Hi there, I am having troubles with connecting to the internet. There is supposed to be a green light on the back of the computer that is supposed to be lit but it currently isn't. On the task bar, there is an icon that says there is "Limited or No Connectivity". When I open the "Network Connections" there are 2 icons: Local Connection and Local Connection 2. Local connection is the one that is having limited or no connectivity and that is the one I normally use. I didn't discover Local Connection 2 until today when I plugged the USB cable from the modem to my computer. If someone could take a look at this much would be appreciated.

I would also like to state that yesterday I left the computer on Standby for approx. 7 hours.

So if I understand this correctly, you use a USB cable to connect your computer to your modem instead of a ethernet cable.

Have you tried to reboot your modem?

Oh and welcome to Geeks-To-Go :)

Hi Gravity Gripp. Yes you are correct, I am using a usb cable to connect my computer to the modem. There is a little button on my modem that says "reset" on it and I pressed it but that still didn't fix the problem.

Have you installed the driver for the usb network adapter you are using? The adapter should have came with a disk that contains the driver.

Sorry for the late reply. But it seems that the green light at the back of the computer is on now :) Thank you for the help.
