    Router has Red Blinking Modem light. I've tried everything more than once. DSL is working without the Router connected but when I re-connect the Router... there's the Red Blinking light again... It was working till it got unplugged and I reset it. I found out thru much research..it means in my case.. The WAN connection has lost IP connectivity with it's Default Gateway. I logged into the router's address & looked for WAN options and it states WAN is active?? I clicked on connection repair and gives message as requesting PPP information?? Could someone please help guide me thru what I need to do. I have gathered several IP addresses from the modem, router & XP PC and I have Gateway's & DNS primary # & 2ndry #'s... I've also contacted Tech Support at Motorola... still waiting for a response. Looks like this unit has been discontinued.

    Thanks for your help! Lyn leniar57@yahoo.com

Modem light goes RED if No external Ethernet device has been attached and detected OR The Ethernet link is down.
in your case it is going to be the DSL MODEM ....

Second cause could be The WAN interface has been disabled by the firmware.

TO enable it log on to your router's address http://192.168.10.1.

and look for WAN options.

My at&t Motorola 3360 has every light blinking but is still working. The Power and DSL are continuously blinking red and the ethernet, internet and activity are all blinking green.


Hi,

Here's the thing...if the modem is unplugged, and you press the "Reset" button, or any button, nothing will happen because the modem is UNPLUGGED.

When you plug it in again, there is usually a few minutes or so during which time the lights will blink. Eventually, when the DSL connection is established, the blinking should decrease. But, there will always be some blinking going on to indicate that data is being transmitted.

If the "Ethernet" light is blinking, then a computer that is plugged into the router is transmitting/receiving data. If the "Wireless" light is blinking, then a computer that using a wireless connection to the router is transmitting/receiving data.

If a red light blinks, then that usually means the DSL connection has been broken. When that happens, for whatever reason, the modem will automatically begin its initialization routine and will continue to do so until connection has been established. During that time, LEAVE IT ALONE.

If you uplug the device, or if you press ANY button while the device is attempting to correct itself, you can cause permanent damage.

So, you are correct. It's not a problem. I'm sure you've heard the phrase "If it's not broken, then don't fix it." There's a lot of truth to that.

I hope this helps.

Modem light is blinking no internet light


hi, there are two ways to assit you on this issue.Either you can call belkin customer care which is a TOLL FREE no. on the product box and get assisted or else proceed with the following basic steps.
1. the product that you have is an obsolette.
2.Before troubleshooting the belkin product. Please connect your computer directly with the modem (without router)on the ethernet(lan) port and check for the solid lights on the modem after turning it on, after that check for internet connectivity, if you can go online, its fine else you need to contact your modem vendor and get fixed.
3. if u can go online, then connect your router isolated port to the modem amd your computer back to the router's lan port(port 1) and check for the solid internet,power,modem,lan lights on the router.
4. if all are solid lights , check you can go online else you can hold the reset button at the rear side of your router for 2 mins if you have a cable modem and then check for connectivity.
5. If you have a dsl connection , then better contact customer care, they assit you very well.

first check your computers internet connection settings.and also check for any updates that could pretain to your modem/or computer.the problem is with your main computer,and not with the router.second check your firewall,make sure the correct port is open to let the traffic in.
