Try plugging the modem into an outlet in a diff room, you just need the modem and the power adapter that came with it.

You might also want to try to reset the modem, it usually has a small recessed reset button that you'll need a pen to push in.

If that still did not do the trick then you'll need to replace the modem.

Sounds like Radio Shack sold you a bad power adapter or an adapter that doesn't meet the power and current requirements of the modem. Bring the old power adapter and the new one back to Radio Shack and tell them to get you one like the old one.

How to setup xbox live


Hello there

No problem, in just a few steps you too will be online and ready to go.

Ethernet Cable

With your Xbox 360 turned off unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your Xbox.

Xbox 360 Power Cord

Next unplug the Xbox 360 power cord from the back of the Xbox 360.

Unplug ethernet cable and power cord from the modem. Wait for about 1 minute and then plug ethernet cable back into the modem.

Now you need to plug other end of the ethernet cable into the back of the Xbox 360.

Plug the modem power cord back into your modem , wait for lights to light up on your modem (this can take up to a minute).

The last step is to plug the Xbox power cord into the back of the Xbox, turn it on and you are ready to go.

Red power light


You need to hard reset your modem. By doing that, unplug the modem from the power outlet. Look at the back of the modem, you will see there a small red button. You need to press that button. You need to get a pin or pen to press that reset button. Press the reset button for 5 mins. Monitor the power light. It will change to orange light and it will restart. Once it restarted, you can release the reset button and wait for the lights to come up. Since you did the hard reset. You need to configure the modem with your username and password from your ISP.
You need to access the gui or firmware of your modem. If it ask for username and password. This is the time you need to contact your ISP. They will help you to configure the modem. Once they provided you the username and password ofr your modem. Write it down so you will have a copy and in case it happen again you know what to do. Username and password for the modem is different from the username and password for your internet. You also need to enter the username and password for the internet so you can use the internet. If you get a red light for the internet, that means the username and password is incorrect.
If this didnt work. You need to replace your modem.

We have just tried to set up a belkin N wireless router and the modem red light stays flashing. Therefore , we have not been able to connect with the wireless


If you follow these steps it should clear up your issue.

  1. Unplug power from your modem, router and computer (turn off computer). Check to make sure your modem does not have a back up battery in it.
  2. Plug the coax (cable) or phone line (dsl) into your modem
  3. Plug an ethernet cable from your modem to the router. Make sure it is plugged into the "internet" port.
  4. Turn the modem on and wait 40 seconds for the lights to come on and the system to boot up fully.
  5. When it is up, plug the power into the router. Wait another 40 seconds to a minute for all the lights to come on and be green.
If this does not help please let me know and we can move further with your support. Routers can sometimes be very sensitive.

Good Luck,

PROBLEMS WITH MODEM


well.as far as i know, it really depends with what red light it is.if you're pertaining to the RED light for power, then it's an issue with your power adapter.make sure it's getting the right volts from your outlet.if this is already done, try to plug the modem in different outlets esp. your kitchen and bathroom outlets. if same thing occur,your modem might be defective.

for ethernet light, if it is red, just make sure that your cable is properly plugged in, if yes, unplug the other end of it from the back of your computer and plug it on the other port of your modem,(what we're trying to do here is making sure that your cable is working fine)..the ethernet light must be green if it's ok but if it wont change,replace the cable with a new internet cable. this should solve the prob.

if the DSL/broadband link light is red,there might be an outage on your area. most of the time, if this is red, the next light wont lit or red as well.

hope this is helpful.
