I recently bought one and the only way it can be removed from the connection is with pliers and trying VERY hard to remove it. When logging on to my old pc, the contrary modem won't connect unless that cable is OUT. At present, I must use old pc for email and C-D , so, back and forth is temporarily necessary.

Never had that problem; perhaps its the Modem or your not depressing the tab correctly to remove. Much like removing a telephone cable connector really.

I've had that happen when the protective boot is too stiff. A sharp knife solves that problem.

I prefer cables without the boot. Some brands of connector fit tighter than others. Get another cable and give it a try.

Ditto. I always cut them off my cables.

Thanks. Nicely enough, it apparently just needed to be used a few times.
