My ethernet light is blinking

I have a Westell 6100 and my ethernet light started blinking recently.   I cannot seem to connect to the internet nor can I get to my email server.   Why would this light be blinking and why would this prevent me from connecting?

    I have noticed that my Westell has a problem where the Ethernet light is blinking because there is a problem with the ethernet connection to the modem. I have to physically push down on the yellow cable right at the modem connection to keep the Ethernet light on sometimes. Sounds like a defect on my modem - maybe this is a defect on others as well?

Make sure you have internet. The ethernet light is blinking because what ever u have plugged into it is talking to the modem. The modem will then take that request and ask for it on the DSL/internet line. Make sure the DSL light is steady on and the internet light is on or flashing with activity.

The ethernet light is blinking because you are unable to dial out. Try plugging a phone in and see if you can dial out. If so the problem is in your long distance service or telephone line not the modem.

Check for the connectivity... also check whether the filters are attached properly to all the analog devices... such as phone , alarm .. fax

It probably isn't connect to the outside world. It doesn't know what IP to use on the outside. Call your ISP and see what your IP or if you should just keep in on dynamic and have it autopick up a IP.

Ethernet light blinks no Internet

Serveral soultions to try and they are at no cost to you. First, try re-booting the modem. Your modem stores cache just like a computer does, and it can build up on you. I myself unplug mine about once a week.. Two, in the control panel under Internet Opetion under browser history click on delete and confirm the delete, this will delete your temp. files. You might have exceeded the amount of cache allowed by windows. Finally make certain that you have ipx, and spx protocol installed on your comuter. If this doesn't help, I would get a new modem from your isp, more than likely it is bad. I know verizon modem are good for maximum of 2 years and average 1 year. I would recommend westell 6100 G moem and get a wireless router to go with.

Blinking light on Westell 6100 DSL modem

Blinking light means that firmware on your DSL modem just got updated. The modem is pinging the Networ/Computer connected to it. If you open your Modem Page 192.168.1.1 you will see the difference, unless you never have done it before.
