Sounds like a bad power supply or ethernet card. You could try pulling out the ethernet card and then see if it boots up. If no boot, I'd suspect the power supply is bad and needs replacing. If it boots up, replace the ethernet card. Be sure you are touching metal at all times when working inside the case.

How do i fix after modem reset


Basically, you unplug all of the Netgear Xe104 units, wait a minute, then plug the one nearest to the Router back into a wall socket first. Wait a few seconds then plug in a second Xe104 and give it a minute to "talk" to the first unit. Then plug other Xe104's in one at a time. Below you'll find the official troubleshooting steps which you should read carefully if the basic steps above do not resolve the problem.
Also, i should tell you that Powerline adapters such as yours have improved greatly in the last few years, and you can buy a pair of new ones that are very, very much faster than yours for a very modest cost. For example, TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT
or NETGEAR Powerline 500 1-Port Starter Kit (XAVB5201) or
ZyXEL PLA4225 4-Port 500 Mbps Powerline Gigabit

Power Light Not On Make sure that, if power to the AC power outlet is controlled by a wall switch, the wall switch is in the on position. Verify that the wall socket is live by disconnecting the XE104 85 Mbps Wall-Plugged Ethernet Switch and plugging in some other electrical product, such as a lamp or a hairdryer. If the error persists and you have confirmed the power outlet you are using is live, you have a hardware problem and should contact technical support.
HomePlug Light Not On If the power light is on but the HomePlug light is not, check the following: • Make sure that power is being provided to more than one PowerLine device. Another PowerLine device must be installed for successful communication across the PowerLine. • Verify that the network password is the same on all devices in the PowerLine network.
Ethernet Light is Off • Make sure that the Ethernet cable is plugged in properly at both ends. • Be sure you are using the correct cable on the router that the first XE104 is connected to. When connecting the router's Internet port to a cable or DSL modem, use the cable that was supplied with the cable or DSL modem. This cable could be a standard straight-through Ethernet cable or an Ethernet crossover cable. • On attached Ethernet device or network adapter card, check that the Link light is

Ethernet lights not lighting


Make sure your ethernet cable is not damaged in any way. If you have a secondary ethernet cable somewhere around your house then try it with that. Ethernet lights light up only when there is a power signal coming from either side of the cable. Most likely one of the wires inside the cable got damaged and is not letting the router know that it has something plugged into it.

If you dont have a secondary ethernet cable then switch the cable that comes out of your internet modem into the router with the suspect cable and see if you get a internet light on your router. You can further test this by directly plugging into your computer and see if it gives you a connection of some sort. If your computer continues to say that there is no network cable plugged in then you have a bad cable.

1
Choose your equipment wisely. There are many types of wireless routers, and they are not all created equal. Some of the lower end wireless routers are very basic, and will limit your home network to speed of 56 megabits per second (Mbps.) This is really not a very fast speed. If your access points will be very far apart, consider getting a router with ultra-range abilities, or a dual-band router. Also, while you're at the store, be sure to pick up one wireless access point for each computer you intend to connect to your network.

2
Remove your DSL or cable modem from the power supply.

3
Remove the Ethernet cable which connects your DSL or cable modem to your computer from the computer, but leave it plugged into the back of your modem. This cable looks something like a phone cord on the ends, but with much larger connectors and a larger, round cable. Do not remove the phone cord from the modem which is plugged into the telephone jack on your wall.

4
Connect the loose end of the Ethernet cable to the internet port on the back of your router. This port should be clearly marked, and will probably be a different color than the other ports.

5
Reconnect your modem to the power source. To protect it, plug it into the same surge protector which guards your computer.

6
Plug the Ethernet cable which came with your router into the Ethernet connector on the network card on the back of your computer. Then plug the other end into one of the Ethernet network ports on the back of the router.

7
Plug the router's power cord into the power supply. This device should also be protected by a surge protector. If you run out of plugs, it is well worth ten or twenty dollars to invest in a second surge protector.

8
Check the lights on the front or top of your router. The power light should be on, as well as the internet light, the wireless light, the security light, and a light for one of your Ethernet network connections. Check to see if any lights are off, flashing, or red or amber in color. This will indicate that the router is having a problem. If any lights are not on as they should be, check your cable connections to ensure that they are securely connected. Repeat the setup steps if necessary.

9
Install the software provided by your wireless router's manufacturer.
This is it you are done
Thanks .

You have a 5-port router. The 5th port can be used either as an "uplink" port (with a cross-over Ethernet cable) or as a "data" port (with a straight-though Ethernet cable).

You've not provided enough details to trouble-shoot the "staying online" problem, i.e., IP-addresses of each of the connected computers/printers, whether you're using CAT3 or CAT5 or CAT5E cables, whether you've tried different Ethernet cables, and whether the router is connected into a UPS that provides "smooth" power.

IM having trouble connecting my wifes new acer to the internet using an ethernet cable


A couple of things to check. make sure you are using a good cable. Either try the cable on another PC or use a cable that is working on another pc. When you plug in the cable do the lights at the ethernet jack light up and also does the coorsponding light on the router light up when you it into the pc. IF do not have any lights, you can check to make sure the PC sees the ethernet adapter, you might also check in the BIOS to make sure the ethernet adapter is not disabled. If none of this helps, and since the PC is new, I would contact Acer Warranty support for assistance.

When I connect the ethernet cable to my tower, I gave an orange light. What could be causing this to happen?


What Orange light are you refering to? You have an orange and green LED on the block of the Ethernet connecter, if the cable is plugged into the plug and the other end is terminated into another deive such as a modem,bridge,router or switch the orange light(led) should come on as that indicates a valdi link hence being called the link light, the green light(led) indicates data being received or transmitted. If orange flash with sparks(bad) from the plug it means there is power on the cable..very bad as this could be due to the ethernet card that is faulty or the device on the other end of the cable is faulty.
