I had this problem yesterday. I called my ISP and they said the red light is not good. They said to me I have to buy a new router. i have tried turning it on and off and nothing works. So unfortunatley I think it means u and I have to buy a new router. By the way I was on the internet and then suddenly it disconnected. This was the first time I noticed the red light on the router.

Re: power light red
Hi! before u buy a router try to press the reset button on the back of the router for 10sec, the power of the router shud be on and after that unplug it for 15secs.. then plug it back in..if there is no change on the lights try to download the firmware of your router from dlink website.. this will fix the concern but if not then this is the time that u have to buy a new router.. try this possible option first.. sometimes the firmware from the router is corrupted..

Unplug the ISP modem completely, power, and cable. There might be a recycle (a quick push) on the modem as well. Some modems have a battery backup and will stay lit, if not connect the power, reboot and then connect the cable. The modem may take a while to fully reload after reconnecting. Then do the same with the router. Only do a quick push. Holding it in will clear custom settings on the router.
You should have green on both the modem and the router now. If not you have this to inform the ISP of your troubleshooting. GL
Red light goes for defective modem if your 2wire is still in warranty then i would suggest calling your OEM/ISP... or if your under a certain package call your internet service provider... one thing might work though but still a risk you may try looking for a PSP(portable playstation) powercode it sometimes works with it... if you got them from AT&T you can buy the power cord alone... just act aggravated that does the trick most of the time or ask for a supervisor... i should know I worked with them for 2yrs as a tech support if your with AT&T try calling this number AT&T ' Yahoo! High speed Internet Call +1 877 722 3755 (877-SBC-DSL5)
i do believe that you got that router from your internet provider? what i can suggest is have them replace the modem because it's not normal for that modem to cut your connection more often. call your isp now.
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 remedy for it.
1st : Buy a new adaptor if available or sold seperately 2nd: call ur ISP to have it replaced if ur still under some contract term or if the modem is still under warranty. usually 1year warranty 3rd : you can buy ur own ADSL2+ modem from supporting outlets . Make sure ur isp supports this modem.
Or u can always contact the vendor of 2WIRE in your location. They might be able to assist u in adaptors replacing issues.
I would suggest calling ur isp first and enquire. :)

How long have you had your router and how well is it maintained and well vented? Even the most expensive routers need these two things consistently. Failure in doing this may result in a shorter life span than normal. My guess without actually being there is that it's time to try a new one. If you get the same problem with the new router, take it back immediately and call your ISP for service. It could be possible that there is some phone work being done in the area, and you just happen to be a victim!
