Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Modem quit working.

\015 I purchased a Motorola High Speed DSL Modem, Model #2210-02 modem on 9/17/08 from Best Buy at the suggestion of ATT. It was installed 2/13/09. This is a home computer, the modem was never misused, but it "died" last week. When I contacted ATT tech support, they had me remove it from the computer and plug it into another socket. Still dead. Why would that happen? Can anything be done to revive it? There was absolutely no warning, sputtering, nothing. One day it worked fine the next day nada. Any advice/suggestions would be sincerely appreciated. Kat Hartman \015\[email protected]\015

Answers :

Based on this, it could be a problem with the power adapter or may something inside broke for it not to turn on.

I suggest that if the device is still under warratny have have it replace. But if not get a new modem, this would be the best option here.

Hi I need help with my modem settings. It is siemens speedstream 4200. I am told in forums I need to open ports to solve my problems.. but cannot successfully do it. PS3 will only give a NAT3 connection (which means there is incorrect connection to router/modem) I am told to open ports (port forwarding?) "bridge" the modem, assign PS3 a static IP address inside home network, place PS3 into DMZ... none of my attempts to do this have worked... but I am trying to learn as I go. Not fun.


Do you have the device hooke up directly to the speadstream 4200? As the Speedstream 4200 is a modem most companies already have this device in bridged mode because it is largely understood that if this device enters a home it will be shared. That be ... PC Desktops

Problems There a are quite a few - sometimes the "shift" key doesn't work. Sometimes the computer makes a loud beep when it doesn't want to load the internet. Most of the time, the only way to get the internet to work is to turn the wireless off and disconect from the network, then turn it back on and tell it to reconnect. The most annoying problem is that at least 1x a week the internet locks up and shuts down, and Word, Power Point, or Excell regurally say "not responding." I've spent the last
