Recovering a dead TP-LInk Router

My router Archer C7, stop working suddenly. No flashing LEDs, cannot connect to it. Use the serial connection to the UART, and found it stops at the boot up stage, cannot find the apps to run......

Found the flash on the board, and put pressure on the flash IC. The unit comes up again and working.......

Put some flux on the flash pins, and run a hot solder across the pins. All working now.

My problem is dry joint of the flash. Others may have corrupted software and the serial connection will be a great help.

How do I reconnect my Panasonic Bluetooth to Netflix? It suddenly stopped working and we are paying for Netflix but not getting it

Restart your router (pull power for 10 secs and replace). Wait for the router to reset and reconnect. I have found that internet connections to devices often have difficulties reconnecting from time to time. It may be the issue of automatically assigning IP addresses?

I would say you have a problem with the router unless you are not reading the situation correctly, the other alleged connections will not be accessible for any reason unless you are the one paying for that connection, it would be illegal otherwise, so i am going to assume that you have a faulty router.

I have D Link DIR-300 Router. It was working fine cuople of days back but now Its not letting me connect to the Internet. I am able to connect to internet if I bypass the router and directly connecting to modem. But when I am trying to connect wireless its not identifying Internet although I am able to connect to my wirless network. All the LEDs of the modem and the router remains on. Can someone suggest what could be the issue? I am using Windows Vista.

If a router was working flawlessly but suddenly stops working in the way you describe the most common issue are either connections that have become faulty [check wiring, swap out cables to see if any have gone bad] or settings/firmware have become corrupted.

If the latter bypass the router and go to the D-Link support site: http://www.dlink.com/support/

download the latest firmware for your router and follow the instructions provided for flashing the ROM to correct any corrupted code.

Remember to use the administrative functions through the browser access [usually accessed by typing this address: into the browser for D-Link routers] to save all your settings to a file so you can replace them after flashing the routers ROM, for doing so will have reset those settings back to factory defaults.

Hope that helps.

logitech ex110 keyboard stopped working all of a sudden. unable to connect. the mouse still works fine. checked the batteries, they are ok.

First make sure the receiver is plugged into the computer. Second make sure you have fresh batteries in the keyboard and they are installed in the correct orientation. Then try the following:

1. Press the Connect button on the receiver. The receiver's LEDs will go into a sequential flashing to indicate that the receiver is ready to accept a connection.

2. Press the Connect button on the bottom of the keyboard. The receiver's LEDs will now stop flashing sequentially. Then all the LEDs go off briefly, then they will all flash once before returning to the state it was in before the connect button was pressed.

3. Your keyboard should now be connected to the receiver.
