If the red light is your DSL light it means you have a line fault or no internet connection. Contact your provider

If the red light is your broadband / internet light - it means you are not logged on properly. Chck your username and password are correct - especially after the reset!

Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem User Guide
The user guide for your Motorola Surfboard cable modem can mean the difference between knowing how to locate and diagnose problems with your connection or staring angrily into a maze of blinking lights.

The user guide provides information on properly setting up your cable modem, understanding the indicator lights and troubleshooting problems before you have to call your Internet Service Provider.Connecting Your Modem


Your Motorola Surfboard cable modem must be connected to your home's coaxial cable connection.
Connect the coaxial cable from your cable outlet into the "Input" jack on your cable modem.

If your modem is wireless, it will connect to any computers and wireless devices in your home through the wireless signal sent from the modem.

Wired Internet connections require that you use an Ethernet cable to connect your cable modem to any supported computers and devices.
Understanding the Front Panel

The front panel of your modem is your key to understanding the status of your cable modem.

The front panel features "Power," "Send," "Receive," "Online" and "Link" lights, each of which displays information about your modem.

The "Power" button will display a solid green light when operating normally and will turn off when there is a problem with the power supply.

The "Send" and "Receive" lights will transmit a solid green or blue color when data is being normally transmitted through your modem and will blink when it the modem is scanning for an upstream or downstream connection.

A solid green "Online" light indicates that you are connected to your Internet Service Provider, while no light indicates that the Internet connection in your home is experiencing problems.

A yellow "Link" light indicates that a computer is connected to your modem with an Ethernet connection while a blue light indicates that a high-speed Ethernet connection is being utilized through the modem.

Configuring TCP/IP

The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol provides the basic foundation for establishing a local network and a connection to the Internet. The TCP/IP can be configured in the "Control Panel" of your Windows computer. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" from the control panel and double-click the "Manage network connections" option. Right-click the network connection displayed and select "Properties," then select Internet Protocol Version 4 and open the TCP/IP properties menu. Select "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server address automatically" from the TCP/IP properties menu and click "Ok" to save your TCP/IP settings.
Troubleshooting


Many technical issues with your cable modem can be resolved by power cycling your modem and the computers and devices connected to it.

To power cycle your modem, unplug it from the power supply for 10 to 15 seconds and reconnect it to the power supply.

Restart all of your connected computers and devices while your modem is power cycling. Problems with the "Send" and "Receive" functions can be the result of a poor signal being sent to your cable modem. Tighten the coaxial cable connection to your modem and contact your internet service provider if problems persist.

The modem and the wireless router were configured previously to me moving in with a new computer. In the network and sharing center, windows 7, it says that the wireless network is connected, however,...


If you have network access, it is not likely your computer. Since you have a network connection, I would start troubleshooting with the modem by turning off the local network (unplug power from rear) then turning off the modem (same, unplug at rear) for about 20 seconds then repowering the modem. Wait until the modem lights have settled into their connected/ok state then replug the local router. This will in most cases solve your particular issue. Farmerbear at FixYa

UNABLE TO CONNECT WITH MY LAP TOP ON INTERNET HAVE FOUR LIGHTS ON AND FIFTH ONE FLASHING JUST STARTED YESTERDAY.


