Red Blinking Light on My Modem

Hello,

I got my AT&T High Speed Internet about three weeks ago. It worked for the first day and then the DSL/Internet lights on my modem started flashing red. Sometimes it will continually blink from red to green, or just stay red for a long time. After a day or two, everything will be back to normal and I can go online for a few hours. Then it goes back to blinking red. I unplug it and let it sit for a long time before plugging the modem back in and it turns on and starts flashing red again. When it does this, I can hear a clicking sound within the modem as if it's trying to connect over and over again, but fails anyway. I don't know if it's the modem or my phone line. I don't have an AT&T phone line, so I don't know if the lines in my apartment are faulty or if it's just the modem overheating or disagreeing with my computer. Any help would be great.

    I have same problem, am with ATT, called att they checked line said was ok. Doesn't happen all time, but just occasionally - just goes red blinking and have to unplug and replug - very aggravating. Do modems need to be replaced or does anyone have any ideas why. I bought new computer, never happened on old one.

SOURCE: need download cd for modem/soundcard

Hi, You can try & proceed to HP website (http://www.hp.com/) and go to the Software & Driver Downloads (left side near the bottom). You have to determine the specif model/version of your HP computer which might look something like "HP Pavilion 4550Z" From initial indications you would be looking for an Internal Modem/Sound Card that was originally set for Windows 98SE. Chances are that it is a Conexant or Rockwell SoftK56 Data,Fax PCI Modem, with Master Riptide PCI Audio Device. Post back should you need additional information. State your PC's model. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Connect 2 PCs to Westell 6100 DSL modem

well depends on if you want to hookup wirelessly with one or not. If the modem has a USB connection as well as ethernet, then you can hook up 1 computer to usb and 1 to ethernet with no problems. If you do want a wireless hookup then yes, you need a wireless router. I would just go with a router because of the convenience of being able to go wireless if you decide to. I would suggest a Linksys WRT-54GL with a 3rd party firmware (DD,-WRT, Tomato, etc.) Hope this helps.

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.

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.

My dsl light on my 2wire gateway has been blinking red for an hour, it is past the service activation time and everything is set up correctly but it won't work!


did you install all the filters on all of your phone jacks?
If so then power cycle the modem "unplug it from the ac for 2-3 minutes". Try again
If still no luck open a trouble ticket with att and tell them its not connecting on the DSL side..

I have had problems connecting to internet all weekend (internet - red light), am on now but internet and ethernet green light keep blinking, is this ok.


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.

When the DSL light turns red it indicates that the modem has no internet signal.
So please check if the cables are connected properly
Also ensure that there is a proper signal to your premises without any interference
This is called intermittent connection
If the DSL light turns red it indicates that there is a problem with the cables connected or the DSL line
Please check your DSL connection with ISP

There is on another reason that the modem might have gone bad.
If all the above steps are executed and if this issue still persists replace the modem
