Topup if required.
After you turn on power to the router, the following sequence of events should occur:
1. When power is first applied, verify that the Power LED is on.
2. After approximately 10 seconds, verify the following:
a. The LAN port LEDs are lit for any local ports that are connected.
b. The ADSL Link LED is lit.
If the ADSL link LED is lit, a link has been established to the connected device. If a LAN port is connected to a 100 Mbps device, verify that the port’s LED is green. (If the port is 10 Mbps, the LED is amber.)
Power LED Is Not On
If the Power and other LEDs are off when your router is turned on:
• Make sure that the power cord is properly connected to your router and that the power supply
adapter is properly connected to a functioning power outlet.
• Check that you are using the 12 V DC power adapter supplied by NETGEAR for this product.
If the error persists, you have a hardware problem and should contact Technical Support.
Power LED Is Red
When the router is turned on, it performs a power-on self-test. If the Power LED turns red after a
few seconds or at any other time during normal operation, there is a fault within the router. The
Power LED also turns red when you press the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons on the side panel
of the router simultaneously for 6 seconds, and blinks red 3 times when you release these buttons.
However, in this case, the modem router is working normally.
If the Power LED turns red to indicate a router fault, turn the power off and on to see if the router
If the power LED is still red 1 minute after power up:
• Turn the power off and on to see if the router recovers.
If the error persists, you might have a hardware problem and should contact Technical Support.
(A hardware reset and reconfiguration might be required and a firmware upgrade)
ADSL Port LED Is Not On
If either the LAN LEDs or ADSL Link LED does not light when the Ethernet connection is made,
check the following:
• Make sure that the Ethernet cable connections are secure at the router and at the hub or
• Make sure that power is turned on to the connected hub or workstation.
• Be sure you are using the correct cable: when connecting the ADSL port, use the cable that
was supplied with the wireless-N modem router. If the ADSL link LED is still off, this may
mean that there is no ADSL service or the cable connected to the ADSL port is bad.
If your router is unable to access the Internet, you should first determine whether you have an
ADSL link with the service provider. The state of this connection is indicated with the Internet
ADSL Link LED Is Green or Blinking Green
If your ADSL link LED is green or blinking green, then you have a good ADSL connection. You
can be confident that the service provider has connected your line correctly and that your wiring is
ADSL Link LED Is Blinking Amber
If your ADSL link LED is blinking amber, then your modem router is attempting to make an
ADSL connection with the service provider. The LED should turn green within several minutes.
If the ADSL link LED does not turn green, disconnect all telephones on the line. If this solves the
problem, reconnect the telephones one at a time, being sure to use a microfilter on each telephone.
If the microfilters are connected correctly, you should be able to connect all your telephones.
If disconnecting telephones does not result in a green ADSL link LED, there might be a problem
with your wiring. If the telephone company has tested the ADSL signal at your network interface
device (NID), then you might have poor-quality wiring in your house.
ADSL Link LED Is Off
If the ADSL link LED is off, disconnect all telephones on the line. If this solves the problem,
reconnect the telephones one at a time, being sure to use a microfilter on each telephone. If the
microfilters are connected correctly, you should be able to connect all your telephones.
If disconnecting telephones does not result in a green ADSL link LED, check for the following:
• Check that the telephone company has made the connection to your line and tested it.
• Verify that you are connected to the correct telephone line. If you have more than one phone
line, be sure that you are connected to the line with the ADSL service. It might be necessary to
use a swapper if your ADSL signal is on pins 1 and 4 or the RJ-11 jack. The modem router
uses pins 2 and 3.
Internet LED is Red
If the Internet LED is red, the device was unable to connect to the Internet. Verify the following:
• Check that your log-in credentials are correct, or that the information you entered on the Basic
Settings screen is correct.
• Check with your ISP to verify that the Multiplexing method, VPI, and VCI settings on the
ADSL settings screen are correct.
• Check if your ISP has a problem—it may not be the router that cannot connect to the Internet
but your ISP that cannot provide an Internet connection.
Obtaining an Internet IP Address
If your modem router is unable to access the Internet, and your Internet LED is green or blinking
green, you should determine whether the modem router is able to obtain an Internet IP address
from the ISP. Unless you have been assigned a static IP address, your modem router must request
an IP address from the ISP. You can determine whether the request was successful using the
To check the Internet IP address from the browser interface:
1. Launch your browser, and select an external site such as www.netgear.com.
2. Access the main menu of the modem router’s configuration at http://192.168.0.1.
3. In the main menu, under Maintenance, click Router Status and check that an IP address is
shown for the WAN port. If 0.0.0.0 is shown, your modem router has not obtained an IP
address from your ISP.
If your router is unable to obtain an IP address from the ISP, the problem might be one of the
• If you have selected a login program, the service name, user name, or password might be
incorrectly set. See the following section, “Troubleshooting PPPoE or PPPoA.
• Your ISP might check for your computer’s host name.
Assign the computer host name of your ISP account to the modem router in the browser-based
• Your ISP allows only one Ethernet MAC address to connect to Internet, and might check for
your computer’s MAC address. In this case, do one of the following:
– Inform your ISP that you have bought a new network device, and ask them to use the
router’s MAC address.
– Configure your router to spoof your computer’s MAC address. This can be done in the
Basic Settings screen. See the Wireless-N ADSL2+ Modem Router DGN2000 Setup
The PPPoE connection can be debugged as follows:
1. Access the main menu of the router at http://192.168.0.1.
2. Under Maintenance, select Router Status.
3. Click the Connection Status button.
4. If all of the steps indicate OK, then your PPPoE connection is up and working.
If any of the steps indicates Failed, you can attempt to reconnect by clicking Connect. The
modem router will continue to attempt to connect indefinitely.
If you cannot connect after several minutes, you might be using an incorrect service name, user
name, or password. There also might be a provisioning problem with your ISP.
Note: Unless you connect manually, the modem router will not authenticate using PPPoE until data is transmitted to the network.
