This would indicate a problem with the cable connection, modem,or your ISP

Try replace the cable that comes from the RF connector to the wall outlet (use a good quality one)

Also if you have ANY form of splitter / divider in that line that was not supplied by your ISP for splitting a modem signal then remove it.

Check the output of the power supply for the modem if the psu is faulty then replace with a universal adaptor that can supply both the correct voltage and current (they are usually listed on the original psu eg. 9V 500mA)

DO NOT use any psu that cannot meet those two numbers a 300mA supply will not be suitable but one that is slightly higher eg. 650mA will.

If you still have problems then contact your ISP for a replacement.

Online light blinkin in motorola sb4200


1- Disconnect the power at the back of the modem.
2- Disconnect the internet cable at the back of the modem (the cable from the wall to the modem).
3- Wait at least 2 minutes.
4- Connect the internet cable back.
5- Connect the power cable back.
6- The lights on the front of the modem should start turning on one at a time; the top one first, the second one next...

If the on-line light still blinks, you might want to repeat the steps above after shutting down your computer. Turn on your computer if the on line light is OK (not blinking).

If all fails, call your internet service provider (ISP) to see if the service itself is down for maintenance, or if there is a problem with high-speed internet in your area.

If you have a router, you might want to power it off before trying the steps above. Turn it back on when the on line light is OK.

Usually, I call my neighbor who has the same ISP to see if their internet is down, before I call the ISP company.

Hope that helps.

Modem light keeps blinking Have tried resetting. Restoring to default settings. If I hook the computer directly to the time warner modem I can acces the internet fine. Thanks


If the modem light keeps blinking, it means that the router hasn't been configured yet. Also, rarely, it can be an issue with WAN port/modem port on the router or the ethernet cable connecting the modem to router or finally, modem may not be working as its not applicable in this case(as you said).
How to configure the router for Time Warner?
1.Connect comp.--(gray port) router (yellow port)--modem
2.On the computer, open the router page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of browser
3.Under Internet Settings, change the connection type as Dynamic.
4.On the far left column, click on "MAC address" under Internet WAN.
5.Click on clone and apply changes and finally check Internet status
6.If internet status > Not connected, we need to do a network power cycle
7.For this, unplug the power from router, then from modem, then unplug the coaxial cable from cable modem.
8. Wait for 10 sec, then connect the coaxial cable, then connect power to modem, wait for lights on modem to get steady, then finally, plug in the power to router.
Now, you may see proper lights lit on the router.
All my best wishes for a fast internet service through the router.

For any advanced help, revert asap!
Thanks and regards,
Arvind

Only internet light is blinking


According to the user guide, the modem is trying to connect to the isp. If it is continually blinking, check all your cables. Once you are satisfied all cables are properly connect contact the isp to find out if there is an outage in your area and if not they can help you.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

Assistance with blinking light on my DSL modem


First thing to do is unplug your DSL modem and leave it unplugged for about a minute then plug it back in and see if problem is corrected. If not you should contact your ISP tech support. You could have a bad line from the phone company or bad connection in your house. Also if you have filters installed on your other phones you can have a bad filter that is causing interference and keeping yoiur DSL from working properly. You should go to "Start" > "Run" and type cmd and hit "Enter"
In the command window type ping google.com -t (Enter) This will start a continual ping. If you are getting ping times exceeding 70 - 120 ms that could be a sign your DSL is not functioning properly or if you get packet loss. That is when the ping time doesn't return a time periodically.

Cable light blincs for a while then stops blinking and goes solid


Hi,
This could be a problem with your ISP or the modem itself. Try calling your ISP and explain to them what is happening. They can test your connection.

PCX2600 cable modem Comcast problems


Hi,
Thanks.
If you buy the new modem, make sure that you can return it if that's not the problem. Also, explain to Comcast what the problem is and that it happens on both computers. It could be a poor connection on the cable wire that goes into your home.

I had a similar problem and my DSL and Verizon found that the squirrels found my telephone wire rather tasty and ate through most of it..thus causing the bad connection.

Good Luck,
Hank
