I have a ATT 2wire modem and all lights are solid green except the wireless light and if theirs too much activity online then it shuts all the other lights off except the power light


Wireless is supposed to blink. Check to see if the power outlet might be giving out. If not, then you might have to replace the router.

How to confirm that the BSNL modem is having problem & cannot be used any more if INET light is continuously blinking?


There are several lights on your modem/router. Each one has a function and signals whether it is working correctly by the color it is displaying and a few other factors.

All of the lights on your modem/router should be green and solid - EXCEPT for 2 which are for your internet and wireless services. Blinking means activity. If you INET light is continuously blinking that means its healthy. Blinking means activity. The internet always has activity. The blinking does not signal your activity - it signals the traffic and connection on the internet. Your wireless connection also has a light which should show activity and availability. A blinking light on your wireless connection means that either someone is connected wireless and using the internet or that the connection is up and available for wireless access.

All of your lights should be green. If you see a red or yellow light - regardless of whether it is flashing or not - it means that there is trouble or problems that need to be corrected.

Each light is marked with its function. They should say things like "power", "link", Internet or INET, and "wireless". When you turn on the modem/router during your first set up, let it power up and finish its testing before connecting your pc and turning it on. The modem will test each light, make them all go from red/yellow to green - then make them all turn solid green (not in that exact order) and this is all normal. You will know when it is done when all lights are solid green and stop blinking and/or moving (except the INET & wireless lights which will be constantly blinking). When all lights other then those two are green and steady - then its time to connect the cable to your pc and power it up.

If you are having problems with your internet connection - you can rule out the cause being your modem/router by following the instructions above. When you rule out that the modem/router is not the cause, you can continue by checking your PC.

For a wired connection (wired meaning that you are connecting your computer to the internet by using a cord/cable) the first thing you want to do is make sure that the computer is automatically sensing the connection.

Your computer should automatically sense that there is a live internet connection when you connect the ethernet cord from the modem/router to the pc. When its working right, the computer will display a connection picture which is called an "icon" on the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. Sometimes there is a downward arrow by the clock which needs to be clicked on to expland this area and show all icons for running programs. If you see a downward pointing arrow by your clock on the bottom right side of your screen, click on the arrow.

Test that it is sensing the internet connection by unplugging the ethernet cable from your pc and watch the bottom right side of the screen at the same time. Unplug it and repeat if necessary while watching the bottom corner to see a change which indicates it senses the connection. A normal internet connection icon looks like the picture of a computer monitor. Some glow green when they are active and the ethernet cable is connected. Some show a red "X" over the picture of the monitor on the bottom right side of your screen when the internet connection is down or not working. Some will say "cable disconnected" when you unplug the ethernet cord. Some show "Cable now connected" when you plug it back in. You should see something change and/or appear if your pc is picking up the internet connection correctly. When you have verified this as true - then you can continue on to the next step of troubleshooting the internet connection.

DSL service is an internet connection that is always on. Its considered a "live" connection. DSL connections usually do not require any set up (programming or changing settings). The only time that this is not the case is when someone tries to to set up a dial up connection like aol over the top of a dsl connection. You can check this by going to your control panel, click on internet options, and choose the "connection" tab at the top. In the connection area box there should be "nothing". The connection area box is for dial up connection settings. If a dial up service was set up in the pc it would show it here (you would see AOL dial up ect). If you see a dial up connection set up and you know that you have dsl, click on the remove box and delete it from this area.

You do not need to install anything from a disk to establish an internet connection if you have a dsl line. That means you dont need an "aol" disk or software to make the internet work.

to start the internet click on the blue "e" on your desktop which stands for internet explorer.

If you have any questions you can reply to my solution by going into the problem you posted on Fixya and click on the "reply" option.

I have a motorola AP-300 which keeps on blinking amber light when i turn it on. how can i reset it or what's wrong with the AP?


From the installation guide for this AP, I find the following:

LED Indicators

The unit has LED activity indicators on the front of the case provide a status display indicating error conditions, transmission, and network activity for the 802.11a (amber) radio or the 802.11b/g (green) radio.


802.11a Activity LED Amber

The amber LED flashes three times per second until firmware is loaded. During boot, 802.11a mobiles cannot associate. After adoption, the amber LED is steady or flashes with 802.11a radio traffic.

The amber LED flashes once per second if an error prevents the 802.11a radio from operating normally.


802.11b/g Activity LED Green

The green LED flashes three times per second until firmware is loaded. During boot, 802.11b/g mobiles cannot associate. After adoption, the green LED is steady or flashes with 802.11b/g radio traffic.

The green LED flashes once per second if an error prevents the 802.11b/g radio from operating normally.


From this, it appears that the 802.11A radio is malfunctioning.


Here is the Motorola support web page for this device.

My linksys network switch is not connecting network computer, what can i do to get it back to work?


Do you have any activity lights on the Linksys? If not your switch has no power a hardware problem. Try to power off for 5 seconds and restore power on the Linksys unit. Try to shut down (do not restart) all computers. Are all the activity lights off? If not again power off the Linksys for five seconds and restore power. Power on the computers and verify the activity lights are now green for each computer. If the computers are not networked and the activity lights are green, check your network settings on your computers, which could have incorrect TCP/IP settings or workgroup. If one activity light is not green for that Ethernet connection, check your cable connection or replace the Ethernet cable. The workgroup should all be the same name. The TCP/IP address should be the same with the exception of the last set of host digits which should be unique to each computer address.

The PC/ACTIVITY my Motorola modem isn't on... i don't know what to do.


if all of the other lights on the modem are lit, except pc activity, that means the modem isnt communicating with the computer. 3 things can cause this - modem could be bad, ethernet cord could be bad, or the NIC card(the card in the cpu that houses the ethernet port) is bad. Most of the time its the ethernet cord or the NIC card in my experience. Dont fret, both of those are relatively cheap fixes.

The activity light is off


If your activity light is not on that usually indicates the connection to your pc isn't working. Have you checked your ethernet cable to make sure it's plugged in firmly? Also, if you're using ethernet, you may want to try reseating the network card. If you're connected to a router try bypassing it and connecting directly to the modem.

Hope this helps!
