Re: Red light on modem phone

Try turning modem off for a few minutes and then back on. If phone light still red try resetting modem by pressing reset button for at least Ten seconds. The reset button is located behind a hole in the chase and will need to use a bent paperclip or similar device. On Gen 2 modem's reset button is on back next to LAN port 2. On some earlier modems reset button is on front below power button.


Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
