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....

If your internet light is off. It means you need to contact you internet provider because they need to configure your modem/router for your username and password. You can only get that information from your internet provider.
If the internet light is red, it is not fine. Are you talking to AT&T support?. While on the phone with them, I had to re-add my username and password with IE and then they had to reset my connection and it worked. Give AT&T Internet support a call.
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).
