Your cable signal is probably to weak at the modem. This is the most common cause, especially if it works and then doesn't, works for a while then doesn't.

Call your cable company and have them come out to check signal strength at the modem.

You could have a damaged drop to the house, water damage on the line, squirrel chew (seriously), dry rotted drop, too many splitters in the house, etc...

Unable to connect to the internet. one of the light is blinking on the modem, i think it's the 3rd one from the top.


Is it the Data Light? If it's the Data Light it's actually normal for it to blink since it's getting the user data to the modem. However, you might want to recheck the connections, if the cables are connected correctly to the correct port. If all else fails, you might want to contact your Internet Service Provider where you got this modem from since the modem might be faulty.

You can check the manual for this modem here:

Makes sure the cable connecting your router and modem is an Ethernet Cable..... and also make sure it is connected in the right port which would be symboled by either the word Internet being by it or the word Ethernet..... Some times there is a light inside where you stick the cable in, make sure that is lighting up.... Also buying a new Ethernet Cable could fix the problem...... What type of Router do you have?

plug the one ethernet cable from the modem into the router wan port . The modem will have an ip address note this and then change the ip address to one higher than the modem for the router's ip address and change the ip address in the router to make the gateway ip address the modem ip address.
Disable the DHCP server in the Router iIf the modem has an active DHCP server in the router.

Modem light keeps blinking Have tried resetting. Restoring to default settings. If I hook the computer directly to the time warner modem I can acces the internet fine. Thanks


If the modem light keeps blinking, it means that the router hasn't been configured yet. Also, rarely, it can be an issue with WAN port/modem port on the router or the ethernet cable connecting the modem to router or finally, modem may not be working as its not applicable in this case(as you said).
How to configure the router for Time Warner?
1.Connect comp.--(gray port) router (yellow port)--modem
2.On the computer, open the router page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of browser
3.Under Internet Settings, change the connection type as Dynamic.
4.On the far left column, click on "MAC address" under Internet WAN.
5.Click on clone and apply changes and finally check Internet status
6.If internet status > Not connected, we need to do a network power cycle
7.For this, unplug the power from router, then from modem, then unplug the coaxial cable from cable modem.
8. Wait for 10 sec, then connect the coaxial cable, then connect power to modem, wait for lights on modem to get steady, then finally, plug in the power to router.
Now, you may see proper lights lit on the router.
All my best wishes for a fast internet service through the router.

For any advanced help, revert asap!
Thanks and regards,
Arvind
