Talking Butter On Modem

Hi people.

My name is Seamore.

Several weeks ago i left a tub of butter and gravy on my modem and found it several days later. Somehow and i have no idea how the butter leaked throught the plastic tub and into the modem. I managed to clean the oily residue off the outside of the modem however it no longer works properly. I posted on another forum but none of the help posted actually worked. I was wondering if there is any way to clean/fix my modem.

The modem is a web excel that i bought at chrismas and i was really hoping to fix it as i am poor as buggery.

Thanks guys and girls.

Is "butter and gravy" some kind of code for "semen"?

It's more likely than not that the butter caused a short which fried one or more of the components on the modem. It would take you countless hours to identify which parts are bad, and then even more time to do the surface mount rework to replace those parts (assuming you can even find them.)

Okay, I'm assuming this is a cable modem or something and not a v92 modem. Is this assumption correct?

It sounds like one of those modems that support compression of pictures and audio into lossy formats and then back again as a means of "accelerating" websites. Not a good solution IMO but I guess theres a market for em.

I would have got some alcohol and cleaned it before putting it back in or turning it on.
