How about the DSL light?
If its solid green then your problem could be a mistyped ISP username/password in the router, or your subscription expired.

Hi, Here is your solution.
Please ensure the proper physical connection from modem to router and to the computer as mentioned on the box and make your all lights are on modem.After that turn on the router,if your have a cable modem, you can very well go for a hard reset,that it is at the back of your router you would see a reset button which is a button inside a hole. Please hold the button for 20 secs with power on router and 20 seconds without power continuously for 3mins (remember to hold the reset button through out 3 mins while plugin and plugout the power cord of the router and use pin or pen to hold the button). After this check out the lights on your router, lan light, internet ,power and modem should be solid.Else you can call the customer service number on the product box, they will assit you very well,ITS A TOLL FREE NUMBER.

SOURCE: setting up linksys wireless router with motorola 2210 dsl modem

One thing that isn't mentioned anywhere is the modem has to be in bridge mode. I was told this by a Linksys tech after doing all that was documented in the references article. I contacted my internet provider and they told me how to set the modem to bridge mode. This corrected the PPPoE error.

SOURCE: 2wire 2701HG-B got red light on power & green light on wireless

Issue that you have mentioned its very common among 2Wire modems. Most of the cases we have diagnosed Modem usually OK but the AC Adapter, AC adapter somehow comes from 3rd party with low quality production. Due to its circuit design internal heat dries up the DC output capacitors. So DC output comes up with ripple and it cause modem to not work properly. You may change the AC adapter or you can change its Capacitors. Same rate AC adapters will work fine. Just make sure polarization is right.
If Issue continues you may post for further diagnosis

Good Luck

After installing your disk suppose to be you should reset the configuration of your DSL 2740B so that it will restore back to the main configuration of the system. (to reset your DSL 2740B try to look for a small button on it. then press according to standards then your done. Good luck and i hope this steps will help you accurately. God Bless.

Troubleshooting DSL Modems


Ever look at your DSL Modem and wonder what all those lights mean? Why do some flash, while others remain solid? What if your lights are different colors? How do you tell if your DSL Modem is working correctly?<br /> <br /> Each light on your DSL Modem represents a function. The light is an indication of whether that function is working properly. Sometimes the placement and title of each function can vary by modem manufacturer, but they are pretty standard in interpetation. If you look closely your modem, you might find that each function is labeled in small print to help identify them.<br /> <br /> A standard DSL Modem has a light for power, internet, ethernet, link and wireless connection. A healthy DSL Modem will have a steady green light that does not blink or flutter for all features other than internet, ethernet and wireless. A flashing or fluttering light indicates movement and useage. When you are connected to your DSL Modem wireless, the light for this feature will blink indicating a connection and/or active useage. If the internet connection is working properly the color of the light will be green. If the connection is working but experincing a problem the light can turn to yellow or orange. If the connection fails, the light on the DSL Modem can be red or absent depending on the problem causing the trouble. If your service is turned off by the provider, more than likely the light will be "off".<br /> <br /> If your lights turn a different color, are absent or your internet connection fails try power cycling your modem before reporting the trouble to your provider. Power cycling helps the DSL Modem to reset its connection and repair your internet services.<br /> <br /> If you are using a DSL Modem alone to connect to the internet (no additional router) you can power cycle it by first turning off your computer and then unplug the modem itself from the power source at the wall. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then plug it back into the power source and wait for the warm up to finish before rebooting the pc.<br /> <br /> The DSL Modem should go through the normal warm up procedures of blinking lights, making them all stable and solid green ect. You will know when its finished warming up when the features are set at solid green (other than eithernet, internet and wireless connection as explained above). When the modem finished the warm up, reboot your computer and check your internet connection.<br /> <br /> Power cycling your DSL Modem can help keep your connection healthy and running at optimal speeds.<br />

PK5001 solid red DSL light


The trick I found for this is amazingly simple. Take the phone line out from your DSL modem and plug your phone line temporarily into an antique regular telephone for a second, check that it has a dial tone, and plug it back into your DSL modem. Your red light should go green in a minute after plugging the phone line back in. If you leave your computer idle too long, I think the phone company senses no activity and kills the connection after a few dead minutes, and the signal gets booted into some electronic alley. Also put tinfoil over your splice connectors as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

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.

Hello, I keep loosing internet connection, how can I tell if there is a problem with the modem?


try to check the status of the lights on your modem. Try to check the light in globe icon, that is the icon for your Internet status, if is GREEN it mean to say that it has connection. When it turns to RED, check the DSL light if it is in SOLID GREEN, When it blinks try to check it with your Service provider.

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.

Setup of d link dsl-2740b on my computer


the dsl connection is your broadband signal. check the router box. if the dsl light is off or flashing on the front, the setup will not work. this light needs to be solid. remove all devices from telephone sockets in your house, connect just one filter and your new router to it. check the dsl signal, if the light is solid green. the problem is with the physical setup in your house. If the dsl light still flashes contact your isp or broadband supplier.

Westwall modem Internet is solid red light


If the internet light is red, it means that the modem cannot get an ip connection from the ISP.

If your ISP has a PPPOE connection, most likely, the PPPOE password is not correct.

To ensure your settings, access the modem through a web browser. In the address bar, type 192.168.1.1.

Default Username: admin
Default Password: password

If this doesn't work, try admin for the username and password. If still doesn't work, you will need to reset the modem. Just hold the reset button for 30 seconds. Then turn it off for 1 minute.

Try again to access the modem, under Configuration, click Edit beside My Connection. Type your ISP username and password then Save.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

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
