The "Power Light" in my modem is not working!

If the power light in your modem is not working well then, it's pretty obvious that the problem comes from the power outler. However there are different scenario of why was the power light is OFF.

This is the most common scenario. If the power light is OFF means there's no power source flowing to your modem. The best way to troubleshoot this issue is to check the power outlet.
  • Check if the Power Adapter is securely plugged in into the power outlet.
  • Check if the power outlet if it is active or not.
  • Check the cable if there's no any damage
  • If you have an extra Power Adapter with you, it is advisable to bypass the Power adapter and replace it with the new one. If this procedure solved the problem, the old power cable is either defective or not functioning properly. If not, then there's a big tendency that the problem occurs with your power line or the power outlet itself. In this case, you must try to look for another power outlet and plugged your modem in (only the modem) to test if its really the power outlet that causes the problem. After doing this step and still, the modem is not working and if you see that all the other appliances in your house are working properly then the Modem is either defective or not functioning properly. The modem needs a replacement, you may contact your ISP if their service includes a replacement for defective modem.

If the power light is off while others are working and if there's no problem in your internet connection, then there's a possibility that only the power led is not functioning properly. But if the power light is Off or blinking while others are not, and if you're losing your internet connection intermittently, then the modem is either defective or not functioning properly.

How if the Ethernet light is not working? This is what are we going to discuss in my next post!
Have a great day and happy blogging!
