Turning on your modem's wireless light

When the wireless light is solid green, it indicates that the modem's wireless is turned ON, but no data is being transmitted wirelessly. The light will blink green when data is being sent and received wirelessly.

Problem: Not lit up at all

If the wireless light is not lit up at all, then your modem's wireless is OFF. There are things you can do to turn your wireless back ON.

Problem: Amber light

If your wireless light is amber (yellowish-orange), it means your modem's wireless has been temporarily disabled. 

Not all modems have this functionality, but you can (accidentally) turn OFF your wireless if you've been messing around in your device's configuration interface and inadvertently triggered the wireless schedule feature.

To correct the problem, get in to your modem's visual interface. You can do this by:

  1. Connecting your computer directly to your modem using an Ethernet cable.
  2. Opening a browser window (e.g., Internet Explorer), and entering into the address bar.
  3. Pressing Enter.
