updated my router firmware then couldn't get online. Rourter was set up again and still no go. Resorted to hooking up via USB and got online. The only thing I noticed different when I restart my computer is at the end of the startup run there is a line that wasn't there before. The line reads:
c:\>rem-By Windows 98 Network-c:\Windows\net start

What router, firmware version, modem, service, etc do you have?

If your modem is indeed usb that line is probably what initilizes it.

Dlink, v1.40, Ambit, RoadRunner. I did get it working though, forgot one little thing in router setup.
RoadRunner recalled a certain version of new Ambit modems but mine wasn't one of them, though it is a new Ambit modem. My local cable store has, as of yesterday, 30 cases of new Ambit modems to be returned to Ambit.
I was going to get a Toshiba PCX2500 or PCX2600 from them but they were out of all modems because of the recall.
Do you know anything about Ambit or Toshiba modems?
I think the Toshiba's are probably better but don't know. Was also thing of getting a Dlink DCM202 modem. The Dlink has some settings plus TurboDox software that Dlink says boost download up to 20%?
