There is no on/off switch. It only has a reset switch. It should get the power by connecting to the wall socket. Try connecting it to a different wall socket.

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

XE104 User Guide 4-2 Troubleshooting v1.0, September 2005

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

I used to have 5 computers hooked to a DLINK router (DI-707) for a LAN and the router hooked to a modem for internet. I changed IP and got a pk500 modem. I can plug 4 computers to the pk500 and get...


This might actually has nothing to do with the router itself, you may need to call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and let them know you have a new router. They may have to configure it themselves because some modems are not plug-and-play (which means when you get a new router, the modem doesn't automatically recognize the new router.) So, your best bet right now is to call your ISP and they will walk you through it. I faced a similar issue and finally got through by simply calling my ISP, calling the router's manufacturer may do nothing, at least it didn't for me.
Try this: Unplug all internet cords, unplug all power cords. Wait about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Connect your router to the modem with one internet line, into to the appropriate ports. Next, plug your modem into the power source, and let it run for approximately 4 minutes (or until all of the lights are on and it is ONLINE.) It varies per modem on when it is 100% online. Next, plug your router into the power source, and wait until it loads 100%. Then try plugging into one of your computers, not all, one, and preferably using Windows Operating systems because they detect internet more easily than Mac.
If all else fails, one more troubleshooting to do, and that is to plug your computer DIRECTLY from the modem to the computer via internet cord, bypassing the router. If you get internet from the modem, then it is supposed to work, the router could be the issue. If you are NOT getting the internet, then the modem is the issue.
Lastly, I really think calling your ISP would solve the issue all together. GOOD LUCK!

The trick about all this is that the software does not configure the computer, but the modem.
So once it has been configured through a computer then plugged to a router, any computer plugged to the said router will have access to the Internet.

The whole process of installing/configuring will happen if you replace the old modem and/or plug a new computer directly to the modem.

How do I disconnect and reconnect my modem?


This should be as easy as pulling the plug from the wall, waiting 30 seconds or so, and then plugging it back in.

No power for DI-524


Have you tried the reset feature, small button near the power port.

Hold it down for thirty seconds with the unit unplugged. If that doesn't work you may need to buy a new router as something may have failed some time ago and just not been noticed until it was turned off.

Try the reset, but I suspect whatever killed your modem likely killed the router at the same time.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris
