Qwest DSL Modem Ethernet connection not working, Wireless is fine
Posted on 2007-10-03
I have Qwest DSL with a Qwest Modem 2Wire. When I connect my laptop using wireless it works great. When I plug the ethernet cable in to the laptop it just says acquiring network address and never does anything. I did the repair it now and that didn't work. I also tried to reset the modem and that didn't work. I called qwest and the guy didn't know what the problem was he had me go to the command prompt and ping the address and that didn't work. All lights on the modem are green Power steady, Ethernet steady with flashing some times, DSL steady, Internet Steady Green. The wirless connection says acquiring network address for two seconds and then connects. I am trying to use the hard line becaue it is 100 mbps instead of 56 with wireless. I tried the connection wizard in windows to give it one more go and it says everything is connected fine and if I still can't use the net then do these steps which I did. Power off the dsl, upglug and then re-plug the modem line, Still no go. Any help would be great. Thanks.
