Thread: help no internet

  1. #11
    Normally the Internet light would be red when the modem cannot connect
    to your provider. You could very well have a bad modem, or a bad phone
    line. From what you have posted, I don't think the problem is with your
    computer. The modem can and will sync up and be connected to the
    Internet without a computer even connected to it.

    Good luck with it!

    The red light is on the part that says internet.

    I think you may want to consider buying a Broadband Router. The router can do the DSL Connection for you, and it also acts as a firewall.

    Good luck.

    Good point.

    If she has AT&T DSL, most of their 2Wire brand modems have a built in
    NAT firewall and a 4 port router.

    ATT huh, had a problem one week where I had no service for 4 days in the same week. Turns out my problem was their packet. I had to wait 3 days, from a Friday to Monday for someone to get into their central facility to plug me into a different packet. What really pissed me off was their central facility where my problem lay was 2 doors down the street from my building.

    I called Roadrunner and have had way better service since then.

    Sounds like a problem modem, so you may be buying a new modem.

    I was still in safe mode.
    The new modem they "overnighted" on Friday arrived yesterday. I put it in and still the same, in fact I think it is worse. I am at work today so I'm stealilng a few minutes. I called the prof but it's fall break this week so I don't know what will happen. I have a raging uti so I'm hoping a dr note from that might also help the situation with the prof.
    I couldn't go to the library bc of obligations with my kids on Saturday.

    My computer is going to the dr this weekend (my dad) so maybe I'll figure out wtf happened. Four hour drive to fix a computer. I must really be more dependent on it than I thought.
    Thanks for everyone's help.

    Busted. I'm not computer savvy at all and it drives me crazy because I am on it a lot. You would think the more you're on a computer the more you would know, but that stuff is so technical and vague to me. Hope your dad can get it fixed for ya, maybe then you can access those sites you say you miss so much. Ha.

    Thanks everyone. Seems to be an improperly installed toolbar or something like that. DSL is still kicking me off from time to time. I blame that on ATT sucking but at least I can get online now.
