How can I fix Spectrum router blinking red issue?

We want to see a solid blue light, which indicates that the router has been properly connected to the internet.

Here are some solutions to the blinking blue issue:

Fix 1 – Check the cables and connections

An untied cable or connector could prevent your router connecting to the Internet, resulting in the blinking blue light.

You should tighten and check the Ethernet and coaxial cables regularly. You should also pay attention to the fact that the metal pins on the coaxial cables must be straight, even if there is visible damage.

Also check whether the Ethernet cable is properly connected – one end into the modem’s Ethernet port and the other in the WAN port on the router.

When you’re done checking the cables, check whether the Spectrum router has turned solid. The following fixes can be used if the status light continues to blink blue.

Fix 2 – Restart the router only

Unplug router from power source. After a few minutes, plug it back in. Wait for the router to connect to the modem. Hopefully, you will see a solid light.

Fix 3 – Restart your network

When we say to restart your network, we don’t mean to factory reset the router but to simply unplug both the router and the modem from the power supply and connect them again. This is how to properly restart your network.

  • Unplug both the modem/router from the power supply.
  • Disconnect the battery from the modem if it has one (Don’t forget to connect it later).
  • Give it a minute (2-3 minutes).
  • Connect the modem to the power source.
  • Give it a minute (2-3 minutes).
  • Reconnect the router to the power source.
  • Give it a minute (2-3 minutes).
  • Your Spectrum router’s LED light should be now solid blue

This will usually resolve the problem. However, if the Spectrum router light continues to blink, move on to the next step.
