SOURCE: Ethernet Light
the wireless light should flicker indicating it is sending a wireless signal out to a reciever.
If you have security for the wireless router so nobody else can connect without permission enable it or turn off the wireless signal if not using it.

Take the modem and plug it into a GFCI outlet. You can find one in the bathroom or the kitchen.
If the power light comes on solid green and the dsl comes on red then the modem is good. Was it plugged into a power strip by the computer? If so, plug it straight into a wall outlet.
If the power light comes on solid red then the modem has hardware failure. I would contact your ISP and have them replace it if it is still underwarranty.

Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at email@example.com

Hi der... well the issue your facing is simple to say ur power adaptor
is faulty. Usually its due to some electrical shorts or maybe some
heavy lightnings. You can always have a remedy for it.
1st : Buy a new adaptor.
2nd: call ur ISP to have it replaced if ur still under some contract term or if the modem is still under warranty.
3rd : you can buy ur own ADSL2+ modem from supporting outlets . Make sure ur isp supports this modem.
This are the solutions for ur problem pal.. So make a wise decision.. Any needs and help post it to FixYa..ANd the experts here will fix ya..!

The Wireless light only stays solid on the 2Wire HG-B Gateway when there is something keeping a wireless connection to it. IF there is nothing connected wirelessly, it will not stay on.
Also another note, I had a problem with my MAC and my Windows VISTA 64 BIT Laptop not being able to keep a stable connection with the default wireless username and password.
To get into the 2wire: Open a Internet window Address Bar 192.168.1.254 Home network "At the top of the page" then click on wireless settings "Also at the top of the page" Then you are in the wireless config to change the information.
What i had to do is change the wireless authentication to WPA-PSK and change the wireless password (Use a 10 digit Number as the pass-code, a phone # would be a good suggestion) , what you also need to do is change the name of the network along with the channel of the wireless, it helps if you take it all the way up to 11. Then you should be smooth sailing all the way. :-)
