There's very little you can do. There's a design defect in the 4100/5100 where the power switch gets flaky and eventually the modem will not stay on anymore. Chalk that up to substandard Chinese quality control.Best thing to do is get another modem and leave the switch ON. Turn the power off from a power strip.

1: unplug all the cords to the modem
2: press the reset button from the back of it
3: leave it for about 5 minutes to drain off the static charge
4: plug it only to power source to see if the power lights up
5: if does'nt don't waste your time on it, its bad and if it was provided to you by your internet service provider get it replaced for free.
6: if you bought it yourself check for warranty generally modems have lifetime warranty

The internet light is off all others green on the 5100 modem. Also, very slow internet and hard to go to various webpages. Will this correct itself over time or is there a quick fix?


You can try resetting the modem to factory condition.
Turn off the modem from power
Disconnect the modem from the computer
Turn on the modem
Press the reset button using a pointed object, (a toothpick or a pencil)
Wait for all the lights to flash green then release the button
Reboot your computer
Connect the modem to your computer

Everything should work fine.

If the problem persists contact the service provider.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

Need to change NAT settings for xbox live


Hey, I've had the same problem too with my NAT but it said medium instead of restricted. I havent tried this yet cause I'm at work but you restart your router by just inpluggin the power cord and waiting 20 seconds than trying again.

Hope that works!
