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.

Hope this helped plz rate

SOURCE: I have a 2 wire AT&T modem. The modem power

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!

SOURCE: I have the Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem, trouble using software

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!

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Why is my embarq 660 series DSL modem box's 1st

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.

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.

2wire 2701HG-B got red light on power & green light on wireless


Issue that you have mentioned its very common among 2Wire modems. Most of the cases we have diagnosed Modem usually OK but the AC Adapter, AC adapter somehow comes from 3rd party with low quality production. Due to its circuit design internal heat dries up the DC output capacitors. So DC output comes up with ripple and it cause modem to not work properly. You may change the AC adapter or you can change its Capacitors. Same rate AC adapters will work fine. Just make sure polarization is right.
If Issue continues you may post for further diagnosis

Good Luck

The power indicator light on the router is red


The stagnant red-power indicator suggests the modem is already worn off, usually after one and half years of use. You can try changing the original power adapter with the PSP one.

Hope it helps =)

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.
