They shouldn't become solid. Most lights blink when there is a communication between the devices. It's never a solid connection light.

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.

2wire2701hg-b lights: power-on, ethernet-off, wireless-blink steady, dsl-on, internet-on, dsl line ok


If ethernet light is the only one that's not on, that means there is no device that is connected hardwired to the router.

Http://192.168.1.254/ has been put into my home page browser but nothing happens


IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.254 is the default gateway of an AT&T modem router (RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY) (2WIRE). for this ip address should be able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem and if not your computer is connected to a different network.

1) try connecting the computer to the 2wire RG using a ETHERNET cable (if your connected via wireless)
2) make sure that the DSL light is solid and not blinking.
3) if your computer already connected by a ETHERNET cable, try accessing the same ip address if your able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem it means that your computer will be able to connect to the internet.
4) try this also:
this for internet explorer:
click tools - connections - LAN settings
( if there's a tick mark on PROXY SERVER remove it )
if you do have tick mark on PROXY SERVER then your computer have a virus, because virus can put a tick on PROXY SERVER without you noticing it.
after removing the tick you will be able to connect to the internet again.

My 2wire has the power light red and the ethernet green and th wireless solid green and the dsl off and the internet off....what can i do


I had the same problem on the Gateway 2701HG-B supplied from ATT for use with their DSL service. From searching the web, I learned these variety of modems apparently have an expiration date on the power cord at about 18 mos to 2 years. Mine is almost exactly at 2 yrs.

I replaced the power cord and now it works fine. You can order the OEM replacement from att e-store or try Radio Shack for a universal cord.

Ethernet light is green but continuously blinks is there a problem with modem or ethernet cable?


no, a green light means there is a connection with the network and dns server (gateway to the internet) information is sent allow this network in bundles called packets. Each time a packet is sent the green light blinks.....sometimes when many packets are being sent in succession the light will appear solid. so i wouldnt worry, the green lights on your router and computer are normal and you should become concerned if these lights turn yellow or stop blinking completely.
Good Luck and Please Rate This Post!!!! :D

My ethernet keeps on blinking and the wireless has no light,


If the wireless light does not come on at all,
on the working computer, type (gateway.2wire.net) in internet explorer, on the top, click on "Home Network".
on the right under "Status at a Glance", make sure the "Disable" button is showing besides "Wireless", but dont click it.
But If yours says "Enable", click on it.

If that does not work, make sure that you are connecting to the right network. the name will be shown in the same section as above. The password is on the bottom of the modem/router on the sticker.
