Re: ST516v6 Modem has all lights except the Internet.
Check your IP address, go to start... run... cmd... and type in ipconfig... if your ip address is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx then you need to troubleshoot on your computer.. get a local tech to help you out.. if not then the ip should be 192.168.1.xxx thats the residential gateway....

Ok so the router will broadcast even without an IP from the modem. Without the IP even though your pc is talking to the router you will have no internet. The IP is assigned to the modem from your ISP "internet service provider" The router has to assume the IP then assign a mac address to the pc using the internet. A residential modem meaning your not a business is given a dynamic IP which can change at anytime the blade server wants it to. A business gets a static ip which never changes. There lies your issue. Whats happened is your modem has been assigned a new IP and the router is still trying use the old IP. So unplug your modem and router. Plug the modem back in and let it sync up. Once all the lights are back on "with exception for the "link" light plug the router back in give it a cpl minutes your internet will work again.
Disconnect the modem from the internet, your computers and anything else except power then boot it up again. Does anything at all change?
If nothing changes perform a soft reset... which prolly means leaving the modem powered up, poking a paper-clip into a tiny hole and whipping it right back out. When it comes on, does anything at all change?
If not either call the modem supplier or your internet service provider, or perform a hard reset; remembering that a hard reset will destroy all your settings.
Almost certainly, if a modem fails to work after a hard reset and following whatever advice your supplier or ISP offer, it needs replacing.
You might try this:
1 power off or unplug your cable or DSL Modem.
2 Power off your router
3 waiti about 30 seconds,
4 plug in your cable/DSL modem
5 wait until the modem boots up (all lights except activity should be on)
6 power up your router.
Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future... The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations. 1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..
So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks.... Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....
turn off the PC and the modem. connected the modem to your IPS (Internet Provider). using a ethernet cable in the port marked WAN. connected another CAT5 cable from any of LAN port to your PC. turn on the modem first then your PC. waite for the PC to boot up. You should have Internet access. unless you Internet Provider need to configure them modem.(dependend on who is your Internet Privider).
