Try power turning off once and if still remains the problem then the problem could be with internet service provider so contact them once. and if they say we are good then you need to look at internal bugs.
for that visit following website where you can find complete service manuals.

Dsl light goes beyween blinking green, then goes solid red, then back to blinking green. Cannot connect to internet anymore.


The modem cannot get a signal from your service provider. The DSL light is an indicator if your modem is communicating with the network of your service provider. DSL light should always stay solid green. Try contacting your service provider. It might also be an indication of a bad modem.

My dsl light will flash red when im surfing in the web and then it will restart normal for about an hour then the same thing will happen so what should i do ive reboted the system and power cycle it and...


Hi,

Good day. For your problem as suggest for you to contact at&t and ask for a modem replacement. It should not take an hour for your dsl light to turn solid green. A red light also indicates a problem on the modem itself. Better to get it now than to lose your connection permanently in the future. Hope this information help you a lot. Have a great day to you.

No because dsl light should be solid green light. You need to contact your ISP to check if there is a problem on the network.

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.

I have the Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem, trouble using software


You may check the following:

1. Make sure to plug the power cube into a power strip or wall outlet and then plug the power cube's other end into the modem's power (PWR) jack.

2. You should only use the power cube with the Zoom X6. Other power cubes may damage your hardware.

3. Try another wall outlet.

4. Reset the modem. Use a paper clip and insert it into the RESET pinhole in the modem's back panel and press it 3 times. Then turn off the modem for a minute and turn it back on. Check if the power light will turn solid green.

5. Possible defective modem.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Power light cycles to red, no other lights on


Hi der... well the issue your facing is simple to say ur power adaptor is faulty. Usually its due to some electrical shorts or maybe some heavy lightnings. You can always have a remedy for it.

1st : Buy a new adaptor.
2nd: call ur ISP to have it replaced if ur still under some contract term or if the modem is still under warranty.
3rd : you can buy ur own ADSL2+ modem from supporting outlets . Make sure ur isp supports this modem.

This are the solutions for ur problem pal.. So make a wise decision.. Any needs and help post it to FixYa..ANd the experts here will fix ya..!

1st time installation: cannot install modem properly


Hey try this one, if doesn't work let me know. First you have to powercyle your modem - meaning turn it off for 10 to 25 seconds then power it up again. Then check status of the modem lights. It should all be in solid green. Else you have to check if cables are properly connected - Data cable (green cable) one end connected to the filter with labeled "DSL/PHN" or the one with monitor engraved, then other end connected to the green port on the back of your modem. Then check also connection of filter to walljack. After which check status of the lights. If still not all in solid green. Check devices near to your modem, these might be the reason for interference of DSL signal. Electronic such as monitors, speakers... must be 2-3 feet away from your modem. Check modem lights. If all in green, test connection. Also there should only be one phone jack connected to your DSL phone line.

Red Internet Light on Westell model 6100F


hi rtoffler....

by the way, is the dsl light solid green or red???...and if it's red... the line connection from the server to your modem is doing good...however, you said that the internet light is red because you have not configured your modem properly.... i mean, you need to update the interface of your modem before you can go online....and whether the message said that you're connected to the network when you connect your XBox 360...the only assurance is when you can browse different websites and lets you go online...however, your pc should be in tri core so that it's compatible with your Xox 360 video game,kkk and so that you would not encounter problems and errors in the future,kkk....and by the way...the data light is always blinking esp if you're browsing websites, the faster it'll blink nd it can't go on a solid green light anyways...,,kkk....and i do hope i was able to configure a little to your concern now....and enjoy playing and downloading more and chanllenging and fun games with your Xbox 360k,,,,happy playing games, rtoffler!!!!! and happy new year by the way!!!!...:-D
