I might add when this did happen while I was using Vista it did give me a error of "local access only" But Like I said before I don't get anything telling me somethings wrong now.

Usually if a something stops working, it have something in the event logs. Have u made any changes eg installed anything? You may have a virus. Do a scan.

Hm well I did use a 6100 on my old pc that was running Xp never had a issue..Like this.Funny Verizion said the modem was compatible with Vista and 7.Looks like I might have to dish out more $ for yet another modem joy

Ok, next thing is to reinstall firefox and test it, you won't be able to remove IE, so try Ff. If still no good do a system point restore.
