    Yes, I have the same thing. I have checked and rechecked the cables and connections. The icon at the bottom of the screen indicates that I am connected, as well as the indicator within Control Panel.

    Suggestions?

HI,

Blinking green internet light is normal BUT you must check if theres any dsl outage in your area..You can contact your ISP for that.

But then maybe you can try this:

Turn your PC off > then you modem or router.. after 60 secs turn your modem or router ON first then your PC and check if you can go online.

If you called your internet service provider {ISP} and no reported outage let me know and we'l solution for that.

Keep me posted.

Cheers.

A flashing internet light(all others off) indicates that the modem is searching for a signal from your ISP. Try rebooting the modem and if that doesnt do it replace the coax going to the modem. If you still dont have internet then go ahead and call your ISP as it could be a problem on their end.

@CluelessNYC: If you purchased a modem from a third party then you may need to register the MAC address with your ISP. Most cable providers tie your account to a specific MAC.

Have you contacted your ISP for support?

I would suspect that there is no communication between your modem and your ISP. Your ISP will be able to tell you if they can detect your modem, if so then there might be a problem with your modem.

If you unplugged the modem and you service hasn't restarted yet, you should contact your provider.

If you have your modem connected to a router, you should unplug it and plug it back in as well.

I have the same problem. My internet connection green light blinks. My internet was working fine with Time Warner RCA DCM425 model. Recently, I brought the same RCA DCM425 model on the internet and but it does not. Could it be RCA DCM425 was not a Time Warner competible or do I need to install a driver? Any suggestions?

I recently had the same problem. My connection used to come into the house then go through a three way splitter so that it could go to two TV's and a modem. I added a two way splitter that goes to the three way and to the modem. I no longer have any issues.

It could have been my three way splitter deteriorated so that it could no longer carry a strong enough signal to the modem or the additional split at that point weakened the signal to much, either way if you can cut the number of splits or the size of the cable to your modem it could solve your problem.

Sounds like a problem with your cable connection. Check your coaxial cable, and the splitter from where the cable enters your home. The tech will use a signal meter to measure the quality of your cable, and then replace the wiring if necessary.

I have had problems connecting to internet all weekend (internet - red light), am on now but internet and ethernet green light keep blinking, is this ok.


No because dsl light should be solid green light. You need to contact your ISP to check if there is a problem on the network.

Only internet light is blinking


According to the user guide, the modem is trying to connect to the isp. If it is continually blinking, check all your cables. Once you are satisfied all cables are properly connect contact the isp to find out if there is an outage in your area and if not they can help you.

Modem will connect to router but not to computer


This is mostly because it has not adapted to the changes when using another device aside from the router, especially a router. What I have done with internet modems is when you are removing a router, or if you are installing a router is allow that modem to be shut down for about 10 - 20 minutes before you use other devices it does not recognize right away.

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!

Power light is green and keeps blinking. it changes to red sometimes and i cant connect to the internet..


Hi der... well the issue your facing is simple to say ur power adaptor is faulty. Usually its due to some electrical shorts or maybe some heavy lightnings. You can remedy for it.

1st : Buy a new adaptor if available or sold seperately
2nd: call ur ISP to have it replaced if ur still under some contract term or if the modem is still under warranty. usually 1year warranty
3rd : you can buy ur own ADSL2+ modem from supporting outlets . Make sure ur isp supports this modem.
Or u can always contact the vendor of 2WIRE in your location. They might be able to assist u in adaptors replacing issues. I would suggest calling ur isp first and enquire. :)
This are the solutions for ur problem pal.. So make a wise decision.. Any needs and help post it to FixYa..ANd the experts here will fix ya..!

Arris Modem won't work with Airport Express


Not sure how helpful this will be, as I'm running a different piece of gear, plus it requires both troubleshooting + ISP assistance.  I had a similar problem with my AirPort Extreme: AirPort Extreme saw the Arris, iBook saw the AirPort Extreme, but no internet connectivity.
  1. In my case, I needed to set the AirPort to DHCP in the AirPort Utility application.
  2. Power down the AirPort Extreme
  3. Power down the Arris. You achieve this by unplugging the Arris *and* removing the back-up battery.
  4. Wait a few moments.
  5. Insert the battery into the Arris.
  6. Plug in the Arris power supply.
  7. Wait for the Arris to go through the restart protocol; when all the lights on the front panel are solid green, the start-up is complete.
  8. Power up the AirPort Extreme; wait for the front panel light to go solid green.
As I was doing this, I had my ISP on the phone that confirmed complete connectivity of the signal path and ensured that I was online.  While the Arris was powered down, my ISP also sent a "message" to the Arris; I don't know if this was a software update or what.  I completed the AirPort set-uo through the Utility application, the AirPort restarted, and I was online.
Hope this helps.

Red Internet Light on Westell model 6100F


hi rtoffler....

by the way, is the dsl light solid green or red???...and if it's red... the line connection from the server to your modem is doing good...however, you said that the internet light is red because you have not configured your modem properly.... i mean, you need to update the interface of your modem before you can go online....and whether the message said that you're connected to the network when you connect your XBox 360...the only assurance is when you can browse different websites and lets you go online...however, your pc should be in tri core so that it's compatible with your Xox 360 video game,kkk and so that you would not encounter problems and errors in the future,kkk....and by the way...the data light is always blinking esp if you're browsing websites, the faster it'll blink nd it can't go on a solid green light anyways...,,kkk....and i do hope i was able to configure a little to your concern now....and enjoy playing and downloading more and chanllenging and fun games with your Xbox 360k,,,,happy playing games, rtoffler!!!!! and happy new year by the way!!!!...:-D

Zoom ADSL X6 Modem "Link" Light Suddenly Blinks Continuously


the modem may have gone faulty so if your isp provided it ask them to replace it if the modem is in warranty period and if your isp provides internet connection through the phone line then first please try plugging the modem on main socket in with an adsl filter plugged in and if this is not the case then problem is definately the line through which the broadband signal come to your place which is suppose to be sorted out by your isp.
