Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
My modem when downloading a file or when my browser is loading a web page has a blinking indicator light labeled "ETHERNET" this light blinks when doing work on the Internet. The other four indicator lights are: POWER, WIRELESS, DSL, and INTERNET. I believe the recent time change for daylight savings caused my modem to completely reset itself. Called customer support and set the modem back up again to operational status. Now I notice the Internet indicator light and the Ethernet indicator light blinking in tandem with each other when the modem is doing work on the Internet. Doing work on the Internet meaning opening a web page, downloading a file from the Net. My modem has never done this ever up until a few days ago when I had to initiate the setup and password with at&ts customer service. Is this new blinking light a normal activity of my modem now?

New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs $6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.
Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.
Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...

SOURCE: Blinking light on the DSL modem.
Unfortunately it sounds like the modem may need to be replaced. I had the same issue. Even after doing a complete shutdown, resetting all the cables, restarting the modem and then the computer, it still did not work. After you get the modem replaced, I would suggest you get a spare, possibably from e-bay, so if this happens again, you will not be without DSL Service.

If you plug in computers on the ethernet ports and they dont light up at all but you are sure that the cables that you are using works as well as the ethernet port on your computer that means that the unit is already defective. You can contact 8003267114 for replacement if its under warranty

You may need to reset the router (your son's computer may have a virus or spyware, run the anti-virus program on it)
At the back of the Linksys Router you will find a reset button press and hold it for about 30 sec. (Make sure you are holding the button properly.),
it will reset all the settings of the router.
After that reboot the router, connect your computer with port no. 1, and then try to open 192.168.1.1 from the Internet explorer of your computer.
It will give you a message "The server at 192.168.1.1, WRT54GS require a USER NAME and Password.”
Now type "admin" in the password and it will take you to the LINKSYS ROUTER SETUP
Hooking up an Xbox with Linksys routers:
Open an Internet Explorer browser page.In the address bar type - 192.168.1.1
Leave username blank & in password use admin in lower case...
Click on "Applications and Gaming" tab and then click on "Port Range Forwarding" sub tab...
1) On the first line in Application box type in ABC, in the start box type in 88 and End box type in 88, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box...
2) On the second line in Application box type in PQR, in the start box type in 3074 and End box type in 3074, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box...
3) On the third line in Application box type in XYZ, in the start box type in 53 and End box type in 53, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box and click on Save Settings...
3) Once you return to the set up page click on the Security tab and uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests and click on Save Settings...
4) Click on set-up and change the MTU Size to 1452 and click Save Settings...
5) Goto the XBox Network Settings and IP Address Settings and select manual IP Settings and assign the following on your Xbox
IP Address :- 192.168.1.20, Subnet Mask :- 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway :- 192.168.1.1...
6) Also assign the DNS Addresses on the Xbox
Primary dns :- 188.8.131.52...Secondary dns :- 192.168.1.1
7) Turn off your modem, router, and Xbox...Wait for a minute...
8) Plug the modem power first, wait for another minute and plug the router power cable, wait another minute and turn on the Xbox and test it...it will connect...
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
