    I too have the power light as red when it should be green. My internet light does not come on at all - not even flashing. I am having to use my speed touch modem to connect to try and sort it. all the cables work for that. I have tried unplugging everything and starting again and turning off the computer - Mac G4 OS 10.3.9

If its solid red its possible that there is something wrong either with the firmware of the device or it's already faulty. Aside from rebooting your router, you can also reset it for 15-20 sec and check if the power light will be green again. Doing the reset will erase all of the setting you have set on the router. In case after a couple of reset and the router still has a red power light then you can call your router manufacturer if they have other options or if you really need to get a new router.

Check for the user name and the password for the connectivity. Internet light red only means either the user name or the password is incorrect. Try entering the password and try again it should help.

Red power light


You need to hard reset your 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.
If this didnt work. You need to replace your modem.

Flashing red power light


Try the following steps:
1. Disconnect the modem's power adapter.

2. Reinsert the power adapter directly into the wall socket.

3.Remove any power strips or surge protectors temporarily to ensure that these items are not preventing the modem proper operation. Note: Make sure that you are using the power adapter that came with your modem.

4. Plug the power adapter into a different wall socket in another room.

5. Press the reset and hold the reset button for 1 minute. Then turn it off for 1 minute, and then turn it back on.

6. If the power light is still red, then you will need to get a replacement.

I have the Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem, trouble using software


You may check the following:

1. Make sure to plug the power cube into a power strip or wall outlet and then plug the power cube's other end into the modem's power (PWR) jack.

2. You should only use the power cube with the Zoom X6. Other power cubes may damage your hardware.

3. Try another wall outlet.

4. Reset the modem. Use a paper clip and insert it into the RESET pinhole in the modem's back panel and press it 3 times. Then turn off the modem for a minute and turn it back on. Check if the power light will turn solid green.

5. Possible defective modem.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Will not turn on. The power light was red, I unplugged the modem and plugged back in. No power light now


Try plugging the modem into an outlet in a diff room, you just need the modem and the power adapter that came with it.

You might also want to try to reset the modem, it usually has a small recessed reset button that you'll need a pen to push in.

If that still did not do the trick then you'll need to replace the modem.
