Actiontec (GS503AD3-01) Modem

Lights on my modem are flashing rapidly in unison. The power light is flashing red, connection light is blank, internet light is blank, and each of the four ethernet ports are flashing green. I have pressed the reset button the back of the modem, checked and rechecked all the connections, plugged the modem into an alternate power source...no change.

--If the Power light is flashing red thanits definately problem with the Actiontec Router --As you have checked with different power source, the possibility of bad power source is no more --May be due to some voltage fluctuation the modem is gone bad.

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 />

I restet my linsky wireless adapter and all i get is a flashing blue power light


The flashing blue light is absolutely normal!!! Please follow these steps to configure your computers to your wireless router
Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

Comcast is my service provider and I have had an RCA DCM 245R modem for almost 10 years. Until recently it has worked fine. On an ever increasing basis I am losing internet connection and when I look at...


Hi,

It can be an issue with the modem or with the line. When the line drops the link then the modem shows only two lights. And, when you power cycle the modem (unplug and replug it) it establish the session again with the comcast.

So, i'll suggest you to get the line checked first and if comcast finds that line is working fine then get the modem replaced.

All lights are flashing in unison. comcast says I need a new modem. Is this true?


From my limited experience with this problem, the answer can be yes. If you cannot unplug the modem power plug and reattach it, and then make it "set up" and work, the problem is either a bad line feed or bad modem. The easiest thing to do is try another modem...that will verify if the line is good. If the line is bad, comcast has to fix it for free, to provide your service. It your modem is good, you won't have to replace it and buy another one(however, they may charge a service fee, I'm not sure if or how much- call them and check first). Hope this helps.

When power switch is turned on the Power light is rapidly flashing & the 4 Ethernet lights are flashing. The box is Actiontec GT704wg


I do not have a solution to the problem. However, I am having the same problem. This morning the Actiontec GT704WG power and ethernet lights were rapidly flashing. The modem was non-functional. I could not even connect to the modem through the browser to see if I could find a problem.

The problem lasted a couple of hours. Then all of a sudden the modem started working again. I won't be able to tell if the problem recurs until I restart the modem. And if the problem does occur again, I won't be able to connect to the internet.

LIGHTS ON MODEM ARE FLASHING RAPIDLY, HAVE CHECKED POWER SUPPLY AND PUSHED RESET BUTTON, NO CHANGE


You will have to be a bit more clear on which lights on which model of modem is flashing rapidly.
Usually, as long as the internet works, the flashing lights are there to show that the modem is functioning properly and is currently sending packets, transmitting data, etc.
