CNet wireless router Model CWR-854V. is causing my Ethernet lite on my DSL modem to blink causing me not to be able to get on internet. Changed all cables no help disconnected Router and modem works...

Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the DSL modem, bypassing the router, turn the modem off, turn the modem on, wait 60 seconds, and restart your computer.

Does the Ethernet lamp still blink when Windows is booting, and when you are using the Internet?

Turn the DSL modem off.
Turn the router off.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem, and connect it from the computer to the router.
Turn the router on, and wait 60 seconds, then turn your computer on.
After Windows is running, click Start.
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Press Enter
Look for output like: default gateway........
If the string starts with '192.168', then your computer *IS* "talking" to the router.
Now, use an Ethernet cable to connect the WAN port on the router to the DSL modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer, and you should be able to web-surf.

Wireless not working There is no blinking light Why

Usually when there is no blinking light, it means that it has no power or has no internet connection.
To resolve, see if the device has power, and check that it is turned on If it has power and is turned on, check the Ethernet (giant telephone cable). See if you can get Internet on a laptop if you plug the Ethernet into the laptop.
If you can not get the internet from the ethernet cable there is a problem with another device along the line.
Good luck!

Why do my Ethernet and Internet light keep blinking?

Some routers blink to show there is ACTIVITY on the ethernet and internet ports, For example you broadband modem is connected to a port on hte back of your router this has a light it would blink on some routers to show activity, and likewise with the ethernet side.

If you have internet access and have zero issues this is NORMAL.

WRT55AG router- wireless lights blink on and off and no ethernet?

If you plug in computers on the ethernet ports and they dont light up at all but you are sure that the cables that you are using works as well as the ethernet port on your computer that means that the unit is already defective. You can contact 8003267114 for replacement if its under warranty

The ethernet light should not blink at all. The first thing to try is a new ethernet cable. If the problem still persists, then you need to check with your internet provider.

My ethernet light is blinking

Make sure you have internet. The ethernet light is blinking because what ever u have plugged into it is talking to the modem. The modem will then take that request and ask for it on the DSL/internet line. Make sure the DSL light is steady on and the internet light is on or flashing with activity.
