Hello I am new to the forum and am actually asking for help with a problem with my son's modem. I have kind of limited information but he has a Westell 6100 modem and has verizon for an internet provider. They have been using their computer without difficulty and this morning were unable to connect to the internet or e-mail. They tell me that the red light is on where it says "intenet" on their modem box. Device manger says that the modem is working correctly. Any answers or suggestions, I hope? We use our web cams frequently because he is across the country in oregon. Thank you!

When the red light on the modem appears at internet it means the modem has disconnected from the service this could be an authentication issue, or maybe there´s a problem on the line I would strongly advice you to contact verzion tech support, to verify which one of this problems is affecting the modem.

this is how to resolve your issue
-push and hold the reset button at the back of the modem for 30 secs.
-if it asked you for authentication, the username will be admin and password is password
-another authentication will appear, just enter "admin" on the 3 boxes the click change then ok button
-you will see the westell home page, click the profile editor button
-then another page will appear
-click the "release button"
-after that, click renew button
--powercycle your computer and modem
-that's it!
