First of all, log onto the router via LAN port, select my network, click on wireless setting and ensure the wireless is ENABLE then click save to save the new setting. Use your laptop to connect to your router. Once connected the light will lit green. At some point lock your network.

Hi dilex
The 2wire router wireless light comes only when a system is connected to it wireless.

Please post the system that you are using and also what exactly when you try to connect via wireless.

Thank you

I have a ATT 2wire modem and all lights are solid green except the wireless light and if theirs too much activity online then it shuts all the other lights off except the power light


Wireless is supposed to blink. Check to see if the power outlet might be giving out. If not, then you might have to replace the router.

Power Problem with 2Wire 2701HG-B


Sounds like a startup self test. All wireless devices go through a power on self test. Does it connect? You can connect to it and go online? I rarely turn mine off, only in a electrical storm.

All lights are green except the dsl one


It means your not receiving any data signal from your internet service provider, might be a line issue. Try calling your internet service provider like AT&T or Comcast or Verizon.

Ehternet light is out (amber), Power, wireless, DSL and internet light on (green). Desktop is wired to the 2wire. Wireless is working.


H there,

Try replacing the ethernet cable, If it does not work try reinstalling the drivers of your NIC card or LAN card. If it still does not work your NIC or LA card is busted.

Having problems with 2wire router that keeps dropping the internet. All light are on except ethernet, does this mean the router is no good. Recently replaced the power cord which helped for awhile.


how do you connect to your router? If there's no ethernet cable plug in on the router, the Ethernet light on your router is suppose to be off. Also try to move your router 2-3 ft. away from any electrical devices like wireless phone, printer etc. because of electromagnetic interference. It may help your wireless connection to be stable and faster.

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.
