Check Modem??

By sweetonesissy ·

Hi - I'm sure this is a stupid question but that's what I'm best at. Is there a way to test a modem without being hooked to the computer? As in changing the location to plug into another cable coax in a different part of the house. I know the modem has a spot that turns green when on the internet and I didn't know if that would light up as well on its own if I plug the coax into the modem. OR if it must be connected to the PC as well to do its thing?

say a cable connection in another room, then if your internet service is also live to that connection, YES, your modem should go "green" if you connect to the outlet without any PC connected.
