No 'Status' light on the modem

There was a power supply surge at my apartment and my modem was affected.It came back and the 'Status' light on the modem has not come on solid green since then. The LAN and USB lights are flashing and when I try to set up the modem,I'm told that 'A network cable is unplugged'. I've installed the modem on another PC and it's the same problem withe no assistance from my ISP's tech support department. I can't even access the modem's admin page to look at anything there.

First of all, who owns the modem? If the ISP provided it and charges a monthly fee as part of your service, have them replace it and set it up. Problem solved!

If it's yours however, the surge may have damaged the LAN port, turning it into a brick, and you'll need to find a replacement. There is the possibility though, that the settings have just gotten corrupted. If that is the case, defaulting the unit will allow you to access the modem's admin page and re-configure (you must know the default IP address). Defaulting to factory is usually a matter of disconnecting power for 30 seconds or so, holding the reset button, usually accessible through a small hole with a toothpick or paper clip, and plugging the power back in while holding the button.

Good luck!

I just reset my dell computer back to factory setting. How do I now reset up for internet connection. My provider is verizon and I am using internet explorer


You want to reset your internet connection???
If yes then follow the given steps....

Step 1

Turn the modem so that the back of it is facing you. Locate the power supply cord connected to the back of the device.
Step 2

Gently unplug the power supply cord and leave it unplugged for about 10 seconds. If you also have a router connected to the modem, disconnect the power cord of the router as well.
Step 3

After about 10 seconds reconnect the DSL modem power cord. Wait for the status lights on the front of the unit to come on. They may blink at first before turning solid green, or they may first illuminate as orange, then turn green, depending on the modem model. The "Internet" and "Incoming" lights may continue to flicker, this is normal operation for modems.
Step 4

After the modem is reset, reconnect the router power supply if you have a router. Wait a few minutes before resuming normal Internet use.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell

We lost power for a few hours .The cable company ( charter ) had to reboot the modem to reestablish the internet connection. Since then I cannot get the Cisco router to work.. I've done all the plug,...


1. if the power went out and then back on it is possibly due to a "power surge" and it possibly damaged the power supply to the Cisco router and or to the router itself.
2. check the routers power supply and replacement is needed if the router was not plugged into a surge protected socket.

My modem ADSL data light keeps flashing and sometimes does not appear affecting my ability to acces the Internet.
I usually have to re-boot my computer and this seems to solve the problem for a time. It is very inconsistant and anoying.Thank youM. Davis

ADSL DATA light flashes says there is internet activity (Internet status: Connected)...
ADSL DATA when off says there is no internet activity (Internet status: Not Connected)...

This occurs when there is a lot of noise in your telephone line...
It is adviced to do a line test in this case to find the amount of noise in your line...
If there is a lot of noise your modem will lose the internet connectivity and will try to re-establish the connection with ISP...
In this case the ADSL DATA light switches between OFF and ON...

One more thing...
ADSL SYNC light should be steady...
If it is blinking is says there is no syncronisation between your modem and ISP...

Hi there!. unplug the power plug of your 2wire box from the surge protector for 1minute and after 1 min, plug in directly to the wall outlet, not to the surge protector. try to unplug and replug as well the connection on the back of your 2wirebox and check the cable connection from the isp cable to the modem,, the last option that your going to do is to reset the modem of your modem/router but make sure that you know the settings of your modem and wireless settings if u have.. or contact your isp provide for further details..there is a situation that there is a problem from your dsl company connection, most dsl use telephone lines..

No connection after lightning and thunder


There's ALWAYS the chance of damage.

If you have reset both the router and the cable modem and it still doesn't work, bypass the router and try connecting the system directly to the Cable/DSL modem. If your computer works in that situation the router has been affected, double check your connections between modem & router AND between router and computer.

If you still cannot connect, call your internet provider and inquire re: system status in your area. If all is good ask them if they can 'see' your modem. They will check their equipment to see if your modem is connected and communicating with their system. If they don't find it the modem is suspect.

If they can see the modem but you are still unable to connect to the internet via the router/switch, then the router/switch is the culprit.

Of course this all assumes everthing is OK with your computer. Otherwise this becomes a much larger troubleshooting issue. But let's not go there yet.

BIG TIP: Invest in a lightweight UPS or a line conditioner, particularly one that will protect your inbound Internet connection (coax or phone line) as well as the Ethernet port protection you need. In the end it's a LOT cheaper than replacing lightning damaged hardware.

Surge Protectors are of limited value because a majority (80% or more) of all power related electronic issues, especially regarding solid state circuitry, is due to BROWNOUTS, not surges. Something the manufacturers of surge suppression strips & related hardware are reluctant to admit, but that's why they can reliably afford to insure their surge protectors for ridiculous sums.

Apply this same principle to home entertainment systems, tv's (especially LCD & Plasma), game consoles, and any other valuable home electronics.

Cant get internet on both computers using router


When did the router stop working?

Have you tried a new cable between the router and the modem?

Since the status light is off on the router, that tells me that there is no communication between the router and modem. Is it possible that the router was reset by accident? Resetting it will put all settings to default. If it has been reset then you need to sign on to the router to setup the communication again to your modem. Typically this is done via the IP address.

I can walk you through those steps if that is the case. Try supplying a different cable though between the router and modem. Power off both of them, power on the modem and then power on the router....then try to connect to the Internet.

My D-Link DI-514 wireless router doesn't light up


Sounds like you have a bad power supply. In my personal experiences with bad routers they either don't light up at all or all the lights blink. It doesn't take much to send one to the router graveyard. Power surges and lightning strikes are the most common culprits. Hope this helps
