I have an f-11 Starc satellite modem it died. Will not dial out. Did all usual troubleshooting fixes, no modem sounds if I pick up phone. Software says 88% satellite available so transducer must be working. There is no tech support available, been waiting for a call back since Monday. Is there any way to buy another modem to use. I have Starconnect for ISP provider, may cancel credit card payment as I have had to reinstall MSN dialup and the world is passing me by quickly. Any help or advice? Any work arounds?

No idea. It depends on who it belongs to. If it is yours and off warranty then buy another.

Have you tried rebooting the modem by unplugging the power cord? The reboot option doesn't seem to do the job.

Have you tried a different dial-up number?

Does your modem need the "patch"?

You've probably have already tried all this, just throwing ideas out.
