password) provided by your service provider.
If still unable to establish a connection, reset (or power cycle) your broadband modem by turning off the modem's power switch, waiting 5 seconds and turning the power back on. If your modem does not have a power switch, follow the same procedure powering the modem off and on by unplugging and plugging in the modem’s power cord.
