Question about Actiontec AOL DSL MODEM BY (HOMEDSL)
Wireless capable modems are touchy, Put tinfoil over your splice connectors as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

--If the Power light is flashing red thanits definately problem with the Actiontec Router --As you have checked with different power source, the possibility of bad power source is no more --May be due to some voltage fluctuation the modem is gone bad.

If the DSL light is blinking it means that there is no DSL carrier signal to your modem. Check the phone line and make sure you have no open lines and filters are on all the devices hooked up to your phone system except your modem. You can check for an open line by hooking up a phone to the phone line going into your modem and listen for a dial tone.
