    Is this problem common and why ? I have 2 SB5100 's with the same problem .Power light blinking and no other lights. I have a third modem SB5100 when I connect this modem to same connection as others were it works perfectly.So problem is definitely modem related. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Modem keeps blinking a red light then turns to a green and red light


If you are referring to power light, blinking light specially if red indicates hardware damage. powering down the modem for a minute and powering it back on normally stabilizes it but if not normally it needs replacement.

Constantly blinking Activity light


Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future...
The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations.
1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals  about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..

So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks....
Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....

Flashing dsl light


The DSL light flashing on the modem is natural for it means the device is synchronizing. But if the DSL light continues to flash, you have to wait a while before connecting, it shouldn't take more than a minute. If it does, you may need to contact your service provider because that is uncommon whether there is active Internet connection or none.

Your modem is not synching. It could be a number of possibilities, and you're going to have to do some troubleshooting to narrow it down.
  • Verify that your AC, Cat 5, & ethernet cables are connected securly
  • Verify that your modem is not in "standby" mode
  • Power cycle your modem
  • Try a different cable outlet
  • Call your ISP to make sure your modem is provisioned and your service is set up for cable internet.

Zoom X5 ADSL light not blinking


May be your ADSL modem has clapped out it sounds like it. You say you can connect via the PC modem that means the dialup is working......I imagine you have tried the ID logon and password for the ADSL also and it still wont connect. Try support at your ISP and if it still dont connect then it must be had it, you will need to buy another.
