  1. Ok, last night i phoned my ISP and they said that they will swtch my internet back on in 10mins, so i waited, but on my modem the only lights that are flashing are Enet (it is connected to my ethernet port on my computer) and D/S.

    My internet has been off for a few months but i remember that the lights which should be on are ENET, SYNC, RDY and D/S i think.

    I have a suspision that my modem may have somthing wrong with it, any ideas guys? or is it just my ISP taking their time in switching me back on.

    I also tried connecting to Xbox Live but it would not.

    When your internet is cut off is it supposed to be just ENET and D/S lights flashing?

    Phone you isp back and tell them you`re not happy.

    Who is you isp? It wouldn`t happen to be NTL would it?

    Lol. I thought so.

    Sound like you need an engineer to come out.

    Go and make yourself a member of the NTL:HELL forums.

    There are lots of NTL staff who would be able to help you. NTL`s customer services are legendary when it comes to messing people about.

    I know this because I too have NTL. I was having loads of problems with billing. The above website helped me get it sorted out.

    Regards Howard :)

    Just give them time. Someone will get back to you.

    I don`t know if your modem is broken, but obviously something`s not right.
