Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
I have a 2wire Gateway router and modem that's about 4 years old. I have it hard wired (ethernet) to a Dell computer Yesterday, it dropped a connection. When I checked it, I found the power indicator wasn't green, it was a steady red. I tried unplugging, hitting the reset and a few other things. Nothing works. Basically, I'm wondering if it's shot and I should give up?
Thanks for using fixya
The red light on power means that the diagnostic for the modem is on, and when this is on this means that the memory or another component of your modem is at fault. Usually this can be resolved through a firmware upgrade to be applied by 2wire, but note that 50% of the time, when the diagnostic light is on, the device is dead.
To have this issue resolved, you may refer to your ISP or 2wire, if it cannot be revived, the least they can do is provide a recommendation.

I agree with rkhan2mexico... mine did the exact same thing as jeffrey.
i dug thru all my electronic **** until i found an old HP handheld transformer that fit and plugged it in... and guess what? back online! thanks rkhan!

The problem is the power supply, the transformer is bad. Get a new Ac adapter and it will work fine. I have expoerience with 2 units.
