Default DGN100 dsl blinks, won't connect

I have a working setup with a DG824M, which I want to replace with the DGN1000/N150. I followed the setup cd, but the dsl light keeps blinking green and then going off.

I plugged all the cables back into my old 824 - works fine.

Do I have a duff one, or is there something I can try to get the DGN to connect?

You may need to set it manually:
1. Type the IP of your modem on your browser (for ex. 192.168.0.1) to access the gui.
2. Check on Basic Settings if everything is correct (Encapsulation, Login and password, etc..).
3. Check on ADSL settings if everything is correct (Multiplexing method, VPI/VCI, etc..). You can verify those settings from your ISP or by comparing the settings that you have from your old modem.

Well, I did wonder about that, as my isp gives me a fixed ip and requires a name and password. So I tried the manual method, as you suggest, but got the same result.

As I understand it, the dsl lamp should connect fully anyway, before getting to the username stage.

No, it was not supplied by the ISP - I bought it about 6 years ago and installed it with no problems. Since then, it has 'just worked'.

did you use correct DSL VCI/VPI setting in the DGN100 interface?

I think so, but I'll check it (not at home now until the weekend).

Thanks for the suggestions!

The setup was exactly the same as the 824. I plugged it in again this morning and left i for an hour, but no change - dsl lamp just blinks a few times, then nothing for about 30 seconds, then blinks again.

Is it possible that the line quality is not that great, such that a more modern box has trouble where the older one is okay? I'm on 8Mb, and getting 6Mb throughput.

some modems are picky so possible line issues.
