How to fix blinking red Broadband light on Gateway

Flashing red Broadband light on Gateway box.

 

We had a storm last night in my area and now Uverse TV and Internet will not work. But I dont have any notices about service outages.  I tried rebooting the Uverse box, after that did not work I checked the Gateway and noticed a flashing red Broadband light. All cords are connected. I tried the reset button on Gateway, as well as unplugging the power and reconnecting. Nothing worked.

 

I called tech support only to be put on hold for over an hour so I finally gave up on that.

 

Any assistance or tips would be greatly appreciated!!!

acarpen54 - If the gateway does not come back automatically or after a reboot, you need a tech. Could be the wire is open or the gateway is fried. If you cannot get through by calling, you could try an on-line chat if you can go to a place with internet access.

Last time I called I could not get past Mr. Auto test. He scheduled the next available appointment. That should work for your case.

Thanks. I've been trying to chat from my phone, but just got locked up where I couldn't send anymore messages. Argh
