The DW6000 uses power supply 1031105-0001. If an incorrect power adapter was used, fatal damage can be inflicted on the DW6000 itself.

Assuming no multimeter is available, carefully feel the power supply case with your hand. If it's cold, it's not working. If it's hot, it's likely malfunctioning. A properly operating power adapter should only be warm to the touch.

If the power supply feels ok, remove the AC end of the power cord from the electrical supply. Remove the DC end from from the back of the 6000. Wait for two minutes. Push the DC end back into the 6000 receptacle. Take care to make sure the connector clears the circumference of the access hole, it should ultimately seat with an audible snap. Plug the AC end back into the electrical supply. Observe the front for LED activity

I must read between the lines here, but I think you're saying you've already determined you have a known good power adapter. I still advise you to confirm that the DC end actually seats in YOUR DW6000. The hole through the plastic case on some is not aligned properly with the receptacle inside. Care must be taken to ensure that the DC plug actually goes THROUGH the case, and seats on the receptacle with an audible snap.

If that doesn't work, the DW6000 itself has likely failed internally. Should this be the case - and this is only my opinion mind you - but I would NOT replace it with another DW6000. That's a giant step sideways. I'd view the failure as an opportunity to upgrade to the new HN7000S (not to be confused with the older DW7000). The HN7000S is compatible with your existing outdoor equipment and cabling.

Unfortunately no. Hughes (the parent company of Direcway) has an exchange-only policy with regard to failed equipment. Short of exchanging it under warranty for a refurbished DW6000, you alternative is to take advantage of the discounts offered as a DW6000 user upgrading to a HN7000S.

I can't speak for the prices in your area. But here in America upgrading the modem only is a one time cost of USD$200 outright. If you sign a 15 month service agreement, the cost drops to USD$50

And Direcway has had a name change. They're now HughesNet, hence the HN prefix in front of the newest 7000S modem.
