Purchased att dsl direct / installed modem with power good and connected phone line / laptop sees no signal and of course the 24/7 - 365 tech support line with att is closed??? any one know how to fix...
If all the lights on the modem are Green then it means there's no prob
with the hardware. just make sure that you're going to use the right
WEP key or wireless password. the network name is 2wirexxx, the X is
the the last 3 numbers of the SN which can be found on the bottom of
your 2wire 2701HG-B.make sure that your wireless switch is also turned
on of course. the wireless light on the modem will lit if it is

The trick I found for this is amazingly simple. Take the phone line out from your DSL modem and plug your phone line temporarily into an antique regular telephone for a second, check that it has a dial tone, and plug it back into your DSL modem. Your red light should go green in a minute after plugging the phone line back in. If you leave your computer idle too long, I think the phone company senses no activity and kills the connection after a few dead minutes, and the signal gets booted into some electronic alley. Also put tinfoil over your splice connectors as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.
the modem is already old and obselete try to upgrade the modem. even though the lights on your modem works. try to call ATT because they can run a line test so they can determine if the connection is good or not
Check your DSL Filters on your house phones or anything connected to the phone line EXCEPT the modem. The modem should not have a filter on it. If this doesnt help I would recommend getting your ISP out to test the line because sometimes the resisitors or hardware in the box goes bad or at the DSLAM.
I had the same issues with SaskTel in Canada, with the same router. It was a downstream line issue. Actually, I had the problem twice with 2 separate causes. I'd check the continuity of the lines from the punchblock (where the service enters the house) to the wall panel that you are plugging the router into. There may be a bad pairing somewhere in the wall from corroded wires, rodent damage, heat etc... and simply swapping the pairs at the block and the wall may fix the problem. That being said, both fixes from SaskTel came at the local junction box, once from a tech bumping one of my lines off the block and another from a second high-bandwidth line being connected into the same pairing as mine on the main line.
So, unfortunately, if its not in the wall...you'll be pulling teeth with AT&T for a while.
Is that second location also a DSL line? You may have to consult with AT&T to see if the DSL line runs to that second location.
What are you trying to accomplish? By adding a second modem, you essentially create two separate networks. Why not use a switch and connect it to the first modem, which would allow you to connect more PCs.
wireless signal is not from ATT but from the router or modem.
the distance between is line of sign. approximate max distance is 500 ft. you should have not problem connecting it.
The only obstacle is walls, trees, or any other thing between you and the modem.
*if the DSL light on your modem is blinking..
TRY: using different filters// check physical connection
IF: not resolved call ISP for a trouble ticket for their line department
*if all the lights constantly blinks
DO: purchase new modem, maybe deffective already or check if modem still under warranty so provider can replace it
NOTE: plug 4100 modem directly to the back of the computer tower without the linksys router and check if light status still the same...
HOW: cable connected from back of modem shud be plug in directly to port at the back of PC tower.. completly remove linksys and turn linksys off..
hi,there are a lot of possibilities y ur dsl light wont stop flashing red, 1.could be hardware failure,2.defective lead light for dsl,3.or line issue on the network...i strongly recommend that you contact your isp or att provider so that test would be done by their tech support,...basically you have checkd all inside wirings n as you have said you even tested the nid already...have you tried changing the dsl cable or phone cable? have you tried using another modem? were you using a filter for your dsl? you have to consider also other emi/rfi or electronic interference....but most probably you might try upgrading your modem n see if your gonna get a steady dsl light...the ethernet plugs has no effect on the dsl light...its just the cable connection or line issue or defective modem...i hope this will help, pls feel free to ask if you need further astnce...
Rob just studied ur problem.Iam a tech which handles this kind of issue.
I talk to verizon,at&t,bellsouth,qwest daily for such issues.
Well i can suggest u onething u can get the efficient speedstream 4100 series modem which comes with a 1 yr warranty.
And also checkout with verizon clearly abt ur distance from the central office.Bcos might be ur dsl circuit may be not technically feasible
For further clarifications plz get back to me.
