Red - Power light / Green - Wireless light?
I was told By AT&T the modem was bad and I needed to buy a new one.
My girlfriend had the same model and was not using it.
So I tried hers with my power cord and got the same thing.
I called AT&T back and they said her's was bad too!
Then I changed to her power cord and it now works. It is the power adapter!

The stagnant red-power indicator suggests the modem is already worn off, usually after one and half years of use. You can try changing the original power adapter with the PSP one.

Hope it helps =)

That is a indication that the device is getting bad , first thing that you can do here is to reset it , by unplugging the power fro about 30 minutes and check if the light will be back to green but if still the same you can also reset the device by pressing teh reset button for 30 seconds while power is ON then if still power is red the device is already bad....

Power Problem with 2Wire 2701HG-B


Sounds like a startup self test. All wireless devices go through a power on self test. Does it connect? You can connect to it and go online? I rarely turn mine off, only in a electrical storm.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

Why is my port lights and internet lights blinking no power light comes on at all?


If the indicator for the numbers and the internet are blinking like christmas lights, this indicates that might be a hardware problem on your linksys router. A working router should show solid green power light. You may still resolve this by upgrading the firmware of the router.

No internet


If the power light is red this is a system error.

Try to reset the router by holding and pressing the reset button for 10 seconds. Then power cycle the router.

If the power light is still red. It is possible that the router is already defective.

Internet connection stopped suddenly


Switch off power to the modem, router and computer. Now switch on the modem first and let all lights on it to be stable.. Then switch on the router and let all lights on the router become stable. Once the lights on router are all stable, switch on the computer and then try to accerss sites.

After a power failure, the internet light in my router is red. I tried all the usual, switching on and off, resetting, disconnecting from phone and power line for several hours. Nothing makes the internet...


a red led usually indicates an error or defect. if removing the power for several minutes (or hours like you did) does not reset the error, then i'm afraid that you will have to replace the device completely. however, the root cause may still be found before the router. have you tried unplugging and replugging the modem as well?

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.

2Wire 473 router problem


Take the modem and plug it into a GFCI outlet. You can find one in the bathroom or the kitchen.

If the power light comes on solid green and the dsl comes on red then the modem is good. Was it plugged into a power strip by the computer? If so, plug it straight into a wall outlet.

If the power light comes on solid red then the modem has hardware failure. I would contact your ISP and have them replace it if it is still underwarranty.

Status light is red


Hi, Based on your post/description, the Siemens AP/Router is at fault. This could have been brought about by lightning, power surge, plain hardware failure or system/software error. The red status light - on indicates an error (on the firmware)(blinking during start-up or when firmware is being downloaded/updated); WAN light blinking green - data transmission to/from your ISP (it is also possible that the router is trying to download corrective software or firmware update). Suggest you let it run for sometime just in case it is really downloading/upgrading firmware. If full reset of the router doesn't correct the problem, you may have to replace the unit. Good luck and kind regards.
