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.

Whenever i turn my router on instead of the light being green its red. whats wrong with it?


Hi,

That means that the router is not getting sufficient power supply. It's either the power cord is defective or the router itself is.

Thank you for visiting FixYa!

The red protect light comes on, i dont know how to make it go green so it will work. please help!!


Devices with several light emitting indicators would each display as observation of manufacturers installed features. Red indication is power cciuit indication, yelow as alternate warning where green is indication of regular fucntionality. Once the device is least malfunct, every light is an equal expectation. Usually with amplifeiers, the red light has to be on throughout until stereo became powered on to porduce green light effects as radio expectations.

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.

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?

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.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.

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.

TV won't turn on


The red light instead of green is an indication that theres a voltage missing or an improper voltage in the sweep or main power supplys. This should be handled by a trained service tech. Good Luck
