Dsl led will not light up

All other leds light up but the dsl led never lights up. I was wondering if this had anything to do with the slower internet speeds.

INET light is on not able to connect to internet


Checked the instruction manual online. There's no INET light indicated. There's Power, Status, WAN, WLAN, and LAN LEDs. The WAN LED only indicates that the WAN port is connected to another device, e.g., cable or DSL modem. Check on your cable or DSL modem to see if the Internet light is on. If so, then you'll need to log into your router and go through the configuration/setup per the manual for your type of connection.

Cannot connect to my Internet. On my 2Wire modem at home, The Power LED light is solid green, the Ethernet LED light is green, the DSL LED light is continually flashing, and there is NO Internet LED...


With the DSL light always flashing, it means that either the ADSL signal (synchronization) does not reach your modem, or your modem cannot 'read' the signal.

You need to determine if the problem is from one of the following places :
  • outside of your house (your land line or ISP equipment) or from the modem;
  • your telephone-cable inside your house or
  • one of your equipment;


Try the following manipulations to determine from where the default comes :

  1. Determine if the problem is in your house or on the land line
    • Unplug each and every equipment which is connected to your telephonic installation (Fax, phones, answering machines etc);
    • Using the shortest telephone cable (RJ11) you possess, plug only your modem to the main telephone jack of your house.
    • If the DSL LED still flashes continuously, the problem is somewhere between your ISP's equipment and your house. You should call them and expose the situation. At this stage, you can't do much else.

  2. Determine if the problem is in your house installation
    If the DSL LED lights up when it is plugged to the main telephone jack, then it is either one of your equipment which is at fault, or the house installation. To pinpoint the problem, do the following :
    • With all the other equipment still unplugged, try the modem on all the other telephone jacks you have around the house.
    • If the DSL flashes continuously on one of the jacks, you will have found the source of your miseries. Depending on your ISP's terms and conditions, you will either have to call them of call for the services of a third-party technician to solve the problem.
    • If the DSL lights up correctly on all the telephone jacks, then your house telephone installation is good. Proceed to the next series of tests.

  3. Determine which equipment is at fault
    • Plus your modem to one telephone jack and wait for the DSL line to light solid.
    • Use a splitter (ADSL filter) to plug the equipments you possess (telephone, fax etc) one by one. Verify each time if the DSL LED is still lit or flashes continuously.
    • If one of the equipment causes the DSL LED to flash, it is that equipment which causes your problem.
    • If every equipment causes the DSL LED to flash, the it is the splitter (ADSL filter) which is causing the problem. You can confirm this hypothesis by testing each and every ADSL filter you have in your possession.
    • Replace any faulty equipment and you should have eliminated the problem.
If nothing of this solves your problem, you won't have any choice but call you ISP. Don't hesitate to tell them all tests you will have done.

May I also make some recommendations :
  1. Use a power surge protector (not a UPS though) to plug your modem to the electric outlet BUT plug it directly to the telephone jack;
  2. Make sure your modem is plugged in as far as possible from UPS, television, etc.;
  3. If possible, don't plug the modem in the same electric outlet as other equipments;
  4. Don't use any telephone extension cable to plug your modem to the telephone jack.

Hope this helps you. Let me know what happens next.

Cant connect to internet


Hi! Please post: - what type is your router - what type of internet connection you are use to connect (DSL,Cable...) - what is your operating system on your PC
Suggestion: If your router have some led lights in front of and all the lights are on then you have to change your router
If the led lights are not all on check which one is on and have activities, try to localize the problem by eliminating by the led lamp signal.
Maybe you have a problem on your PC. - bad network cable between the router and PC - firewall active on the PC or the router - bad network card in the PC

Hi,my zxdsl 831 recently the 'DSL' LED keeps on offing by itself from time to time,whereelse my 'PWR' and 'LAN' Led still works normally(resulting unable to connect)...ive read the book manual but isnt...


if the LED goes off and on but your internet access is fine then the LED is buring out. (very rare)
BUT if your internet comes and goes with the led light then you need to contact your dsl provider and find out why.
FIRST you should check your phone line cable to make sure it doesnt have a break or loose connection somewhere.

Adsl modem not working


First you must have a steady led light on the on Power, Act and Lan, the Sync led will flash until the modem connects to the DSL line. If you are not running a router but only a modem, you will need to create a PPPOE network connection on the computer. If you are using a router with the DSL modem you will need to create the PPPOE connection only on the router. I had recently a problem with the DSL service to my home. My modem showed DSL connected but could not connect the PPPOE connection, the telephone company had to reset the circuit that I am on which fixed the problem. BPCS
