Question about Efficient Networks SpeedStream 5100 Modem

Open Question

MY 5100 keeps dropping my DSL (LIGHT TURNS RED AND KEEPS FLASHING) My phone co. says my lines are fine and my provider says my DSL service is good. After it is on awhile the problem goes away until the next time I shut the system down & restart it. I always shut it down in bad weather & unplug all power and phone lines. Is there a way to test the modem ???

I think your modem needs to be configure by your ISP.

I have a D-link DSL-2750U router worked fine till yesterday, but now its power led keeps on giving a red light it should give green a second or two later but it keeps givings


Reset router. There are two resets. A simple push reboots and holding it in clears all custom settings. Try the first.

This is a quick fix and usually does it. Test with network cable and work your way backwards to modem if you still have problems.

Internet signal keeps dropping


There's a lot of possiblities here.If you have a DSL/dialtone lineshare,listen for noise on the line(humming,crackling static,dropped calls).If you have a dry loop(DSL only),connect a phone in place of the modem and see if it has an "intercept" message(like "you have tried to call a number out of your service area" or something like that).If it does,you can use a phone to check the line when the DSL drops(don'touforget to put an inline filter on it).If the DSL light doesn't go out when the Internet light does,it is NOT a problem with the physical line.This would be an issue with the modem or the equipment at the serving end.( I am a DSL tech,and spend lots of wasted time diagnosing and trying to fix problems that are beyond my reach(central office server issue) or that I didn't need a dispatch for(it is cheaper to send a new modem than to send a tech).

2wire 2700HG-B Dsl light blinks green than turns turns red, keeps repeating. does not connect.


If your DSL light goes green solid to red check to make sure all your phones are filtered. Make sure your not filtering your 2Wire.

Intermittent ADSL connection


The DSL light blinking or going out indicates that the DSL modem is loosing sync. This is usually caused by noise on the line. When you get the DSL service you should be given filters to put on all of your phones so that the phones will not interfere with the DSL signal. Those filters need to be attached to anything connected to the phone line that has the DSL on it except for the DSL modem. Other than that the problem could be on the service providers end, something outside your home, or the DSL modem going out. I would suggest that you verify everything is filtered, then contact your service provider so they can run test on your DSL line.

The middle light is the light for internet services. If it is flashing that means its looking for a dsl signal, if its solid orange that means it needs authentication information (IE: username/password entered into it) and if its solid red that means you have no signal at all. What I would recommend is first check all the phones/alarms/satelite dish systems in your house and make sure they all have dsl filters on them before plugging into the wall, since this will cause an intermittent dsl connection. If everything is fine then call your Internet Provider and have them do some line tests for you to see if the service is having problems.

you have the DSL filters plugged into all your telephones, but NOT plugged into the DSL modem?

is the DSL modem configured to automatically connect using your username and password?

have you tried using a different phone cable, or plugging into a different phone jack?

2701HG-B


Hi. I will not repeat the check the phone line and resetting comments as it's now redundant.

I always have a spare modem as a line tester.

I've seen several 2700HG-B 2wire modem/routers burn out and every single time it's the DSL signal or modem portion that is burnt out. Even if you have two or three phone line surge protectors these 2700s are prone to shorting out unless you have a direct signal splitter DSL setup.

Here are a few things you can try to confirm if the 2700 is no longer functional on the DSL signal light problem.

#1: Turn on (plug in) your 2700 without the phone line plugged in and wait. If the DSL starts flashing red then there is a hardware problem in the modem/router.

#2: Plug the phone line into the 2700 while the dsl light is flashing red. It might take about 3 seconds however it should start to flash green and let it flash for about (usually) three minutes. If it turns red then the 2700 is indeed damaged.

#3: If you can enter into your modem using the http://2wire... and check the connection status. The first two status lines should read attempting to connect and no connection.
