For mine, I just pulled out the battery for a few moments and the lights went normal, then put the battery back in. It's still normal. Figured that the battery light was the only one not flashing in unison with the others.

Good luck. :)

From my limited experience with this problem, the answer can be yes. If you cannot unplug the modem power plug and reattach it, and then make it "set up" and work, the problem is either a bad line feed or bad modem. The easiest thing to do is try another modem...that will verify if the line is good. If the line is bad, comcast has to fix it for free, to provide your service. It your modem is good, you won't have to replace it and buy another one(however, they may charge a service fee, I'm not sure if or how much- call them and check first). Hope this helps.

Comcast is my service provider and I have had an RCA DCM 245R modem for almost 10 years. Until recently it has worked fine. On an ever increasing basis I am losing internet connection and when I look at...


Hi,

It can be an issue with the modem or with the line. When the line drops the link then the modem shows only two lights. And, when you power cycle the modem (unplug and replug it) it establish the session again with the comcast.

So, i'll suggest you to get the line checked first and if comcast finds that line is working fine then get the modem replaced.

When connect the power I get all solid lights except for the Internet light. Reset does nothing. I got the Modem on Ebay from a past Comcast user. Any ideas? Is it a goner? Thanks... Darryl From Portland...


You have to notify comcast, to let them know you bought a new modem. Comcast uses a two way communications to all of there devices, and it is not setup on your new modem.

try shutting of your computer then shutting off the modem, the modems have batteries you might have to remove them theres usally a panel on the bottom, in the back you should have a wire for comcast cable and an ethernet chord telephone too if you have everything. also your modem could be broken, i had the same problem

My internet won't work on my new laptop.


First turn off you laptop. Second, go to your comcast cable modem unplug it from the wall and wait about 3mins. Now plug the comcast modem back it and wait for all the lights to come back (will take about 2-3mins). Now plug the yellow ethernet cable into your laptop if its not already and turn your laptop on. You should now have internet.

Also if you using a Comcast Surf Board modem be mindful of the standby button on top of the modem. You can tell your in standby mode if the standby light (bottom light) is amber. If it is press the standby button once to get out of standby mode.

hope that helps

--If the Power light is flashing red thanits definately problem with the Actiontec Router --As you have checked with different power source, the possibility of bad power source is no more --May be due to some voltage fluctuation the modem is gone bad.
