WPA2 hack: How secure is your Wi-Fi?
I am having problems with my internal modem. It has run like a sweetie up to now so I can't understand what went wrong.
I can't connect to the net at all with it.
When I open the Access Runner Control Panel I get the message "Attempting to activate Line."
I have uninstalled the modem in Control Panel/Add or Remove, and have uninstalled\reinstalled and upgraded/rolled back the drivers to no avail. I can't think of what to try next. It has been running perfectly without any trouble for months.
Any replies gratefuly received
I used one of these for a couple of years(only changed to router/modem as it refused to install into linux)I found that when it refused to connect it was sometiimes possible to get it going by stop/restart the connection.It was also continually disconnecting/reconnecting,this turned out to be caused by Nero's InCD.If it is refusing to connect,check you have set VCI/VPI correctly.They should be 0,38(for UK)as the driver I used always set these to 0,35.If these suggestions don't get your modem going(especially after reinstalling the AccessRunner software)then I'm out of further ideas. ;-)
When it is in the state "Line Dosn. Attempting to Activate Line" it doesn't even have an opening to connect to my ISP, It is completely shut off!
I have tried a different combination of VCI/VPI settings, Modulation, Encapsulation modes etc etc, and it has made no difference. I have never had a moment's trouble with it in the past year. I think the fault must be in the registry. I have come to the conclusion that only a format/reinstall will cure it. Thank goodness I have the Alcatel 330 Frog as a backup!
Pappyon, all I can add is that for me it doesn't connect instantly - it takes a couple of minutes of clicking and showing the "attempting to activate line" before kicking in. I then start Internet Explorer separately and it then connects to my isp (Pipex).
Might be worth checking with your ISP and with BT if the line is OK ...?
I am pleased to tell you that the problem has been resolved. There was a conflict between Conexant Access Runner PCI and my 330 Alcatel Speedtouch external.
When I unplugged and uninstalled the Speedtouch,the Conexant was perfectly OK.
I would add that I had run the two of them concurrently prior to this, without any trouble whatsoever.
I thank you once again for you interest and assistance.
