Good day sir/maam, the orange led indicates a speed of 10 mbps, which means that either the internet becomes slow or your connected to a hub with 10 mbps. better swap a new modem card, anyway its cheap. or get a DSL.hope this helps.

Why is my embarq 660 series DSL modem box's 1st


Telephone your Internet Service Provider, and have them check that you've paid your monthly fees, and that the DSL-modem at "their" end of your telephone-circuit has not failed.

Try a different DSL-modem, to see if your particular modem has "died".

Check the 2-strand or 4-strand wire from the DSL-modem to the wall-outlet, to make sure that it is properly connected.

Try a different 4-strand wire.

No because dsl light should be solid green light. You need to contact your ISP to check if there is a problem on the network.

Problem with gateway modem.Power light is red wireless light is green,Dsl and Ethernet lights are not on.I have turned everything off and back on.I have disconnected everything and put it back.Nothing...


You need to hard reset the 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.
