These 2Wire devices are known to have their wall-wart weaken over time. Although you can measure the proper voltage coming from the wall-wart, when you load it with the DSL modem, the actual voltage drops giving you the red power light. The green DSL light may or may not be accurate while the DSL modem is not getting the power it needs. Look online or go to a store like Radio Shack for a replacement wall wart.
The red light on power means that the diagnostic for the modem is on, and when this is on this means that the memory or another component of your modem is at fault. Usually this can be resolved through a firmware upgrade to be applied by 2wire, but note that 50% of the time, when the diagnostic light is on, the device is dead.
To have this issue resolved, you may refer to your ISP or 2wire, if it cannot be revived, the least they can do is provide a recommendation.
I would increase the wireless power inside the modem. This will boost the signal allowing it to stay connected more often.
- open IE
- browse to gateway.2wire.net
- homenetwork icon
- wireless settings - enter your system password
- If your on channel 1 or 11 the power will only be able to go to 4.
- Change to a wireless channel between 2 and 10
- Increase the power to 10
try to use another power adapter with the similar power output aside from what came with your 2wire modem if you have one, if it works fine that means the original power adapter is busted and i think it is also covered by the warranty, get a replacement from the store where you purchased it.
oh by the way, it's normal for all of the lights on your modem or router to blink when you initially power on the hardware, usually your hardware will perform a system check for several seconds to verify if there is any problem after that, several lights if not one should remain steady like the power light, the other lights on the other hand like the ethernet(LAN) or the wireless(WLAN) will most likely flicker from now and then because it indicates activity between the modem and the device/s attach to it.
Hope that answer your concern about your 2wire modem.
Hi! Kindly check if you are using the same 2wire power adapter that came originally with the whole package, also try plugging it in another power outlet, like the kitchen or bathroom, & see how long the power light stays on. Plug it straight in the wall socket. If power light keeps going on/off even if you have plugged it in another power outlet, maybe you need to restore this modem back to its default settings. That can be done by doing a hard reset on the modem, push the reset button (found between the ethernet & usb ports), but be sure you have a record of your username & password on your internet account.
hi! have you used this other identical 2wire modem before? if this other 2wire modem (is it the same 1701hg?) well you may need to configure the settings first. also 1000 series modems usually have 3 lights on it; power, broadband link, and local network. if these 3 lights are on, you may need to access the modem's user interface. assuming that all lights are green, on your computer directly attached to the 2wire, open up any browser, type in gateway.2wire.net. it will give you the network at a glance page. click on run system setup wizard, type in the system password. on the ppp authentication page, please check if it has your username & password (this is the one that you set up on your internet acct w/ your ISP), the next screen will establish a connection. (please tell me if you've got any error messages...)
Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at email@example.com
I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.
Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.
