The reason why your internet light is red for the actiontec gt701-wg is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this router. enter the username and password for your internet connection. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your router.

The following link provides some very streightforward advise;
http://www.qwest.com/internethelp/modems/gt701/pdf/13566_GT701_ServiceStatus_031906msl.pdf

check the following in order
1 check that all of the cables are securely plugged in, if you find any loose plug them back in, you may need to powercycle the router afterwards though if the router is subsquently plugged into another unit down the chain power off both units turn them back on turning on the actiontec last.

2 if your ISP requires logon details to be included in your router, double check by viewing your router settings renter them if you are unsure.

3 lastly, have you paid your ISP bill?

My modem isnt working. the red Power Light stays Red. and the only green light is the "Wireless" one. i tried disconnecting the modem but didnt work. help?


Red light goes for defective modem if your 2wire is still in warranty then i would suggest calling your OEM/ISP... or if your under a certain package call your internet service provider... one thing might work though but still a risk you may try looking for a PSP(portable playstation) powercode it sometimes works with it...
if you got them from AT&T you can buy the power cord alone... just act aggravated that does the trick most of the time or ask for a supervisor...
i should know I worked with them for 2yrs as a tech support

if your with AT&T try calling this number
AT&T ' Yahoo! High speed Internet
Call +1 877 722 3755 (877-SBC-DSL5)

Lost internet connection, router has a red light on it but i cant connect


Just for you to be aware, a red light on the router means it failed.
Depending on where the red light is, that is where the connection failed, if the red light is on DSL, it means that there is a problem with the server (internet service provider) but if the red light is on INTERNET (authentication failure = router needs to be reconfigure) etc.... to better assist you contact your service provider.

I cannot stay connected to internet, my model 2701HG-B 2wire at&t dsl will start flashing red then disconnect me from the internet or my game site, how can i get this to stay fluently connected please!


You might want to try disconnecting everything EXCEPT the power cord. If you still get the red power light (it should stay there forever) then bring the gateway to Radio Shack or somewhere they have a 5 volt DC @ 2 amp power supply and plug it in for 5 to 10 minutes and see if the power light then stays green. If it stays green then all you need is a new power supply! If not, then the gateway is fried. Mine keeps going from a solid green power light to a flashing green power light and I can hear a relay click every 2 minutes at which time a pop-up say "ethernet line disconnected". I tried new power supply etc. to no avail! It is fried after 1.5 years! No more 2wire for me!

Trying to change from actiontec gt701 to actiontec gt701-wg. after new modem is hooked up, internet light stays red. switched by to old modem and all is fine. anyone know why internet light stayed red?


The reason why your internet light is red for the actiontec gt701-wg is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this router. enter the username and password for your internet connection. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your new router.

The old router has green light because it was already configured by your ISP provider.

MY INTERNET LIGHT STAYS RED BUT I HAVE ACCESS TO THE NET,NEED HELP


I don't think the light can be red.. did you mean "amber"??

if it is amber your internet light is on adsl training which as far as I understand is a period while possibly your isp is trying to collect data of user's usuage of the connection towars adjustment or upgrades. it's possibly worth it to check with your ISP (internet service provider) to see if they know about it.

alternatively it could also mean that your router is trying to sync up with the other end of the link (the isp). everytime that a link is stablished if there are any changes on either end, negotiation of speed and protocols need to be exchanged to ensure the link is up. the change could come from either end.

some times and amber light could also indicate some type of failure, see if you can get another device to test and do check with the isp regardless.

good luck!

Power light red ,internet light red no other


Most of the time a red internet light means that the box can't find the internet / can't find it ISP / can't get on the DSL what ever.
Might be the modem, might be the power adapter.

Power Light Is Red, Internet Light Is Green, Other Lights Off


Check cable connections.

Try unplugging router from power for five minutes.

If that does not work call Internet Service provider to check if there is a problem with their server.

Internet Light Stays Red on WAG54GS Wireless Router


If your router's internet light is red it means to say that there's no connection. You really have to call Tesco.
