Okay, I have a Broadband connection which has been working fine for a couple of years now. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, I cannot connect to the Internet. I have updated the drivers, uninstalled and re-installed the software/drivers etc. Checked and re-checked the settings, all to no avail. The ADSL light flashes continually, although the USB light stays constant. I have used another USB Modem on the same machine with the same result, and on another machine in the house the modem works fine, and I can connect. All this points to a problem with the computer rather than the modem or line. anyone got any ideas how I could solve this infuriating problem?
Have you tried swopping modems on the PC that works? to see if the modems themselves work,i dont know what modems you have but on mine the power and dsl light dont flash they are on all the time the only one that flashes is the data light.
Yep, I tried it earlier, no luck! I think I've tried about everything now, I'm at a complete loss!! ACOLYTE: - I think I've established that the problem is not with the modem. I'm hoping someone can point me in the direction of a system settings fix. Incidentally, even "system restore" didn't work!! (?)
If the ADSL light is flashing all the time then i would say its a line problem or at least the signal is not strong enough depends where the pc that can connect is and if its on the main line or an extension.
