Question about NexxTech NSMODX2

1 Answer

Modem issue I bought a pc a few years ago and the modem worked fine. One day it eventually went out and I replaced it with an external usb modem. Couple of months later it began the same problem as the original: no dialtone; despite there being one. Replaced that modem with another and less than a month it developed the same issue. GOT ANOTHER ONE and three days later same thing. I have Windows XP w/ svc pack 2, the current modem is a Nexxtech USB external data/fax modem model NSMODX2. I have removed all other modems in the system. Everytime the modem fails and I replace it it connnects fine. Is there a possibility my motherboard is faulty?

A mother board is a big thing to replace. you may want to just buy another computer if thats the case. it may also be the way it hooks up. is it a card. if it's a card thta slot maybe shorting it out. if so try a diffrent slot. my best advice is move away from dial up all together.

I have a 320gb toshiba external hard drive, i've been using it around 3 years without any trouble. A few days ago i lost the cable connecting it to the PC. I bought a few cables but no use. Doesn't...


Hi there,

This is because there is a connection problem between the external drive and the computer. If you have changed cables to no avail, you can open the casing of the external drive where you will find the hard disk inside. Unplug the two cables connected to the harddisk and replug it after a minute. Then try again. If it still does not work, then you need to buy just a usb enclosure and plug the harddisk there to be able to use it again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

External Nortel Modem won't connect


DSL uses one wire pair since it runs off a POTS line (plain old telephone service).

The Nortel modems are very old - they were some of the first DSL systems that came out almost 15 years ago. They were designed to work with their own proprietary Nortel back-end (DSLAM) equipment. Since they use proprietary and now way outdated transmission protocols, they will not work with modern DSL connections since they do not support the standard DSL protocols. Unless there was somekind of firmware upgrade I wasn't aware of, its pretty much junk.

Nortel went bankrupt a couple of years ago. I used to work for them and some of the guys who designed their DSL modems worked a few cubicles away from me. I had a couple of them in the early days (we got free DSL as beta testers back in the mid-90's) - the modems are useless now, but I found the power supply worked well with my cordless drill charger.

USB DEvice not recognized


My apologies faizakhatib. I see that you did, indeed, provide the make and model of you laptop. Thank you for that.

Some additional suggestions:
(A) Please, make sure that your laptop's A/C adapter is plugged in while trouble-shooting this issue. We don't want to complicate the matter w/ a possible low-power issue.

(B) Worse case, your laptop's USB interface may have failed (hardware failure). To repair this would necessitate replacing your motherboard. You can work around this issue, however, by using a laptop PC card w/ USB ports.

Please, get back to us w/ your answers and we'll work w/ you to diagnose this issue.

Thank you,
BJ

Replace both the main control board and the wax motor. This sounds like a computer chip malfunction

As far as the squeak, make sure it is not the bearing located at the back of the tub under the large pulley.
