This means that the router has power supply and broadcasts Wi-Fi sgnal. Check the connection with the modem, in order to DSL connection. After this typically it will get internet too.

I'm having issues with the internet ever since my son added a password to the wireless connection. I can sign on after about 5 or 6 times trying different methods. Once I sign on... I'm having issues...


Most routers will 'factory reset' if you hold the reset button for 10-15 seconds

If you are on DSL you risk losing internet connection if the router is handling the PPPOE login. The way to tell usually, is that the DSL modem will have an 'internet' light lit up along with the power, dsl, ethernet indicator lights. If the internet light is NOT illuminated on your modem when you get online, don't reset the router until you are sure what your PPPOE login credentials are

If you are on Cable, this won't be a problem at all

Tip

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 />

How many lights should be on my westell model327w?


b2f0922.jpg
The Westell has several lights on the front that have various meanings

Power = When lit, this light indicates there's power to the router. It should be solid green.

Ethernet = When lit, this light indicates that the modem is communicating with your computer. This will be on only if you're using the Ethernet cable to connect the modem to your computer

Wireless = When lit, this light indicates that the wireless function of the Actiontec is working. This will only be lit if you're using the wireless function.

DSL = When lit, this light indicates the modem is speaking to the central office (phone company). When working, the light should be solid green.

Internet = When blinking, this light indicates that you're receiving information i.e., you're able to browse from site to site. This light will be blinking as you're receiving information.

No internet


If the power light is red this is a system error.

Try to reset the router by holding and pressing the reset button for 10 seconds. Then power cycle the router.

If the power light is still red. It is possible that the router is already defective.

My wireless router wont connect to my laptop


Connect your Internet (DSL/Cable) modem to your router and power ON them both. Now turn ON your laptop's wifi receiver by either using a hard button, a sliding button or whatever button it is in your laptop's body. OR, maybe your laptop have a key combination to power on your wifi receiver like FN + F10. Make sure the wifi LED lights and there you can use your internet broadcasted by your router.

Actiontec (GT704WG) Wireless Router Lights


Yes, this is normal. The flickering lights are showing activity - data is being transferred when the light is on, and vice versa. The power light should always be on when the unit has power. The DSL light should be solid as long as your DSL line is connected properly.
