Hi Welcome to Fixya.
If the DSL light blinks , it means your DSL connection is not active or your DSL link is not working. The modem is trying to find a link, the reason why the DSL LED is blinking, If the link is established then DSL LED will be steady. And Internet LED also will work. To find and fix the issue you will need to contact your ISP(Internet Service Provider). They will come and check both end also the link in their system.
Thats all.

Hope you got my suggestion.For further help please stay connected with us.

Thanks for joining Fixya.

Have a nice day.

SOURCE: westwall modem Internet is solid red light

If the internet light is red, it means that the modem cannot get an ip connection from the ISP.

If your ISP has a PPPOE connection, most likely, the PPPOE password is not correct.

To ensure your settings, access the modem through a web browser. In the address bar, type 192.168.1.1.

Default Username: admin
Default Password: password

If this doesn't work, try admin for the username and password. If still doesn't work, you will need to reset the modem. Just hold the reset button for 30 seconds. Then turn it off for 1 minute.

Try again to access the modem, under Configuration, click Edit beside My Connection. Type your ISP username and password then Save.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

SOURCE: Assistance with blinking light on my DSL modem

The DSL light is your actual connection light - the broadband/internet light indicates information about your logon status.

So a flashing DSL means you do not Have Sync, which means no Broadband!

Switch Router off
Change the filter
Do not use extensions - use the master socket
Change the DSL cable from your telephone socket to your router
Reboot computer
Restart Router

If still a flashing light - your BB has not been provisioned yet, or their is a line fault. If you have a telephone connected lift the receiver and listen - are their noises, pops and crackles? If so then call your voice telephone provider - its a PSTN fault.

If no noises, do you have any other digital equipment connected, Satalite, Cable, Fax machine? If so remove them. and restart the router.

If you still have no success - then call your BB provider and tell them your router is not syncing... make sure you have paid your bill :D

SOURCE: flashing dsl light

The DSL light flashing on the modem is natural for it means the device is synchronizing. But if the DSL light continues to flash, you have to wait a while before connecting, it shouldn't take more than a minute. If it does, you may need to contact your service provider because that is uncommon whether there is active Internet connection or none.

On most DSL modems, normal light states are:

Power - Solid
DSL - Solid
Internet - Solid or flashing quickly when data is being transferred.
Ethernet - Only on and flashing quickly if cable attached to it and an active device
Wifi - Solid or flashing with active data transfer

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 />

Dsl light goes beyween blinking green, then goes solid red, then back to blinking green. Cannot connect to internet anymore.


The modem cannot get a signal from your service provider. The DSL light is an indicator if your modem is communicating with the network of your service provider. DSL light should always stay solid green. Try contacting your service provider. It might also be an indication of a bad modem.

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;

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.

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.....
