Solid red power light

I have a 2wire wireless router and ive had a bit more than a year with it. Yesterday, the all the lights went off and the power light went solid red. I tried unplugging it then plugging it back in, but it was still solid red. In my third try, it didnt light up at all. Also, I tried in different parts of the house, but the power light was still red and the others didnt light up, except the wireless. How can i fix this?

    I have the same problem. I switched from Bell to Teksavvy & think Bell is zapping all 2 wire modems to get back at them. Tried zohail's suggestion and didn't work. Likely hardware failure due to Bell's vindictiveness!!

I have a ATT 2wire modem and all lights are solid green except the wireless light and if theirs too much activity online then it shuts all the other lights off except the power light


Wireless is supposed to blink. Check to see if the power outlet might be giving out. If not, then you might have to replace the router.

How to install to att 2wire 2701hgb modem router


Plug power cord into back of modem and then into an electrical outlet. At this point you should see the lights on the front of the modem beginning to come on.


Check the front of the modem for a solid green DSL light. If the light is still blinking, allow a few more moments before proceeding to step 5. A blinking DSL light indicates a break in the network and will require the help of your service provider if it does not turn solid green.


Open your internet browser and type the default gateway into address bar. The default gateway will be provided by your service provider. Newer model 2Wire modems automatically direct you to the installation instructions when the browser is opened.


Click on "Run System Setup Wizard" in the lower right-hand corner. It may require the system password. This password will be provided by your service provider.


Select your timezone and click 'Next.'


Enter your ISP provided login information and click 'Next'. This should authenticate your credentials on the network and complete the installation.

Earlier today I had a Red Power light and only a green wireless light. Now I have no lights when I plug in the 2wire router / modem. Is the equipment dead or is there something I can do besides replace...


Try the following steps:
1. Disconnect the 2wire gateway power adapter.

2. Reinsert the power adapter directly into the wall socket.

3.Remove any power strips or surge protectors temporarily to ensure that these items are not preventing the 2wire gateway proper operation.Note: Make sure that you are using the power adapter that came with your 2wire gateway.

4. Plug the power adapter into a different wall socket in another room.

5. Press the red factory reset button if available.

6. If the power light is still red, then you will need to replace the 2wire gateway.

What does it mean when there is a solid red Power light on the ATT 2wire DSL wireless router?


it means 2 things. 1st it could be the adapter because theres still power to it and 2nd is the 2wire router is already defective. if its possible for you to bring the 2wire with the adapter to any computer store or to att store and have them plug a new adapter on it . or if you have available 5volts adapter you can try to check if power will be solid green using diff adapter definitely its the adapter but if you have tried it but power will flash green or red the modem is dead. powerlight of any router should stay solid green no matter what happen.
have it checked carefully so you dont need to spend $82 for the 2wire, adapter is $10 only..

Goodluck!

My dsl light is on green but my power light is on red. After a while no lights are on. My router is a 2wire that's about a year old


These 2Wire devices are known to have their wall-wart weaken over time. Although you can measure the proper voltage coming from the wall-wart, when you load it with the DSL modem, the actual voltage drops giving you the red power light. The green DSL light may or may not be accurate while the DSL modem is not getting the power it needs. Look online or go to a store like Radio Shack for a replacement wall wart.

2wire modem power light red


Its Due to AC adapter capacitors. Capators dry out after certain usage that cause unfiltered output of DC. Add about 2 or 3 pieces of 1000uF capacitor on DC way issue will be resolved. Or simple change the capacitors in AC adapter or change the AC adapter to new one.

2Wire 473 router problem


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.
