Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

We re booted the computer and have to use a usb

\015 We rebooted the computer and have to use a usb connection for the internet instead of the phone jack to our cable modemand now magic jack has been working!\015

Answers :

Not sure what the problem is, but from what i am reading i am suprised that anything worked at all. A modem jack in your computer is for telephone lines, and the cable modem needs a cat 5 network cable as well as a ethernet card attatched to your computer. ethernet card in your computer cat5 cable runs from the card to the cable modem. Magic jack requires a usb connection as well as a broadband connection to work.
