    A friend suspects their modem has been disabled by lightning. How can I determine this, recognize what the modem is, take it out, ground myself etc. milt.

    What exactly is happening when trying to access the modem?

    The modem would be visible from the rear of the computer, it probably has two telephone connectors, but if it's older, it could have one.

    Touch the metal case to ground yourself....unplug everything from the back of the computer prior to opening it.

    AcaCandy. Thanks for your reply. This helps me, perhaps not now as my friends had someone do the replacement. The modem was bad. I am sure I will come across the same problem sometime so now I have a start thanks to you. Milt.



    Thanks for letting us know, I'll mark this one solved! :)
