Causes for Frequent Resetting of Motorola® Modems
Get to know more about frequent resetting issues in Motorola modems.
The modem is a necessary device used to connect Internet in computer. The term modem is derived from modulation and demodulation. Modem modulates analog signals to encode digital information and demodulate such signal to decode the transmitted information. Motorola is a famous modem manufacturer. The most commonly used models in Motorola modems are Motorola SBG1000, Motorola SBV5120, and Motorola SB5100 etc. Motorola offers excellent range and bandwidth, DOCSIS 1.0 compliant, wired, and wireless, USB, and phone-line access, includes print server etc. The package contains Modem, connecting devices and software CD. The CD contains the driver software and necessary applications for using the device.
Here we are going to discuss about the common causes due to which the Motorola modem keeps resetting frequently, and possible ways to fix the issues.
- Software conflicts
- Hardware malfunctioning
- OS file corruption
Sometimes modem software conflicts might be occurring due to the installation of third party software. It is better to keep a back up of Operating System before any changes. So any of the applications found not working after a change you can easily undo the change by restoring. Otherwise you have to find out the conflicting software and remove it completely from your computer. Restart the computer after removing the program for the new settings to take effect. If the issue is still there reinstall the modem driver and corresponding software. Delete temporary Internet files and defragment HDD. This will fix such issues.
Another cause for resetting modem is defective modem hardware. In such cases you have to check hardware configuration of modem. First check whether the power supply is properly plugged in and it is unique. Then switch on the power and check whether all the indicating lights are properly turned on. If it is not, connect all the cables properly and reset the modem. Then reinstall the driver if needed. If the problem still exists you have to contact Motorola to fix this issue. Manual for troubleshooting and help in using the device are included in the CD.
Errors in Operating System are also cause of the modem reset. Sometimes virus might corrupt the OS and corresponding driver files. Operating system updating and errors in the Operating System file might create some issues. It is better to update modem driver with your Operating System. Otherwise driver and Operating System might cause some software conflicts and compatibility issues. The modem driver can be updated directly from the device manager. Reinstalling modem driver will fix almost all the issues related to file corruption. It is better to reinstall the Operating System than trying to repair it.
