If you haven't done so already I would turn the netopia router off and back on again at least once. If that doesn't solve the problem it's probably a sync issue with your providers equipment. I'm assuming you're using ATT because of the Netopia router, but generally speaking you should contact your provider and have them run a line test.

They can determine if the line is good or not. If It is all working fine at the time you call ask them to run monitoring on the line for the following 24-48 hours to try and anticipate a reoccurrence. Insist that they call you back regardless at the end of the monitoring term to share their results with you.

Hope this helps.

HI there
Internet Explorer is the problem. Down Mozilla Firefox (obviously from another computer) onto flash disk (memory stick) and install it on your computer. it is a lot more stable, and it free download from www.firefox.com

Hi I have a 2700hg-b modem router. the dsl light flashes green then turns solid red. I know it is fried, but the circuit board looks good. I am willing to pay shipping to recycle it. is there anyone that...


Hi...
The DSL light if it flashes in green, then it says it is trying to establish a connection with ISP...
Changes to red says "failed to establish the connection"...

The DSL light usually flashes green if there is a lot of noise in your telephone line...so it is also advised to do a line test for your connection...

--->> Recycling the Modem is a good thing, definitely you will be getting a good answer from some tech...

-Unable to access the router's webpage. -The router is 'trying' connect to modem (modem light flashing, internet light off) despite the fact it's already connected.


Have to unplug router and modem to reset both for approx. 2 min. Then plug in modem first let that reset and all lights come back on (except router light) then when that has finished booting do the same with the router. It should work.

Can't connect to internet when router is connected.


You might try this:
1 power off or unplug your cable or DSL Modem.
2 Power off your router
3 waiti about 30 seconds,
4 plug in your cable/DSL modem
5 wait until the modem boots up (all lights except activity should be on)
6 power up your router.

Did that work?

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.

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.

when you upgraded did any settings from your isp change like passwords or usenames that your router may not be registering at your isp's server, or the line speed that you are now getting is not suported by the router.

 

type 192.168.2.1 in your web browser and check the connection settings.
