Try holding the reset button. This will allow to clear the ram and allow it run up to speed again. Modems need a restart every once in a while.

Try to replace the power cord with a same voltage adapter from Radio Shack or any local electronic store. If you search FixYa using key work "2Wire Modem", you'll see a whole bunch of people having the exactly same problem with their 2Wire modems! I fixed mine (all three of them) by simply replacing the power cords!

You may check the following:
1. Make sure to plug the power cube into a power strip or wall outlet and then plug the power cube's other end into the modem's power (PWR) jack.
2. You should only use the power cube with the Zoom X6. Other power cubes may damage your hardware.
3. Try another wall outlet.
4. Reset the modem. Use a paper clip and insert it into the RESET pinhole in the modem's back panel and press it 3 times. Then turn off the modem for a minute and turn it back on. Check if the power light will turn solid green.
5. Possible defective modem.
Hope this helps! Good luck!

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!

Telephone your Internet Service Provider, and have them check that you've paid your monthly fees, and that the DSL-modem at "their" end of your telephone-circuit has not failed.
Try a different DSL-modem, to see if your particular modem has "died".
Check the 2-strand or 4-strand wire from the DSL-modem to the wall-outlet, to make sure that it is properly connected.
Try a different 4-strand wire.
