The wifi light on my comcast xfinity router wont come on

The wifi light on the wireless gateway(852) comes on when powered on,once the modem is provisioned the light goes off and I can not get it back on. I tried to reset it,unplug it, hold the WAP button down nothing works, it came on so I do not thin its the modem. Any ideas??

Log into the gateway and check that wireless is in fact active.  If wireless is disabled, it should be out.

Mine just started doing that this morning, so I resetted it. The hardwired internet works just fine, but the wireless is not showing up and I went under my gateway and wireless is showed to be up and running

Time to get a replacement, then.
