  • If newly installed, try uninstalling and reinstalling the device.
  • Once installed correctly, this error is unusual and may mean the device is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • Some modems must be installed in a very precise order as dictated by the manufacturer. Be certain to closely follow the installation instructions. Consult the manufacturer's web site for a copy of the instructions or for an updated driver.
Good luck!!!!!!!!!

I am trying to reconnect to the internet I put a new modem in for my internet service trying to connect my router to my ps3 and it won't let me can you please tell me what i have to do. Thank You

Hi there,
I see that you have replaced you modem. Have you tried connecting your pc directly to the modem? If you do not have any internet connection when connected directly to the modem, you have to call your Internet Service Provider to setup your new modem. If you can access the internet using your new modem then there is a problem with the router. You have to re-setup your router to make it work.

My router internet LED is not working plz tell me troubleshoot

Make sure your ethernet cable connecting from the router is properly connected from your modem. If it still not showing any progress, try to reset the router by pressing and holding the reset hole at the back of the router until it restarts itself; then check again.

If it still wont light up the internet led on the router, make sure your modem has connectivity; try plugging in your computer directly to the modem to verify this. If all has been done and still the router does not give you a connection, then I hope your router is still under warranty to have it repaired for free or even replaced for a new one. If its no longer, then the router might have been damaged especially if it was raining hard on your area with occassional lightnings lately.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The tech tells me that something is blocking my firewall. I cannot connect to the internet. I have a Acer Aspire connected through Net Gear router. He wanted to charge me 130.00 to tell me how to unblock...

Try resetting the router by unplugging it from the outlet and from the modem.Also reset the modem by unplugging it for a few minutes also.After you do that it may take several attempts for it to reconnect with your laptop.
