check if your phone line is working (plug a phone to the same cable instead of modem)
be sure you are connecting to LINE plug on the modem, not the PHONE
if you have both these sockets connect a phone to PHONE plug to check if it works
[wall socket]----cable------[LINE socket on Sport.]----[PHONE socket]----cable---[usual phone]

Does it work part of the time or now it doesn't work at all?

If not at all then since it is only a year old then contact USR for warranty replacement, when you call them they will have you run a diagnostic on it before they give you a Return number. They are very good with their products under warranty, usally about a week turn around time.

¿Have you had a lightning storm or something alike? It's a (unfortunately) VERY common failure which apperas after a storm: if a lightning falls (or travels) on the nearby, it can burn input circuits of the modem. Results: modem is died for ever never.
