N300 router has a steady orange blinking light


The blinking orange power light suggests that there is a problem with your modem. The modem should be plugged into the top ethernet port of your router. Try turning off your modem for 10 seconds and then turning it back on.

Troubleshooting DSL Modems


Ever look at your DSL Modem and wonder what all those lights mean? Why do some flash, while others remain solid? What if your lights are different colors? How do you tell if your DSL Modem is working correctly?<br /> <br /> Each light on your DSL Modem represents a function. The light is an indication of whether that function is working properly. Sometimes the placement and title of each function can vary by modem manufacturer, but they are pretty standard in interpetation. If you look closely your modem, you might find that each function is labeled in small print to help identify them.<br /> <br /> A standard DSL Modem has a light for power, internet, ethernet, link and wireless connection. A healthy DSL Modem will have a steady green light that does not blink or flutter for all features other than internet, ethernet and wireless. A flashing or fluttering light indicates movement and useage. When you are connected to your DSL Modem wireless, the light for this feature will blink indicating a connection and/or active useage. If the internet connection is working properly the color of the light will be green. If the connection is working but experincing a problem the light can turn to yellow or orange. If the connection fails, the light on the DSL Modem can be red or absent depending on the problem causing the trouble. If your service is turned off by the provider, more than likely the light will be "off".<br /> <br /> If your lights turn a different color, are absent or your internet connection fails try power cycling your modem before reporting the trouble to your provider. Power cycling helps the DSL Modem to reset its connection and repair your internet services.<br /> <br /> If you are using a DSL Modem alone to connect to the internet (no additional router) you can power cycle it by first turning off your computer and then unplug the modem itself from the power source at the wall. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then plug it back into the power source and wait for the warm up to finish before rebooting the pc.<br /> <br /> The DSL Modem should go through the normal warm up procedures of blinking lights, making them all stable and solid green ect. You will know when its finished warming up when the features are set at solid green (other than eithernet, internet and wireless connection as explained above). When the modem finished the warm up, reboot your computer and check your internet connection.<br /> <br /> Power cycling your DSL Modem can help keep your connection healthy and running at optimal speeds.<br />

Can't access to internet service


Turn off your internet modem or router for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes turn on you internet modem or router and turn on your computer and when you are already on your desktop click start and click run then type cmd and press enter. On the command prompt type ipconfig/all and press enter and the ipaddress and gateway will appear on your screen but in case there is or no ipaddress and gateway type ipconfig/release then type ipconfig/renew this process will erase the IP settings and renew the IP and gateway. Also check your modem or router if the lights of the modem are blinking, usually three or four lights that are blinking. If the two lights blinking only call your Internet service provider and ask for assistance that you are having difficulties with internet connection. Have a nice day.

The internet is down the dsl light on the modem is blinking red


Hi,

I experienced the same problem yesterday with my modem,the internet is down as a result of the fact that the computer doesn't recognize the remote modem,hence the dsl light blinks red,when the internet is up the dsl lights should blink green,the problem is mostly from your internet provider,few times from your computer.

The solution is so simple;

1.Remove the modem from your computer.
2.Shut down your computer.
3.Turn on your computer again after at least 3mins.
4.Insert the modem in your computer and connect to the internet.
5.It might take up to a few attempts before it gets connected to the internet.

Problem solved.

Online light blinkin in motorola sb4200


1- Disconnect the power at the back of the modem.
2- Disconnect the internet cable at the back of the modem (the cable from the wall to the modem).
3- Wait at least 2 minutes.
4- Connect the internet cable back.
5- Connect the power cable back.
6- The lights on the front of the modem should start turning on one at a time; the top one first, the second one next...

If the on-line light still blinks, you might want to repeat the steps above after shutting down your computer. Turn on your computer if the on line light is OK (not blinking).

If all fails, call your internet service provider (ISP) to see if the service itself is down for maintenance, or if there is a problem with high-speed internet in your area.

If you have a router, you might want to power it off before trying the steps above. Turn it back on when the on line light is OK.

Usually, I call my neighbor who has the same ISP to see if their internet is down, before I call the ISP company.

Hope that helps.

Constantly blinking Activity light


Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future...
The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations.
1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals  about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..

So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks....
Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....
