    I have had the same problem for 3 days now. I called AT&T and they told me I need to purchase a new Modem from them for around $70 since mine is just over 1 year old and my warranty has run out. I think its the power cord and not the modem becasue now when I unplug the cord and plug it back in, the modem power light only lights up for a scond then I get no lights.

I am having the same problem now. It occurs when my laptop attempts to connect. I just got back from Canada and I'm wondering if there's something different with my wireless connection that interupts my 2wire gateway. My gate way is working now, but only after I shut off my laptop and let it sit for 45mins.

When the DSL light Does this it is not able to keep a connection to your ISP. With DSL there are many things that can cause something like this to occur. If you get DSL with phone service and if you have static on your phone line, it can cause this problems. Like what was mentioned, are your PHONES filtered. YOu can pick up DSL phone filters from anyware. Or if you would like to stay in house call your ISP they should also beable to provide them to you as well. If you are still having problems, then call your ISP because this could mean other things that can only be fix on there end.

If your DSL light goes green solid to red check to make sure all your phones are filtered. Make sure your not filtering your 2Wire.

When connecting 2wire wireless dsl light and internet light both stay red, unless i remove the dsl line from the dual filter then light turns green, but either way my Lap top does not respond and says no...


It's possible that the filter could be defective, and it's possible that the telephone line could be interfering with the dsl or signal. Once you have established a good connection, and you now have a green dsl light, you can update the username and password by launching into your modem with the following ip address: 192.168.1.254. Type this on the address bar of your internet explorer. Once you're inside the modem, click on Broadband Link and click Advanced Settings. Update the username and password that which could be you're email address with AT&T and Network password which is provided by your ISP as well. That should get you connected .

Hi I have a 2700hg-b modem router. the dsl light flashes green then turns solid red. I know it is fried, but the circuit board looks good. I am willing to pay shipping to recycle it. is there anyone that...


Hi...
The DSL light if it flashes in green, then it says it is trying to establish a connection with ISP...
Changes to red says "failed to establish the connection"...

The DSL light usually flashes green if there is a lot of noise in your telephone line...so it is also advised to do a line test for your connection...

2701HG-B


Hi. I will not repeat the check the phone line and resetting comments as it's now redundant.

I always have a spare modem as a line tester.

I've seen several 2700HG-B 2wire modem/routers burn out and every single time it's the DSL signal or modem portion that is burnt out. Even if you have two or three phone line surge protectors these 2700s are prone to shorting out unless you have a direct signal splitter DSL setup.

Here are a few things you can try to confirm if the 2700 is no longer functional on the DSL signal light problem.

#1: Turn on (plug in) your 2700 without the phone line plugged in and wait. If the DSL starts flashing red then there is a hardware problem in the modem/router.

#2: Plug the phone line into the 2700 while the dsl light is flashing red. It might take about 3 seconds however it should start to flash green and let it flash for about (usually) three minutes. If it turns red then the 2700 is indeed damaged.

#3: If you can enter into your modem using the http://2wire... and check the connection status. The first two status lines should read attempting to connect and no connection.
