are lost and must be reinstalled.

I have a SB5101 modem, I rebot the modem and now it doesn't work , just the power light and the pc/activity(ambar) are working what i should do?


Try this unscrew the cable from the back rub your finger over the center and the side of the cable.Unplug the modem for 20 seconds plug the modem back in and immediately put the cable back in.
I can explain how this works but would take to long.

PC link light is off while Internet and cable activity lights' are solid. Can not connect to the internet. Can it be fixed? If so, how?


The PC link light is your indicator if there is a device connected to the modem through the ethernet port. If its off, then you may need to check the connection once again whether it be a PC connected hardwired to the modem or a router. Replacing the ethernet cable can also help because it might also be a defective ethernet cable. As long as the internet and cable activity lights are both solid, its ok because that means your modem is receiving the signal from your provider.

The activity light is off


If your activity light is not on that usually indicates the connection to your pc isn't working. Have you checked your ethernet cable to make sure it's plugged in firmly? Also, if you're using ethernet, you may want to try reseating the network card. If you're connected to a router try bypassing it and connecting directly to the modem.

Hope this helps!
