Recently power was restored after long power outage, AEBS dont work

The device lits up, a radio signal is emitted, everything seems to be OK, but the WAN port seems to be not functioning. After a week without power because of several days and rain and thunder storms, when power was restored, the modem lit up, but is not working. Any suggestions?

Try the following, in order, checking for Internet access after each step, until resolved:

1. If the modem has a reset switch, use it to reset the modem. Wait at least 5-10 minutes for the modem to initialize.

2. Remove power from the modem. If it has a backup battery, remove this as well. Wait 5-10 minutes. Replace the battery, and add power back to the modem.

3. Perform a complete power recycle of your network components as follows:

<b>Modem/Router Power Recycling - Quick</b>

o Power-off the modem, AEBS, & computer(s); Wait at least 5 minutes.

o Power-on the modem; Wait at least 5 minutes.

o Power-on the AEBS; Wait at least 5 minutes.

o Power-on the computer(s)

If this fails to get the modem to "recognize" the Internet router, then try the "Full" version.

<b>Modem/Router Power ReCycling - Full</b>

o Power-off the modem, AEBS, & computer(s). (Wait at least 30 minutes. If possible, leave the modem off overnight.)

o Power-on the modem; Wait at least 15 minutes.

o Power-on the AEBS; Wait at least 5 minutes.

o Power-on the computer(s)

4. Contact your ISP to have them perform a "modem reset."
