Modem keeps rebooting

I have this problem recently. My modem keeps restarting. When i manually restart it, the power shows a red light and it keeps giving a ticking sound. After a while, it will turn green and will start blinking. This occurs whenever you restart the modem however, when the green light stabilise, it will restart again. On my computer, it will show that it's acquiring network address. Then it will restart. Before this problem, under "internet" it shows a red light and i cannot go online. Now i totally can't go online.

    i have the same problem with my 2701 HG-B 2wire modem (service is AT&T DSL). Modem and Internet will function long enough to navigate through 2 pages then everything disconnects again and reboots with the clicking sounds and the reboot lights. i've tried unplugging, exchanging the phone-jack wire and fiddling with my network settings but nothing has helped. My loss of connection has had no real pattern and seems to have nothing to do with my computer (Mac G4 Powerbook) but with the modem itself.

    I have this problem as well. I have spent countless hours on the phone with Tech support and had sevral come out to try to solve the problem to no avail. It started when I had the speedstream 4100 in an atempt to solve the problem they replaced it with the 2wire, wich they have replaced twice since then. I am beyond at my wits end.

Have patience! It can take the modem/router 30 to 90 seconds to _FULLY_ restart, and to synchronize with the Internet Service Provider's network. Meanwhile, your computer may show "no network connection" or "network cable unplugged". Then, it takes 15 seconds for your computer to synchronize with your modem/router -- that 15 seconds is what you're experience if you unplug the cable, and then "last action to plug it".

I am trying to hook up to my new comp. and new internet and the lights come on for the wireless, wired and router r green then the modem light is red, what am i doing wrong


There is nothing wrong with your modem. There are modems that when you turn it on, the wireless, dsl lights are green while the power light is red then after a few seconds, the green lights disappear and the red light will turn green. After sometime green light will come back on. This means your modem is restarting and doing a self check.
If the power light stays red, then you a have a problem with your modem.

Shuts off...restarts, then runs for a few mins


If the modem is 10 years old then its time to replace it even if it was working fine if not very good to be abreast with the latest technology. The ISP must have tested the lines which must be fine because they keep on upgrading so you need to replace the modem to a latest model.

My comcast modem's internet connection just died a while ago the only light that is on is the power light, and i have rebooted the modem already. how can i fix this?


You need to hard reset your modem. By doing that, unplug the modem from the power outlet. Look at the back of the modem, you will see there a small red button. You need to press that button. You need to get a pin or pen to press that reset button. Press the reset button for 5 mins. Monitor the power light. It will change to orange light and it will restart. Once it restarted, you can release the reset button and wait for the lights to come up. Since you did the hard reset. You need to configure the modem with your username and password from your ISP.
You need to access the gui or firmware of your modem. If it ask for username and password. This is the time you need to contact your ISP. They will help you to configure the modem. Once they provided you the username and password ofr your modem. Write it down so you will have a copy and in case it happen again you know what to do. Username and password for the modem is different from the username and password for your internet. You also need to enter the username and password for the internet so you can use the internet. If you get a red light for the internet, that means the username and password is incorrect.
If this didnt work. You need to replace your modem.

When the DSL light turns red it indicates that the modem has no internet signal.
So please check if the cables are connected properly
Also ensure that there is a proper signal to your premises without any interference
This is called intermittent connection
If the DSL light turns red it indicates that there is a problem with the cables connected or the DSL line
Please check your DSL connection with ISP

There is on another reason that the modem might have gone bad.
If all the above steps are executed and if this issue still persists replace the modem

Router will not connect to internet


You will need to assign a different ip address to the modem - Iam assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ipaddress 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 tothe modem.

Modem keep rebooting.


It sounds like you have a bad modem. Have you tried to plug the device into a different power outlet? This will rule out that it's a possible power issue in the outlet.

If no change by trying a different outlet I would replace modem.

Hope this helps.
