The Green light is the only thing that is on. Nothing works, not the switch, not the router. I think it is completely dead and needs refurbishing. If so who repairs these devices ? Do you ??? Please help

The warranty on a Netgear is sinfully long, like maybe 5 years, so It's unlikely that it is out of warranty.

Somewhere on the back of that unit, there ought to be vent holes, only one of them hides a reset button. Get a paper clip and push the reset button untill all the lights go out and come back on in the router. Now connect a network cable to the box and your PC. You may have to set your PC to 192.168.1.5 and log into 192.168.1.1. (it may also be 0.5 and 0.1 by default).

Netgear will be in default and let you set this up just as if you had taken it out of the box.

You may want to check netgear.com for manuals and repair info.

Laptop stopped picking up Internet. Went in other room and the desktop couldn't find internet either. Logged off both and checked the Netgear box and the lights were all yellow, not green. There isn't...


Unfortunatly, if it won't even power up anymore, there no way to even diagnose what the problem might have been. sorry to say, but i think it may be time for a new router.

After a power failure, the internet light in my router is red. I tried all the usual, switching on and off, resetting, disconnecting from phone and power line for several hours. Nothing makes the internet...


a red led usually indicates an error or defect. if removing the power for several minutes (or hours like you did) does not reset the error, then i'm afraid that you will have to replace the device completely. however, the root cause may still be found before the router. have you tried unplugging and replugging the modem as well?

Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless Router will not connect to pannaway dsl modem with same settings as router I am replacing. Dynamic IP address setup. Modem light continously blinks orange. No internet light.


1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
(I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as 192.168.1.254)
I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
But it won't work!
Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.

Blinking power light - router not working properly


Blinking power light on the Linksys routers indicate 2 things. 1st is firmware problem, 2nd is the worst one which is defective router. You can still revive it if you can reload the firmware. If not, it's a dead one and you need to purchase a new one. And man, your router is a very old one. You must switch to wireless G router, its 5 times faster than your wireless B and it only cost 30 or 40 bucks

Green power light is off. Red light stays on. Tried unplugging, resetting, etc. Wondering if it's completely shot?


Hi Jeff,

Thanks for using fixya

The red light on power means that the diagnostic for the modem is on, and when this is on this means that the memory or another component of your modem is at fault. Usually this can be resolved through a firmware upgrade to be applied by 2wire, but note that 50% of the time, when the diagnostic light is on, the device is dead.

To have this issue resolved, you may refer to your ISP or 2wire, if it cannot be revived, the least they can do is provide a recommendation.

Internet cutting on and off


If you haven't done a firmware upgrade I think doing so will be of a benefit to your problem! Just remember to backup your router settings beforehand! Hope this helps!

After doing a reset on the router, check ip address of your pc. If pc is getting 192.168.x.x, that means that the dhcp server of the router is still functioning.

You can do a FIRMWARE UPGRADE ON YOUR ROUTER.

You can contact Netgear tech support so they can look at this also.

Good Day

The problem is that the radio is dead inside the unit, if you open the box and pull the card out the wired portion of the router will come back to life! so at this point all you have is a internet router.
