Question about Paradyne 6381 ADSL2+/ReachDSL Router (6381A3200)

1 Answer

No status light

Hi, I have a paradyne wireless router model 6388-A1-200 and its been working fine until 2 days ago the status light just went off and now its not coming on at all. I only see the power light, the link light and the LAN light. I spoke to my ISP and they said that there is definitely a problem with the router so hopefully one of you guys could be of better help.

On your connection LAN icon that normally sits at the bottem right hand corner, Right Click on it and select "Repair"

That should do the trick.

    If all the above fails, power off the router and pc.

    allow 5 minites, then turn on the router, allow a minute then switch on the PC.

    If this fails. Try chaning the RJ45 ethernet cable (if your using on) or using a static IP address.

    Basically you have a DHCP problem and that is why your connection is showing as limited.

    Router as a service running called DHCP Server and your PC has a service called DHCP Client, one of these services has stopped working.

Linksys b router not getting internet from modem, why?

Did it *EVER* work, or is this a "first-time" setup problem?

1. You need a "straight-through" Ethernet cable between the WAN (not LAN) port on the router to your modem.
2. You need a _working_ Ethernet cable between the modem and the router.
3. You need to turn the modem on.
4. You need to turn the router on.
5. You need to connect your PC to the router, and access the router's built-in web-server, and then view the router's "WAN-status" web-page. While on that page, click 'Renew IP address".

D-Link Airplus di-524 wireless problem


The status light is blinking in all dlink models, so that is normal.

The wireless radio issues have 3 possible solutions.

1. This model has a antenna that screws in the bnc socket behind it see if it's well screwed, or substitute it by another if 2 and 3 don't fix it.

2. On the advaced settings of the wireless configuration you have the ratio of radio broadcast from 25% to 100% check to see if it's on 100%, change channel to 11 if neer and 6 if far, make sure you have SSID broadcast enabled.

3. This models allow you to restart the AP unit and the router unit idependently, so it's always good pratice to restart your AP in the tools and system comands menu.

Hope that helps.
