2Wire DSL 1000 modem. It appears to not have power to the unit (no green lights) and I'm guessing the power converter os is bad. Do you have a spare? Is there a test I can perform?

Use a voltmeter to check the pins in the power cable for the proper values. The output ratings are shown on the label on the adapter.

If the adapter is bad you might be able to get a replacement from your service provider (if you got the modem from them). You would probably have more luck just replacing the modem. DSL modems are available at big-box retailers (Wal-Mart, Office Depot, etc.).

My 2wire has the power light red and the ethernet green and th wireless solid green and the dsl off and the internet off....what can i do


I had the same problem on the Gateway 2701HG-B supplied from ATT for use with their DSL service. From searching the web, I learned these variety of modems apparently have an expiration date on the power cord at about 18 mos to 2 years. Mine is almost exactly at 2 yrs.

I replaced the power cord and now it works fine. You can order the OEM replacement from att e-store or try Radio Shack for a universal cord.

My dsl light is on green but my power light is on red. After a while no lights are on. My router is a 2wire that's about a year old


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.

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.

2WIRE Single Port DSL Line Filter


i think when you purchased the 2wire modem it usually comes along with 3 sets of single port dsl line filters, try out those other filters see which one works. if the local network light doesn't come on, (are you using 2wire 1000 series?), check the network adapters in your computer, this usually happens when you are using lower versions of OS. try the power outlet in the kitchen / bathroom, if power light doesn't come on, push the reset button for 30 secs. if power light is still off or red, then you may need to replace the modem (check if it's still under warranty, if not you will need to buy a new one.) also you should be using the same power adapter that came with the modem, check the specs. sometimes if the modem is more or less than 3 years old, they could get defective especially if it's often affected by sudden power surges.

2wire modem 1000 series


Power light on what? If the modem, then you need to make sure the wall outlet has power first.. then work your way towards the modem and ensure that power is actually being delivered to the device..