So that means its working well and connected to the ISP' server. What is your connection? Is it ADSL?
First make sure that all light have the color of green. If they are Flashing with color RED that means the property associated with the light is having a failure.
Here are the description of Colors and Lights.
Modem Light state: Unlit Flashing Red Flashing Green Steady Green
Cases:::
Power Light
Modem is not getting power - no light Modem has failed POST - Red Power is on - Steady Green
Ethernet (2nd Light)
No Ethernet link detected - No light Problem with ethernet port or cable - Flashing Green Modem has detected a successful link to a PC or router - Steady Green
DSL (3rd light)
ADSL sync signal is not detected - Red Modem is trying to synchronize. - Flashing Green Modem has ADSL sync and is ready for PPPoE session traffic - Steady Green.
Internet (4th light)
Modem has given up or isn't configured to initiate the PPPoE session - No Light PPPoE initiation has failed or PPPoE has been terminated. - Red Initiating a PPPoE session to Internet - Flashing Green. Modem is ready for Internet traffic - Steady Green.
Note: This light sometimes not working even if the connection initiated.
Activity
Normal DSL traffic flow - Flashing Green. Steady traffic flow - Steady Green.
Solving problems.
Case1: You have to connect your machine to the Modem Via the Network cable. Plug the other side of the cable to your Machine. (Not the modem port. Network card port.). Case2: You have to make sure that you have installed the Network Card drives. To check that you have to use Device Manager. Follow these steps. Hit Windows key with R In the "Run" box type devmgmt.msc In the right hand side check whether the network card is installed. If it has a yellow exclamation mark or a mark with red that means you haven't either installed or its having a device/driver problem.
Case3: If its fine then what you have to do is to check your network settings. Heres how: Since you haven't specified the Operating System I m including the Windows XP method here. Not much difference in other Operating Systems as well.
  • Get the Control Panel.
  • Go to Network and Internet Connections.
  • Go to Network Connections.
  • Check the Local Area Connection.
  • Right Click and check "Status".
  • If it says connected
  • Check the Duration and Speed(100 or 1000Mbps).
  • If the settings are fine go to "Support" Tab.
  • Check whether the Machine has received an IP Address. Which is often in the range of 192.168.254.xxx for Siemens Modems/Routers.
  • If you see an IP Address which starts from 169.xxx.xxx.xxx your network card was unable to pick an IP Address from the DHCP router which runs in the modem. (If you run a DHCP in the machine you have to configure to stop leasing IP Addresses to your machine from the Router/Modem. You can try the "Repair" button below and it will try to Release and Renew your IP. If it fail either you have a problem with your network card or Modem/Router (Could be the cable also).
  • If you still see the IP Address which starts with 192.168 the connection with your Modem is fine.
  • Next: Right Click on the Local Area Connection again.
  • Go to "Properties".
  • Double Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
  • Check the settings.
  • The settings should be "Obtain IP Addresses Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically". (But if you know the router's/Modem's IP Address you can configure it and you can give a "Static IP" to your PC as well. It must not be the Router's / Modem's IP and must be in th SAME SUBNET. If router uses 192.168.254.xxx you can assign it as 192.168.254.2)
  • Then Apply the Settings and go to the "Status" again and then click on "Details".
  • Except Wins Server all others must be populated with values in 192.168 range. Check the "Default Gateway" Setting. Its very important that you have pointed the machines Default Gateway to the Router/Modem.
  • Final Check:
  • Go to the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) again and click on "Advanced".
  • Check IP Settings (first tab) too make sure DHCP is enabled on you machine.
  • Go to "Options" tab and Check TCP/IP Filtering. Click on properties and make sure that the Filtering is not enabled. If it enabled make sure your network adapter Permits all routers traffic in to the machine.
By following these options will let you surf the internet.
Check for the behaviors of indicators as well.
Case 3 :Browser settings
In the Internet Explorer go to: Tools -> Internet Options ->Connections -> LAN Settings -> Its fine if any box is not checked. Or you can check the "Automatic Detection".
Last thing is If you have a Firewall or Antivirus Suite Please make sure that you are not blocking adapters and traffic/application. You can try to disable Windows Firewall and check whether it works as well.

Don't know how to hook up my router kids unpluged.


This is an easy fix. The back of the router has a single power jack and 5 jacks for network cables. 4 of the jacks are grouped together on one metal "plate" and are called LAN or "Local Area Network" jacks. The 5th jack is removed from the others slightly, and is by itself on its own metal "plate" closest to the antenna. This jack is called the WAN or "Wide Area Network" jack.

Disconnect the power cord if not already unplugged.

The WAN jack (closest to the antenna) should be connected to your DSL or cable modem output with a cable long enough to stretch between the two.

The LAN jacks should be connected to the computer(s) network jacks in your home that do not use a wireless connection.

Once everything is connected, turn on the DSL or cable modem (if not on already). After 30 seconds, power up the WGR614. After 30 seconds, you should see the power light on, the test light (a check mark) should be off, the wireless light (the antenna) may be on or off (depending if you configured it to be on before) and the internet light should be on or blinking (it's the icon next to the "1" light). If the internet light is off, check the WAN jack and cable back to the modem and make sure the modem is on.
After the internet light is on, turn on the wired computer(s). The 1, 2, 3, and 4 lights will flicker when computer(s) are on and connected to the 1, 2, 3 or 4 jack(s).


I hope this was helpful!

Power Light Is Red, Internet Light Is Green, Other Lights Off


Check cable connections.

Try unplugging router from power for five minutes.

If that does not work call Internet Service provider to check if there is a problem with their server.
