Whenever I plug the router in, the lights flash on for maybe 10 seconds and most, then go out. Obviously I can't get through the startup CD with this problem. The wizard recommended holding the reset button for 10 seconds then releasing and waiting for the lights to go out; that never does anything.

Re: wireless router doesn't stay on
Try this one press and hold the reset button for the router for 30 seconds while its power ON then after that power down the router for 10 seconds then plug it back in, then try to run the setup CD again for the router and by the way dont forget to disable the security software installed on your computer because sometimes it will block the connection of your router to your computer.
If still having the same problem this router may be bad and you can try contacting Dlink for further troubleshooting or better have the router replace if its still new...

Re: wireless router doesn't stay on
Check the power source.
if the power source is verified to be working ok, try to press the reset button for 30 seconds to a minute while it's plugged in to the power source then turn it off for another 30 seconds then turn it on.
if the problem still persists, there could be a problem with the device itself and if it's still under warranty, replace it

If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.
Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area.
If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:
The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.
Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.
Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.
Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.
If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.
The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.
There are two things to try:
Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.
Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.
Most retail routers do not come stock with bridging capability. In order to accomplish this you would need to flash the firmware on the router with another like Tomato or DD-WRT. While this WILL give you the bridging capability it will also void your router warranty. However, flashing with an this alternate firmware is usually very beneficial because it will give you complete control of your router's capabilities. If you need help setting up the bridging, or managing any other features of the firmware you can find support forums right on the site that you download the firmware from that will assist you in doing this. Since you are using a TRENDnet router, DD-WRT is probably the best way to go. You will need to search for your router here: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices#TRENDnet and download the appropriate firmware to flash.
Welcome to Fixya. If you want to reset the router all you need to do is to press the reset button at the back of it for 5-10 seconds using a pen or paperclip. Make sure that the router is turn on and you will see the light will start flashing when you poke the button.
If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya
well this can be caused by many problems the green light means that the wireless card is working properly but you should check to make sure that when you try to connect that you are on the right channel by default many routers broad cast on channel 6, 10, or 11 if this dose not fix your problem i would suggest resetting your wireless router and reconfiguring it as it may be a configuration error on your router.
Since wireless is not working better if we reset and reconfigure the router, to reset it press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds using a pen and then power it off for 10 seconds and that's it the router is reset and you just need to run the setup CD to reconfigure it back.......
First unplug your router, then unplug your modem and for 10 seconds. Next plug the modem back in and wait it to reboot(on mine this a series of 4 lights that light up in sequence, when the 4th light stops flashing, reboot is complete). Finally plug your router back in.
I use these and the previous model without any issues.
1. They must be plugged into the wall socket. It's okay to use an extension cord between the adapter and the wall, but never a surge suppressor or UPS 2. The master need to be connected to you router 3. To test your connection do the following -Plug the master into the wall at the router location -Plug the slave into the outlet where the computer will be -Press and hold the setup button on the slave unit only for 3-5 seconds The leds on the slave will flash for a second or two and then turn solid. The number of solid lights you see tell you what your connection speed will be 0-no connection, 1-<10MB , 2=-10-30MB, 3->30MB.
I always unplug the ethernet cables from the adapter when testing, but I don't know if that is necessary.
I have never gotten less then 2 leds in my house, but it's new.
or just password: admin ...no username
or...there is a reset button the back of the router where the cables go, its a pin sized hole. grab a paper clip and stick it in there and press and hold the button for about 5-10 seconds...all the lights on the front will flash and it will reset to defaults
then try the above user names
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem
Step 1try to connect your computer directly to the modem and check if you will also experience problem
Step 2: Shutdown the computer. Step 3: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 4: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 5: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear
stable. Step 6: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 7: Power on the computer on and configure router settings if neede
Step 8:test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, maybe you need to upgrade the firmware of your router
