    I'm trying to get my new AT&T 2-wire modem/router to work. AT&T has been no help to me at all. Their technical "support" is one of the worst I've ever encountered! I've suffered their inneptness for over 2 weeks, and still cannot get a technician to come to my home! They claim that my DSL service is installed, yet my 2-wire modem/router DSL light continuously flashes red. I can't connect to the internet with it.

    So, I'm trying to follow the steps I found on Tech Support Guy that were given to another member (a long time ago).

    (Here's the old link that I saved: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/748775-having-trouble-router-newbie.html)

    I'm trying to use my MS Windows XP Home Edition to 'run' the command: ipconfig /all

    But, the 'DOS' box pops up on my display then disappears after only 1/2 second. Therefore, I can't get the info.

    What do you recommend to solve that particular issue (before I post again with my main problem of not being able to get DSL to work)?

    You missed the steps about first opening a command prompt window.

    "Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:"

    I was expecting it to work just like typing "msconfig" (from the "Run..." command).

    Thanks. I didn't know.
