Question about Modems

1 Answer

Broaband link I have the linksys 2wire 1707HG, and have lost my broadband link. The front panel of the router has 3 lights. The top power light comes on as normal. The broadband link light flashes orange(searching for broadband link) as normal, but instead of turning solid green, it turns solid orange. I cannot connect to net. The local network light is solid green when i connect router to my laptop, as normal. I am now having to use my old modem.

Ok, thank you for clarifying.

It seems like the settings on the 1707 have been reset.
On this modem, while connected, type "homeportal.2wire.net" without the quotes.

  • click on "Broadband Link"
  • click on "Advanced Settings"
*note:you may have to enter your password. if you never set one and it asks you for one, click on "I still can’t remember the password". Follow the instructions.
  • On the "advanced Settings" page, make sure your settings are correct. The user name is the same you use to check your AT&T Yahoo Email. and also the password.
  • If you have forgotten your settings, you can call AT&T to retreive your settings at 1-877-722-3755. Have your AT&T Bill and the debit/credit card (used to activate your service) on hand.
They should be able to give you your info.
If not, comment back.

you probably need to update the firmware, just follow the link on the router's admin page. if that dosn't take care of the problem you likely have a grounding issue.

DSL Modem


That means that the phone is interfeering with the broadband. Often you fix this kind of problems by replacing the broadband filter. If it does not work after replacement it means there is a problem either with phone line or with broaband provider.
In this case contact first ISP (broaband provider), then your phone company to locate the problem.
Most likely it is the filter.

2WIRE Single Port DSL Line Filter


i think when you purchased the 2wire modem it usually comes along with 3 sets of single port dsl line filters, try out those other filters see which one works. if the local network light doesn't come on, (are you using 2wire 1000 series?), check the network adapters in your computer, this usually happens when you are using lower versions of OS. try the power outlet in the kitchen / bathroom, if power light doesn't come on, push the reset button for 30 secs. if power light is still off or red, then you may need to replace the modem (check if it's still under warranty, if not you will need to buy a new one.) also you should be using the same power adapter that came with the modem, check the specs. sometimes if the modem is more or less than 3 years old, they could get defective especially if it's often affected by sudden power surges.
