Red light on modem's internet

When im trying to connect to the internet, my modem has got a red light where it says ''internet''. Appereantly it means that it can't find an IP address. How do i fix this? I've tried to restart the modem, trying to unplug and plug back in the plug that gives the modem the internet. The light is on the very-right side of the panel.

I think incorrect physical connection between your router device and the PC.Because cable modem status light should be solid green.it indicates that your ADSL/cable modem has a good connection.

Recheck and correct the Ethernet connection between your PC and the router device.

SOURCE: router won't broadcast

Use your computer's web-browser to connect to the web-server "inside" the router.
Check the 'WAN' settings -- they seem to be OK, since you have Internet access.
Check the 'Wireless' settings, or just rerun the Wireless Configuration Wizard, to rebuild your wireless network.

SOURCE: unable to connect to internet

If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck

hold the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds and the router should reset back to factory settings and you have to set it up again. Here's the manual though. bottom of page 62. instruction if you forgot password. But it works the same.

Red light on my modem


You should see a lot more than just one red light, I'd think. Sounds like the modem took a surge. I'd look to see if there is a tiny reset hole or button somewhere. If not, leave it unplugged for 15 minutes and try again. May have failed.

Check for the user name and the password for the connectivity. Internet light red only means either the user name or the password is incorrect. Try entering the password and try again it should help.

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!

Red Internet Light on Westell model 6100F


hi rtoffler....

by the way, is the dsl light solid green or red???...and if it's red... the line connection from the server to your modem is doing good...however, you said that the internet light is red because you have not configured your modem properly.... i mean, you need to update the interface of your modem before you can go online....and whether the message said that you're connected to the network when you connect your XBox 360...the only assurance is when you can browse different websites and lets you go online...however, your pc should be in tri core so that it's compatible with your Xox 360 video game,kkk and so that you would not encounter problems and errors in the future,kkk....and by the way...the data light is always blinking esp if you're browsing websites, the faster it'll blink nd it can't go on a solid green light anyways...,,kkk....and i do hope i was able to configure a little to your concern now....and enjoy playing and downloading more and chanllenging and fun games with your Xbox 360k,,,,happy playing games, rtoffler!!!!! and happy new year by the way!!!!...:-D
